The hotel is in a great location, 10 minutes walk from the central station. Always 10 minutes walk to reach Dam square. It overlooks a small square with 5 restaurants also with outdoor tables. The structure is not brand new but well maintained. I read bad reviews due to old rooms but, evidently, we were lucky because we stayed in the newly renovated wing with brand new rooms, tastefully furnished and absolutely perfect, from mattresses to toiletries, with large bathroom and large shower cubicle. Hotel in the center but away from the chaos of the high traffic area. Very close to the central station to go to and from the schiphol airport. 2 steps from piazza dam. Metro and tram within a few meters. Impeccable cleanliness, polite and friendly staff. Large room with King bed, comfortable and carpeted mattress.
