There's no doubt this is the place to stay for the view over the harbour, and if you are planning to get up for the Fishmarkt on Sunday morning. You need to know however that this is not a very cosy or friendly place to stay because it is on two or three sites in a complex, and you quickly get fed up with the slog up a steep flight of steps from the metro station. If you are put in the Tower part of the hotel, be prepared to compete with the public for the lift up to your room at happy hour (they are all going to the Cocktail bar on the 11th bar, and the noise from the lift continues until the early hours), plus there's the noise from the U-bahn below (but they supply ear-plugs so that's ok!). The breakfast is a ridiculous 18 euros, so don't pay it, and go to a local cafe where you can eat your full for less than 5.
This hotel felt like a train station. The staff were smiley, but honestly I wouldn't go back.
