Clean and bright room
Booked a single room via booking.com (my nightsaver) costs EUR55 with breakfast. The location of hotel is not actually right in the central part. About 7 tram stop from the Amsterdam central train station via tram no. 16 or 24, tram station called Ruysdaelstraat. Although it is walking distance (approx. 10 min.) to museumplein for the Van Gogh museum and other museum in the area as well as the huge Vondelpark.
Situated in a quiet neighborhood, the hotel itself looks like an apartment, you have to press the buzzer to be let in. Electronic keycard lets you in the main door and your room. Peach or pink coloured room, enough space to move around, double-bed, tv on study table, electric fan, safety deposit box ( wonder if it work), coffee making facility - minus the coffee or tea though, clean toilet, curtain separated shower stand.
The large windows opens up to a huge tree and the pleasant street below and a crawling plant, making the room airy and sunlit.
Just as most Amsterdam hotel, the stairs are steep so hold on to the railings, and my room is on the 3rd floor so a bit of struggle.
The breakfast room is the reception area too and breakfast is quite ok with variety.
Staff are good too, asian-looking fellows.
Price/value ratio...I would recommended this hotel, plus I got my coat back when I forgot it inside the cabinet and went back for it when I was already at the train station.
Unique Quality: Good breakfast, professional staff, clean room, large windows.
Directions: Take the tram no. 16 or 24 and get off at Ruysdaelstraat stop, walk further to the tram track and cross the street turn right and the first street to your left the second building with a sign of Hotel Washington.
