This is a stunning 5 Star hotel that I would readily recommend to anyone visiting Amsterdam. I have stayed many times but each time it gets better. I stayed last weekend and I have to say that the service, ambience and overall beauty of this remarkable place really blew me away.
The rooms and suites are second to none, with free Wi-Fi and state of the art bathrooms. Our suite overlooked the River Amstel from a lovely terraced balcony and having breakfast out there as Amsterdam came alive in the morning, was a truly memorable experience. To add to the relaxation factor, the hotel boasts a swimming pool and spa also. I should really give the restaurants a review of their very own, but I am more than happy to do it here. Het Terras is my personal favourite, set right on the River Amstel, with fabulous views of Amsterdam's busy and vibrant boat culture, is an ideal way to enjoy the excellent food and watch the world go by. The service is naturally 5 Star, as one would expect, and in all the years I have been coming to Amsterdam, I can honestly say that it is by far my best dining experience to date.
Also, try Freddie's Bar, which is a beautiful, "olde worlde" type of cocktail bar that is the perfect place to unwind and have a couple of drinks before dinner. It also has a humidor right next door for those who enjoy a cigarette or perhaps a fine cigar with their "Manhattan" or "Tom Collins." I know of no other establishment in Amsterdam that offers this kind of luxury. The bar staff are attentive, fast and very professional, as you'd expect of a hotel of this calibre.
I have to say a big thanks to all the staff, who gave us an extremely enjoyable experience during our stay, and we can't wait to return soon.
