Shame about our problem.

We had a problem, when my wife had a jacket go missing from the room. We thought this could have been picked up accidental when cleaning, either sheets or towels thrown over it and taken out, we suggested this to the hotel, they came back to us and said this was not the case, and that was the end of the matter for them. As this was identified the evening prior to us leaving early next morning, we did not have chance to conclude with the hotel. Other than this we had no other issues with the hotel at all.

Location

Challenge finding hotel with Garmin and one-way streets. Parking is an issue. Hotel has great history and is centrally located. Internet access a challenge.

Buy an unlimited electric tram ticket for 24, 48, or 72 hours and travel all over the city. Four or five routes went through Dam Square.

Great location, convenient to everything

Room was spacious. We asked for an upgraded room (better view) for 55 Euros, but were given the upgrade for free.

We used the Hop On, Hop Off tour boat that starts on the East and West ends of the Central Station. For 22 Euros a person, you can ride for 24 hours and get off at any of the stops on the four routes that go everywhere.

Perfect location

The hotel is right in the center of things, yet the room was spacious and quiet. The concierge was very helpful. The only problem was that we could not regulate the water temperature in the shower which made showering unpleasant.

Location Location Plus Fabulous

Staying at the Kras made for a much better experience than previously because being on Dam Square was fabulous.I could be right there in the middle of everything and go back to the room whenever.The room was large which is impossible to find in Amsterdam.The place is amazing but i did not spend the money on the restaurants and all else they had available.I would not want to stay at any other place there.[...]
