We were travelling to London for a family vacation (3 kids/2 adults) and didn't want to spend all of our money on a hotel that we were only planning to sleep at. The Amsterdam worked out fine. They accomodated our request (requested ahead of time) for us all to stay in one suite. We were on the top floor-lots of climbing as the elevator is a bit small! We had a 2 bedroom suite, with a kitchenette and a nice size sitting room w/ a blow-up twin mattress, tv and 2 small sofas and a small, yet functional bathroom. The hot water was a bit of a challenge, you never wanted to be shower taker #4 or 5, but that can be worked around w/ some taking showers a night, some in the morning.
Breakfast in the morning was good, although sometimes crowded. Not like in the states with lots of choices, but enough- cereals, yogurts, toast, juice, coffee sometimes some cut up meat and cheese. You can't beat the area for convience as Earls Court tube is a 2 min walk away and the #74 and C1 buses stop almost in front of Trebovir Rd. 2 small supermarkets nearby and a big Tesco farther down the road made getting extra food for our kitchenette easy. Our room (& the whole hotel for that matter) was clean and neat. We didn't have a lot of interaction with the staff, but were greated warmly upon our arrival and when we did have a question they were very helpful. Earls Court is a bit noisy during the day and at night, but we were not terribly bothered by the noise at night.
If you are looking or are used to staying in the big US style Marriotts or Hyatts, this might not be the place for you. We have stayed in those as well and our kids were a bit taken back, but this hotel worked out perfect for us. I would stay here again- no second thoughts.
