The hotel has a nice lobby, beautiful restaurant and a great location. It is steps from many pubs and restaurants as well as a major shopping corridor. It is also right beside a tram/bus stop though the city is very walkable.
The room we had, room 509 was a "Deluxe American" room. It was smaller than what we were expecting as it was supposed to be a "step up" from the "Classic Room American" room. The room was one below the top floor and had a good view of the canal below.
The staff were friendly, very helpful and welcoming.
I would recommend this hotel for the staff and location. The room we had was decent if not special but was kept as clean by the staff.
The hotel was very conveniently situated for visiting local museums catching trams and accessing the canal boats. Lovely to be so near to the lovely Park.
As breakfast was not included in the price it would have been nice to have had tea/coffee making facilities in the rooms, after all most of the clients are tourists who return to the hotel pretty weary and in need of a drink. I have travelled extensively and it is unusual not to have these facilities. 15 euros for breakfast seemed a bit steep.
Staff were very pleasant but not very informative unless specifically asked.
Despite the comments,I would stay there again and recommend to friends and family.
A nice hotel close to transportation but a great geal of this fine city is within walking distance. Hotel offered a good breakfast but there were many food options available close by . Staff was very friendly and helpful . The only complaint was the design of the shower , the door had no seals which made it difficult to shower without flooding the bathroom .
We know Amsterdam quite well and chose this hotel due to its proximity to Museumplein; just an 8 minute walk for us (we are senior citizens) to drool in the Rijks, Van Gogh and Stadlijk museums.
If you have not been there BEWARE OF THE BIKES. The city has more bikes than people, and they are ridden at high speeds on the pavements, which double as bike lanes.
Home to Amsterdam’s big three museums, the Museum Quarter includes the Rijksmuseum, the Van Gogh Museum and the Stedelijk. The former is the huge national art collection. The Stedelijk is largely cutting-edge post-1945 art. The Van Gogh is home to 200 of the artist’s paintings. Nearby Leidseplein is the centre of Amsterdam’s more raucous nightlife, with famous clubs such as Paradiso and Melkweg. By day, visit the Art Deco Café Americain.
