We'd never been to Amsterdam before and after doing a lot of googling I decided on this hotel as it seemed to be within easy reach of everywhere we wanted to visit and good value for half term week.
The first great thing I would say is that we expected to be getting trams everywhere but in fact we never got a single one! If you are a speedy walker like me and my boyf you will find you can walk pretty much everywhere in Amsterdam. If you like to stroll you'll probably be better on a tram, although Rembrandt Plein is really close for great food and drink (The Old Bell).
The Hotel has a big staff team and they are all very welcoming and speak good English. We arrived from the airport at about 10am and although check-in isn't until 2pm the guy on reception let us have our room straight away. Also note you have to pay city tax on arrival (ours was €9 for 4 nights).
Our room was on the 4th floor, right next to the lift (slowest lift in the world but makes hilarious noises) which is a welcome alternative to the steep wooden stairs - although we never really had any problems with noise in the room. Room 406 was quite small but perfect for our 4 night stay, with twin beds pushed together, a safe, tea and coffee making facilities, shower, plenty of storage and 3 mirrors! The only downside was that the hairdryer in the room was strange looking and difficult to use, I've added a picture 'cos I don't think my descriptions will do it justice - I recommend taking your own if you need to use it every day. Daily room service is a nice bonus, making the beds and leaving fresh towels, but unfortunately never cleaning the teacups and spoons.
Breakfast is GREAT, as a girl who likes their food I was not disappointed. Tuck in! YUM!
Another thing, we got a return train ticket but we did notice that the hotel does a shuttle to the airport for €12 which is VERY good.
Finally, we found a quite sizeable supermarket 5 mins away, across the bridge L out of hotel and under the right of the AEGON building sign :) they sell a 6 pack of Heineken for €3.60!! and snacks of course.
