Before I tell you anything about this hotel here is my top tip for Amsterdam wherever you stay - you can book tickets on-line in advance for Anne Frank's House and Van Gogh, this means you walk past all the people in the queues and go straight in!!
This hotel is truly luxurious with the corresponding price tag - we hoever got this hotel on Lastminute.com as the 'mystery hotel' so were delighted. More so as we were upgraded to a suite as it was my birthday. The room was large and immaculate. The bathroom boasted his and hers sinks, seperate walk in shower, bath and a toilet the like of which I had never seen before - you could wash after using it and there was even a drying function!! The hotel has free wifi and there is an Executive Lounge with a computer and printer which guests (I guess Executive ones!) can use. The Executive Lounge has complimentary tea, coffee, beer, wine and soft drinks. The bar on the 23rd floor has wonderful views (as does the Exec Lounge which is on the 22nd), prices are as you would expect for drinks in this class of hotel (5 euros for a beer etc). The restaurants in the hotel are very expensive - one with 1 *, another with 2*. we ddi not eat in them as I could not justify the prices. The breakfast was excellent and included in our deal. We walked everywhere from the hotel but understand that taxis are reasonable (taxi from airport to hotel was 40 euros though). There is a canal just outside the hotel and a boat hire facility. There are restaurants 2 minutes away - we ate in the Thai restaurant which was very good. There are donkeys, chickens etc in an area adajacent to the hotel - we were happy with the noises in the morning but it is a little unusual for a city centre hotel. If you had the windows shut you probably would not hear them but we prefer the windows open at night. The spa was difficult to reach as there was some refurbishment work (probably why we got the deal) going on. The pool and sauna areas were good and there was a gym if you have not had enough exercise walking around Amsterdam.
