Stayed here over the Easter weekend with my boyfriend. Have been to Amsterdam a few times before and stayed right near Dam Square. Hadn't necessarily realised this was as far out of the main strip, however this def. didn't and wouldn't put me off returning. Yes it does take about 15-20 minutes to get into Central station via tram, but the transport is so efficient there and regular. The hotel itself is quite large, situated next door to the World Trade centre. On arrival we couldn't find anyone to help us check in, but eventually someone came out and allocated us a room. The rooms are simply WOW. SO glad I chose this place. We did opt for a room with a window as the thought of one without was not for me, however it literally was just glass. Didn't open and constantly had the curtain shut so no difference I suppose. We did see a room with window that faced the front of the building whilst they were cleaning it and I would go for that next time. Its so quirky and fun. Do note tho...if you are going away with someone you haven't known for that long...the bathroom has NO door so no privacy. It literally is just a walk in area. We did have problems with hot water, ie there was non!!! and spoke to reception about it. They had a boiler problem and apologised. We had hot water in the night but back to freezing the following day. They did apologise but I would have liked to have moved rooms as it only affected certain rooms in the hotel. I guess it was full!!? Bed was seriously comfortable so had a lovely sleep. Would highly recommend this hotel. Just be aware if you go out and stay out late you do need to get back and tram is the only method of transport...or long walk! We got a taxi one night and it's only 20Euro all the way back from Central station area - not bad at all. Will definitely return to this quirky find. Good value for money. Doesn't disappoint.
