My husband and I spent two nights here for his birthday. The reception staff were very friendly and even noticed that it was my husbands birthday on our arrival day and wished him a happy birthday. They later followed this up with a card, bottle of Sake, and nibbles being delivered to our room whilst we were at dinner, a very nice gesture.
Our room was situated on the 17th floor and we had a lovely view over the canal below and over the tops of the houses. By choosing an executive room, this gave us free access to the Executive Lounge where they have soft drinks available, plus wines and a variety of nibbles from late afternoon onwards. There is also a PC and printer available for guest use which was handy for us to print our boarding passes for our return home..The bathroom was beautiful, with double sinks, large bath and separate shower and again a wonderful view. It is ideal to close the blinds whilst using the bathroom as the windows can be viewed from below, but due to the height of the floor, I am not sure passers by would see too much.
There is a lovely pool and fitness area which my husband said was excellent, but I did not partake.
The only downside for us was the meal we had in the Japanese restaurant on our first night. We found the service a little slow and did not enjoy the food. This may have been our personal tastes though as there were many other diners in the restaurant who seemed to be enjoying theirs. This would certainly not deter I us from re visiting in the future.
It it situated a little way out from the center of Amsterdam, which we did not find an issue as the local tram stops were just a few minutes from the hotel. There are also taxis available from the hotel if required.
All in all, a very lovely stay, a great hotel and lovely staff, from reception to doorman.
