If you're after a reasonable hotel 5 minutes walk from Central Station and the centre of Amsterdam then this is a good choice. The rooms are comfortable, the shower works well and there are plenty of TV channels in each language; so all the key points are covered. They also offer free Wi-fi which is good, although the speed is fairly poor, so anything more than checking facebook and your emails is going to be frustrating. (They have assured me that they're updating their provider).
The staff are fine, but their attention seems to be inconsistent; sometimes you'll get a warm welcome, other times they'll walk past without an acknowledgement. Their reception staff are efficient but not very friendly.
NOTE: There seems to be two parts to this hotel, the old part and the new part. The fancy sleek photos you can see in the reviews are clearly in the new part, which was somewhere other than my room. My room had a floor that sloped, curtains that seemed as if they'd fall off if you did anything outrageous (like close them) and the old, worn-out carpet had iron burns on it.
However, all these things considered, great location, charming building and reasonably good value. I'd use it again but I'd look around carefully first.
Breakfast was your typical buffet, which was ok but, in my opinion, could have had a wider range; note to chef: melon is not the only fruit.
