Seriously, the bed IS fantastic!! LOVE the bed. Best sleep ever, which was sorely needed for those long days and nights out in Amsterdam.
Very cool hotel experience with the cool pod like rooms with the pod shower and the pod toilet - all of which, very clean. Also watched a bunch of free movies from a pretty extensive list of movies late at night. Huge selection of tv channels (english or otherwise). Moodpad was kind of fun to play around, with the color lights, but the idea gets old pretty quickly. Still, it does the job of being able to control everything in the room pretty much from one control. Free wifi in the rooms, as well as the free computers in the lobby when I needed to print things out. Staff was helpful but not in your face, and the lobby has all sorts of cool designer chairs and furniture and a lot of designer books should you ever get bored in Amsterdam (which is doubtful, but just in case, I guess!)
Location is a bit further away, but very easy access to the tram or the bus or the metro (or if you rent a bike, you could bike it). But also good, because it's pretty quiet as well.
For the price it's pretty great compared with some other hotels in Amsterdam that may be closer to the city centre, but would be much smaller. And nothing beats that huge bed.
All in all, exactly what it appears to be - a very cool designy looking hotel. So, not for those who are looking for a homey personal hotel experience, because it is rather impersonal, but a great comfortable hotel otherwise.
One con: the Moodpad seems to need constant recharging. I leave it out for 10 minutes, it already is a little low on battery and has trouble connecting to the room, so I need to return it to the dock to use it. Quite annoying when you're using it as a remote for the TV and having to use it from the dock.
