In a multicultural suburb of Amsterdam, where many students live. There are several tram and bus connections to the center of Amsterdam. I'd recommend you buy an "OV-Chipkaart" at the Centraal Station. There are one's available for 1, 2, 3, 4, etc. days. They're really worth it and make your stay comfortable. From Central Station take bus 22 to the hotel (stop: Bos en Lommerplein). To The city center you can take Tram 12.
The Station Sloterdijk is right near the hotel - take Bus 15 there. From the train station you can visit wonderful Dutch cities like Haarlem, Leiden, Den Haag, Utrecht, Gouda.
The Hotel is a 4 star hotel. The rooms are clean, comfortable. The bathrooms are modern. Breakfast is plenty. The lobby is also modern and clean.
The Hotel is across the highway, but you don't really notice it. Of course the view from the room isn't that beautiful, but it didn't disturb us during our stay, as we anyways spent all day travelling around.
Ask the reception for a room in a floor that you prefer (we preferred a medium high floor, so we got a room on the 4th floor).
Behind the hotel is the "Bos en Lommerplein" with a market in the morning and some clothes shops. Around the corner you will find two supermarkets (one being the famous "Albert Hijn").
All in all, the stay at this hotel was excellent.
*If you visit Amsterdam, don't miss the "Albert Cuyp Market" in the Oud-Zuid district. It's a trendy area and on the market you will be overwhelmed buy all the things to buy and see!
