The worst thing about this hotel is the small room size. The double bed butts up against the wall on the long side, and only has 15 cm clearance from another wall on the short side. My wife didn't like this, I didn't mind (and slept on the wall side). In contrast, the bathroom was bigger than in a number of other hotels we used. However, you're in the city, so should only be in the room to sleep and shower! If you plan on spending a lot of time in the room, you might want to find (and pay for) somewhere bigger.
The hotel is within a few minutes walk of Amsterdam's Central train station. Buses, ferries, canal cruises, trams, and trains all come through here. Although the official red light district is a little further away, there are working windows in the streets and alleys around the hotel.
You are also close to a large number of Amsterdam's famous coffee shops, where a variety of intoxicants illegal in many countries can legally be bought and consumed. These shops are found throughout the tourist areas. Alcohol is also popular, but I didn't see the drunken violence I saw in other cities.
We didn't eat at the hotel. We found lots of small supermarkets selling souvenirs and food stuffs at reasonable prices, so we used them to buy breakfast and regular coffee, and there is a huge range of restaurants to try for dinner.
Without exception, the reception staff were very helpful and pleasant. I would happily stay here again.
