I stayed here with a friend between 14th January 2013 and 16th January 2013.
We arrived here from train station and it was simple to find, about five to ten minutes wandering walk to get to. Overall getting from airport to hotel was simple, just get the train from airport to central station and then over the bridge towards Dam Square.
Reception staff spoke excellent English and quickly checked us in, we got a twin room that was very compact next to the lifts on the top floor, we decided we would ask if we could change, as the beds were cosy to say the least. Reception staff were happy to help and moved us to another room, still on the top floor but around the corner and it was a little larger.
The room was clean and tidy and decorated in a modern style; it had en-suite shower room and had towels with good views of the river if we stood on tiptoe. The room also had a safe that was large enough for money, passports and cameras etc.
We only stayed for two nights but saw quite a few of the tourist attractions including Anne Frank House, Madame Tussauds, Hermitage Museum, Sex Museum, The Amsterdam Dungeon, Nemo Science Centre, Het Scheepvaart Museum and took a riverboat cruise. We purchased the Amsterdam card, which on reflection was not worth it, as I do not think we used it enough to warrant the cost of £60 although it did include use of the trams, although we only used these once. Madame Tussauds and The Amsterdam Dungeon could be purchased at a reduced price together so I would recommend that.
The hotel was well placed for almost all of these attractions to walk, although it did snow which made it a necessity to wear a hat when we ventured out.
A last point, on Amsterdam in general rather than the hotel is that we found it quite expensive to buy food until we found sandwich cafes off the main tourist spots, so if you can get bed and breakfast then I would advise it as that would set you up well for the day. Oh and there is free Wi-Fi pretty much everywhere so saves on data usage on laptops and mobiles.
