We had a smoking room in the glass corridor connected annex. This is a novelty in itself in Europe these days. The room was clean and the bed very comfortable. The lights had a strange configuration and were a bit too bright over the bed (my husband says I am being picky). Tea and coffee facilities for first thing, and the free wifi was very useful for looking things up before a days sightseeing.
Transport into Central station normally very efficient (Number 48 outside hotel), but be warned, it slows right down on Sundays-this also includes the trains out to the airport, we almost came unstuck by not leaving adequate time. Tram system magic! We didn't get a tram map which would recommend as we had to keep going back to Central to get the next one. We hadn't been sight seeing in Amsterdam for over 25 years so found the 53 Euro 76 hour pass terrific as it gave us two cards, one for buses and trams, the other for entrance into museums and galleries free, plus a canal trip. Next time we will opt for the transport only card having done the major sites this trip.
On the whole it was a nice place to stay, reduction in bus service on Sunday did cause a bit of stress but now we are aware of the problem wouldn't have any reservations about staying in this hotel again.
The breakfast at 17 Euro seemed excessive, full English if that is your choice available for at little as 5.50 Euro near Central station.
