Traveled to Amsterdam for work, stayed at Htel Amstelveen for three weeks. It was pleasant, but somewhat inconvenient for my purposes. The location in Amstelveen is probably better suited for business travelers who are working with companies in Amstelveen rather than Amsterdam. The neighborhood is mostly a suburban business park with few interesting sights nearby, and Amsterdam Centraal station is about 45 minutes away by metro.
The room itself was comfortable and included a basic kitchen with some useful equipment (including a toaster and a rice cooker, much to my surprise). This, combined with the presence of two supermarkets down the street made it very easy for me to prepare my own meals. The only minor fault here was that the stove did not have a working automatic igniter, but a spark lighter was provided to address this.
It's important to understand that this isn't a hotel but a "serviced apartment," so the typical expectations of "room service" don't really apply. Cleaning is done weekly and for the rest of the time, you are on your own.
There's some basic fitness facilities on site. The gym has several fancy machines, but strangely enough no free weights. There's also a tiny swimming pool, basically only good for one or two people at a time.
Wi-fi signal wasn't great, but hooking in with an ethernet cable makes things work much more smoothly.
