A perfect choice for a romantic Valentine's weekend. We had booked a weekend including a boat tour of the canal on Sunday but this was cancelled because the canal was frozen for the first time in 15 years. Far from being a disappointment, this really enhanced the weekend allowing us to walk through Amsterdam on top of the water, with people skating past us. Wonderful! The hotel was well appointed and the staff were friendly and helpful. We booked a canal suite and this was lovely, on two floors with the Zensation white theme which was very relaxing and had every amenity you could think of including a sophisticated AV centre with DVD, iPod docking etc which was more than enough for anyone. The bed was huge and the view of the frozen canal was spectacular. On Saturday we dined in the Vinckles restaurant which is widely regarded as the best in Amsterdam and we find it hard to disagree, with the most sumptuous menu and an excellent accompanying wine list. We would definitely go there again. On Sunday we tried the 'high wine' evening, which was also well chosen and very enjoyable. Throughout both evenings the staff were friendly and courteous. The limo transfer from the airport was well worth it, with a friendly driver giving us a historical tour of Amsterdam on the way to the hotel. The hotel is sited just on the edge of the nine streets so perfect for shopping and coffee houses, and was about 20 minutes by car from Schiphol, so great for the quick weekend getaway. Overall we would thoroughly recommend this hotel for anyone wanting to enjoy a quiet and romantic weekend in Amsterdam.
