We took a three-night stay in a double room at this excellent hotel in late January 2006 and found it to be totally different to the three reviews already posted.
It was very good value for money, adjacent to the No. 2 tram route which gets you to and from the centre of Amsterdam briskly, cheaply and safely. In fact, so conveniently was it situated that we never actually took the tram to the city centre in the mornings, but only used it for travelling back at night!
Travellers who must have a lift/elevator should perhaps not go there if using a minimal amount of effort is a problem, although we had to climb two sets of stairs to our room and only found the turn at the top of the second flight of stairs a bit of a challenge with narrow steps, but overseas visitors might like to consider that the traditional narrow but tall configuration of Dutch buildings makes this necessary. The able-bodied should NOT find it a challenge.
The bed was fine, as was the cleanliness of the room, the bathroom, and the breakfast area. The proprietors were friendly, and we shall certainly be going back there again, not least because the standard of clientele (at least when we were there) meant that there was no noise during the night, which is worth a lot!
