Good, simple, clean hotel with a cosy lounge area and little garden for coffee, breakfast. Nice 'cared for' feel to the place. Well maintained. Very friendly helpful staff.
Bedroom was spotless with a comfortable bed. The bedroom decor wasn't anything special but didn't cause offence either.
Location is great. Quiet street , easy walk to museums and leidesplein square (with its bars and shops) and vondelpark for a stroll if u want some grass (the green type that cows eat!). Tram stops are close. Amsterdam is very easy to get around.
Breakfast started at 7.30 (an early start is a must if you want some quiet time at the museums before they get too busy). Simple (cheese, ham, eggs, cereals) but tasty enough, nice juice and coffee.
The nearby Rijksmuseum was brilliant. Van Gogh was good but very busy (August). It seems you can easily buy museum tickets in many Amsterdam shops - for the same price or slightly discounted. Those buying at the museums were stood in long lines!
