We stayed at this hotel for one night when in Amsterdam for Business. We stayed here because it’s close to the ring road and we had to leave early the next morning but it is a bit of a trek into town. You’ll need to get the bus or tram. The stops are nearby and it’s about 20 mins ride. There’s no parking attached to the hotel as such but there is a car park next door which is actually very cheap for overnight parking and they throw in a free travel card which was very useful.
The hotel is a bit hard to find, tucked away in quite a residential area. It looked nice in the foyer on arrival but there was actually a lot of building work going on elsewhere in the hotel and the corridors were a complete mess which was a bit disappointing. I think they should probably have mentioned this at booking. There were ceiling panels all over the floor by the elevators and exposed ceilings and wires etc throughout. Doors were open to rooms where work was going on and it all just looked a bit of a mess.
My room was actually very nice and overall very good value but yes the rest of the floor was in a mess. The restaurant was nice, and I have to say the breakfast was the best I’ve had in Holland, lots of choice. Very pleased with it. I probably would stay there again for a business trip and I’m sure it would be tidier next time
