I stayed at what was then the Hotel Granada in March 2011, with a group of friends. I'd go so far as to say it was the worst accommodation I've ever experienced. The room was hideously unclean, with stained and probably unwashed bedding, what appeared to be blood on the wall and a ripped piece of cloth masquerading as a curtain on the very dirty window.
The showering facilities were an absolute joke. The one "shower" was in what was clearly once a small cupboard about 3ft by 3ft big, with a motion-sensitive light that went off every 2 minutes plunging you into complete darkness mid-shower. There was nowhere to put your fresh clothes so i literally wrapped them up in a bin liner so they'd stay somewhat dry & threw them on the second i was done. It's was ridiculous!
The only good thing about this place was the location. Well placed within Amsterdam and close to many amenities. The Bourbon Street music club across the street was also fantastic and a great place to hang out at until we absolutely had to go back to the room.
All in all, never again!
