I booked this hotel using points through United Mileage Plus and, upon arrival, was given a room on the 5th floor with a view of the air con unit and fire escape/alley. The room was extremely dark and dated. It's disappointing when using points/miles to book and getting the least desirable room in the place. Worse, the bathroom was not clean, and the trashcans not emptied from the previous lodgers. When I complained, the nice woman at the reception upgraded me to a suite on the sixth floor with a huge balcony overlooking Amstel. While this was a wonderfully kind gesture, there were some similarities to the first room: the lighting was poor; the bed linens and towels were of poor quality; bathroom was dated (though shower nice); and the room, overall, had a cheap feel to it.
Overall, this is a three-star hotel with some wrinkles to iron out in terms of facility and amenities. Location is great - just outside the crazy Centrum near the Vondelpark, museums, and University, but close enough to the center for easy access to Centraal Station and the touristy core. Would likely not stay again until after a refurbishment.
