As others have mentioned, the hotel is clean and comfortable. Our triple had two real beds and plenty of room. The breakfast was great. However, we felt like we were staying in a nice hotel in our hometown in the U.S. If we had been dropped here blindfolded we never would have guessed what country we were in. This is because the hotel is quite far from the center of Amsterdam, where most visitors want to spend their time. Although the staff said the tram ride to the city center was 10-15 minutes, it took a good 1/2 hour to get to the outer part of the center. After one night, we moved to a nice little hotel one block from the heart of the city and were able to walk to all of the famous sights, walk back to the hotel to rest, and walk out for more adventures.
