This hotel is really in a great location for seeing Amsterdam. As another reviewer notes, you are skipping the historic-ness of Amsterdam for an air-conditioned room and very clean accommodation, but in summer (when we visited) we were very grateful for the cool room at night. My only criticisms are (1) they so not leave enough shower gel and shampoo for two people, so beware if you like to shower more than one person (!) and (2) the bar near the reception is extremely dark and gloomy which is rather off-putting when you first enter the hotel. Anyway, good points are that the staff are remarkably friendly and helpful, and the professionalism is manifested every time you have to interact with them.
