If you want a good quality and value close to Amsterdam city centre, then look no further thatn the Westcord Art Hotel. Staff are polite and provide excellent service, rooms are clean and comfortable and the restaurant serves good food.

The hotel is about a 10 min bus ride to the city centre, but you will save around 50 euros per night on a similar quality hotel.

All in all a great value hotel!

I stayed at this hotel 3 years ago when it was run by another hotel group and it was faultless. Upon my return we were off to a disappointing start when upon my 18:00 arrival I was told my rooms (3 of them) weren't ready. Check in is from 14:00 so I wasn't happy with this. Me and my travelling party went and got a drink at the bar outside an waited around 1 hour to 90 minutes for our rooms. By this time it was about 19:00. The hotel is a 15-20 minute walk to central station. 5 minutes on a bicycle, in a cab or on the local bus which runs every 10-15 minutes. Cabs will charge €15 to take you into town (about 1.5 miles) and on an evening expect to pay €15 to return or €5 per head if more than 3 are getting on a cab.

The hotel is cleen with good facilities that you would expect from a 4 or 4*+ hotel.

We have got the room booked well in advance (2 months) so the price was at an acceptable level. So if you want the value for money, I suggest to that as well.
The hotel is located approx 10mins bus drive from Central station. You can either take bus 22 or 48. I suggest 48 since it has a stop just in front of the hotel (during working days goes every 10mins and Sunday 15mins).
We have spent there night only so cannot really comment on the services (we didn't take even the breakfast since it costs about 15EUR/person - it's a bit too much, isn't it?). Nevertheless, the room is big enough, bathroom with a bathtub with shower. After a long time I've seen such a full minibar (well surprised ;-). Beds are a bit soft, but I slept well due to tiredness without any backpain ;-)
So if you find the hotels in the centre too loud, expensive, or are full and you do not mind to travel a bit by bus (10mins is not much) this hotel is a good option.

We just stayed there for 6 nights in mid May and were very impressed with the cleanliness, the services and the value for money this hotel provides. The hotel staffs were friendly, caring, unpretentious, yet kept your privacy in mind. The bathroom was well laid out and very convenient to use with modern designs and newer facilities. The hotel is located in a less crowded part of the city with easy access to the Central Station by Bus # 22 and 48. Overall, it's amazing to find a hotel in Amsterdam with these much to offer and in such a reasonable price range.

Pros:
Good size of the room, free safety box, free wi-fi with good sigal for check e-mail, good bed, good soundproof from outside / inside the building, except the below over the braserie. Fast & easy check-in & check-out. In the front of the hotel you have the bus station no. 48, to/from Centraal Station ( 30 min. including the wait time), or to the Amsterdam Sloterdijk ( an secondary train station ), good for Schiphol Airport or Haarlem.

Cons:
No breakfast for 105 eur/double - but to be honest, Amsterdam is an expensive location, I searched trough many hotels. We stayed on the first floor, over the Braserie and I heard on every night noises from below, moved chairs & stuff, around 3:00h a.m. The tv is an old 21" CRT, not an modern LCD. Not light near safety-box, is hard to see anything inside the box.

All in all I recommend this hotel. But for the Art, go to the museums, the city is plenty of them :).

Transport - This hotel was really easy to get to. 2 stop by train from the airport plus a 10min bus ride. The bus stops just outside the hotel. It is also about 10 mins by bus from Central Amsterdam.

Its definitely clean and beds are extremely comfy. Could do with a stronger shower but nothing to complain about.

The only negative was the drunk ppl who came back in the middle of the night and went to the wrong door. It would help if an extra latch/peep hole was put in place.

Its a great stay from the start.
