Located a little outside of the 'city centre', but if you like walking on city trips, it is also possible to walk to Museumplein and Leidseplein. Otherwise the number 2 tram provides an easy, regular service almost straight to the door. Vondelpark is only two streets over, so if you are visiting in summer it's the perfect place to have a picnic and just chill out in the middle of the city.
There is a small supermarket nearby, and an honesty bar to get cold drinks/snacks.
Although there are obviously changes going on in the hotel, the staff were all friendly and helpful, and the overall atmosphere is very friendly cozy. There are a lot of comments on the steepness of the stairs, but I didn't find them all that bad - in fact, by typical Amsterdam standards they are very generous. Staff were also available to help carry luggage which was a nice touch. We reported a fault with the bathroom lock in one room, and although the staff were not able to fix it themselves, they kept us updated on the progress and also provided tea/coffee making facilities on request and made sure we had everything we needed.
I stayed in a single room, and although small, everything was clean and comfortable for a two night stay. The bed was rather soft so may not be to everyones taste, but was perfect for me.
