Stayed here for 2 nights back in May. We were a group of 4 adults and 2 young kids and stayed in the family room. The room is located at the highest floor and you have to go up through a flight of stairs to get to the room. The stairs are quite small and steep, so it might be a bit of a chore for some people.
The room itself is quite roomy for European standard. The furniture's a bit old and there's musty smell in the room. The kitchenette was basic but functional. The room, particularly the toilet, is a bit too dark for my liking. Otherwise, I'd say it's quite comfortable and totally met our expectations. The small children bed and play area is a nice touch. My daughter loved it!
Basic continental breakfast is provided. Selection is rather limited, but it's good enough. Staff were attentive, friendly and very helpful.
Location is great. Less than 5 minutes walk from the Centraal Station. You can also get trams and buses nearby. Lots of restaurants around the area. A grocery store is also just a few doors away.
Overall, I would definitely consider this hotel again when I come back to Amsterdam.
