About 25 mins from the dam - clean(ish) room but could've been a lot cleaner. Decor and furniture in need of a revamp- very dated. No bar which was a bit of a let down. 2 single beds do not equate to a double. All in all no major issues but been to much better.

Staff were very helpful and super friendly. Best value for a 3 night escape/vacation trip. Breakfast was very tasty, double room was very clean, tidy, and had a beautiful front and side view. Don't forget to ask for discount cards you can use in shops in the city. Also ask the staff for Amsterdam nightlife card with which you can...
