Stayed three nights in this charming hotel, just steps away from the Museumplein containing the Rijskmuseum, Van Gogh Museum, Modern Art Museum, etc. (I took a chance after reading the other reviews. This trip was a birthday present for my husband so I really wanted the hotel to be acceptable. Wasn't looking for fancy or luxe.) We arrived mid-day after taking the #197 bus for 5 euros from the airport, but the room was available, so we checked in early. (The information desk at the airport told us where to get off - Hobbesmanstraat, I think its called) Our room was modern, airy, light, and clean with a huge arched window that opens facing the quiet street. Beds were comfortable, bathroom was clean and stocked with amenities, with a big deep tub. Lots of good food options nearby, including a bakery, cafe and even a supermarket. The bus and tram stops very close by and the hotel has bikes, although we walked just about everywhere -- the Jordaan, Nine Streets, even down to the central station area and west to the market. We didn't eat at the bar in the hotel, but it seemed like a nice space.) Old Amsterdam is a magical city and the hotel was really just perfect.
Closet space is on the small side, but really no big deal. Depending on where you are used to staying, you might find the room on the small side, but it was a good size for any urban city. Wi-fi worked with no problem, as did the hair dryer in the bathroom and the desk lent us an adapter to charge electronics. I would recommend this hotel unreservedly and would definitely stay here again.
