The hotel is a bit out of the city center, however it is very easy to reach the center with the trams that stop right in front of it. It will take you approx. 10-15 minutes. There is also a train station within 5 minutes walking distance. There are many nice bars and restaurants in this area, so if you just want to go out for a coffee during the day or a relaxing drink in the evening you really don't have to go to the city center.
I did not go for breakfast in the hotel, although it did look nice (buffet style), but I found a number of places offering a nice breakfast close by.
The hotel looks lovely as it is an old building, but with a modern and cool interior. The three crosses that are considered an Amsterdam symbol are very well represented throughout the hotel in a contemporary manner.
I also really liked the large picture as a head board for the bed. The bed is not bad, however not the greatest either...
The room is modern with a nice TV and good bathroom. Water pressure can sometimes be a bit of an issue, but it was perfect in the room. The amenities in the bathroom are quite poor, eg. bath and shower gel dispenser attached to the wall, but no conditioner available. I would advise to bring your own amenities. I did not find a shower cap either.
I had a tram line right in front of my room, so there was a bit of noise coming from that. Ask for a room at the back side.
Considering that Amsterdam hotel rooms are always quite pricey, I think that this hotel actually does offer quite a good value for money.
