We spent a long weekend in Amsterdam and decided to stay here. It's really easy to get to the hotel - either via a cab or from the Central Station in Amsterdam. Check-in experience was seamless, and the concierge was extremely helpful. They have a great bar with a lovely cocktails menu too.
This hotel is actually a collection of houses that have been remodelled to fit together. Which means that there are countless little staircases and passages you have to navigate to get around the hotel. They do provide a map, but be prepared to be a little patient. But this happens to be part of the charm of the hotel. After a day, you're quite familiar and everything is signed quite well.
Don't skip over drinks in the garden, especially if the weather is good. (See the Espresso Bar comment later.) For our first night, we had cocktails in the bar (which has great service and a more amazing menu), and then ventured out for dinner. A great selection of restaurants are in the vicinity if you don't want to dine there.
From the hotel, most of the attractions in the city are within walking distance. Or if you prefer, you can hire a bike and navigate in local style. The Espresso Bar serves Nespresso together with yummy pastries, so if you're feeling up to it, certainly take it in one morning or afternoon.
I was particularly fond of the Night Streets district, just one block from the hotel. Don't miss it for great boutiques and amazing coffee (and a coffee shop if you are so inclined). Lastly, the canal cruise on their boat is expensive but a nice luxurious experience - well worth it.
The only room for improvement would be breakfast. I found service every morning to be lacklustre and a disappointment compared to the rest of the hotel. The maitre'd was sometimes a little surly and the waitrons are forgetful sometimes.
