We stayed at the Moevenpick the day before we got on a river cruise. We arrived at 8 a.m. and when our room wasn't ready, the reception staff gave us a key for the fitness center so we could take showers. Once the room was ready, the bell staff brought our luggage to the room immediately. The room was clean, quiet, and comfortable. We were able to get some quality sleep to recover from jet lag.
The hotel is just a bit outside of the walking area downtown, but it is easy to catch Tram 26 to the Central Station, to walk, or to get the hotel shuttle. A nice benefit is the convenience to the dock area for the river cruises. We were able to see the ship and could easily get on board from the hotel, without any additional vehicles. The hotel has a good relationship with Viking River Cruises (the cruise we were meeting) and is geared for the before or after cruise travelers.
Our only suggestions - provide the shuttle to Central Station more often than every half hour. Also, provide better information about the shuttle. When we wanted to catch it, all of the spots were taken. If offered more often, maybe reservations wouldn't be as precious. The tram is convenient though - very easy.
All in all, though, we enjoyed our brief stay at the Moevenpick. One other nice convenience - very close to a nice restaurant - Fifteen Amsterdam - well worth the visit.
