The only issue i had with the hotel was the very steep steps with no lift, but that's to be expected in Amsterdam. The hotel is very central, with shopping starting 50 metres frin the door. The room was great, they should add hanging racks in the bathroom. There is no cupboard though, but since i was alone, i had no issues. There was space in the roon for luggage though. Leidseplein is just 300 metres away and the area is safe enough fora woman to walk in the early hours of the morning without any concerns. I found the restaurants in most of Amsterdam pretty expensive, but there is an Albert Hein just a few blocks away. Most of the tourist attractions within the city are less than a 20 minute walk away. If you are on a budget, stay away from this hotel. With all the fabulous stores just a few metres away, it'll be hard to stay within your budget. Thr hotel isn't cheap though, so maybe find a hostel if ob a budget. Breakfast is not great...continental breakfast in the front office. Rather skip it and find something to eat in the surrounding streets. There is a coffee shop next door, but don't indulge too much as the steep steps to your room could prove difficult to manage. I would stay here again if i ever visit Amsterdam in the future.
