I stayed there with my sister as we went for a vacation there last November. The rooms were huge and had a lot of amenities. However the decor even though excellent for the architecture of the building was kind of gloomy and dark but I guess it was done so as to keep the original character of the building.The breakfast at the hotel is amazing and has a great variety. However the best thing is its location it is right on Dam square and of course that means in the centre of Amsterdam. It is so easy to get around all the main attractions and shopping streets. Centraal station is about 20 minutes walk but there are excellent tram services right infront of the hotel so it is not too tiring when arriving at Schiphol airport and taking the train to Centraal. I would say it is more for couples and bussiness people so not too many activities for children if you want to come as a family.
