The modern design is appealing. It's in a great location if you're focusing on the museums in Amsterdam--could hardly be closer. And, unlike some, I didn't find the electronics particularly complicated.
However, there were gaps and inconsistencies in service which shouldn't be happening in a hotel of this price range. For example, it was nice to get a welcome gift of fruit, but most of the fruit was tired and decidedly unappealing. While the breakfast spread is pleasant, good luck getting one of the hot options supposedly included in the price--I never did, twice because I couldn't get anyone to come ask me, and once because it took so long I had to leave before it showed up (frankly, I wasn't sure that it ever would). And a doorman once chided me for coming in at the main entrance; apparently, I was supposed to intuit that a staffed entrance was closed.
Next time, I think I'll try the Sofitel.More
