We stayed for two nights in June. The hotel is about a three to four minute walk from centraal station, quite easy to find as long as you know whereabouts you're looking. I'd definitely recommend having a quick look on google street view so you can see the other shops by the entrance. Because it doesn't have a large frontage, it's just a doorway.
We arrived at 2.30, check in is 3pm. They happily held our bags for us til check in, but for some reason our room wasn't ready til gone 4pm. They offered us a free coffee in their coffee shop next door, so we just waited a bit and watched he people going up an down Damrak.
Our room was fine. I can't reall say 'nice' as it was a plain white room, white walls, white blinds, white floor, white bed, white chair, with a few gold lamps. I know this is the 'design' aspect, we caught a glimpse of another room while was being cleaned, it looked alot more interesting than our room.
That said, the room was spotlessly clean, which must be difficult for a white room lol. Wasn't terribly small either. Dont get me wrong, it WAS small, but I've been in smaller in NYC. There was room for our bags and room to walk past one another.
We stayed in room 602, top floor at the back of the building. We requested a quiet room with opening windows, and 602 for the bill perfectly. It was quiet, but with the windows open we could eat the church bells from dam sq. but that didn't bother us, and we both slept really well. I'm a terrible light sleeper too, so it must of been really quiet.
Another plus point, the TV had bbc2 and cbbc. So at least we could put on a bit of tv in the background while we got ready.
All in all I would definitely stay here again.
Great location, great staff, and clean comfortable rooms.
