Good stay in Amsterdam

It was a good stay at a preferred location for work related reasons; easy access from the centraal train station with Tram 14 (+/- 12 minutes) The overall experience is good (not very good) this is why it is rated as average. The room was very small (not sure how it compares to local standards) but all the necessary items were present. Lots of noise from the street in the morning and check out was poor quality service. Breakfast was excellent.

Clean, comfortable, well connected by tram line, not so expensive. The atmosphere is friendly, not formal, and it's a good place to stay for a job trip. The restaurant downstairs is cool, and the food is good. My experience was definetely good.. Will come back for sure.
