My first trip to amsterdam and the hotel was booked by my now no longer friend who found it on a random site. I wasn't sure what to expect as I hadn't seen pics before the trip - but I wasn't disappointed! I stayed in room 529, which had a great view of the banking district, a huge shower and one of the softest beds ever. Staff were very friendly and approachable. The location is about 200 years from a metro station that leads directly to Centraal and further on to the airport via rail. If that's not enough, they have a to die for lemon meringue pie in the bar and a local beer which was less than €3. I've lost a friend but gained a great hotel which I'll be staying at in the future.
