My wife and I have just spent 3 nights here on a mid week break. We took a taxi from Centraal Station which cost 7€ and took less than 5 minutes. Although check in is nominally 3 o'clock we arrived at 12 and were met with politeness and the room was ready for us. We stayed in a lovely room on the 1st floor , it was nicely decorated in a luxurious manner rather than a modernist manner . The bathroom had twin sinks and a jacuzzi style bath with a separate shower. Toiletries were provided. The room was spotless as was the entire hotel as I could see. the staff were ever willing to advise and assist whenever they were needed. We did not take the breakfast option this time although people we talked to were happy with the quality. We did avail ourselves of the compementary coffee which was of a good quality and available 24 hours a day. The Hotel bar is quite small but the prices were consistant with bar prices and not inflated.
The location of the hotel is near to the 9 streets and is 3 minutes from the Spui, 5 minutes from Anne Frank and less than 5 minutes to Dam square. We found the hotel to be central enough as not to use any transport during our visit, even the museum quarter was less than 10 minutes walk. The Hotel has several good restaurants in the vicinity in various price ranges.
The only drawback I can possibly think of is that the hotel does not provide free wifi but this had no negative effect on our break.
We would definately stop here again on our next visit to Amsterdam and would reccomend it to anyone looking for a more romantic style of hotel or a very well situated hotel. I would say if you want a brash night life located hotel this is not for you
