Overall great hotel with friendly and welcoming staff. Would recommend. Some finer details need tweaking - managing expectations around out of service facilities (pool closed and arranged to visit a nearby hotel instead - but no warning and booked especially with our baby), concierge ignored my wife when asking for help and seemingly enjoyed moving boxes more, no walk ins at in-restaurant hotels but thankfully the butler managed to squeeze us in.

Absolutely coming back! Best hotel experience!
What an amazing hotel! I'm definitely going back here whenever I'm travelling to Amsterdam again. Not only was the location superb, but the staff and their hospitality and service level was outstanding. The hotel itself is beautiful and in good shape. When I arrived they immediately upgraded me to a suite, and I am so grateful. Everything was so beatiful!
