This hotel has quite the history and quirkiness that we like about the Dutch! This hotel is nothing different. Me and my friend went here and went for a 2 star room. We got the one with the funky shower in the middle of the room....for a couple, great! For two friends, not so great. So we asked for another room and got one! Easy peasy! The room was clean, quirky and the beds massively comfortable. Clearly a place for people who want to go to Amsterdam to enjoy the city, not to go there for a hen party. Amsterdam Centraal is about 10 minutes away with the tram and the this little bit of the city had some nice cafes, bars, little shops and a grocery shop (Albert Heijn). We were being a bit tight with our money and bought foot at Albert Heijn and made lunchboxes.
The hotel itself has an expensive breakfast but the food there is actually really good and the staff are extremely helpful. There's also free coffee and tea on each floor, in the hallway, which makes up for there not being a kettle. I enjoyed my stay immensely and I will be returning there!!
