Let's say that a total refurbish would not harm it. I cannot tell it was dirty, but an old moquette in the room does not allow to say the opposite either.
On the other side, the hotel is located in a lovely and rich neighborhood just across the Vondel park. It is quiet, relaxing and elegant. Another side of Amsterdam.
The attendee who welcomed us was funny, helpful and friendly: he listed some funny rules such as the reception closing down at (I guess) 23:00. He explained we would not have to disturb him after that time, since he was literally living and sleeping in the reception's back-office. Also the elevator needed to be turned off in night time, as nobody could have rescued if blocked in.
