The hotel was as expected - clean and pleasant. It was no more spectacular than any other 5* hotel I have stayed in but an enjoyable experience. However certain things were missing from the room, I have never been anywhere where a teaspoon isn't provided in the room - this however was resolved by housekeeping. Also we were allocated a lovely room with fantastic views, this however was slightly damped by the fact the bathroom door and telephone didn't work - once again resolved by hotel staff promptly, however when visiting a 5* establishment it would be nice to know that rooms had been checked before allowing guests to stay in the room. Overall a great hotel with a few niggles - but be aware any extras in the hotel come with a luxury price tag too!
Excellent location for sightseeing although in our case it was for family visiting. Our first room was noisy and really only suitable for one person with minimal privacy for the WC etc However the staff found us a much nicer room the next day and were very helpful. The décor and lighting are much too dark and the remote switches didn't work well. Although it was August and hot; the A/C lowest temp was 19C. The housekeeping was good. We didn't try the restaurant but it seemed popular and quite noisy.

The first thing that struck me about the hotel was it's resemblance to an old museum. The interior is beautiful: really special.
The bathroom was so gorgeous. It had curtains on the outside of the bath, and the bath was deep enough to go past my shoulders while I sat upright! There's also plenty of room for two, with surface space on either end for a glass of wine ;) The lighting was a bit dim, but it just added to the romantic and old fashioned atmosphere.
I would say that it's best to request a room at the back if you find it difficult to sleep with noise. The front is quite noisy as the hotel is on a main road.
The staff were so freindly and eager to please. They left a plate of biscuits in my room with a birthday message. Also, there are real coffee machines in the rooms! Fabulous.
Typical European hotel. Tiny room with just enough space for the bed. Beds were very soft, too soft for our taste. Hotel was clean. Continental breakfast was just okay, would have preferred to have eaten at one of the nearby bakeries, but everything was closed for Easter Monday.
The Pipe' (its derivation is a mystery) is a quiet residential suburb with a cosmopolitan bohemian air thanks to a large number of immigrants and the recent gentrification of the area by an arty crowd. Running through the centre, the daily Albert Cuyp Market is the largest in the city. De Pijp is also renowned for its restaurants which serve some of Amsterdam's best ethnic (Syrian, Moroccan, Surinamese, Turkish etc) food.
