Couldn't fault the hotel or the rooms in any way. Room was modern and spacious and included a flat screen tv, fast WIFI, nespresso machine with free refills and a large bathroom. Hotel and its surroundings were neat and clean and parking is available on site or right beside the hotel. Prices at the bar/lounge were also not too expensive, hot chocolate €3, spirits €5, beer €3.50.
However to get to and from the city centre you must take the train, which is close by but costs €2.80 each way per person which builds up when travelling with family. The train also doesn't stop directly in town so a lot of walking must be done & the last departure time is at 9 so to see Amsterdam at night you must get a taxi or drive closer to town and walk to your destination which isn't very convenient. If you have walking difficulties or very young children this hotel would not be suitable due to the amount of walking involved.
Also since the hotel is situated right beside a busy main road, depending which room and at what side of the hotel you are allocated it can be noisy with boy racers / ambulances etc.
If the walking does not bother you and/or you have bicycles as a method of transportation then this hotel would be perfect.
