Wonderful stay
We had a wonderful stay at this hotel. The staff was wonderful; Rebecca, Merel, David, and breakfast staff. We plan on visiting Amsterdam again and would stay here again in a minute. The location was great too to the metro system and to popular sites. The breakfast was one of the best that we've had at a hotel. Highly recommend!
