*Not too far from the city centre & if you don't like to walk, public transport is easy to get to.
*Very close to Artis Zoo & the Botanic Gardens.
*Safes in each room for your valuables.
*Mini fridges in each room... very handy seeing breakfast can set you back E17.50!! There's a superstore round down the road.
*The restaurant was expensive but the food was very good.
*Our room was near the bar but sleeping was fine.
*The bathroom was not what we call private. A frosted door (with gap down the side) & windows!! let you watch your room mate sat on the toilet. If you share a room with someone you either need to be good friends or stare fixedly at the TV. I know the Dutch are slightly more uninhibited than us Brits but really.
*Single beds are single beds. Double beds are single beds pushed together. I guess that makes the rooms more flexible. I just worry about people falling between the two.
*Thermostats are set on high. This'll probably be less of a problem as summers get colder & wetter.
*Breakfast is expensive. Best to get ingredients from the local superstore.
*Cleanliness is not next to godliness in this place. Hair was found in the shower. The throw on the end of the bed had seen better days. The used coffee cup was removed but the one with the dirty spoon in never moved. Oh & my room mate wished he hadn't looked under the bed. It hadn't been hoovered in a looooong time.
*And I'll mention the windows into the bathroom again. Did they run out of bricks?
In closing, this hotel is ok. It looks very swish on entering into the main reception. However, the hotel is let down greatly by the cleanliness which seems to be a second thought. And the continental breakfast is extremely overpriced.
Oh & be warned. City tax will be included in your final bill. We have no idea what this is but it works out as an extra E4.00 a night.
