When my husband and I travel we tend to go for boutique hotels or B&Bs. The most important aspects for us are a comfortable bed, good shower, great location and general ambience. This hotel ticked all the boxes. They scrimp on some things (no tea/coffee in bedrooms, limited hanging space for clothes, no bath) but in exchange you get a massive, super comfortable bed, films on demand, mood lighting, floor to ceiling windows and a fantastic rain shower.
It's really well-located, the tram stops right outside and will take you into the city centre, and it's a short walk from Zuid which is about 8 mins from the airport. In other words a perfect location. The food is available all night for when you get the inevitable muchies, and the communal areas are clean, slightly quirky, and really comfortable and light.
The staff were helpful without being intrusive - i.e. only there when you needed them, and other guests were friendly enough.
One thing I'd suggest though is if you're a girl, take a decent hair dryer (the ones they provide are the rubbish travel ones) and take an additional adaptor plug (they only provide one). I'd also suggest limiting your clothing to stuff you can fold and put away in the underbed storage (you get about 3 coat hangers).
