    Overview 9.70 /10

    Access to the hotel is through an inside, paved, chateau style courtyard where a florist has a shop. This large building full of charm and rich in history surrounds the courtyard. Doormen and a parking valets welcome clients in front of the hotel whatever the weather. A large hall with a warm, quiet atmosphere opens onto the inside garden. This building which might date back to 1400 is a former convent. Its was used for many purposes until 1808 when it became the Amsterdam City Hall until 1991. This hotel is a genuine museum and even houses a chapel where weddings are celebrated, the former boardroom of the city hall and its woodworks, art works offered by heads of states, etc. The hotel offers such an architectural, historical, and artistic interest that during 2007 heritage days, visits were organized and attracted thousands of visitors.
    And to end on a high note, the hotel has a pool and a sauna, ideal to relax after a long walking day.

    Food and drink 9.45 /10

    The Roux cafe, a trendy brewery, serves refined meals and offers a view on one of the most beautiful Amsterdam canals. From the breakfast buffet to the à la carte dinner, there is nothing to question.
    When waking up, options are multiple: pastries, all kinds of yogourts, juice and fruits, without forgetting eggs, ham, cheese, and salads.
    À la carte, top quality and original dishes. Taste the raw tuna with a Parmesan tile as a starter... delicious!
    And for snacks and aperitifs in a warm environment, the Lounge Bar, which can serve you in the garden just as the restaurant.
