If you are looking for a convenient, walking distance hotel near the Amsterdam Centraal station, then this is convenient - 5 min walk just across the canal from station (although there are other options in the area). But that is the only positive thing I can honestly say about this hotel.
I stayed as part of a work conference (offsite luckily), so also have the benefit of feedback from several other colleagues also staying in the hotel (all with consistent views). The only good thing I can say about the hotel is the location. Now the bad:
--- The hotel is dated - old carpets, rooms etc. And the rooms have a bit of a cheap fell to them.
--- When I opened the drawer in the coffee area of my room, there were several open packets of sugar, a dirty spoon, and a "liquid" of some sort that had been spilled in the drawer (clearly not the best room service).
--- Several of the glasses in the room were dirty, with a couple retaining lipstick stains.
--- The wireless internet is disfuntional (not even good enough to connect and get a regular email download). This is something ALL of us experienced, so not a specific issue for my room.
--- I cannot comment on the breakfast because the only morning I made it there was a line, and they did not have sufficient room for the guests (so ended up leaving due to time constraints). Poor mgt in not having enough seating available? Or just an awesome breakfast commanding a line worth waiting for? Will let others who made it in be the judge....
I am not a picky traveler and am generally very satisfied with a decent level of quality and service, but for Amsterdam (and even close to the train station) there are many other options (and above all - if you need wireless internet in your room - DO NOT COME HERE).
