Our stay started well - able to check-in far earlier than we expected (not long after 10am) and get a wash etc after our journey. The hotel is nothing special as a building - but more than adequate for what it is - a hotel ! It is very central - a 10 min walk from Centraal Station or 3 min tram ride. Wherever you go in central Amsterdam the hotel is not far away - usually 15-20 min walk from most of the action. The rooms are clean (we were a party of 7 with 5 rooms between us - one room was a little under par on the cleanliness stakes) and the beds very comfortable indeed. From my own point of view I had a very quiet and confortable nights sleep both nights we stayed. The hotel bar was pleasant and bar staff very friendly - not somewhere to spend a whole night-out, but good for a few pre-city walk drinks etc. and not too expensive. We didn`t eat at the hotel - too many good restaurants within walking distance. Breakfasts can be had at the cafe right next door for 5 or 6 Euros for a full cooked Dutch (or even English if you want) . As for exploring - cross the road in front of the hotel and head-out down the narrow passageway - keep going and you find allsorts - a mini (and tame) Red Light street and then the increasingly elegant streets towards the Jordaan area - all well worth walking through. Veer to the left and you can be around the Anne Frank House in little over 10 mins. Veer to the right and in the same time you are near to the Noodermarkt area - a very good farmers type market with a few nice bars around the area.
