I was booked into this hotel as one of a party of eleven for my son's 'stag' weekend in Amsterdam. Given our agenda for the weekend, we admittedly just needed somewhere to sleep for 2 nights for a fun weekend (with lots of drink), I cannot be too critical, as you get what you pay for, so all things considered, this place was ok'ish.
As previously commented, the location is great - only 5 minutes walk from Amsterdam station and the 'red light' district, in a busy part of the city, down a side street by a canal. Loads of bars, restaurants and shops (and cyclists) all around, made this a great location for our purpose, maybe not for those that would like a quieter base.
The hotel is a bit 'tired', the rooms fairly basic and in need of some decoration, but I could not fault the staff friendliness and room cleaning. Fortunately for me, I had a single room with a window, whereas some of our party had rooms with no windows which they said felt more like a cell! However, the rooms seem to be on 3 floors, all had good bathroom/shower facilities and TV with Wi-Fi access, but no tea/coffee making facilities. There is a reception area on the ground floor with a small seating area, but unusually, no real lounge/bar area - that is provided next door in 'Molly Malone's' Irish pub, where breakfast is served until 10.00 am, then lunch & evening meals available with a large SKY screen TV showing continuous sport, or providing live music some evenings.
My description may help or hinder the reader, dependant on why you are visiting Amsterdam. Given the purpose of my visit, it was ideal, but if you want peace & quiet, luxury and expect a higher standard, you are not paying for that here.
