    It was across from the Botanical Gardens, Artus, and Micropia. Close to lots of things, pretty close to the main train station. Also it was super clean and staff were helpful.

    The hotel is ideally located to reach many prime locations in Amsterdam by foot. The staff went the extra mile to help me with my needs and were very personable. The hotel is also an excellent value in an expensive city.
