The hotel makes you smile as soon as you walk in as you're greeted by a charming bulldog statue.
Checking in was a pleasure as the staff were all very friendly. They were also helpful when it came to the surrounding area. They give you a map of the city on check in and highlight the fun places to go.
The hotel is in such a good location. There is a whole road of posh designer shops and restaurants really close to the hotel and a great market road in the other direction. Just outside the hotel there is a tram stop which has great links to everywhere in Amsterdam. There is also a lush green square which it lovely to relax in if you arrive before check in like we did.
They have one lift in the hotel which just about fits two people and a suitcase. If you have a big suitcase then good luck. The stairs are quite steep but I am rather unfit and I could still tackle them so they can't be all bad.
The rooms are small but I would say perfectly formed. From reading the reviews the main downsides I can see are the smaller, badly heated rooms and the noise. I would agree they are on the small side but we paid extra for a larger room which is definitely worth the few extra pounds.
It did get quite hot in the room and there was no air con so we had to keep the windows open. That in turn led to a noisy night. However it was nothing I couldn't sleep through as there is so much to do in Amsterdam during the day that by the time you get back to the hotel you're ready to sleep through anything!
I would definitely stay here again.
