Stayed four nights at the beginning of my 2 1/2 week European trip. Arrived about 10:00 in the morning and was greeted by Angelo. He was very welcoming; even though he admitted he was a little under the weather, he took the time to chat and get to know me a bit and then walk me upstairs to show me my room as well as the breakfast area. As I was too early to check-in he went over some points of interest on a map and told me he would email/text me when my room was ready.
The location is excellent: less than 10 minutes walk from the train station, about 5 to Dam Square and very close to the Jordaan
The room itself was very clean and comfortable. The bed was soft and felt great after walking around the city all day. The best way I can describe the decor would be cozy/homely. There's a small fridge (always a nice thing to have), a flat screen TV, and a coffee maker (in case you're way too lazy to walk up one flight of stairs to the dining area). My room was on the side of the building fronting the street which seems like a quiet side street but can actually get quite noisy at night when groups of rowdy kids/drunks pass by.
Breakfast is self-serve. There were meats, cheeses, bread, yogurt, cereal, eggs, tea and a coffee maker. If you like, you can also use the kitchen to cook up an omelette or scrambled eggs. Oddly, I didn't see another guest the whole time I was there, perhaps because I was usually out the door by 8-8:30. The kitchen is always open in case you want a snack or a drink.
