We travelled with 2 children and my parents. Minuses: Room was small, hardly big enough to fit a baby's cot. There is not much space to put your stuff once unpacked. There is NO AIRCONDITIONING (and it was 30 celcius the day we arrived!) and there is no ventilation in the loo. They gave us a fan, but it was still quite uncomfortable, and it was noisy with the windows open. Shower temperature is variable but not actually to unpleasant degree. There is only 1 lift and it broke down for one day. The decor and furniture are very dated (think grandparent's era) although clean enough. The hotel needs a thorough renovation. The hotel is overpriced but then Amsterdam is very expensive so it's probably "reasonable". Plus: Location is very good (5 minutes to Rembrandtsplein, 3 minutes to trams, staff are more friendly than most other locals. We enjoyed our trip to Amsterdam but I would not go back to this hotel. There must be better value for money elsewhere!
