Been to this hotel for a short Christmas break this year. We stayed for three nights and based on my overall experience I would strongly recommend this hotel to others. There are some pros and cons and I highlighted them below:
Staffs are very friendly and always helpful. Check in was as smooth as possible. Lobby, coffee corner and the dinning room is very attractive and well maintained. Breakfast was great with plenty of choices. I particularly liked the concept of custom made omelette in the kitchen. It was very busy during the Christmas break and there was always long queue for the breakfast but the staffs managed everything quite efficiently and we didn't have to wait long. We had dinner for two consecutive nights in the hotel restaurant and the standard was quite high. The restaurant doesn't have a lot of selection but good enough for treating yourself for a lovely dinner. Within the lobby there are quite a few Apple Mac with printer and I found it very hepeful as I had to take print out after online check in. Location was excellent as the train station 'Amsterdam Rai' is very nearby and only 15 minutes from the Amsterdam Airport station which is just underneath the Amsterdam Schilpol airport. Number 4 Tram terminus is at stone throwing distance from the hotel and will take you to the city centre within 20 minutes.
The room was not as attractive as the lobby or dining hall. I was bit disappointed with the room size (which seems to be slight smaller than standard Novotel rooms) and expected the carpet was in slightly better condition.We were staying on the 12th floor and WiFi connection was very poor. There is also Ethernet internet connection available in the room but please note that you need to pay for that, however, the WiFi is free.
In general this is a good hotel full of efficient staffs and highly recommended especially if you are travelling as family with kids.
