We thought long and hard about where to stay in Amsterdam and I’m glad we did. When we later saw some of the other hotels we had considered, we were sure we had made the perfect choice for our 3 night stay.
The hotel is so easy to get to. A simple train ride from the airport (4 Euros each) then a 10 minute walk to the hotel. It’s so close to Central Station.
The hotel itself is clean and modern. Our room was simple yet it had everything we needed. The bed was comfortable, the shower gorgeous. We were on the 5th floor and the huge window offered views over the surrounding neighbourhood (don’t forget to close the curtains when changing!). The room was very quiet, we struggled to hear traffic, trains, rain or neighbours.
The staff were friendly and helpful (which matched our experience throughout Amsterdam).
On the negative side (and I am being picky here!) we would have liked to turn the aircon fully off, a harder pillow would have been nice and the food in the hotel was rather expensive. This last point wasn’t a problem as you don’t have to walk too far to find a choice of cafes and restaurants.
You must be prepared to walk if you book this hotel. Dam Square is approx 2km away on foot. This doesn’t take too long and is an enjoyable walk.
We booked directly with the hotel as they had the best price.
On the whole I would definitely recommend this hotel. If we ever return to Amsterdam, we would come straight back to Room Mate Aitana.
