Not great. The darkness of the rooms might cynically be suspected of being an attempt to hide the less than perfect surroundings. very loud at night too. I could not recommend this place though the staff did their best to try and help.

of traditional local architecture – not to mention
Amsterdam’s own Chinatown, Europe’s largest Buddhist
temple and more local treasures. Sure, there are some
