We are not young so we were worried reading earlier reviews because of the 40 stairs from the street to the lobby. But...this IS Amsterdam after all and a lot of steep stairs here is business as usual at old world budget hotels ...and guess what...the friendly young man in attendance helped us get our luggage up!. We loved our stay here! Our room at the front on the main floor was a very good size...high ceilings and high windows...lotta old world charm... and quiet if you need that. . .... and the bed was SO comfy with down comforters and such. Our ensuite bathroom was very tiny and not fancy but, so what...we knew this was not a five star place with schmancy Las Vegas style bathrooms. ....and please assure me that you are not visiting Amsterdam for its bathrooms? Breakfast is basic and nothing to write home about but plenty to get you started for the day. Hotel Bema is just at the edge of the more expensive "city center" canal ring but we easily walked everywhere from here. Don't bother with the trams....Amsterdam is a wonderful walking city and Hotel Bema is a lovely place to stay close enough to walk to everything important. Although...the tram from the train station does stop right in front of this place and there is a line-up of taxi's sitting there too....so getting to and from anywhere is a breeze if you need wheels. If you don't want to spend a zillion bucks on a room but want to be comfy and cozy Hotel Bema is a great choice for so many reasons.
