    Staff were friendly courteous and extremely helpful from the minute we arrived at the hotel. Nothing seemed like too much trouble - taxis, dinner bookings, excursions or just good advice. The 'living area' works very well and was a place where you could feel really relaxed with a complimentary tipple or two! - here we met several couples from different parts of the world and struck up interesting conversations with them.The hotel is also in an extremely good position, which meant we could drop in and out if we wanted during the day. Highly recommended by all 4 of us that went.

    An excellent location with very friendly staff and comfortable accomodation. The free bar and snacks in the lounge area made it a very sociable hotel too.

    Very good

    Central location within the city center. Hotel staff very friendly and efficient. Good breakfast. Good idea to have free access to coffee machine, drinks and snacks. However, for alcoholic beverages, we would have liked to have the option of paying for premium/better quality drinks.

    The room was very small and the "canal view" is of no real interest. No restaurant in the hotel so the choice for room service menu is very poor.

    Beautiful building, and art deco feel. Bedrooms spacious and fully equipped including iron and board, full sized hairdryer. Breakfast was a comprehensive spread, with pleasant staff. The concept of inclusive snacks and beverages was brilliant. We was able to utilise this often. High standard of housekeeping was very evident, and the choice of pillows added to the comfort level. Location of this majestic establishment was a great base in the beautiful city of Amsterdam.

    Herbal tea bags in room as not everyone is a coffee drinker. Different room snacks. But these are minor suggestions.

    Staff were fantastic. The food/drink concept is very welcome and helpful in such an expensive city. Good showers.

    I would agree with some comments that the rooms are a bit plain. If the rooms had the detail and decor of the reception areas it would be excellent.

    All drinks in the room and lounge are complimentary

    Though still ok, the rooms and bathrooms are a little bit small. The free video channels are not available "at wish"; you are depending from the times which are set by the hotel

    Very pleasant helpful staff. Rooms were very nice. Nice extras such as the free beverages, mini-bar, cheese/sausage and crackers in the late afternoon/early evening. Location was terrific, and easy to get to from the central train station on a tram. Close to the flower market.

    Friendly atmosphere, staff were interested tho not pushy. Breakfast both in terms of choice and quality was very good. The purpose of my visit was to go to a concert. Had it not been for the interest shown by a member of staff in my visit, I would have gone to the venue only to find it cancelled....much appreciated. An obvious unique selling point was the free mini bar (unheard of in my experience) and free drinks throughout the stay....nice to see your guests not abusing this service!!

    Fabulous

    The location is excellent, the staff friendly and attentive and the concept of letting guests consume as much as they like from the room and lobby bars without extra charge is great, makes it feel like home when you can raid the fridge anytime you want.
