The building is beautiful and the atmosphere relaxing and calm. The hotel is easy to reach from the airport and the location is good, near to the Museumplein. The staff is excellent - I did not recognize students from the "real" hotel team.
Unfortunately I got extremely ill during my stay in Amsterdam, so I spent most of the days in our room. When we ran out of pain killers and soft drinks (because of NYE every shop/pharmacy was closed), the hotel team gave us some medicine and sparkling water. They also sold us sweets, chips and soft drinks. Since they did not have any candy at the bar, the bartender searched some chocolate from the kitchen. If this is not excellent service then I do not know what is!
We had some of our few dinners in the hotel's bar. I ate hamburger which was really tasty but I would have expected better french fries for 16 euros. Because of the price of the breakfast (appr. 25 euros) we did not have it at the hotel. If you want to save your money and have your breakfast somewhere else, there are some really nice cafes nearby.
Our room was quiet and we did not hear anything from rooms next to us. The room was really romantic and suitable for a couple, but the lights are almost too dim. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. The ceiling was high (about 4 meters), so although our room was small, it was not cramped.
I will definetely come back!
