We loved The Manor! Beautiful building and even more stunning was the decor. Clean, spacious suite with an equally clean bathroom. A lovely space to come back to relax in after a day seeing the city. Although it was a little further out than we might like to have stayed, the Amsterdam Muiderpoort train station is a few minutes walk and we hopped on the train to Amsterdam Centraal every morning to go into the centre and back for only a few euros each. The bed was HUGE and so comfortable! Staff were nice and check-in and out was quick and easy. And best of all on arrival we were upgraded to a bigger suite for no extra charge due to being picked as “guest of the day”. Cannot fault one thing about it this hotel.
The hotel had a wow factor as soon as you pull up. The young lady on the desk was very nice & informative. The hotel is just outside the city but a tram stops outside, number 19 2 stops change to 14 and it takes you directly into the city. A matter of 15 minutes away. Get a tram ticket for €8 for 24 hours. Our room was lovely clean & comfortable, a massive big bed & crisp white sheets. Walk in shower. Kettle & coffee machine in the room & a good hairdryer, tv Breakfast was continental & you can also order food from the menu. Coffee tea & juice to help yourself. All very nice. Our waitress was lovely. We were in room 212 the window didn’t seem to be fitted and when it was windy it whistled, which was annoying during the night. This was our only negative.
Not a good experience
To start with: the hotel is not close to city center, although you can take 2 trams almost in front of the hotel. It’s a long walk if you’re planning to explore the city by foot but doable (we did it every day). The staff is not that friendly, but provided us all the information we asked. The room is small, filled with carpets and paper wall, huge curtains, and I had an allergic reactions due to the amount of dusty inside the room. I couldn’t sleep well during the night, started to cough and sneeze. The bathroom has a good size but there was no heating inside, and it was January, for Christ sake. It was cold and rainy. I also missed the emergency security cord inside the bathtub. The shower was terrible. The water’s temperature fluctuated all the time - hot, cold, warm, and the pressure was very low. The bathrooms’s door is made of translucent but opaque glass and during the night if someone went to the bathroom, the light disturbs. The breakfast was very good - one of the best things about this hotel: Benedict eggs and croissant. Not a great variety of fruits, coffee machine (the cappuccino or espresso made to order was not included). The restaurant inside the hotel serves a good pasta and cold beer.
