We booked for our one night in Amsterdam before a drive into Germany.
An early arrival didn't cause any problem and the staff could not have been more pleasant and helpful. It was hailing on arrival but it didn't seem to dampen their enthusiam.
The location is convenient, not too far from the airport, parking is charged but it efficient. The decoration is pretty in your face, bright and young (hence the kooky!) but the rooms were well organised. Of course not large but clean and neat. I was surpised not to find any shower cap
or toiletries or even a face cloth (wash cloth). Liquid soap is in a dispenser on the wall. But hey, this isn't five star after all. Tea making facilities in the room are fine.
The windows open, which would be super in warmer weather but we left them closed in late October!
Breakfast buffet wasn't so great so we opted for the healthy option. It was cornflaked which surprised us... no muesli but the fresh fruit was just fine.
The road outside is quiet thanks to the triple glazing and we saw hundreds of personalised bicycles carring babies, toddlers,shopping. Really interestsing coming from Hong Kong where so few can be seen.
Generally this is good value for a city centre hotel in Amsterdam where prices are generally high. You might need your sunglasses for the decor of bright red crosses everywhere, on carpets, walls..... The friendliness makes up for the in your face design. The bed was two singles togther with separate duvets but it worked out fine.
