It's funny that almost every review of hotels in Amsterdam starts with "the stairs are narrow." Take a tour of the city via canal, bike, bus, etc and you'll find out why the houses are so skinny. If you don't like it then pay > $300/night for a modern hotel.
Initially we booked only one night last week because we wanted to check out the hotel first. I ended up staying 4 nights although in three different rooms. Moving rooms was a pain although the staff lugged our heavy bags downstairs to the locker room and back up for us. On the final move all of our luggage was already in our room when we returned to the hotel.
We found the staff very helpful and had interactions with the morning and night crew. They were there before 8 am and late enough into the evening, like 22 hrs.
If you book a canal view in the front be careful because it can get loud. The hotel is located conveniently around the corner from Rembrandtplein but not directly on the square. However, all it takes is a few loud drunks yelling @ 2 am. Then in the morning the seagulls squawk and there is traffic on Amstel Street. There is a double set of windows which blocks out most of the sound but then the room might get stuffy.
My only complaint that is within the hotels control is the door locks. When you shut the doors you have to insert the key in order to get the lock to retract so you can gently shut the door. Just turning the handle doesn't work. The other method is to slam the door, very hard. After 8 am on the upper floor is sounded like mini bombs were going off. Of course if you're an early riser this shouldn't bother you.
