Nice place located around the center of the Prinzengracht, with good tram access, on a quiet street. The front desk staff was always friendly and helpful -- this is worth staying here alone. There is a lovely garden out back - quite a treat in a busy town like this. Our room had a nice view of the canal. The bathroom was clean and perfectly adequate. We had a room safe and a desk. I was pleasantly surprised to find they have an elevator, which is great considering how vertigo-inducing some Amsterdam stairwells can be, and is nice when you're travelling with an elderly parent.
We booked here at the last minute, so I did not do my research to see that they did not have A/C. Not uncommon for a small hotel in northern Europe, and normally not a problem. It was just really hot this month, there were mosquitoes (no screens, also not uncommon for northern Europe), and it also meant having the windows open at night on a weekend with a big street party going on. Also the mattress was really squishy and beat-down feeling. The rooms were tiny (barely room for both bed and suitcase). Other than that, though, everything was great.
