This is a pretty new hotel in a re-developed area of Amsterdam. If you are looking for something bang in the centre, this is not it. I spend a lot of time in Amsterdam, mainly for work, so know it pretty well. As nice accommodation in Amsterdam though, this is fine. You just need to weigh the distance from everything against price, time, etc.
As a newish hotel I thought the rooms, lobby, and gym were all of a good quality. My room was spacious and even had a sofa under the window. I was disappointed with the wi-fi. Either charge and give good quality or make it free and give good quality. Crappy free wi-fi is not the way to go.
Despite some of the reviews, this is not a central hotel. It is a solid 10-15 walk to the central station (and I walk like a New Yorker), but it does have the #26 tram right in front, which is one stop to the the central station. To get to the Museumplein, Leidseplein, RLD, or places like that, you are at least 30 minutes away by public transport. There is also a taxi stand right in front.
Another alternative nearby this hotel is a brand new Doubletree that also has a Starbucks, if you are into that kind of thing, on the ground floor instead of ever more Douwe Eberts. To be more central in a similarly priced chain hotel, I'd look toward the Radisson Blu in the centre or one of the other chain hotels around the Leidseplein.
