We have been to Amsterdam many times and stayed in many areas. Jordaan is our favourite area as it's still so close to the centre but quiet enough to get some rest. The area also has very good restaurants and shops nearby.
We stayed in The Times hotel after making a very last minute decision to come to Amsterdam a day early on a road trip in The Netherlands, and a very good deal at 79 euros. Considering the price, we expected something much less and as we were only going to be laying our head for the night, thought we'd just make do. But we were very pleasantly surprised with the accommodation. The room was clean and décor up to date. Bathroom had everything you need including shower gels and shampoos etc, service very helpful and friendly, the beds and pillows were pretty comfortable and it had air conditioning. Not much more you could ask for.
You don't come to this hotel for romance or to have luxury accommodation, however it is certainly better than many budget hotels we've stayed in and will certainly stay here again when on a budget trip to Amsterdam. It is the perfect base in which to explore Amsterdam.
The only downside is the stairs - BUT - this is an issue in most Amsterdam accommodation due to their tall thin buildings. However, where our room was, the steep stairs split 3 ways so was a little scary, I wouldn't recommend it if you have difficulty walking, or if you come back intoxicated! There are lifts but you still need to tackle some stairs to get to some rooms.
All in all, we would stay here again and for the price range is a great hotel
