Our travel agent booked us into this hotel for our Amsterdam stay after a 2 week river cruise.
Hotel is a bit dated, the front desk a bit too busy to help, and the bed sagging badly.
The breakfast buffet is good and there is free wi-fi.
The hotel is about 20 minute plus tram or bus ride from the city centre so be prepared to get to know the transit system to get around.
Overall, I think there are better choices for staying in Amsterdam as a tourist unless you have a preference for that vicinity.
