Travelled as a couple for a new years break. We picked this hotel as we didn't want to be bang in the centre of Amsterdam. Hotel has a tram stop directly outside with regular trams passing by which take you into the centre of Amsterdam within 10 minutes. There is a shop opposite the hotel that is open till very late which is perfect for any late night snacks/drinks at reasonable prices.
Newly opened Smoke Palace just down the road which is worth a visit.
Spargos restaurant a bit further down the road which had great food/staff and served food and drink till late.
The hotel itself is lovely and modern looking. The staff were very friendly and attentive.
The hotel room was small but clean and recently renovated.
However, and unfortunately a big however, if you are going for more than one night and actually want a comfortable nights sleep I do NOT recommend this hotel as the beds were soooo soft (and when i say soft i mean really soft) and are only a double size (if that) which means if you are travelling as a couple there is just not enough room for the both of you. We are not a particularly tall couple, just average in height and we both nearly rolled out of the bed a few times. So unfortunately, as much as we had a lovely break away, we couldn't wait to get home to our bed, as our 4 nights in the hotel were restless and uncomfortable.
Also we were going to try the room service but the menu was unappealing and there was not much on offer however if you go down into the restaurant, the menu did look a lot better.
