A new arrival on the Dutch accommodation scene that shouts its green credibility throughout, with living plant walls, eco-roofs, and green energy. It's run by a young, handsome, and very cool staff who go the whole hog to help and make recommendations on where to eat and what to see. They let their collective hair down at the weekends when each night is party night, with music and dancing in the bar. Bedrooms are compact and wittily adorned with pithy slogans on energy conservation, the breakfast bar an organic delight. Tram Line 1 stops right outside the hotel and is in the city center in under 5 minutes. The sister hotel is near Museumplein and ideally placed for visiting the Rijksmuseum and Van Gogh Museum.
