It's a great place if u want to enjoy Amsterdam and need a proper big bed, the location is great walking to most places and 30 sec from tram, ask for waterfront view if available, the bathroom is clean, the stairs are soooooo narrow and no bell captain so bring small bags its obviously all Amsterdam all buildings have narrow stairs, the staff was very helpful and it's no luxury but very convenient and good price and very comfortable will go back :)

Do not book here! What a terrible place! We got the ground floor back room without windows (probably a former storage room?) and paid €179,- for a saturday night. Smelly,musty, cracked tiles round the washbasin (in the room) and and in the bathroom you practically had to climb over the toilet to get to the shower. What a horrible experience! Never again.

Stayed here for a short City break with another couple on a Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday night in mid April. Firstly, I must point out that we only paid around £80 each for the 3 nights, no breakfast, which is cheap as chips. We were lucky enough to have a canal facing room but our friends had a back room which had no view at all. Bed linen was clean and beds comfortable. Location is excellent and perfect for all the interesting areas of Amsterdam. Reception staff very nice. Down sides were that there is a Disco slap bang next door and on the Tuesday night the heavy drum and bass went on until people left noisily around 4.30am. Not sure of the regularity of the Disco but I'm guessing it gets into full flow at weekends too. The carpet in our room appeared not to have been hoovered for some good few weeks and as a result there was hair in clumps underfoot which sort of put me off walking around barefoot. As my heading says you get what you pay for. Would probably consider paying a touch more next time.
