Great value, fantastic staff
Posted Oct 13, 2016
Our standard double was in the back building of the hotel on the top floor up two flights of very steep stairs. Relatively small with limited hanging and storage space for clothes but just about enough for a short stay (we were there for 3 nights). Very comfortable bed and very very quiet with just two other rooms on our floor. No air con which was no issue at all during our stay but could be an issue in Summer. Simple decor with stylish en-suite. Could have done with additional dusting but otherwise cleanliness good.
Breafast included simple continental mix of meats, cheeses, croissants, cereals, juice and coffee/tea. Tasty and all self service in the hotels casual and stylish bar area in the lobby. Very relaxed and enjoyable.
Staff very friendly and well informed about the City. Tickets could be booked at reception for a number of attractions that helps beat queues.
Location wise the hotel is just outside the centre but only a short 15 minute walk making it a perfect location for those wanting to visit the rijksmuseum or van Gogh museum (both fantastic). Dam Square is a pleasant 20-25 minute walk away along the canals and through vibrant streets and squares. But if that is too far the tram runs regularly from outside the front of the hotel.
Price wise this hotel appears to be exceptional value and is a savvy choice for travellers looking for comfort, style and value.
