We stayed here in a double room and a double room + extra bed configuration. The hotel is located as central as can be in walking distance from all the major attractions of Amsterdam. Really, we could walk to any place we wanted including the museums, Anna Frank huis, Rembrandtplein with all it's restaurants without even taking the tram.
The staff was lovely, eager to help with anything we needed. We bought museum tickets at the hotel to save us time at the enormous lines at the museum and bought tram tickets when we got tired from the walking.
The hotel has a "full service concept", which means there are free drinks and snacks at the lobby at all times, a cheese and wine complimentary afternoon snack and all the minibar refreshments and snacks are completely free. This is very nice and adds a touch of hospitality to the place. Also wifi is free (not easy to find in Europe luxury hotels).
Breakfast is very diverse and tasty with eggs, fresh fruit, yoghurt, cheeses, cold cuts, etc.
Rooms aren't big but very comfortable with all the amenities you could wish for and more. My only criticism is that they are obviously built for tall people (mirrors are hung high, shower taps are too high to reach for children).
All in all, an excellent hotel, which made our vacation even more wonderful and I would come back to again.
