The location was excellent: near Anne Frank's house, the Royal Palace and trams to other attractions. I am reasonably fit and was prepared for the 37 steps up to reception and 19 up to my room. So not recommended if you are not fit or have heavy luggage. As requested on booking, my single room was away from the street and quiet. It was definitely small but its unusual long shape made it functional and a big window (which could be opened) looked onto a large tree in a courtyard. The fittings and decor were modern and fresh. Storage was limited but I had only a small suitcase. The drink on arrival was very welcome and I enjoyed the communal area for guests at various other times. Breakfast was very good and having it on the balcony was a plus. I found the staff pleasant and helpful.
