Conveniently situated in Amsterdam ZO, this hotel is only a short walk to popular venues such as Amsterdam ArenA, Heineken Music Hall, Ziggodome, and a large number of businesses. Also, only a couple of minutes leisurely stroll to Bijlmer ArenA station, which gives the traveller easy access to transport in and around Amsterdam; trains, Metro, buses, and taxis all run from here.
The hotel itself is a recent addition to the area, and is what you might expect for a new establishment. The workmanship in some places does appear to be "rushed", and if things such as loose power sockets don't irritate or worry you then you'll be just fine here. The view is nothing to write home about - it's nothing scenic. The breakfast buffet is ok, and the staff friendly and polite. The rooms are reasonably sized, although the sliding partition door (which either left the wardrobe open or the bathroom), did not fit soundly, and was a tad wobbly.
The bed was a little on the small side, and the mattress not one of the best I have ever slept on - if you have a restless partner, and you are not a deep sleeper, this could be an inconvenience.
I would rate the hotel lower, but the price here is key. We paid around 80 euros for the night, and given the extortionate rate of many hotels in Amsterdam, you'd be lucky to find a better hotel for the price. The price does fluctuate by date, however, so if it's coming in at over 120 euros/night - consider other options.
