We stayed here for three nights and had a good experience. Although it is a bit outside of the main attractions in Amsterdam, you can walk into town in about 30 minutes or walk across the street to the metro. The station is easy to use and its a very quick ride to central station. The hotel was clean-the room was a bit spartan but we werent there to stay in the room so it was adequate. Beds were a bit hard. The only window that opened was very narrow so not much air came through. Friends we were traveling with said the a/c wasnt working. We didnt try to use it since it was cool outside. The breakfast buffet was ok-not the best we had on our trip but certainly good. The hotel is currently renovating their dining and lounge areas so the lounge is in a basement and is not fabulous. It was fine for relaxing after a long day of sight seeing. It was nice to be away from the craziness of the bikes, trains, and street cars so we didnt mind being out of the middle of the city.
