The hotel room was lovely and modern with plenty of standard features. Check in and out is handled by tablets in the lobby, near the front desk. Staff are helpful when needed, such as when keys don’t work to open the doors. The bar is a bit pricey but the quality is high and the staff are absolutely lovely. There is also a 24/7 snack store available for guests. Plenty of gorgeous views on the property and places to hang out with friends or alone. The location is a bit of a ways away from the old town, but from the ferry it’s a relatively short walk. Overall recommend this hotel.

It was better than I expected and I actually enjoyed the room and bed. Here’s my gripe, they are listed as a vip property for Expedia / hotels.com but the don’t actually provide the perks like upgrades that are advertised especially because you check yourself in there’s no opportunity to give you an upgrade and even when I asked they blew me off. The location is good, about 5 minutes bike ride from the ferry to Amsterdam central.
