It all depends what type of traveler are you: if you are in a group of boys, maybe this hotel would be OK. But if you are a family, girls or you are traveling alone, just please, take another hotel. The price is really high and I'm pretty sure you can get a nicer hotel, in a nicer place, with this money. It's really close to the Red Light District, that means it's REALLY loud at night - shouts, drunks, and that sort of thing - and you just can't go out on the streets after 9PM, 'cause it will be ONLY perverted men and drug dealing everywhere. I've only saw boys in the hotel, including shouting and banging doors in the middle of the night. They don't have room service and a stairway to hell that's almost a climbing will be waiting for you to go up and down. They also separate the building in two: one for non-smoking and another for smoking. But the reception is only on the non-smoking building, so if you need something at night, you'll have to show up for the pervs. You also have to pay for the breakfast and it is too simple for the price. Better to go downstairs and ask for a croissant at the bakery next door.
Although, the bed was really comfortable, they have a nice shower and friendly staff. But I just don't think that will cover up all that I just said. Choose a hotel further from Dam Square and stay okay.
