I'm a big fan of slightly unusual hotels, and this one fitted the bill perfectly when I was researching a 1-night city break to Amsterdam.
The check-in process was a simple case of using one of the self-service touchscreen terminals and programming your own room key(s). From there it was up to the room.
Wow! I knew it was going to be compact, but it was exactly as I had imagined - small but practical, funky and modern. We were impressed and had a good play with the remote control mood lighting, window blind etc. The free WiFi and movies (including porn) was a nice touch - not something I've experienced before (even in more expensive hotels - I never understand why they can't include free Internet!).
The bed was superb - very large and incredibly comfortable. The bed linnen was simple and elegant, and ensured a good night's sleep after a long day exploring the City.
The communial areas of the hotel were very nicely styled with comfy seating areas and TVs to watch etc. Free-to-use Apple iMacs for Internet browsing. The 24h bar/restaurant was a nice touch, although we didn't really use it - preferring to eat out for our meals.
There is a tram stop almost immediately outside the hotel - we used it several times to get back into the centre. A number 5 tram took around 15-20 mins to get to Central Station, and we had an All-in-One travel ticket which made this easy (just swipe on, swipe off etc).
For the money, this hotel was superb value and highly recommended to anyone visiting Amsterdam for a night or two.
