The hotel is beautifully positioned at the corner of a canal with great views of passing river craft. The interior is a bit of a puzzle with gestures to grandeur in the form of very large chandeliers and over scaled reproductions of famous Dutch paintings clumsily obscured behind the chandeliers,set against nasty pink walls. The rooms have more controls for temperature and lighting than can be found in a cockpit. Once you work these out there are benefits like lights that guide you to the loo should you be geographically challenged in a 4 meter square room. However I found it all rather over designed and needlessly complicated. The linen is superb however and the breakfasts were freshly prepared. The bar is well stocked and if you like a gin martini the bar has a good range of gins and the barman is skilled.
But on balance I would look for something with less strained decor effects on my next visit to Amsterdam.More
