Stayed 2 nights as a last minute arrangement by Tauck River Cruises due to the rising water levels on the Rhine. I believe there were around 50 of us that had to be put up at this hotel and therefore we all were given different categories of rooms. Ours was room 520 which was a good size and had a view of a canal partially obscured by the roof of the floor below us. It was located behind the elevator which concerned us but we heard absolutely nothing.
The room had plenty of closet space with only 3 hangers...I'm sure we could have asked for more. Beautiful marble bathroom with separate shower and tub, makeup mirror, in floor heating, and high quality toiletries. The room had large, comfortable bed with beautiful quality linens and supplied a robe and slippers for two. There was a tv, Bose docking station for my iPod with a speaker system which included the bathroom, a writing desk with an iPad charged up and ready for use with the free WiFi.
The hotel is about six blocks from the Red Light District and about a 15 minute walk from the Rijksmuseum and the Van Gough museum.
The only blip was the service in the restaurant which was friendly but very disorganized. In fairness to them, almost our entire group did show up within half an hour but we were one of the first to be seated and one of the last to be fed and only after I went and questioned the waitress. When they did bring my meal the meat was almost raw on the inside. I'm sure they would have gladly fixed it had I pointed it out but no one ever came to ask so I ate what I could.
Cannot comment on the value because we didn't pay for the room but the card we filled out for registration said 370 Euros.
