My wife and I travel frequently to Amsterdam for long weekends. We are familiar with this brand as they have just opened in one London and we heard some good things.
I have to say we were very impressed. The location is not where we would normaly stay but for getting around it's ideal being just a short walk from central station. All the action is either south or west from hotel. Don't believe the guide books telling you that the East of Amsterdam has been redeveloped and is now vibrant etc etc - it's still very much a work in progress and will take some years before heading further east from this hotel is worthwhile. The famous Sea Palace Chinese restaurant is just to the left of the entrance to the hotel, but that's about it.
The hotel has a lot of good things going for it - particularly the Sky Lounge providing great views over the city. Apple Mac TVs in the rooms are also great. Design, layout of the rooms is good. The staff we encountered were also very helpfiul, we had a couple of niggling problems with the room, but these were dealt with quickly and with no hassle.
Got a great deal through Easy Click travel on a stay for 4 pay for 3 nights offer. We mislaid the pre paid voucher, but again this was not a problem with the hotel contacting the company directly.
Only downside would be the location to the railway. Our room was on the back of the hotel and the double glazing wasn't up to the job - got very noisy at times. The hotel is clearly still "bedding in" - they don't have a system to handle moving tables or from inside to the outside terrace in the Sky Lounge, but I'm sure these will be sorted in future.
All in all a very nce stay, we'll be back.
