We stayed for a couple of nights at the Omega hotel and overall it wasn't a good experience. Only advantage was the location, in a quiet neighborhood close to the museums and Vondelpark, about 15-20 minutes by foot from the canals. Otherwise, the hotel is outdated and quite dirty, and I would strongly advise against staying here, even for one night.
The room we stayed in was located on the fourth floor and it probably hadn't been vacuumed or cleaned for some time before we arrived. The carpet was dirty and there was hair all over the bathroom, including inside the shower. Although we had booked a double bed, the room had two single beds put together, with a large space inbetween. One of the beds didn't have a pillow, but a piece of incredibly hard foam, which was impossible to sleep on. Sheets and towels were fresh, though were not changed during our stay. There was dust everywhere, on the table, on the nightstands, on the bedside. The drapes were dirty, dusty and torn. Furniture was outdated and poorly maintained.
Even though supposedly the hotel offered Internet, WiFi reception was poor even at the ground floor in the reception area, and virtually in-existent in the rooms located on the top floors.
The breakfast was basic, but the quality was ok (bread, cheese, salami, butter, yoghurt, milk, cereal, jam, chocolate spread, some fruit, juice, coffee, tea), however the breakfast area was too small to accommodate all the hotel's guests and would often become crowded. Also, the kitchen lady wasn't doing a very good job at cleaning the plates and cutlery.
The Omega hotel needs a serious renovation and should really start paying more attention to the way rooms are being cleaned.
Looking back, I wish we had payed a little bit more and stayed at a cleaner and nicer hotel.
