Walked in off street having messed up a booking at another hotel and was relieved when we were told they had two rooms - last two rooms in hotel.... My teenagers' twin room was comfortable clean and had a great view over Damrak street (305). Essential to my teenagers was that the hotel had free wi-fi.
We on the other-hand were allocated room108...avoid at all costs. It was extremely small, dark and looked out onto a brick wall - ie no view. You could also hear the noise from downstairs - dread to think what would have been like in the evening. Its only redeeming feature was that it was spotlessly clean.
I returned to reception and was up-graded to another room (502)....Was given a reduced rate. This was much better although had to be reached by a narrow staircase as the lift did not go up to it. Again room was clean and well equipped although the immediate view was of a flat roof with the air conditioning system with roof tops in distance. Disappointing.
All the staff we dealt with in the hotel were friendly and helpful. We were able to book tickets for attractions from reception, the Van Gogh exhibition being almost immediately opposite the hotel. Hotel was ideally located to soak in the atmosphere of Amsterdam.
We made the mistake of driving into central Amsterdam and succeeded in missing the turning into the public car-park which is almost opposite the hotel which resulted driving around the block which took nearly 1/2 hour - we were reliant on a sat-nav. Would avoid driving in central Amsterdam due to number of bicycles and pedestrians.
