As a frequent business and pleasure traveler accustomed to big chain hotels this was a great respite and an even better experience. My family of 4 had a room with 3 beds and a fold out bed--plenty of room for us. The location was excellent--Amsterdam is a small city and we were able to walk it all and never even bothered with the tram. Upon arrival, we were greeted like old friends by Roel, presented with a map and given a quick overview on how to get everywhere we wanted to go. Each time we returned to the hotel we were greeted with a smile and by name. One of the girls working there kept apologizing as it was her 2nd day--and her service was a 10 out of 10. Felt like we were staying at a friends home the entire time--and the smell of breakfast cooking daily was heavenly. The hotel is on a quiet block just steps from the main museums.
Ask Roel and he will provide you with some places to eat out of the main tourist area that were reasonable and enjoyable. If you want a luxury room, 3 restaurants, a bar and turn down service this is not for you. If you want to be greeted with a smile by name each time you walk in and have a clean comfortable place to stay I can tell you the Fita is for you.
A few handy notes on tourism: During high season the museums are very busy--go early if you are going. the art museums have huge throngs of tour groups taking pictures of paintings (I don't get that really). Unless you want to wait on line for 2 hours buy tickets for the Anne Frank house online before you go! The lines were around the block but we walked right in. We took a bike tour w Fat Tire and i will post a separate review of that.
