Average hotel, for the price we paid and the amount of time spent there worth the money.
We were allocated a room on the 3rd floor stairs were a bit of a nightmare but that is the same with most places in Amsterdam. Room was clean and spacious enough, very good location, The number 9 tram runs to central every 10 mins literally 2 mins walk from the hotel. If you are looking for somewhere to sleep and something located centrally very good, also you are allowed to smoke in the room which is a plus especially if your on the 3rd floor.
Overall good location, clean rooms and value for money - Would go back.
