I stayed with my boyfriend for a long weekend in March 2014, and we were immediately struck with how quick it was to walk to from Central Station. It was also within a 2 minute walk of Dam Square, and 5 minutes from the Red Light District, where all the pubs, cafes and shops (and the obvious) were.
We didn't make use of the bar/restaurant so I can't comment on that, but know they had a happy hour cocktail deal that I should have taken advantage of!
The reception staff were very friendly and helpful, and it didn't feel forced as it does in some places we've stayed before.
The room was very small, but big enough to move around and put cases on the floor. Very clean (which is important to me), and tidy.
I would definitely stay at The Convent again, the price when we stayed and proximity to the main tram lines, the city generally and central station made it an absolute gem.
