Hotel is situated about a 15 min tram ride from the centre and the trams run all the time so good location (worth getting a 24hr/48hr ticket). From the outside it is a huge building but looks very nice, it actually used to be a hospital years ago! Check in was quick and easy although you have to pay an extra 'deposit' which is refunded upon check out.
Throughout the hotel it was very brightly decorated with red wallpaper and carpets collaged with the Amsterdam XXX letters. The rooms are also well decorated fitting with the Amsterdam styling, always kept very clean and tidy. There was even a red-filter light in the corner to give a romantic touch in the evenings. Had no problems sleeping found the beds comfy and rooms quiet.
Only negative we found in the room was the bathroom - the swinging bathroom door (just to the left of the bed) was translucent glass so you can kind of see through and there was also a mirror with 2 windows from the bedroom into the bathroom so unless you and your companion(s) are very close and comfortable with one another privacy could be an issue!
