I stayed in this hotel for three nights as part of a short holiday in the Netherlands. I got the hotel through a Priceline deal and so have nothing to complain about in terms of value for money.
The negatives: the rooms were a little bit dated and I suspect this is why a lot of people give the hotel poor reviews. The decor could be upgraded along with some of the room equipment such as the TV but aside from that the room I had was very large, always spotlessly clean, quiet and comfortable.
The positives: the staff were all very helpful and friendly, the service in the restaurant was very good. The concierge gave the impression that nothing was too much trouble for them and the staff behind reception helped out in a number of ways. Even the housekeeping staff that I met were friendly and made me feel welcome in the hotel.
The hotel is in an excellent location for exploring Amsterdam, literally a two minute walk to Centraal station and an easy stroll away from many of the attractions. It is also just off the red light district so if you want to see that area nothing could be simpler. The red light district is well worth exploring to find some decent places to eat.
The most important thing to remember when checking into this hotel is to ask for a quiet room. I and my friends did that and we had no complaints about noise (except for the bells from Sint-Nicolaaskerk). This means that you might not have a great view - my room looked onto another part of the hotel, but that was a small price to pay for a quiet night.
Overall I was very pleased with this hotel, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone else and would definitely stay there again
