We drove up from Bruges to visit Amsterdam and needed a hotel with parking facilities nearby - this was perfectly located, a few minutes from the ring road with secure underground parking, albeit at a price (but parking is costly throughout Amsterdam). Why on earth the previous reviewer paid 23 euros per trip for a taxi into the centre is beyond me. The 48 bus stops right outside the hotel and takes 6-7 minutes to reach the central station. From there its an easy walk or one of the many trams into the different central districts. A four day pass for all trams and buses is available for the cost of one taxi ride. At no point over the 4 days did we have to wait longer than 10 minutes and usually less than 5 so this was an excellent choice.
For the price of the room, the quality and the laid back atmosphere in a city where very average hotels charge exorbitant rates, this is excellent value for money. The staff were pleasant and helpful. We would happily return.
It has 2 outdoor pools alongside, provides surprisingly good food in the Bistro and has clean and comfortable rooms. We experienced no problems with noise, cleaning or anything else mentioned in earlier reviews so must assume that they were simply unlucky.
