This is a nice hotel located in a great section of Amsterdam. The Anne Frank house is located about a block away and you can walk to all the city attractions or public transportation is a couple of block away. There are a number of nice restaurants in the area within walking distance. The ladies at the front desk were very helpful in recommending places to eat and gave honest opinions of the food and locale. We stayed in a deluxe canal view room in the second building, which was huge by European standards; bathroom was average size. Upon checking into our room we were treated to fresh strawberries and chocolates, a delicious welcome. The decor is darker bold colors (our room was deep purple, black and red). We enjoyed our stay and would recommend the hotel to other guests.
My one recommendation would be to tell guests the services they provide. I just read another review about bike rentals, we were trying to rent bikes and didn't realize we could have done this through the hotel.
One great tool we discovered is the Trip Advisor City Guide app on your smartphone. You download the app, pick the city you'll be visiting and can pull up restaurants and attractions, all without using the data service on your cell phone. It has a great feature called "point me there" which gives you the direction and number of steps to a designated address you give. It's great.
