For one night in Amsterdam, I needed something very central so that I could maximize my time - the Convent Hotel was just the ticket. I could walk to this property from Central Station with ease and that was carrying my luggage!
Check-in was a little slow, but the staff were polite. I found the room to be a little on the dark side, even when turning on all the lights, and I do agree with past reviews about the bed that's raised in the middle and makes you feel like you're rolling off the side, but in spite of those little details, I really have no complaints. The room was a good size and included all of the ammenites that you would expect in a hotel of this class; tea and coffee making facilities, English speaking channels on the tv, nice toiletries etc. I particularly liked the blue-tiled feature on the bathroom wall - it was a nice local touch.
When walking outside of the hotel, you will find that it's less than a 5 minute walk from Dam Square, and there are plenty of shops and restaurants nearby. Should you be looking for a good restaurant, I recommend Ponte Vecchio across the street towards Dam Square a bit - it was fabulous.
