After having much tighter quarters for the first four days of our vacation, the chance to spread out in more spacious accommodations was a delight! Although we didn't use it because our stay was short, the kitchenette would make this a good location for a longer stay...and help avoid the pricier costs of restaurants in this prime location. We appreciated being so close to Dam Square (a block or so) and the Centraal Station (10 minutes walk). Amsterdam is full of people pulling luggage back and forth to the station, so don't worry about that! But be prepared for the steep stairs to your accommodations. You'll be glad that you "packed light". Holger was very accommodating and we'd happily stay there again.
