We have stayed four times at this hotel. We both love Amsterdam, and this hotel is brilliantly located. It is a kilometer from Central Station, the trams stop 100 mts either side of the entrance, the Flower Market is literally around the corner, the Red Light district a short stroll through excellent restuarant and bar areas, and Dam Square is a half kilometer back towards Central Station. The hotel is on the route for tram numbers 4-16-24 and 25 - buy an unlimited travel ticket from Tourist Information (GVB ) situated opposite Central Station (mind the ongoing Metro works). These tickets are available elsewhere, but this office can provide you with all the information you need for your stay - these lines also take you to the Museums, the Markets, Anne Frank House, and the Westerkirk. Vitually all other trams can be caught in and around Dam Square.
The Hotel itself is four-star. However, apart from the Bed and the Bathroom, we rarely make use of the facilities, as we always stay on a room only basis. The hotel has an excellent coffee shop, and late check-out can be arranged where possible. Amentities within easy walking distance are excellent restaurants (hence room only basis for us - Breakfast at the Nieuwe Kerk (New Church) in Dam Square is brilliant); the central canals. and major shopping areas.
We went here as a couple, but it would be equally good for friends, familiy and solo. It is frequented by business people, but the business facilities are not brilliant e.g. the internet is a bit of a nightmare. However, we go to shut ourselves off from the rest of the world and enjoy the brilliant amenities that Amsterdam has to offer, whether it be sitting with coffee in a square or a bottle of wine by a canal and watching the world go by; checking out bustling markets, and quiet museums; eating in fine restaurants or simply window shopping. Needless to say we are going again later this year.
I think rooms are allocated on a Board basis. We are always allocated a room at the back on the firs...
