I won't repeat all the details which many other reviewers have given, but this hotel is really very very good for Amsterdam. I've stayed various places including the Seven Bridges and this is much nicer and in a vastly superior part of the city.
It's on the edge of an area called the Nine Streets which has an amazing array of quirky shops and cafes, all independent, unique and totally wonderful. For lunches and snacks try Buffet Odette-amazing sandwiches, quiche, fresh juice, and toffee cake. Or Bagels and Beans on Kaizergracht for brekkie. Frozen Fountain is a wonderful interiors shop on Prinsengracht. In the other direction about 5 minutes away is Kalverstraat-the main big name shopping street, another 5 mins and you are in Dam Square.
The location really is unbeatable.
Finally I would advise people to pay for a superior room -they are much larger and brighter than the standard ones and great value at around £100 a night.
