I was actually a bit worried about this hotel, there was quite many bad reviews, about a worn down hotel, with a not very helpful staff. When we arrived I was pleasantly surprised.
First of all the room: It had a view right to one of the canals / rivers in Amsterdam, so people would sail past right outside, this in itself is worth a star in the review. There was air-con in the room, on a 30+ degree Celsius day, you really appreciate this. The room was quite big, and the bathroom came with a bathtub.
While the people in the reception, where a bit 'cold', the people working in the bar, an restaurant where extremely friendly.
There is a nice green area around the hotel, where you can take a small walk, or just sit near the canal and watch the ships.
Not all was good though.
The price compared to the quality in the restaurant is not ok, either they should lower the prices or up the quality. You don't want dry scrambled eggs if you paid 13 euros for it, and you don't want your salmon drowned in teriyaki sauce to cover over that its a bit dry.
Its 'in the middle of nowhere', there is a 15 minute walk to the metro, and a 30-40 minute ride to downtown. There are no other restaurants in the area, no shops or even anything worth seeing, the only semi interesting thing is a nearby park.
Its relatively cheap though, and if you don't mind wasting about 2 hours a day on transport to and from the center, its a ok choice for a hotel.
