This is a very beautiful hotel with excellent service and amenities. We checked in and were offered sparkling wine with hot chocolate for the kids. It is right around the corner from the Red Light District, but that wasn't a problem. Comfortable beds, great shower, excellent bathrobes. It could use a nightlight in the bathroom. At this price point, the minibar should just be included. The included breakfast was very nice. Wasn't able to get adjoining rooms or even rooms close to one another for our kids which was a bummer, but at least we were on the same floor.

We have stayed in many fine and historic hotels in many cities over the years, but this has become our favourite, primarily because of the efficient, thoughtful and kind service provided by the people working there. ||It feels wrong to single out individuals but Zsa Zsa Zanolie and Niels Essink both go far out of their way to make us feel welcome, and the whole front of house team are exceptional - really far better than in other hotels in which we have stayed. ||We very much appreciate and like the breakfast team with Lilian, Hester, Will, Florian and the whole team. Breakfast is such a difficult meal to get right in a big hotel, with no reservations and the time pressure - this team are brilliant. ||Mauricio and all the butler team could not be more helpful and are also very much appreciated by us. ||I would recommend that anyone thinking of spending any time in beautiful and historic Amsterdam to stay at this hotel, and to speak to the excellent Concierge team, who know the city better than anyone and will help you to make the most of your time. ||And finally, a word for the Housekeeping service. The standards of cleanliness at this hotel are truly exceptional, and the housekeeping service is an important part of what makes the hotel special.||And on top of all of this, the hotel itself is a beautiful historic building situated in the heart of Amsterdam. I heartily recommend it.||
