We stayed here because of a great deal with Expedia, and pre-arranged to have breakfast for all 4 nights (saving E 4.50 a day each). I don't agree with another of the reviews which said the breakfast was awful, as we found it delicious, fresh and literally all you could eat. Get stuck in, we weren't hungry until the afternoon! The room was a good size for Amsterdam - I have paid about the same for a tiny, loud double in a tatty hotel 200 metres away - and the bathroom and furnishings were of nice quality. The staff were courteous, friendly and professional. Despite being extensively modernised the hotel still retains a lot of charm, having been converted from townhouses.
The hotel is in a great location for the Museum Quarter (or fancy brand shops if that's your bag) with the Van Gogh and Rijksmuseums within a couple of minutes walk. The trams from Centraal Station also stop very close by. It didn't take us long to walk into Old Centre, de Pijp or even closer to Leidseplein for emergency supplies.
If you want a lovely trip for a sunny day, take the 170 bus from by the Concertgebouw to the Amsterdamse Bos, a massive park south of the centre where you can hire a Dutch bike for about a tenner a day and cycle merrily around a lovely landscape, stopping for coma-inducing pancakes in the hidden cafe.
Also if you're a film buff, check out the fantastic Kriterion cinema on Roetersstraat.
