We booked this property through tripadvisor for a 3 day/2 night city break. The deal inlcuded a free upgrade to a deluxe room and was therefore great value. The property is unusual, charming and old worldly - we have not stayed in a similar property before. The reception area has an attached library and bar. There is free coffe/tea and flavored water in the lounge which makes up the absence of these facilities in the room (free bottled water is provided in the room).
The room was a a bit on the smaller side but never the less beautiful. We had a jacuzzi in our bathroom which was quite large. The service was highly efficient, friendly and understated. The breakfasts were nice with a varied choice (pre-booking at the time of reservation enables a 5 euro discount PP). Otherwise it costs 18 euros PP and you may prefer visiting one fo the numerous cafes/delis for your breakfast.
The hotel is situated in a beautiful location in Dam Square and is only about 20 minutes by walks from central station. All the major sights are within walking distances (taxis are expensive).
An unusual, charming and surprising hotel. Definitely worth considering when visiting Amsterdam
