Arrived at the Art'Otel on a Saturday afternoon in early April for a girly weekend trip. Staff were most pleasant and were happy to assist us and answer any questions / give recommendations.
We were given a brief hotel tour of the facilities and then whizzed up to a fab room!
There was fantastic (yet quirky!) modern art works throughout the hotel and it felt very safe as you had to use your own room key card to access the lift/spa.
The room was spacious and had gorgeous Elemis products in the bathroom.
Although a little 'see-through' with translucent windows between bedroom and bathroom, everything worked well in the room and we were made to feel very welcome.
Slept very well as beds were huge and comfortable. Temperature was just right. Cleanliness was immaculate and the mini-fridge could be filled with all our chosen drinks *make sure you ask Reception to come and clear out the minibar if you want to use it for your own drinks as your account is automatically charged for each drink you remove/move in the fridge*
The spa area included a gym, sauna and pool with a mini cafe/relaxation zone (but this was at an extra cost if you fancied a beverage). Enjoyed a couple of hours in the spa as preparation for the adventures ahead!
Any queries we had were always dealt with at the Reception desk or via the room phone. I'd like to take this moment to thank Janika for her fantastic recommendations and Jamal for his great sense of humour! :-D
Breakfast was included and was a great continental selection plus the choice of some hot 'English breakfast' style treats, of which someone came round to your table to take your order. The bar in the hotel was also very nice! We had a few dishes to share from their tapas style menu which was truly scrumptious (scallops & samphire, foccacia & oils, ravioli pasta, cured meats) and washed down with cocktails and prosecco :) A fair price and being a hotel guest we got a drink on the house!
The hotel is opposite the Centraal Station and only a short walk / tram ride to all other amenities. Perfect!
Great cafes and restaurants around the area so only a short walk to find something scrummy.
My friend and I rented some bikes from around the corner called 'Yellow Bikes' for just a couple of hours, which was very reasonable and a must-do when in Amsterdam!
Along with the Heineken Experience, a trip to Vondel Park and plenty of exploring down all the different streets.
Would highly recommend this hotel to couples or small groups of friends who are looking to enjoy a short yet luxurious stay.
Cannot fault the place/area/staff one bit! Nothing was too much hassle.
Thank you Art'Otel!!!!! x
