Stayed here twice on 2 long weekends away to Amsterdam. Having wanted somewhere to crash out after exploring it was perfect, only a 10 minute walk from Centraal station and a 15 minute stroll to Dam square.
The sizeable lobby gives off the feel of somewhere a little more plush, however the rooms were basic but clean. The staff were friendly enough, the Australian sounding lady was lovely and welcoming to all guests. The first time we had the shared bathroom, this wasn't ideal as the loo on the top floor is tiny and sharing the shower room was inconvenient. However, second time round we paid £10 more for a large, clean bathroom which I would recommend doing. Also, note the forth floor is a lot of stairs with no lift. It was good exercise but our larger friend wasn't too impressed ;).
Loads to do nearby, canals, bike rental next door, Subway & McDonalds 5 minutes away & we found the Dampkring coffee shop opposite one of the best! The popular argentinian steaks are also well worth trying!
Perfect hotel for our needs (small group of lads on a budget). However, I probably wouldn't recommend it for a romantic trip away.
