                    Beautiful historical hotel completely renovated with very innovative design inputs.

                    Hotel restaurant was good.

                    The hotel was not very clean looking. It's an older building with very modern designs, but it did not look like it was kept well.

                    One of the most interesting hosting concepts i had ever experienced after 24 years of traveling!

                    it would be very kind if there was a conditioned common room for smokers who want to drink coffee (i suggest near ''to drink'' bar)

                    I found the hotel immensely beautiful and comfortable. It was quiet and tranquil. The location was beautiful. A bit far from the centre but not too long, on a good day it was a beautiful stroll and not far from the zoo. Everything was quite stylish and beautiful. The staff was very nice and helpful.

                    I have to say the menu at the restaurant could be bigger, I was travelling with a person who's a picky eater and we ended up going someplace else for she didn't find anything she liked on the menu. The drain in our room was clogged, which was unclogged so that's all right, but it did leave quite a bit of stench in our room. I also have to say that the bathroom doesn't leave much of privacy. It was also rather annoying to have one big duvet instead of each person having her/his own duvet.

                    I expected more for the hotel for the price but seemingly we paid more than most others staying there. It was a huge hotel and I guess rather than trying to have art and other decoration the more economical way was to have huge drapes hung everywhere. The room was very basic and had a tretcherous set of stairs that took you up to the very comfortable bed. Staff were helpful and the location turned out ok because of the trams.

                    The price. I don't think it is worth what we paid - I'd probably look for a cheaper hotel for a couple of nights stay if we returned.

                    The hotel was extremely good value for for money. The rooms were way above my expectations. I would definitely stay there again.

                    The hotel was impressive - very nicely decorated and staff were friendly. We were upgraded to a fantastic suite which was one of the nicest rooms we have ever stayed in. The bathroom was enormous with a freestanding bath, separate shower and double wash basins.

                    The location is quite inconvenient, a tram ride or taxi from the city. This would not have been such a problem if the hotel had more bikes available for hire as Amsterdam is so well suited to cycling. Unfortunately the hotel bicycles were all already booked, and the nearest bike hire shop is more than a 15 minute walk away.

                    Although we were worried that we may have been too far from the city centre,the location was perfect. The reception desk gave us a map and detailed tram numbers and locations and ordered taxis whenever required. It only actually took 5-7 minutes to get into the centre by car.The hotel was fantastic as were the staff. Nothing was too much trouble and the room was spotlessly clean. If you are not very mobile, make sure you don't get a room with stairs. Although the ktchen was being renovated, the meals prepared were of top quality and reasonably priced .

                    The hotel is located just outside the center, but a tram stop is quite close by, which makes it easy to visit the city. Also the Hotel is in a quiet area and it's own bar makes it comfortable to have a drink after a day in the city. The rooms were nice, clean and of a good size. My colleagues paid more money for a much less quality hotel, just around the corner on the Amstel, so all in all very good value for money. I definately will stay here again next time I'm in Amsterdam.

                    There was no problems at all. In the reviews I read some complaints about noise from the next door club, but I guess that is a weekend only problem and I am sure that it depends very much on which side of the hotel you are staying. The internet connection was good and the coffee maker is what you expect from a 4* hotel.

                    2 floor in my number! Interesting Design of rest room.

                    Lovely room with v comfortable bed. Good restaurant and nice quiet location, although a little way out of town.

                    There was nowhere in the room to store clothes so we had to leave our clothes in the suitcase. Extras are v expensive (Internet, minibar, breakfast)

                    The design of the room - great! Nice outdoor area.

                    The reception - with all its black curtains - is a bit dark and drab. It needs a bit more colour

                    When i saw the hotel on bokking.com, it had only just been listed wihin my price range that day. In comparison to the others I had been looking at, it looked better than the rest. When I arrived I was amazed. The lobby had a grand entrance amd the staff member was extremely friendly and helpful. When I entered my room i was amazed. I am travelling on a budget and normally i could not afford a room like this. it was clean and modern and had all the comforts and facilities you could want. The hotel is only a 5 minute walk to the tram which takes you into the heart of Amsterdam. which is only about a 10 minute tram ride. Walking to the city for the budget concious only takes about 30 minutes. Would definitely stay here again if I could get at the same price.

                    only one small problem if you are a light sleeper (which I am not, so didnt really affect me), is that you can easily hear the footsteps of people walking past the room
