This was my eleventh trip to Amsterdam, and I was initially a little reluctant to stay in a cheaper hotel due to my budget, however I'm glad we stayed at Hotel CC.
The room was very clean and cosy with the heating already turned on for our arrival. The bathroom was spotless, as was the bedding and sheets. As of January 2014 everything seemed relatively new.
The location is pretty much perfect. There are plenty of cafes and eateries just seconds walk from the entrance, so the hotel not having a breakfast option was actually a good thing in the end. As well as cafes the Hill Street Blues and Greenhouse Effect coffee shops are also within seconds walk, and are two of the best coffeeshops in 'Dam. There is also a launderette a few doors down, in case your are travelling light. The Red Light District is also just down the road and around the corner if that's your thing. If you are mainly interested in the museums you will have to be prepared to walk or take a tram to the south end of town.
I was also surprised to see a safe in the room. I had a lot of cash to bring home with me and I would have brought it had the safe been in the room description. You might want to phone the hotel to confirm that your booked room has a safe or not before you bring any valuables.
It can periodically get a little rowdy out on the street from say midnight to 2am, so you may want to try some ear plugs if you're a super-sensitive sleeper.
Overall we were more than satisfied with the accommodation, and can't wait to return next year. :)
