We stayed here for 3 nights in January 2013.
Pros: Great, modern rooms. Comfy beds, nice pillows. Nice shower with good water pressure. Coffee and tea service in room. Warm, friendly welcome on arrival. Really nice restaurant in the hotel, with good food and fantastic service. Good, affordable room rate.
Cons: Slightly out of the way location. However, this wasn't a deal breaker. There was a very reliable bus directly outside the hotel that went straight into the city center within 10 minutes or so. Breakfast, if desired, was very expensive to add. (20 euros for breakfast crosses the line for me!). But, Amsterdam is an expensive city all around. We skipped it and picked something up in the city center in the morning.
Bottom line: Great place all around. Would stay again! A helpful note: if you need to reach this hotel from the airport, I might suggest skipping the taxi. Taxis are expensive, and this hotel is not near the airport at all. We took a train from the airport to the city center, then hopped on a bus that stopped right at the train station. This bus dropped us right in front of the hotel. Easy, and much more affordable. The hotel front desk can provide the bus and train numbers in detail.
