We found this hotel a decent and quiet one, not new or luxurious, but adequate for a short stay. We took a taxi from the airport to the hotel to save time due to our short 3 day stay, it cost us about EUR 50.
The 4-bedded room (2 x 2 single beds placed together) was reasonably big with just enough room for walking (but we have seen more cramped ones, so this was ok to our standard). We found the room not very user friendly. The bath gel dispenser was located at a weird position so you would end up hitting it or knocking the cover off during your shower. Doors creak loudly whenever you open or close them. We could hear sounds of the tap running or doors creaking from the room next door very loudly. The bathroom and toilet is located in 2 separate cubicles, side by side, with the basin located outside at a corner behind the door to the room.
Wifi was fast with good connection. The hotel staff at the reception was polite, though she offered information only upon request and further probing. You can buy the tram ticket from the reception or on the tram itself from the conductor. Remember to tap in and out on the card reader.
The hotel is easily accessible by tram (number 9). Quite near to city centre, but i believe it should still take at least 15 min to walk there (we didn't try it). However, we walked to Nemo. Took us 15 minutes. A few eateries/restaurants near the hotel.
Breakfast cost about EUR16 per pax, so we decided not to go for it. We tried a small cafe just steps away from the hotel entrance. It cost us much less and we liked the food served (croissant, toasted bread, eggs, bacon, ham, jam, butter, coffee, tea).
This hotel is not bad for a short stay. Overall we had a good stay, but I would want to try another hotel when i visit Amsterdam in the future.
