Conscious is located right next to the 197 bus stop which goes to and from Schipol Airport. Thanks to the bus and early flight we arrived at the hotel some time before check-in. The reception (which was always manned) took our luggage and we went for a look around.
There's a supermarket nearby where we filled up on sandwiches after the long day. Looking around, we easily found the Van Gough museum, Rijksmuseum, Stedjikmuseum and Bols Cocktail House. The trams that stop nearby can take you anywhere in Amsterdam and you can pick up a 24 hour pass from the reception (don't forget to check-in and out on the tram!).
We were given Room 306 which included a large, comfy double bed, bathroom, and large window doors which opened to a balcony that overlooked the courtyards and gardens behind the hotel. Other than the thunderstorms we had one night, it was really quiet. It even had a flat screen TV with channels that you would expect to pay extra for in some hotels - we had Comedy Central on whenever we were in the room. It was clean and cleaned again every day.
We had to leave our key with reception before leaving for the city which was a bit odd so we made use of the (free) safe to protect our valuables. That's not to say that we felt the hotel was rife with pickpockets - the receptionists and cleaners were all really friendly.
Oh, and there's free Wifi!
