This hotel is a 5 minute walk from Central train station, 10 minutes from the main shopping area/Dam Square and around 20 minutes walk from the main museums,Anne Frank's house and the main areas for nightlife/restaurants. The location of this hotel was perfect for us as it is set in a quiet area and was easily accessible without being in the midst of the noise of Dam Square.
If you are looking for a hotel with character then this is your place. This is not an uber modern hilton-like hotel from the outside however the rooms are very modern with all the comforts you would expect from a 5 star hotel:nespresso machine,comfortable robes & slippers, branded toiletries and a free mini bar which was very well stocked and a lovely touch. The bar included waters,cokes,beers,wines,miniatures etc. The ceilings in the bedrooms were fabulously high with beautiful curtains which blocked out all the light. We faced on to the canal & the view of the city was beautiful.
I would highly recommend this hotel however I am giving this hotel a 4 as although we loved the decor, the rooms,the location and the view, we felt the staff were slightly lacking for a 5 star hotel. One member of staff remained on the phone while fetching our suitcases upon check out & didn't even acknowledge us or ask if we had enjoyed our stay. The fire alarm went off as we were checking out & the receptionist was extremely abrupt when we asked for a few extra minutes to gather our belongings after the drill was over - as a result of this we rushed to leave the hotel & left a number of items behind us. Isolated events but not expected from a 5 star establishment.
Try get a city view room on a high floor. Use the discount coupons available at the concierge desk and the map provided which is excellent.
