My friend and I had an excellent 4 night stay in February at this lovely hotel. Located right by the main square, Leidesplein, you are mere minutes away from the museums and by all the trams and bus.
Like most hotels in Amsterdam, the rooms are small and narrow but hey, who cares when you'll be spending most of your times walking around and eating pancakes! My friend has a bad back and carried heavy luggage so I was able to email them in advance requesting a room on the lower floor, which they gave us no problem. Our room was facing the street so it was loud at night over the weekend and there was a bit of a draft. It was not an issue for me but if you like it quiet, perhaps ask for a room towards the back?
Even though breakfast is included, my friend and I opted to eat out most of the mornings. However, the one day we did take advantage, the options are simple but great. Croissants, cereal, toast (3 types of bread available), different spreads, cheese and meats.
Between 4pm-5pm, they offer free poffertjes (small pancake puffs) at the front desk!
The 197 takes you to/from Schipol in 30mns and a train to Centraal Station is only about a 10mn ride.
Tip: there's a great Belgian bar, De Zotte, located right around the corner!
