When choosing our hotel we were pulled between price, location and comfort. We decided on the Notting Hill - a little more than we had initially meant to spend but felt it was the best hotel we could get this close to the action A’dam has to offer - there were cheaper closer options but they didn't look anywhere as nice.
We are so glad we paid the extra - the hotel was gorgeous, beautifully decorated, well laid out, very helpful staff, good amenities - proper coffee machine in our room, the bathroom was lush - the best shower experience we ever had! The only hotel bed my husband has not complained about - he slept all night! We had booked a basement room as this was the best deal - so we were very pleasantly surprised we had 2 large windows! It was my birthday we were celebrating and the hotel had decorated our room with ballons and left chocolates on the bed with birthday wishes - its touches like this that say a lot about hotel to my mind.
The downside to this room - towels were small and you wouldn't want to stay here with anyone that you were not intimate with! The door to bathroom was glass (frosted) but had a gap around it and there were shutters between the toilet and bedroom! Our tactic - put the TV on and turn the volume up!
The location of the hotel was great. Tram 4 was outside front door of hotel and 7, 10 and 25 were round the corner. It was a 30 minute walk back to central station and 10 minute to museum quarter if you wanted to walk.
We didn't try the hotel restaurant but we did check out the bar and would highly recommend it for a drink before and or after dinner.
If you are like us – umming and ahhing about were to book, ake the plunge and book the Notting Hill – we would definitely come back here!
