Perfecht hotel when visiting the capital with friends. We booked 2 rooms (both for 7 persons). Beds were great, space was enormous and the location was great. COffee and tea is also available as well.

I came to Amsterdam for a long weekend and decided to check out this place. It has 2 train/tram stations located within 2 minutes from the hotel that take you straight into the city center.

Extraordinary space where you feel the current (and past) art pulsing through walls, floors, items. At the meeting room, we had a real coffee machine and real cookies and other goodies.

Funny to see how many low score this hotel, how many high score it. A group of architects got to play with this 1890s transit hotel designed as a sanitarium for migrants fleeing to Ellis Island.

It is well situated, 1 min walk from a tram stop and 10 mins from the Centraal Station.
