Lovely hotel. The room was clean, spacious, well decorated. The staff were friendly and genuinely helpful - they came to collect us from Amsterdam on the first night when we were lost trying to find our way to the hotel. Only two warnings really.
1. If you go out onto the terrace / balcony at night make ABSOLUTELY SURE that you do not shut the door behind you! There is nobody at reception at night to help you out, so if you have been in Amsterdam enjoying the bars and the cafes, please please please do keep your wits about you regarding those doors. You do not want to have to sleep in reception. Especially in the summer. The hotel is near to water and there are a lot of mozzies in reception at night.
2. As people have already mentioned, it would be ideal to stay in this hotel only if you have a car. However, we did not have a car and we managed quite well using a mixture of leg power and public transport. Be warned though - it is quite a long walk (although a very pleasant one), especially if you get lost, so take proper directions and maybe some water. If you want to enjoy the nightlife in the city centre you will not be able to as the last bus is a little after midnight. If you just want to wander around Amsterdam during the day however, and have a nice, friendly, quiet place to sleep at night, then this is the place for you. It is cheap and MUCH nicer than a hostel.
