Hotel Pax is a cute, clean place to stay, and the location is absolutely superb. It's right on a major street between Anne Frank House and Dam Square. Lots to see and do, all within walking distance. From Central Station, it was only 2 short tram stops, then a 4 minute walk at most. There's also a supermarket up the next block across from Westerkerk Church. The hotel offers great customer service with all the basic conveniences, and a few extra touches. I would definitely stay here again.
My #15 room was for a single traveler (twin bed) with a shared bathroom between 4 rooms. Towels are provided but bring your own toiletries. No AC, but has a large window that you can open. I could hear the church bells in the distance and I found them a pleasant reminder that I'm in a fabulous European city with a lot of history.
Room Amenities (Single/twin bed with shared bathroom):
FREE in-room wifi that worked flawlessly
Water kettle and Nescafé instant espresso, tea bags, powdered creamer/sugar
Small TV (I didn't turn this on or use at all)
In-room sink with mirror
Window that opens (no screen) with thick drapes that blocked out most of the sun
Hotel character and charm: the outside of this building is photo-worthy with various gargoyles staking out their territories on the roof top, plus pretty balconies and ornate facade detailing. When you see the outside, then you understand those stairs on the inside. Inside, there's some cute modern styling efforts, high ceilings, and funky light fixtures. The wood floors in my room looked brand new. The room was very tidy and clean; the bed was make up with clean, crisp white sheets.
Great customer service: The host helped me with my bag (SWEET) and seemed genuinely happy to greet a hotel guest. Due to the early morning hour of my arrival, no rooms were ready yet. He offered to store my bag for me, then bring it up to the room when it was ready. Without me even asking, he gave me a city map and marked off a few nearby recommendations (breakfast places, supermarket, etc) which I found very helpful. Luggage storage is no problem upon check out either, if your flight or train leaves later in the day. The rooms are serviced daily, towels changed, and the coffee/tea station was replenished.
