If to think positive, it's ok. The location is ok, it's not the center, but the bus/trams are very close. A taxi costs smth from 13 to 25 euro ( depending on number of people and the honesty of the deiver ) :) there is a market right around the corner and the room are ok.
If to be critical: it's not 4 stars as you expect it to be in Europe. Yes, for China it is a good 4-stars hotel. (as far as i understood, it has been built by a Chinese company). The breakfast is average and the choise is very simple and limited. The rooms are rather noisy ( i can hear some singing, someone's tv on and absolutely everything what's happening in the corridor.
No extra's in the hotel (may be you don't need any if you are in Amsterdam) but this is what our clients who also stayed here were missing. (like billiards or massage or whatever else it might be).
The reception is not very interested indeed, though not unfriendly.
My room was also not cleaned very well. Also it's a bit Smelly. And the airco in the room is not very efficient.
