We booked the hotel two weeks before going due to a great offer we caught online. We arrived at 10 pm at night and were asked if we wanted to upgrade to an executive suite (after we got the yummy chocolate chip cookie, a nice touch!). We declined that, then they said they only had a disability access room available, but we could change that the next day if we wanted. After seeing the room we decided we didn't need to change the room. We got a view towards the court yard (sea side which was on the other side of the hotel compared to the railways) and the room was huge. The bathroom had a big shower and a bathtub. There was plenty of space in the bedroom. In the closet there was an iron and ironing board, something you don't see at every hotel.
The breakfast buffet was amazing, I especially enjoyed the selection of fresh fruits. The service in the reception was nothing less than perfect and we also got to borrow umbrellas.
The hotel is centrally located in Amsterdam, only a five minute walk from the train station whch is very convenien. Red Light District and Chinatown are only five minutes away where there are lots of restaurants and cafes. If you are going to Rijksmuseum I would consider taking a taxi though.
We would definitely stay at this hotel again if we were to visit Amsterdam again, highly recommended!
