UPSIDE: You can't get as nice a place in Amsterdam for the price.It is fun with the gadget that controls the room lighting (color and intensity),TV,shades,and temperature. I am not a techie and I figured out the system in a few minutes. The location is a 20 minute walk to the museum area and 30 to central Amsterdam- through a beautiful,safe neighborhood with many upscale stores and restaurants. The tram to downtown is steps away from the front door and the train to the airport is a 10 minute walk. After a day of touring we would walk back by the FIDELIO restaurant, have a great meal, then walk a further 10 minutes to the hotel,check our email (free access) and then climb into a most comfortable huge bed with a big screen TV over it. Just perfect.
DOWNSIDE: There is little storage in the room so you need to live out of your suitcase. You need to be very neat as the rooms are really small. The shower was a bit annoying as it never got really, really hot and the "rainshower" is just useless. You need to start the shower by closing the door and coming back a minute later so the hot water is running well. Otherwise you get doused with cold water. The sliding curved doors for the shower and toilet "pods" are heavy and don't always glide easily. May be tough if you are not in shape or elderly. So some minor irritants. Some unavoidable artwork is typical in your face European (you are in Amsterdam) and may be sexually offensive to some and the coffee downstairs is very expensive- a problem if you like a few cups to get you going.
ALL IN ALL: A nice hotel with helpful staff I would stay again without question. We paid about 86 Euros/night and you can't do better for what you get. Best for a single traveler but OK for two.
