From checking in to checking out, this hotel delivers! The staff at the desk were bright and friendly and instantly offered an upgrade due to the room not being ready. I can't compliment the bedding in the room enough! No wonder they offer you the
opportunity to purchase the same collection on their website :) (incidentally, I need that link please!). The hotel location was ideal.....overlooking the canal and only feet away from a variety of bars, restaurants and shopping. Without a doubt my husband and I will be returning to this hotel each year! Thank you!
The location is perfect! You are walking distance to the "I Amsterdam" sign as well as the Van Goh Museum. You can walk everywhere without needing transportation. The Staff was absolutely awesome. The bed was to die for - most comfortable bed
ever!!! You can't go wrong with the location and price on this hotel. It was clean and modern.
Checked in early to the hotel, the staff couldn't have been more helpful. The ron was spotless and so central to main tourist areas. On checkout we were given great advice on how to get back to the airport quickly and cheaply. We will return.
The first thing you notice is the very modern lobby, which is very well set up to relax in. That is good, because the check in is not until 2. Free internet in the lobby too ... we were on the sixth floor and tried to pay for internet, but there
was no wireless reception up there. MOMO was very fresh and good for lunch. The location by the park and the canal is very nice, and the museums and fashionable shopping are immediately accessible ... the city center is about a 20-30 minute walk, ten minute bike ride, or ten minute tram ride. Located near Leidseplein, which IMO was a loud obnoxious area (but quiet in room). Vondel Park is very close by and is beautiful morning noon and night and very safe. Trams are immediately accessible also. Delicious coffee with chocolates included with a drink in the lobby were great too. Overall, the location was nice, the staff was outstanding and very quickly responsive to any request, the room was very comfortable and the hotel is very modern. Only slight disadvantage is distance from city center and other areas, but the immediate area (Vondel Park, Museumplein) is great to hang out in also, though not as popular.
Hotel features (5 = best, 1 = worst):
Two free chocolates with any tea or coffee in the lobby, and the chocolate is fantastic!
Overall, a very good stay. A few things to be aware of, though. They don't issue washcloths, only a bath towel and a hand towel. We were there in January and it took a while for the heat to be effective. Closet/drawer space is limited. Also, on
Friday and Saturday nights their restaurant "Momo" is very loud with the music. We were 4 floors above it and the thumping of the bass stayed until they closed at 2 a.m., even after we called the front desk and they would ask them to turn it down.
