We had the most pleasant experience at Hotel Sebastian's during our stay.
The hotel is modern and romantic (so really nice for couples) and is central considering it's a 10- minute pleasant walk from Dam Square (which is basically the centre of Amsterdam). The good thing though is that it is situated in a quite and picturesque neighborhood away from the city noise and the loud crowds that stroll the Red Light District (although it's very close if you want to walk there). It is also very close to all the important museums, fine restaurants, shops and other attractions.
Upon arrival we were welcomed by the very professional, knowledgable and friendly receptionists who throughout our visit were always eager to assist in everything. They also informed us that our stay was upgraded to "breakfast included" since we booked for many days through trip advisor.
The breakfast was excellent (scrambled eggs, beans, sausages, cereals, croissants, cheese, different types of coffee, different types of juice and many more). We highly recommend the breakfast which I think is at 10 euro per person which is quite low for what is actually offered.
The room we had (standard double) was really beautiful and it overlooked the canal! Upon entering the room on the first day they arranged some strawberries and chocolates on a small table for us! I wouldn't say that the room was small, even though the Hotel had the courtesy to warn us upon booking that some people find it small. I found it very adequate in size. Furthermore there was free WiFi and a nice coffee machine which could make 4-5 different types of coffee. The TV had quite a few english-speaking channels which was a further plus.
This hotel is highly recommended! We went other 3 and four star hotels in Europe and non of them were of this standard.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):

Whether you are in the capital city for business or to enjoy the vibrant nightlife of Amsterdam, Sebastian's is the place to be. The location alone is worth the stay: a stone's throw from the Jordaan district, with its numerous cafés and restaurants, and Haarlemmerstraat, home to a wide variety of shops and a number of colourful Amsterdam outdoor markets. The hotel bar also boasts a unique and charming atmosphere. It is a ‘real' bar with a contemporary, trendy design and a meeting place for both young and old, who come here to enjoy a delicious cappuccino, cold beer or glass of one of the wide range of wines served. All of this can be enjoyed in a relaxed, jazzy setting. ... more less
