My husband and I had high expectations for this hotel but were deeply disappointed! Upon arrival we were informed that our room wasn't ready yet and that we were welcome to sit and wait, for how long, we weren't informed! After what seemed like a lifetime we were told our room was now ready. The room was minuscule to say the least and it was apparent that the cleaning had been a rushed job. The next morning we went down for breakfast and it was very chaotic. It seemed that the restaurant/breakfast area was too small for the amount of guests the hotel had. There were not enough members of staff working to help everyone and ensure a pleasant dining experience. The only exception being the lovely Mathew who seemed to take on the entire work load by himself (while still finding time to make jokes with us and the tables beside us) while other members of staff stood chatting behind the bar! The food was bland to say the least and the bacon was so overcooked it was like eating glass. However compared to a few other hotels we have stayed at the choice of food wasn't bad. The hotel was very noisy in the evening both outside and in with constant footsteps passing by the door. Our trip to Amsterdam was lovely and it is a beautiful city. We will recommend that our friends look elsewhere for accommodation if visiting Amsterdam.
