My first time in Amsterdam after many years and the hotel prices in the city are not for the faint hearted. I booked this hotel many months in advance for a three night stay (pre-paid), the check-in was excellent and extremely friendly. The hotel has two buildings as such with different lifts taking you to a certain part of the hotel (they are not linked). My building was the one with the lift past the reception area (the other lift is adjacent to the entrance). Good room, privilege non-smoking. Size was not the greatest but this is Amsterdam and I have seen smaller. Well decorated, clean, free WiFi, decent sized bathroom, it did the job for three nights. I never took breakfast or had meals at this hotel, I did use the bar which was fine and normal hotel prices.
The Metro is about 10 minute walk away, it's two Metros to Amsterdam Central (the change is seamless, you walk across from one side of the platform to the other). Else there is a 10 minute walk the other way over the bridge to take the tram 25, which takes about 25-30 minutes to Amsterdam Central. For the night owls, there is also a night bus from the city which stops next to the Metro station (however confusingly the bus stop is not called by the name of the Metro stop). The immediate location was a business area, nothing to see, but did not bother me in the slightest.
I would return to the hotel in the future when visiting Amsterdam.
