This modern hotel is well located on a canal, a few minutes walk from the Rijksmuseum. This makes it on the edge of what is a very pleasant area, with lovely houses, and some very pleasant restaurants, and on the edge of a rather less salubrious area.
We came so that my teenagers could get a taste of Amsterdam, and needed a room that would sleep three.
We had a superior room, which was fine - two twin beds and a sofabed. The room was clean, but shabby, and probably dating from the early 1990s. It was a good size, and the TV had loads of channels, including 6 UK stations, which was handy for when the children were bored with site seeing.
The bathroom was immense, and had facilities for someone who needed disabled access, with a seated shower separate from the other one which was in the bath. The problem with this was that the shower screen leaked to such an extent that the floor was flooded after a fairly modest shower. This is fine as long as one is careful, but the floor was quite slippery.
We didn't eat at the hotel, although we had a drink one evening. We were staggered that the bar closed at 11pm, and although there is a pleasant courtyard to sit in and have a drink, this closes at 10pm because of the neighbouring flats.
Staff were helpful, and the hotel is clean. It is far from luxury, but fine for a couple of days in a city where hotels can be extortionate.
My sister had a queen room, which was fine for one, but would have been impossible for more than two.
We were there at a particularly hot time and the air conditioning really couldn't manage at all, so do be careful in the summer.
