We stayed here for 3 nights. It's location is decent as we didn't pay for a taxi once in Amsterdam, we got the bus to and from the airport and the bus/tram in to amsterdam everyday. As for the hotel it's cheap and cheerful really. The staff are helpful and pleasant and the rooms are tidy but a bit dated which really didn't bother us. We paid for breakfast which was basic but as we aren't really fussy, we just had grabbed something we liked from the buffet and got on with the day.
We bought a bus/tram ticket for our duration at reception which probably saved us a lot of money, it cost about 15euros and lasts a week. Just make sure you get the right bus/tram and get off at the right stop! If I can remember correctly the stop for the hotel is something like 'slotenmeer'.
