We arrived on a bitterly cold but Sunny February Day for my wife's birthday trip to Amsterdam, having carefully selected this hotel from a number of review sites. We are careful not to rely on one site due to the inconsistency of reviewers and their foibles.
Rest assured, this hotel will not dissapoint once you have decided on the price and booking. Everything else is taken care of when you arrive from the charming welcome drinks and biscuits to the wonderful anytime service of teas coffees biscuits and wine and soft drinks all included in the tariff. Breakfast was beautifully done, a full continental with all the trimmings you need without the pressure of larger hotel offerings.
The location is perfect and we were able to walk to all visitor areas, restaurants, museums and shopping. The only taxi/car usage was to the airport and do allow the hotel to arrange a car as we found this no more expensive than the taxi we took from the airport.
Friends met us for pre dinner drinks and the option of three very comfortable public rooms to welcome them in to a roaring fire on a cold day was wonderful, reminding us of the very pleasant boutique hotel we use in London in the same way.
Our junior suite Tolkien (4) was very spacious and aside from the unusual bathroom door arrangement was excellent for our purposes and on the quieter side of the Hotel. That said I would not expect there to be an issue on the canal side certainly not in the low season.
We will certainly be back again perhaps in warmer weather. We recommend the Hermitage Museum, and do try the Lucius Fish Restaurant. The Hotel also has some excellent recommendations which we took up. This Hotel makes a visit to Amsterdam even more enjoyable. Turn up and relax.
