The Aalborg Hotel is in the Old South area of Amsterdam, one stop on the rail line from Schipol, and is a 15 minute walk from the museum area, and on the route of the No. 3 tram, so reasonably well situated. The room I had was small (smaller than a room in a student hall of residence), but I expected this because my booking form did state "small single". So no surprises there. However, the toilet in the bathroom was so close to the wall that I had to sit sideways, not the worst thing that I've ever had to do. But the washbasin had a shelf above it which projected out so far that it was impossible to wash one's face. I solved that problem by removing the shelf. The shower worked well. The bed was comfortable, and I wasn't troubled by traffic noise (even though my room was at the front of the hotel overlooking the main road, and I am a light sleeper). My room was very clean. The staff were helpful and friendly. There is a charge for paying by credit card (I think 4%, but not sure). I paid 130 euros for two nights stay. I didn't use the restaurant for breakfast so cannot comment on that. By the way, if you are arriving at Schipol airport, be warned that Dutch ticket machines, for the rail ticket, only accept Dutch credit cards, so no use trying anything else. This means that you need to have euros for either the ticket machines, or to buy your ticket from the ticket office on the concourse.
