This was our 1st visit to Amsterdam. We stayed 2 weeks before Christmas for 3 nights. I found a great package through an on-line travel agent that worked out cheaper than booking seperate flights and hotel. We were approx £350 for both of us all-in. Bargain!
The hotel was lovely. Brilliant value for money. It has really friendly staff who allowed us to check in 3 hours early! This was wonderful as it meant we had 4 full days to explore. We were also able to leave our luggage in a secure room when we checked out as we had late night flights home too.
The room was perfect for a short stay. It had fantastic central heating (it was freezing outside!), a lovely big window that opened overlooking the hotel across the street, a large wardrobe with a safe, comfortable bed and a clean brightly lit bathroom. The room was cleaned each day.The room was fairly small but perfect for a couple for a short stay. Afterall we weren't visiting to spend a lot of time in the room.
We had breakfast the 1st morning in the hotel, it wasn't for me. The hot-food had gone cold and the breakfast room could do with maybe the radio playing or something to give it a bit more atmosphere. Everyone was eating in silence! Very strange for me! There was plenty of choice and everyone else seemed happy. Luckily we stayed room-only. I may have felt I'd been ripped off if I'd paid extra for B&B as there are so many lovely places to eat out for breakfast.
There is also a lovely little bar in the hotel which was great to come back to after a night out for a meal etc. It was no more expensive than any other bar which was great. The bar man was very friendly too.
The location of the hotel is brilliant. If I were to visit Amsterdam again, I would look this hotel up before booking anywhere else. Brilliant value for money restaurants near by, a short walk to the Van Gough Museum, the Fashion District right round the corner, Great tram links for everywhere you may want to visit. For me it was the perfect hotel for a Christmas break. We are considering coming back in the summer.
