Staff were very friendly. Location was great. Felt the price was quite costly for the facilities on offer but the price probably reflects higher costs in central Amsterdam and due to the prime location. Didn't like the stairs but these steep staircases were prevalent in...More

saucier aspects would mean missing the opportunity to
