If you like to walk out in the evening and soak up the atmosphere this one is not for you! On the plus side the staff are great, there is free wifi and the hotel areas and rooms are very nice. Rooms have coffee and tea making things and a good free continental breakfast is included. There are free bikes if you fancy a trip out and the countryside is not far away. The hotel is close to a tram stop but it is a good 35 minutes into the main station of Amsterdam, the area around the hotel is very quiet with only a couple of restaurants. Try La Brochette (French) or Bellini (Italian). Other than that there is not a lot and for this reason you may want to stay closer to the centre. The hotel staff are very happy for you to buy some food at the local Jumbo supermarket which is very close by and they will provide plates etc for you to eat in the breakfast area. There is parking close by at about 9 euro for 24 hours which is cheap by Amsterdam standards. The downside for us was the bed......it seemed cheap and was so uncomfortable. Also the pillows left a lot to be desired, just too fat and overstuffed even the so called soft ones.I realise this has not been mentioned on TA before, perhaps I am picky having previously stayed at an Ibis where the bed was just fab. A decent nights sleep is a priority! Also there was nowhere to put clothes away, a few hangars in the room with a small hanging space but no drawers. I just don't like living out of a suitcase which is what was needed here.
