The Hotel Sipermann is a simple and functional hotel, centrally located within a five-minute walk from the tram and bus stations Leidseplein. I was in town on business for a few days and needed a retreat away from the louder crowds, who come to Amsterdam to let loose - but at a reasonable price. The Sipermann is just that: A no-frills, uncomplicated, impeccably clean and very reasonably priced accommodation, but still located in-midst of the city. It's also right around the corner from the beautiful Vodelpark.
One thing that may be an issue for guests at this hotel is the combination of a steep stairwell and lack of an elevator. This is not a fault of the hotel itself, but characteristic of traditional architecture in Amsterdam per se. I stayed on the top floor and consequently hauled my luggage up (and down) three flights of stairs - but this is also the case in many other narrow (read traditional) buildings in this city, hotels and private homes alike. The rooms at the Sipermann are relatively small, so they are better suited for people who spend less time indoors and more time on the town.
Because the wi-fi did not reach to the 3rd/top floor, I was provided with an ethernet cable upon checking in. There's no wake-up service, so bring a reliable alarm clock. There is a 20 Euro cash deposit required for the house/room key, which you will get back upon checking out and a 7% surcharge for paying with cards.
