First, the positives: Good location, just 5 minutes walk to Amsterdam Central Station and the trams. Close to the red-light district, the backpackers area and about 15 minutes walk to the main medevial attractions and glitzy departmental stores in the city. Just walk a bit further and you'll hit the shopping streets. Breakfast in the Irish pub next door was delicious and plentiful.
Now, for the negatives: Room felt very cabin-like, with only one small frosted window (I hear some rooms have no windows). Room floors were greasy for some reason and while bathroom wasn't dirty, it wasn't sparkling either. Reception area and lobby could do with some tidying up, the carpets always looked filthy and there was a certain mess to the place. Only 1 tiny and slow elevator serving about 5 floors.
