"Escape from Duties"

Our Escape from Duties was our gift to ourselves after a very busy Christmas period, a chance to unwind and connect again in the wonderful laid back elegance that is Amsterdam. We took the tram from central Station to Fredricks Plein and the hotel was a few minutes walk away. We were welcomed and upgraded to a lovely room, 2nd floor to the front of the hotel. As expected tall narrow staircases, 38 steps to our room. There was no traffic noise issue despite being on the street side of the hotel. The staff were very polite, discreet and professional. The breakfast was fresh and offered excellent choices. Good coffee too.

We enjoyed the location of the hotel as it gave us an opportunity to be near busier area, Rembrandt Plein, but gave an insight to Amsterdam city living. The streets around the hotel on the way to the centre were beautiful, quiet and so typical of Amsterdam. We loved it.

We would book to stay again as the overall quality was very good value and we found very little to fault. Perhaps a small bedside locker/stand with a drawer would have been good and as we are used to a double bed at home, the twin bed arrangement felt slightly less romantic however the Hastens beds were so comfortable and warm we really had no complaint.

Good tram links and a taxi rank 2 minutes walk away. It's a lovely hotel in a fabulous city full of romance. Treat yourself! Our escape was a great way to begin 2016
