Relatively inexpensive and still a decent stay in Amsterdam. The hotel location is good, easy to get around and there are sightseeing tour stops nearby. There are also fast food places, a drugstore and a pharmacy, ATM machines, breakfast bars/tearooms etc around it, which I've found convenient. The staff is very young and chatty.
The rooms are apparently newly furnished and very tasteful, the carpet hasn't gone icky yet, the bathroom was also really clean. We as a young-ish couple booked the deluxe room which is still quite small but not as bad as most non-luxury hotel rooms in this city. The upgrade only cost us about 10 euros extra per night and I personally thought it was worth it. There is an elevator and a vending machine in the lobby.
What I didn't like was the beds, they were fresh but the mattresses were too soft and kept sliding off the bed-frame (the mattress doesn't sit inside the frame but on top of it, so it moves to the side creating a huge gap between the two mattresses) the sheets keep coming off because there is nothing to hold them there and the pillows were awful, but I think almost all European hotels have awful pillows
