The hotel is a good budget hotel in a very nice neighbourhood a bit outside the city centre, but with easy access with tram 2 or even walking (about 20 min). The museumplein was only a 10 min walk away. Vondelpark is next to the hotel if one likes a run.
Only note is that the hotel has very steep steps going up to the rooms and no lift so if you have diffculties climbing stairs this is not your hotel.
I stayed on the 2nd floor in room 18. The room was nice and very quiet. Clean and had all the basic amenities you would need. I did not have breakfast, but it looked okay, normal hotel breakfast.
The bed was a bit on the soft side for me, but then again this is a matter of taste and did not distrub my sleep. You could see some wear and tear, but also some efforts of redecoration. The staff was helpful and efficient.
All in all I would recommed this hotel to anyone who does not mind steep stairs and is looking for a nice budget hotel.
