This is a good value hotel which could not be better placed for the museums - literally only 100 yards or so from the van Gogh, and less than 10min form the Rijksmuseum.
What I liked: the location, which is also very convenient for trams running into the town centre on lines 2 and 5; the room was quiet (looked onto a courtyard), and although the bed was soft we slept well - I asked for a thinner pillow, which was provided; staff were helpful, and could sell tickets for (some of) the museums, canal trips etc. The breakfast was a good quality buffet - I particularly liked the muesli and the brown bread. The TV has several English language channels.
What could be improved: the small toilet/bathroom didn't have an extractor fan, so was a bit whiffy; some carpets in the bedroom and in communal areas were stained, and needed changing; on arrival, I noticed a small stain (which looked like blood) on the wall in the bathroom, and cleaned it off myself after two days when it was still there.
Overall: very good value - needs a bit of TLC on the carpets etc.
