A nice enough place - minimalist, clean, adequate. The water is hot, great shower, bring your own soap and shampoo as the dispensers don't work very well. Bring your own Kleenex, too. My room was very quiet, bed comfortable. Breakfast good, but only included with some rooms (ask if you care about expense). Try the Le Pain Quotidien nearby -- great food, atmosphere and prices. The hotel is very convenient to major museums, the Vondelpark and the trams. There's a supermarket near the Stedelijk museum.
