Bailed out of this place after one night, despite having booked and paid in advance for four. My single room with a narrow twin bed was only the width of the window -- stretching both my arms let me easily touch both walls. But I couldn't open the floor-to-ceiling window during a heat wave without losing privacy and maybe risking falling out! Also, the room had an odor -- a human smell? A bad disinfectant? I couldn't tell. Don't mind shared toilet and shower, but I do mind if they are not pleasant or properly cleaned -- found a bandage obviously several days old on a shelf in the shower. To top it off, had a dispute with the staff over payment, which they blamed on my booking agent of many years [I still use one, sometimes]. On the upside, the fire alarm went off only once during the night I stayed. Also on the upside -- this hotel has a great location, in a residential area yet still near the central train station and tourist spots. The hotel is proving the bad part of my first trip to Amsterdam -- the city itself is a terrific place to visit.
