I stayed here for 3 nights while in Amsterdam on business and thought this was a really great hotel. Very good value for money.
It is in a really busy area, just off of the red light district and near lots of bars and restaurants. Late at night it is still pretty lively! Having said that, the hotel and my room were quiet. it has 24 hour reception and friendly staff. The hotel and my room were extremely clean, modern and well equipped.
The room had a new flat screen tv, and was spotlessly clean and modern - a really nice room.
By reception there is a bar area served by the receptionist which was great for getting a cold beer or a coke.
For location, if you want to be a stone's throw from some of the busiest parts of Amsterdam, it is terrific.
Personally I loved this hotel, thought it was excellent value for money and had no complaints whatsoever.
I'd definitely stay here again and am happy to recommend it to anyone, except possibly older more reserved guests, simply because it is in a "lively" part of town. However I should add that to me the area seemed perfectly safe all the time, including very late at night.
