It was important to get a central hotel for my elderly parents and this hotel, approx 200 metres from the station fitted the bill. By booking 3 months in advance we kept the price tolerably high (there is no such thing as a cheap hotel in Amsterdam).
The building itself is not going to win any architectural prizes externally but inside is another matter with great use of light. The Skylounge on the 11th floor gave stunning views of the city ( and prices to match those heights). We had a wonderful hour nursing a coffee looking at the city go round.
Good size rooms- I have stayed in many a converted cupboard in this town over the years. The empty fridges were appreciated- they are filled on request but are for your use otherwise. Beds were very comfortable. Excellent shower- no bath though. Good staff ( wearing horrible uniforms). Our 5th floor view was over the station and the Ij- great viewing through the wall to ceiling windows. Soundproofing good not perfect so some railway noise was noted. The air was very dry in the building so sleep could have been better and I woke up several times feeling very dehydrated ( no it wasn't what I had had beforehand).
Breakfast good but EUR 25 buffet was such you may wish to go elsewhere- quality however very high.
