If you check the hotel website, it will tell you NH Museum Quarter is located 1 km from the city centre. When you get there, you will discover it is possible for a city to have more than one city centre! The hotel is actually some 3 km from Dam Square which most people believe is the centre of Amsterdam. Oh, well!
The hotel itself is lovely, cosy and secure. While we are made to wait a bit for our smoking room (we are reminded it was only a request, not a confirmation), the room itself makes up for the delay. It's on the first-floor, overlooks the canal and is quite simply huge (we were upgraded, it seems). The room is well appointed without being luxurious and the bed is very comfortable. The bathroom has nice, large towels and basic amenities. And there is a complimentary tea/coffee service which the staff is happy to replenish.
Getting around by tram in Amsterdam is easy and the stop for nos. 16 and 24 is a street away. The staff is helpful in showing us how to get there, and efficient the next morning in arranging a taxi for us to get to the station. And oh, the complimentary internet is available only in the lobby but irritatingly requires a fresh password every 30 minutes.
Overall, this has been a pleasant stay although we wish they hadn't been quite so imprecise with the location.
