The only real problem was the builders starting work early on Friday outside in the courtyard but otherwise couldn't really fault it. I would stay there again next time it will be three nights to see more of the attractions around Amsterdam.

I stayed here for two nights in Amsterdam alone on business, and could not have been happier. The hotel is in a very cool, unusual building overlooking the Oosterpark. Room was extremely comfortable and well decorated. Breakfast and dinner in the restaurant were excellent, although the service was typical Dutch and really lacking compared to typical US service.
