Jolly Hotel Carlton is located in the center of Amsterdam right on the flower market. It has every comfort a hotel of its class should offer, plus a cafe and a luxury restaurant offering italian cuisine.
An important thing for me, it has 2 spacious elevators...
Rooms are comfortable, more spacious than the average in Amsterdam with a king size bed, a big tv, a desk with wireless and wired internet, a minibar and a spacious bathroom.
The minibar is a bit pricey, and the internet, offered by Swisscom, goes at 24Euros per 24 hours. So any extra is actually pricey. For the internet you could also use the computer available in the Hall, it costs a bit less, but if you're without a laptop and need the internet I would recommend going to some internet cafe.
The room I had was a superior double room, it looked on the busy vizelstraat, but it was totally quiet, no noise could come in unless you opened the window.
I was here in August so aircondition is a must and well, for my taste it was barely functioning and tuning the controls didn't change anything... it was not that bad anyway.
Even the restaurant is pricey, but i think you should dine there at least once.
The front desk personnel was friendly and helpful, apart from a few ppl (particularly in the night) who were just corteus.
Anyway there were really helpful in helping me recover lost baggage and reserve for special tours.

In the end I recommend this hotel if you have some money to spend and you won't be disappointed. Also if you look at websites such as bookings.nl you could get a special price like i did.

Unique Qualities: Great location, good views, very comfotable, close to shopping avenues and lots of restaurants and coffee shops.
