I needed a single room in a hotel near tram stops as I have difficulty walking. Booked this after I had seen the reviews and found I could get it with the flight on my card points. i had a small well decorated single room overlooking the main street. The tram noise did not bother me but it might bother some. The staff were very helpful when I needed to contact a doctor to arrange for a prescription. The breakfast room is light and airy. I thought the breakfast a touch expensive but it is Amsterdam. If you turn left there is a not very good bar and tram stop. To the right 1 block away are some restaurants and another tram stop, a further block gets you to a good pub / cafe.
TRAVEL TIP. BUS 279? (Can't be sure of my memory on this) From Schipol to the Museumplein then tram 2 will get you almost to the hotel door.
