We enjoyed three nights at the 'T Hotel in the middle of July. It should be an easy walk from the Central Station, but because the pavements are narrow in Amsterdam, a suitcase will make the trip more challenging.
The room was nice, we did not have a canal view, but didn't go to Amsterdam to sit by the window. The maid had left one of his/her Windex, and several places were a little dusty. The bed was comfortable and large, but the duvets were synthetic and even if they were thin, they were too hot during the night. We had to keep the window open for fresh air, and woke up with plenty of mosquito bites. As Northeners, that didn't ruin the vacation. There was an electric kettle, coffee and tea in the room, as well as a wine-opener! But the mini-fridge was very noisy, so we had to shut it off. The room had a lot of wardrobe space, and a free safe that was easy to use.
The location couldn't have been better, Jordaan is by far the best part of the city. The area is calm, clean and without the huge amounts of party-tourists you will meet in other parts of the city.
We hired a couple of bicycles (got information on where to rent them at the reception), and were very happy with this: It is quick and easy to get around (both cars and pedestrians yield to bikes!), there are bicycle lanes everywhere, you feel a little like a local, and since it's flat as a pancake, it takes no effort at all to pedal. And you can stop and go everywhere, forget the confusing public transport maps!
