We stayed here May 19-21,2014 and were in room #2 which is just off the lobby on the street side. The weather was very warm and as mentioned before there is no individual control of thermostat. That combined with the fact that the hotel was not even able to provide any ice for cold drinks was pretty disappointing. (Note -I asked two different employees about the warmness of the room and for ice.) Should have thought to ask for a fan but non was offered either. The extremely deep tub was a life saver once filled with cold water...yes it was that hot and the heavy drapes did little to help with the heat of the sun beating down on the street side of the hotel. Their response regarding ice was "they sell it all around here". Very vague answer as to where exactly and in my experience could not find anywhere within a three block radius.
On a positive note, the bed was very comfortable! As a side note, I have traveled in Europe quite a bit and am familiar with the differences between their hotels versus the US. However I had a much more comfortable stay (with individual thermostat and availability of ice cubes) on a previous trip to Amsterdam which was an "economy" hotel for one third the cost of this one. It all depends on what is most important to you, the ACH room was very pretty but creature comforts not to the minimum level I expect for the rate charged per night. The location was okay but didn't offer any better convenience than many many other hotels.
