Stayed here last week for 2 nights to a hotel i found easily enough with directions on my first visit to amsterdam, it's more a gay friendly hotel as i noticed females were staying.
However the receptionist was kind in giving me maps and guides and advice.
Hotel is very very clean and the shower is fine. TV is excellent in room with BBC channels.
Wifi connection is fine.
Only minus points are that it is a 20 mins walk from the main gay areas however it is right by club church, or you can get a tram down and the staircases are very narrow, steep and hard with luggage especially coming down.
I would stay here again, although i would prefer sumwhere more central
