Advantages Good design and decor
Disadvantages Not enough storage
My boyfriend booked this hotel for our recent city break in Amsterdam. It is located within a few minutes’ walk from the airport terminal.
Back in the room, we started using the moodpad which shaped like a remote control for television. The moodpad controls all aspect of the room from lightings, blinds to the channels on the television. However, switches are also available for the main lights. The pad can take time to get used to but it’s also fun to use. You can use it to set light intensity and colour. However, what I really like about the room is the separation between the toilet and shower. This means whoever using the toilet will not disturb the one using the shower.
Since we arrived in the evening, we were starving after unpacking our stuff. Hence we went downstairs for the bar to grab something to eat. The canteen provides a selection of sushi, noodles, sandwiches etc. The portion is not huge but should be sufficient to fulfil any immediate hunger. On the packing of each set of meal are clear instructions for reheating the food using the microwave nearby. There are tables and stool where you can have your meal. The whole area is neat.
After the meal, we had a wonder round the lobby area. It is decorated with designer furniture and bookcases with books and magazines for guests. The other side is an internet access point with a few mac machines and a printer for customers to print documents. If you want more privacy and have a netbook or iphone, you can access internet via the wi-fi in all areas of the hotel. The whole area of the lobby gave me a very homely feel and it felt like I was inside a designer household.
The shower is very powerful and it only works if the doors to the cubicle are fully closed. There are two settings for the shower-the rainshower or shower head. I used the rain shower and it was very refreshing. It felt like standing under the summer rain.
