This hotel is a tram ride away from Central Station (tram 9) however it doesn't take too long to get to the hotel. There are also trams to Leidseplein (trams 7 and 10) where there are many bars and restaurants.
The hotel was very clean and had the building had its own character which you wouldn't get from chain hotels. The staff was friendly, knowledgeable and very helpful.
Our room was very clean and the room had very tall ceilings which I thought was an interesting feature. The shower was very good and the TV had lots of channels including BBC. The bed was good and we slept well although we had twin beds put together to make a double.
I have no really complaints about the hotel. Would I stay there again, yes. Although the tram stop is convenient, if you the sort of person who wants everything within walking distance you might want to try somewhere a little more central. Saying that, the price we paid was very good and you will similar prices in central Amsterdam.
