I have stayed here every time i have stayed in Amsterdam, since the late 1980s.
It is a no nonsense hotel with a good hearty breakfast and a convenient location for train station, and the city centre.
The hotel is, in itself, a museum of travellers past, and gives one an immediate sense of what Amsterdam life is all about. I love this place, and all my friends who have visited it still talk about it today.
Give it a try, but if you want luxury, try somewhere else.
P.S. My missus would not stay here.
