It was a fine experience; with the need for taking the ferry to get to downtown Amsterdam made for a nice nautical beginning and end of the day. The hotel is pleasant, but very short of amenities

A unique Spot
A unique venue for a couple of nights! With easy connections to Centraal station. The rooms are quite simple, no frills, but worked for us as we were out for large parts of the day. Rooms didn't have air conditioning which was a shame but was manageable.
