Just got back after staying two nights. Very clean room, we were upgraded to a junior suite for free which was nice, the room was massive. Comfy bed, clean linen, we had a room facing the rear (305) which was nice and quiet. Bathroom was good but, as mentioned elsewhere, it's a bit weird as you can see through from the bedroom in to the bathroom a little bit through the back of the mirror. Bit weird if you're not a couple, bit kinky if you are. I emailed ahead and asked for a room on the top floor which was kindly provided. I believe that that is also the least noisy floor as you don't hear anyone walking above you.
It's very quick to get in to central Amsterdam from the hotel, there's a tram stop (number 9) right outside the hotel, it takes ten minutes to get to dam square or the central train station (for direct trains to the airport). There's a late off licence across the road and a coffee shop next door if you fancy a spliff (although it didn't look too great). The hotel bar is also nice and although we didn't eat there, the menu looked good and the staff were friendly. It also seemed like a nice safe area if you're coming back late at night.
All in all a top trip and a very well priced, well placed hotel. For the price, I can't fault it!
