We stayed here for 4 nights and had no problems. When we first arrived they put is in a twin room with the beds pushed together but moved us straight away when we complained. The only downside was that double beds come with two single duvets as standard...and lumpy pillows! The room was clean, warm and a little 'cozy', but just what you need for a place to sleep and get ready.
The location was great if you're up for a bit of walking (or there is a tram stop about 200 meters from the hotel). You're about a 20 minute walk from Damn Square at a good pace, or a 10 minute tram journey. This hotel is a similar price to other hotels much further away from the centre.
The hotel breakfast was €15 each a day so we didn't eat there. There is a really nice little bakery around the corner that sold pastries, cakes and sandwiches (turn left out of the hotel and first left at the Chinese restaurant), and also a couple of little cafes close by. I would also recommend the AH (Albert Hein) supermarket about a 10 minute walk away along the tram route, just across the road from Mr. Visserplein next to Waterlooplein. Nice croissants and pastries and really cheap for a quick and low cost breakfast/lunch.
The luggage room was a god send, on the first day we arrived at the hotel at 10.00 and they held our luggage until 15.00 at check-in time, and on the day we left we checked out at 11.00 and collected our luggage at 19.00 before our journey home. It doesn't seem the most secure room so I'd advise keeping hold of any valuables, but we had no problems.
The staff were always friendly and happy to offer any advice on attractions/transport.
