“A landmark hotel”

The hotel is an Art Nouveau/Art Deco landmark as seen from the outside and of course the interior of its majestic Café Americain is an architectural landmark by itself. But the lobby area and our room were appointed in a nondescript contemporary style - you could be in any chain hotel anywhere in the world. Our room 018, located on the "entresol" right above the hotel entrance was very large but with a disproportionally low ceiling and had no period features except for slightly arched windows and a marble column between them (ah yes - and squeaky floor:). The room had a canal view but was a little bit noisy even with the windows closed and deafeningly noisy with windows even slightly open. Well it's Amsterdam... The location is not bad both for the museums and for the more central part of the city. The breakfast was very good.

Dear Guest, Thank you for your stay and review posting. Indeed the city centre can be noisy. We have also rooms available to a quieter inner court yard should you prefer this for a future stay. With best regards,

“Classy hotel in a great location.”

Excellent hotel in a great location. We were upgraded to a deluxe room which had a balcony looking over the canal. Lovely big room although the bathroom was on the small side. We ate at Cafe American one evening and the food was excellent. From the hotel we walked to all the museums and attractions, it was so easy. Would thoroughly recommend this hotel.
