We had a wonderful time at the art'otel the week we stayed there.
Location: it is across from Amsterdam Centraal. Wonderful restaurants and pubs of all kinds and for all budgets are within walking distance, as are museums and shopping.
Hotel staff: the staff was very cordial and quick to help, especially the front desk and housekeeping.
Room: the large and comfortable rooms each center around a piece of art, and they are funky. The bed was really, really comfortable. The bathrooms are European, so the toilet and shower are separated only by smoked glass. This is made more noticeable by the open design of the overall room, but we did not find it to be an issue. We had an outward-facing room, and there was very little noise from the street - which is remarkable, because we were there during the World Cup, so there were many people out and about.
Public spaces: the restaurant, bar and library areas are very comfortable and stylish. The pool and fitness area are both excellent. One thing to note for parents: much of the current art in the library and other public spaces is focused on fertility, so it may provoke some memorable family conversations.
Overall rating: We very much enjoyed our stay and definitely recommend the hotel. I'd rate the hotel five stars except that, each night we stayed, we ordered a container of ice, a dessert and some bottled water. Each night, room service delivered the dessert and water without the ice bucket. Five straight days, we asked the room service person to go back downstairs and bring us ice :-).
