The location, while far out of the city is easy to make up with the tram system that is a mere 10 minute walk from the hotel along the canal. The rooms are quite typical, and quiet, no noise issues for us. We had a 3 bed room, and it was a typical 2 bed room with a cot tossed in for the third bed, nothing overly nice or really that comfortable in the form of a third bed, just basic. The other two beds were quite comfortable, and the room itself was well suited and seemed to have been refit recently.
The downfall was the showers in the morning and the inconsistent water temperature which came from the shower. This made showering more difficult then it needed to be as the showers seem to zip between cold to boiling hot quickly. We tried to hold off and use the showers at night, rather than in the morning and the same issue persisted.
Other than that, the hotel doesn't seem as friendly on walk up or arrival at night as many of the clients seem to be out front for a cigarette. While this area is known to not be a very nice one, we had very few issues with locals or other guests in or within the area of the hotel over our 2 night 3 day stay.
Over all, if you are looking for a hotel outside the centre of Amsterdam with good links to all that the city has to offer and out to the airport, this hotel seems like a prime candidate as long as the hot water issue isn't a constant problem seen throughout other reviews. I'd suggest the place even with this problem as for dollar value we did end up getting a nice room, in a fairly O.K location with the tram link, so I don't have too much to complain about over all.
