This hotel is truly deserving of its 5-star rating. The service is excellent, the staff takes courteousness to the next level, and the hotel itself lives up to the pictures and the hype.
We got a corner room on the 12th floor so we had two really nice views - one of the canals and the other of buildings and a steeple. The room itself was really nice, the bed was very comfortable, and all the things needed to make a stay pleasant were provided. There's even a pillow menu if you need pillows other than the standard issue ones. The bathroom is spacious, what with a tub and a separate shower. Water pressure is great, btw.
As for house-keeping services, the room was kept spic and span. The staff even lined up our personal toiletries in the bathroom since we were in a rush one morning and items may have been in disarray. They have turn-down service as well, complete with robes and bedroom slippers. We tried room service too and the menu variety was more than adequate.
Location-wise, the hotel is really close to the Cornelis Troostplein tram stop, so even if it's not located in the actual city-center, it's very convenient to get to any of the tourist areas.
To get to the airport, we bought a taxi voucher at the concierge for 35 euros. A taxi from the hotel to AMS Schipol normally costs 35-40 euros anyway but the voucher ensures you don't pay more than 35.
If I ever go back to Amsterdam, I would definitely stay at this hotel again. Highly recommended.
