I booked two nights in this hotel, and I cancelled after I arrived and had a look at the hotel and room, paying 65 Euros as a penalty.
The location of this hotel is in fact, quite close to the museums and to the more chic shopping area. However, this hotel, or motel rather, needs a major renovation. The lift was in bad repair, and the carpeting worn through, even at the lobby. The rooms were, to be kind, fairly rundown as well. The beds and sheets looked clean, though. The receptionist was polite, and professional.
If you are looking for a purely budget hotel, this could be the place for you. But between this and Ibis-chain of hotels is a whole world of difference (huge tip towards Ibis). I finally ended up paying just 20 Euros more for a room at Novotel Amsterdam. I would seriously discourage you from staying at this hotel if you're on a romantic holiday.
