I went to Amsterdam with my daughter last weekend and we stayed at the Clemens. The hotel is in a great location, our room was clean, modern and tidy with a lovely little balcony though a bit small. Reception and breakfast area were beautifully presented, the breakfast was plentiful with a good selection.
Receptonists were very welcoming and helpful. I would recommend this hotel and we will be coming back with the rest of our family in the near future.
Thanks.

Room Tip: Just be mindful of the steep staircases as there is no lift

I was a little wary approaching the hotel because it didn't look too promising. But once inside it was lovely and (writing in June 2014) obviously pretty recently refurbished. The staff were welcoming, friendly and helpful. The breakfast room was big and airy and beautiful in the morning sun (you can also sit on the terrace overlooking the road). The room was small (minor contortions required to sit on the toilet!) but comfortable. My only tiny gripes: the sound of the nearby musical church bells every 15 minutes became wearing; and the pillow was a little lumpy (but I'm fussy about pillows). I'd happily stay again.

Spent 2 nights at the hotel and really enjoyed our stay. Room was small but clean and modern and with us not spending much time there was fine for our stay. Location is perfect - close to dam square, Anne Frank house and RLD. Staff helpful and free tea and coffee (even after we had checked out) was an added bonus. We were able to leave our luggage with the hotel as we had a late flight. The only thing that could be a negative if you were staying more than a couple of nights is the lack of storage (just a narrow cupboard).
People comment on the steep stairs (yes they are steep!) but this just added to the charm of it.

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.

The location was great for us, close to sites and train station. After a long trip with two young kids, we were greater with a drink of our choice on arrival. We had our drink on the lovely balcony overlooking the hustle and bustle of everyday Amsterdam.
The stairs leading up to reception are steep (understatement) but at least the receptionist offered to bring our bags up.
Overall, we were very pleased with this hotel, it is obvious that they going the extra step to make the guest comfortable.
