I stayed for 4 or 5 nights at Hotel Restaurant Larende. For the cost of most rooms in the city, it is a bargain. The breakfast is better than most. It is extremely clean and, except for one guy who might have been having a bad evening, very eager, friendly staff. I was concerned about the location. It is a safe area convenient to everything. The trams stop almost at the door and can take you three different directions into town (train station, upscale restaurant and shopping, red light district, museums. The Anne Frank House is just a ten or fifteen minute walk.
It really wasn't that big a deal to me, but maybe for some people. Bring earplugs in case you face the street.
I'm already booked for my next time.
