"Special", "unique" are words I would use to describe the atmosphere at this hotel. When you penetrate into the building through the large and elegant main door, it's a big wow feeling! At the reception and in the hallway, colors are dark and atmosphere is very cosy.
I would say staff is also a bit different than in regular hotels...maybe a bit too cold and distant. We would have appreciated a warmer welcome, as warm as the hotel's design and decoration.
The bedroom was pretty but not outstanding, and I was really disappointed not to find any bathtube...which is a must for a 4-stars hotel. The room's decoration also looked a bit "cheaper" than the materials and elements used in public areas.
Breakfast buffet was very good, although some cutlery was missing at the buffet, and some guests used their hands to help themselves...the pastries served at the breakfast buffet are really cute and yummy (i.e. mini doughnuts, cupcakes...). Big Bravo for the breakfast room, which looks beautiful. I could have stayed there for hours.
Unique, but not perfect...Anyway, I would return to this hotel for a trip to Amsterdam!
