First, those stairs. Do not stay here if you have vertigo, any sort of infirmity or heavy luggage. They're not just steep (I'm used to Dutch stairs), they're precipitous.
And don't stay here if you like the bland amenities and en suite facilities of a corporate chain. But do stay here if you want a closer approximation of what life in a normal Dutch home is like, in a very old-fashioned - and I mean that in a good way - hotel.
The room was pleasantly furnished, and comes with its own basin. Worth noting that there's no TV in the room. No street noise, but then I was up in the eaves with the world's tiniest window (your own personal Anne Frank experience). Breakfast was fine, and the breakfast room is lovely.
The other boon of this hotel is the location: trams from Central Station (line 2 and 5) and the bus to/from Schiphol (line 197) stop right outside the door, it's a stone throw from the major museums (Rijksmuseum, Van Gogh and Stedelijk) yet away from the tourist bustle (although the tourist hell of Leiseplein is a short stroll away).
