Great location even though not in centre as short walk to Tram and around 8 minute journey to Dam Square. Friendly and effecient staff where nothing is too much trouble. Sky Lounge has a good vibe for a late night drink before bed! Would definetly recommend this hotel to anyone who isnt fussed about staying in the centre.
Be aware of the fact that besides the build in stuff you will not find anything. No plates, no pan, no fork, knives, spoon...also it is not possible to borrow any at the hotel. With my friend we went to the shopping center (west part of city, called 44/45 or so, aprox. 20 mts by walk) and we spend just 20 euros in the penny markets there on everything we needed for the stay and usege of the kitchen.
The hotel's decor is modern and clean. There's a nice bar, a comfy smoking room, a vending machine with wine, beer, coke, water, crisps & chocolate. The computer is also good, as is the seating area in reception. The staff are some of the politest I have ever met in a hotel.
The rooms are basic, but also very clean and comfy. I can't comment on the Tv as I was too busy sightseeing to ever need it. The bed, however, was super comfortable and the tra and coffee facilities were useful.
Location wise, it was also brilliant, tram stop is a 5-7 min walk from the hotel and both the 1 and the 17 take you straight to centraal station via Dam square, and a 24hr pass is just €7.50.
This hotel earned 5 starts from me because it was the perfect, safest and comfiest base while my sister, brother in law and I had the best weekend of our lives.
I will be coming back to Amsterdam and I will definitely stay here again.
