We did a pre tour package and stayed 3 nights at the Nova Hotel. The hotel is very welcoming and fairly centrally located to all the Amsterdam "must sees".
We arrived before our room was ready and were able to secure our luggage in a locked room so we could start sight seeing right away.
Conveniently, there is a taxi stand 1 block away as well as a tram stop. We chose to walk to all venues/sites -but did cab it once because of rain. Great restaurants within walking distance.
The staff was very helpful and friendly. The rooms were a good size and beds comfy. Depending on where your room was located, steps may be involved! The morning buffet gave a nice variety of breakfast choices. The free wifi in the lobby was great-and even had a weak signal in the room. Had to get used to turning in room key before leaving hotel, but kind of nice having one less thing to worry about. Also had a 24 hour vending coffee machine and soda machine (with beer) in lobby. Room was cleaned/made up quickly after leaving for the day. Would definitely stay again! More
