My fiancee and I stayed here during our visit to Amsterdam at Christmas.
The Hotel itself is very nice and welcoming and checking in was no problem at all, they even give you free maps of the city with attractions marked on it.
The room was nice a clean with a very comfy bed, like other reviews the tinted glass between the actual bathroom and the bedroom is very see-through, not a problem for us but if this was perhaps a first trip away with a partner and you aren't that comfortable then it might be a problem!
The hotel is away from the hustle and bustle of the city centre but is only 20 minutes walk to Dam square or you can jump the trams which has stops just across the canal.
When checking out the staff took our bags so that we could still explore the city as our flight wasn't until later that day.
