I stayed here for 3 days in July (had a conference in city centre). An easy 30 minute walk to the centre, and Amstel station is very close. Room was nice, and breakfast was great (albeit a little too expensive). It's better not to eat at the hotel unless you have to (overpriced and service is slow); a grocery store and some cheaper restaurants are close by (on the way to the centre). Polite and helpful staff; they also let me check in 5 hours early, which was greatly appreciated.
