Great Breakfast. Near Light Rail, Restaurants/Bars
Posted 19-Dec-2016 on Hotels
Hotel was 2 blocks from Leidseplein. Bars/restaurants in the area easily walkable. Leidseplein is also a crossroads for light rail system, so it's easy to get anywhere in the city from that location. You can walk a few blocks to shopping. We purchased a triple room. The triple room at hotels.com actually shows a quad room (nice), even though it is labeled as a triple on the site. The front desk guy stated, 'Your picture tells me nothing, we just have good marketing.' We were told there are mostly triple rooms in their basement, which we were first assigned. But the ceilings were low, and the room was much smaller/darker than pictured, so I asked if there was another room available that wasn't in the basement. There was a quad available, so we were lucky enough to move to that room. The basement would have been much quieter than our 2nd floor room, but the move was worth it because there was daylight showing through, & it was more spacious. We were facing the street, so there was a lot of traffic noise, but ear plugs solved that problem. We also had a bonus little balcony, so we were able to keep our sodas and cheese cold out there (Dec). The breakfast was a big highlight of the hotel. It was a great value (included in room rate), serving staff was friendly, space was tidy, lots of food and beverage choices! Awesome start to our day! Wifi reliable. One front desk staffer wasn't friendly at all, but others all pleasant. Long black hairs in our shower each day. Eww.
