When my friends and I arrived at PC Hooft Hotel we were rather impressed at its location (it's on a rather plush street near the museums/galleries). However, we were not prepared at all for the very steep staircase which seemed to go on and on. Luckily we were only there for a few nights so we only had little cases to drag up the stairs!
The room I stayed in had a small window which I kept permanently open due to the room STINKING of cigarettes! I sprayed alot of my perfume to mask the odour. There was a communal shower which wasn't too clean.
The positive side was the staff were friendly and 'laid-back' (well this is Amsterdam if you know what I mean). The breakfast was very good, we helped ourselves to a mighty amount it too!
My recommendation is that this is a very niche Hotel, in other words if you a) have Back Problems/Disabilities b) are put off by smoke smells c) are older than 30 then this hotel IS NOT FOR YOU!
