          • Family with children

            This was probably the worst hotel we have ever stayed in. They were undertaking renovations at the time, and although this was not mentioned to us, some disruption was understandable. However, the staff were completely unhelpful. For example, directing us to toilets that were obvioulsy not in use or perhaps we could try a pizza restaurant around the corner! The lifts were full of workmen, mattresses and TV's. Although I do not mind taking the stairs at all, they were filled with rolls of carpet, power tools and electrical cables and were very unsafe. I would not recommend anyone stay at a hotel like his.

            The locations is good. Rooms are spacious and clean.Staff are quite gentle and ready to help

            The only thing i did not like is the smoking smell in the room.Also the rooms are not sound proof, you can hear people talking in adjacent rooms.

            Location

            The fact that it was being renovated and did not know about it! No fridge in the room! Laundry trolleys left outside the room all day and night! Fire escape blocked by laundry trolley, very dangerous! Ceiling above room door missing panel! Paid £450 for a luxury room and had to deal with all the issues above! Not a happy customer!!

            This hotel is centrally located in Amsterdam and it's a reasonably good deal - the rooms are modern and clean.

            Facing a main thoroughfare, the room was quite noisy, especially in the morning. We had specifically requested a quiet room, so getting a noisy one on the 2nd floor was disappointing. We asked to be moved, however this was not possible. Also, the room (like the hotel in general) was quite dark.

            The room and bathroom were fantastic, very comfortable and well designed. Great coffee machine. Massive bed.

            The noise from the road was excessive even though the windows were double glazed. We would have preferred a room on the back of the hotel due to this.

            The location was perfect and the staff very agreeable. The set up of the family room was very convenient for a family of 4, and children enjoyed receiving "party bags" upon arrival.

            The breakfast area was a bit cramped, although food choice was wide enough.

            Nesspresso machine in the room - very nice!
