I'm a frequent visitor to Amsterdam and have stayed in a fair few hotels.
I stayed her last week for my hen trip with a few friends.
The hotel is very easy to find and is located perfectly, 5mins walk from central station and 2mins from Dam Square/Damrak and it is on a main tram route.
Check in was quick and pleasant. It's worth noting that as standard for Amsterdam they take a €50 expense/damage deposit per room at check in which is refunded at check out. City tax for out trip was €10.50 each room for 2 nights payable in check out.
There is a small refreshments shop in reception where you can buy soft drinks, beer, crisps and chocolate which is extremely handy when you come in from a night out a bit peckish.
The rooms were funky. Tastefully decorated with a nice desk area/ TV and everything was spotless. Small but decent size for Amsterdam Central. As other travellers have noted, the glass bathroom can be a bit of an issue. It wouldn't be an issue at all if I was with my partner. However, when you're sharing a room with a friend and constantly have friends calling in to your room, you may have a problem. It's worth noting also that deluxe twin/double rooms are the same thing and you cannot move the beds apart, but they do have separate duvets.
The kettle and tea/coffee supplies are hidden away in the filing cabinet drawer and the safe is inside the wardrobe- both are easy to use. The shower is lovely although the tray does start to fill up so be careful.
Overall this a fab hotel for Amsterdam central and I will be returning if the price stays reasonable.
