Great location! Walkable to many dining/shopping options. Easy to connect to trains/bus. The street is closed in front of the hotel which adds some nice outdoor dining, but the noise level at night increases with all the activity on the street.

I really liked the accommodating staff. I also enjoyed how the hotel is connected to Beatrix, restaurant and bar. The views from the rooms are amazing too, and the room itself is very clean.
