Stayed for a long weekend (concert at Ziggo Dome) with my lovely wife.
Arrived at around 09.00 having been travelling since 4.00am, hoping for an early check-in but unfortunately not available. Told that guaranteed check-in would be 3.00pm. No problem. Went for a walk and got back for just after 1.00pm, needing a snooze..... Still no room.
Waited in the lounge and at 2.58 we got our room! This was the only disappointment.
Difficult to believe that the room only became available at this time in such a big hotel.
Breakfasts really, really expensive. They looked good but much, much better value in town (Broodje Bert, Singel). Anyway, gripes over.
Room was good, very clean with great views. Quiet aircon, smart bathroom, comfy bed.
Hotel operates a shuttle every 30 minutes to Centraal station. Have to book as it gets popular. There's a tram stop over the road - worth considering a GVB OV Kart - 7E for 24h travel on trams / Metro and buses.
Staff - particularly the two concierge chaps (Christopher and ?) - are so friendly and helpful - a real credit to the business. Great english speakers too.
Final gripe - nearly forgot:
Checking in - one check-in desk with one person and quite a queue of guests. A barriered section was allocated to departing guests with 3 staff...... with nobody waiting to check out!
Asked if we could check-in there but not allowed. Why? No-one waiting to check-out. This was quite infuriating.
Summary - very good but could so easily be an awful lot better.
