Stayed at the Hotel Ramenas for 6 nights Aug 2013. We didn't want to pay too much for accomodations so it came to about $125 a night.
I've been to Amsterdam many times and have travelled around a lot. That being said, this is by far the most HORRIBLE room I have ever stayed in! We stayed in Room #1 on the first floor up the stairs. Everything looked fine until we opened up the door to the combination toilet/shower. The stench of mold and other odors was disgusting. And the fan circulating it didn't help. We weren't sure what combination of keeping the fan on/off and the door open/shut made it any better. By the 2nd day we made the executive decision not to poop there. What looked like black grout around the tiles was actually black mold everywhere! The water didn't drain properly and collected in the corner even a quick shower caused the whole room and toilet area to be wet.
Never really saw a maid but instead of changing the sheets, extra towels magically appeared almost daily. By the end of the trip we had about 8 wet towels around the room. After reading other reviews I brought my own sheets and left them there at the end of the trip; otherwise they would have been burned upon my return home.
Breakfast was a set meal. Simple but adequate. Never had any problems getting an extra glass of juice as other people have said. Breakfast times were 8:30am - 10am. and they were a little strict with that. There are lots of places to get breakfast in the area if you miss it.
WIFI was very slow and would drop in and out.
It is about a 15min walk from the train station which I was fine with and convenient if you ever get lost, just follow the directions to Centraal Station and then go left! Loved the Jordaan area, but it's a noisy street which is how our room faced.
I would probably stay on the other side of Amsterdam near the Artis Zoo next time with better accomodations for the same price.
