We stayed here for Easter weekend (Thursday to Sunday).
The rooms are clean and fresh, the TV has a couple of English channels(BBC 1+2)
The staff are friendly and always happy to help. We were a bit worried about the distance to city center but this was no problem by public transport with the small map we were provided with by the hotel.(Approx 20 mins by bus or tram)
There were no problems with transfers to Airport and city center and all the attractions in Amsterdam,we did most of them, and all by public transport, no need for taxis even for a gig that we went to out of the city center on Saturday night, and then had to use a night bus to get back at 5 am on Easter Sunday morning. Small walk to the bus stop but dropped almost at the hotel. All the bus drivers were also friendly and happy to help.We bought a 72 hour pass for about 18 euro I think, very good value.
We had a great stay here and would recommend it to anyone who is not afraid to get out of the center and see a bit more
