Quick trip to AmsterdamPosted Oct 26, 2013
Pros: Restaurant open very late (midnight).
Cons: Room was a bit sparse, nowhere to put clothes once they've been unpacked from the suitcase!
Location: Near to two main tram lines taking you to either end of the central part of the city
Although we crossed the wrong bridge trying to find the hotel and it took slightly longer than it should have, the hotel was great. Staff spoke English just as well as us, the fact the restaurant served food til midnight was a bonus (though breakfast at €18 each per night was a ripoff, suggest using the supermarket directly opposite). Situated a couple of minutes from a couple of different tram lines, one of which takes you directly to the station, the other takes you just south of the town centre. Suggest you buy a one/two day pass when you get on, act like an Oyster card and valid on any GVB-operated bus or tram in the city. Some of the "museums" aren't worth it, and we would suggest booking tickets online first for some of the bigger ones like the Van Gogh / Rijksmuseum. Having spent half hour in the queue for one of those, only to be told we were in the entry queue not the ticket queue, and the ticket queue was even longer... we gave up! Also suggest looking around a bit for lunch, we got conned a couple of times and lunch for two cost ~€50 on more than one occasion! One final note, the hotel description doesn't make it quite clear when booking. Despite the hotel description saying all fees are included, the price DOES NOT include the city tax which you have to pay when checking out. It isn't much, but if you're not expecting it...

Good location but disappointing hotel.Posted Oct 3, 2013
Pros: The location and the fact we could leave our luggage after checkout for couple of hours more.
Cons: Cleanliness, bathroom, and having double bed or being able to put two beds together. Also important, having kettle in the room!
Location: Location was convenient to get to either a centre or the central station. Interesting area converted from dockyards impressive flats and offices.
The location of the hotel was convenient; 2 min walk away from the tram stop that takes you to the centre or any other main areas of the city in about 10 min. When we arrived at the hotel, the receptionist was quite cold but polite. We were given two maps of the city and two keys for the room. Our room was located in the basement and it was narrow and dark. There were 2 separate single beds which we knew was a possibility, however, the beds were placed on the opposite ends of the narrow room and it was impossible to put them together. The bathroom was basic with a shower directly over the floor and there was a shower blade available to dry the floor. The cleanliness left a lot to wish for. The room was carpeted with two smaller rugs on the top. The carpet had visible stains and was simply dirty. Both the carpet and the rugs needed not only a deep clean but a hoover as well (the dirt in the corners built up to a very thick layer). The water from the bathroom that was building up during every shower, was leaking through to the room and wetting the carpet. There was no kettle available in the room which should be a basic facility. Although the bed sheets and towels were changed every day, the room was not cleaned. We had some old tea cups with a bit of milk in a jug that was also getting old, which was never taken away. The WIFI was meant to be available. That was not the case if you're in the basement. Barely any signal at all. Also, beware of city tax charge at check ou

A great find!Posted Sep 5, 2013
Happy to have room upgraded free of charge. Easy access to central Amsterdam, but in a quiet location away from the mayhem. Stylish hotel with very good restaurant. Breakfast was pricey.

Intersting and QuirkyPosted Aug 28, 2013 on Hotels.com
Location is saved by being adjacent to the tram station; the tram service into the City is excellent, the alternative of walking is a long and uninteresting trek.My three star room was OK, eprhaps slittle pricey but spotellssy clean. The storage for clothing was limited in the extreme and would have been a problem had there been more than one occupant. Interior of the hotel is simply quirky and quite novel, staff are friendly and helpful.Didn't try the £17.50 EU breakfast, ate omelettes in the cafe over the road instead, which were not great but sufficient. Overall a good base if you don't mind being out of town. Quiet an expensive ride if you plan on taking a taxi to and from the airport.

Comfy ServicePosted Aug 25, 2013 on Hotels.com
Excellent hotel with access to Amsterdam central station but the management needs to work on the Wifi on the ground floor, As the connection in my room was poor.

Great placePosted Aug 24, 2013
Pros: The location, its quirkyness and the information displayed on the walls about the building.
Location: It has a tram stop (Rietlandpark) directly behind it which is 3 stops, around 10 minutes, from Centraal Station which is very convenient.
I stayed here for 2 nights with my boyfriend and, as always with our budget, we are apprehensive when arriving. We were very pleasantly surprised! It's in a beautiful building located in the Docklands, and has a very interesting history, including once being a Nazi prison. The inside is like an artsy person's dream. There's something different everywhere and it's so well decorated. We stayed in a three-star double room and it was great. We loved the colour scheme and the minimalistic feel of it. I wouldn't recommend this type of room for non-couples as it (from reading reviews, I realise that most rooms are probably all very unique) didn't have two seperate 'rooms' for bedroom and bathroom; the bath was up a little step from the main bedroom area. The bed was very comfortable and the bath was massive! Overall, we were very happy with our experience.

Convenient,unique and architecturally significantPosted Aug 19, 2013 on Hotels.com
The hotel was a surprise in the way the Dutch designers incorporated their creativity into the historical ambiance of every room. We spent hours exploring all the lobbies and exhibits. the architecture of ur room was very interesting and comfortable. Our eleven year old granddaughter was enthralled. Quality of service was excellent. Quiet and easy to get to central Amsterdam.
