How to Get There
At first sight the hotel was lovely, elegant design throughout and clean as expected.
During our stay though, it became clear that the cleaning personnel weren't even trying- our bed sheets have not been replaced once, during the entire week we stayed here we've only gotten one set of fresh towels, the complimentary small soap and shampoo we got with the room at the first day were with us during our entire stay, even though the empty bottles were clearly there for the cleaning person to see. The list goes on and on but the other aspects of our stay here weren't great either, with terribly thin walls, that any door shut in our floor would wake us up, and air conditioning that was stuttering most of the time.
Other aspects that were less critical to us but are worth mentioning are the smart TV and the breakfast.
The TV was awful- if you think about chilling with your Netflix, or even watching Youtube, you are in for a bad time- terrible UI, barely functioning at best.
The breakfast was meh, not the amazing organic varied breakfast as advertised, but nonetheless a decent breakfast.
The upside to this hotel was absolutely the location though, and if you are looking for a hotel in a great location it's probably the hotel for you; the hotel is one bus ride away from vondelpark, yet away from the noise and cluster Amsterdam emits. 5 min bike ride to a great supermarket, coffeeshop, a wonderful forest and many more.ll in all, it was a mediocre experience, and i would suggest looking for a different hotel if you can.
I’ve never written a review but I don’t recommend this hotel. The staff (except 1 or 2 of them) didn’t make their best for us to be comfortable. They weren’t nice with us, they always had the last word.
We had a room with twins bed altough we didn’t ask for it at all, so we asked for a big blanket and they told us they didn’t have it (but they have deluxe rooms ...). Our room hadn’t been done the day after so we went to the reception and asked for the furniture so we could do by ourself. You go to an hotel to get some rest and you pay for services that aren’t done. The worst hotel I’ve ever been to.
Clean room, kind service, perfect spot, Amsterdam suburbs, near to park, near to bus station, not far of vegan friendly restaurants, not far from super markets or bakery, I will choose it again, thanks.
