It could not be better. The Rooms are so amazing and staff is so nice. We read some comments about sound prof and noise but in our case we feel the room pretty quiet, just the noise of the raining against the building. Breakfast is also pretty good, maybe I would like to have scrambled eggs and beicon. Coffee it’s simply delicious. Location is also perfect, close to the metro and in 10-15 min you get at central station. McDonald’s it’s in front of the hotel in case you need.

Let's start at the beginning: the Ruby hotel is a high-rise building located on the outskirts of Amsterdam, adjacent to a blighted urban area, overlooking a parking lot and a McDonald's, surrounded by noisy construction work. The hotel has virtually no front desk or stable front desk staff, but an automated check-in system that works horribly. Long check-in lines are created, and the occasionally present staff is neither trained nor prepared to professionally resolve problems. These are young boys and girls mostly from other countries who clearly have not received the training that would be required in a hotel with these prices. I reported to a staff member, when I finally found one, that I had booked a double room but was alone, and instead the girl in question entered the details of a second fictitious person into the system. This is clearly illegal, and as you will read below, it is part of the problems that, in general, this hotel has with customer safety, which is not adequately protected. As a result of this erroneous and fallacious check-in, I was charged 80.00 euros in breakfast costs for a non-existent person. But let us proceed: the room was extremely noisy because beyond the door was a huge refrigerator running day and night, producing vibration, noise and heat all around. This hotel adopts a green rhetoric but it is greenwashing a facility that hugely wastes energy and resources, employs underpaid staff, and creates revenue with imperfect automation and to the detriment of customer comfort. But that's not all: on the second night of my stay, the hotel played dance music at full volume until 00:30 AM, which could be distinctly heard all the way to my room. The next day I had an important meeting at 8:30 AM, but evidently this hotel is not intended for working people. I thought I had experienced the worst, but instead the next day the hotel held a party for its 10th anniversary. There is nothing wrong with that, but this party was organized to the detriment of the hotel guests staying there. The party lasted until 2:00 AM with very loud music; there was no surveillance at the entrance; drunk and staggering people wandered all over the hotel. By breakfast the next day, the hotel was dirty and sticky and smelled of alcohol. The breakfast counter was still cluttered with speakers and amplifiers, and it was even difficult to access the breakfast cutlery. Breakfast, at a cost of 20.00 euros per person per night, is totally inadequate at this price and by the standards of a four-star hotel. To give just one example, there are only hard-boiled eggs that are repeated from day to day and no other options are offered. The coffee is very bad. In essence, this is a hotel that purports to be cool, hipster, green, but is actually ugly, uncomfortable, dirty, unscrupulous in its use of electricity and food, run by unmotivated and untrained staff, and surrounded by hideous suburbia. It is a real neo-liberal hell run with total unscrupulousness. Horrendous.
