I Managed to book this hotel on Hotwire for £68 per night. Its located just a 10 minute walk from the nearest tram station (which is the best way to get around) and a 15/20min walk from the famous RijkMuseum, Van Gough Museum and the Bols Experience. The hotel offered full buffet cooked and continental breakfast for €12.99pppn. We bought this and worked out that we could probably skip lunch having a large breakfast. Very nice to have breakfast on the canal balcony. The breakfast service was very busy so recommend an early start for that. The rooms were really clean and tidy and well equipt with a good size bathroom. Everything you'd expect from a £68/£70 a night room. If your prepared to walk a little and/or tram through your stay then you won't be disappointed. It's €7.50 each for a 24hour tram ticket. I'd recommend downloading the POCKET AMSTERDAM app - this tells you where all the routes travel and is a map also. It's a 20 minute walk or 5 min tram ride into the main town or Dam Area. The reception staff were very quick and professional and a great help to get us started on our trip and organised a taxi for us to leave.
NOTE - I didn't know this hotel has a Shuttle bus Taxi service from Schipol Airport which is free and it's €7 each for a hotel to Airport shuttle and book all of this in advance.
