How to Get There
Hotel is in a fab location and the rooms are satisfactory. However, please be careful when checking in. The receptionist took 50 euros and 25.50 euros from my debit card (He said this was a retainer and city tax). On leaving, the hotel made me pay 25.50 euros again as they said the first lot of cash was not taken from my card. On returning to the Uk I found they had taken the whole 100 euros from my account. That was a month ago and despite ringing, emailing and texting the hotel, I’ve not got my 75,50 euros back. Totally disappointed with the service and although I’m returning to Amsterdam soon, I will definitely not be using this hotel.
Firstly... Beauty of a hotel! Imposing and central position in a great location. Close to numerous bars, restaurants, eateries, shops, theatres etc. Bus and tram stop right outside. Easy walking distance to most museums and attractions. 20 minute walk to Old Town or short tram ride. For us, the staff made this hotel. Desk, Concierge and Bar staff - amazing. We had such a fantastic trip, due mainly to the advice and tips given by the staff. Eg. Great places for breakfast (better to use nearby Greenwoods for an amazing breakfast!) best directions. Best times to visit places etc. The American bar was superb - great place to start an evening! Would highly recommend hotel.
The location is simply unbeatable. Close to Vondelpark and on the canal next to one of the small squares gathered with people at night. Noise control isn't the best, but manageable. Foyer / public spaces are not much to speak of, but we personally loved our room facing the canal. I really enjoyed the sound system we connected to via Bluetooth. The bar connected to the hotel is *okay;* I wouldn't recommend going there unless you had no other choice. Their truffle fries were excellent, but the service was so/so. Very so/so. However, I'd go back.
