I have wanted to stay here for a few months and got the opportunity. It is a great old building with amazingly modern features inside. I had a superb duplex room facing the Main Street and it was very comfortable indeed, very high tech yet exuded luxury too. The hotel can be a little confusing in its layout but the staff are extremely attentive and are always willing to help . The situation is great too, just around the corner from the Rijksmuseum and Van Gogh museum, and the Concertegebouw... A very calm and refined and upmarket part of town. I'd definately stay here again.

"Lots of character, spacious rooms, welcoming staff"
My friend and I stayed in this wonderful hotel in mid-September through a deal with Expedia, it had everything you could wish for in the room including bath products, bath robe and slippers, hair dryer, iron and ironing board, free minibar (restocked daily), free Nespresso machine, even an umbrella! Also, you get a free map on arrival which was better than the one we paid for at the tourist information office.
We were allowed to check in a few hours early which was good and the staff were very attentive and not at all snobby which you can sometimes get in posh hotels. We had requested a canal view room on a high floor but were given a harbour view room on a high floor which was still lovely as it had a nice view and we could hardly hear any noise from the road.
I have seen a couple of negative reviews about the décor of this hotel. I can understand that the art deco style may not be everyone’s cup of tea but personally I’d rather stay in a lovely old building with lots of character with unique features than an ultra-modern hotel with no character that could be found in any city. In fact, I spent a little bit of time during the trip just wandering around the hotel looking around each floor. Not sure why a couple of people said the décor was dated as the building only opened as a hotel in 2007 so all the fittings and furnishings are modern.
Overall, I would definitely stay in this hotel again and recommend it to others, it was a lovely experience.
