As with every hotel I have stayed in before in this great city, the stairs are very steep. This is not a criticism as I like to stay in authentic places when I stay away. If you like grand, globally synchronised decor on a commercial scale this is not the place for you, if you like clean, comfortable authenticity then the Nadia should be top of your list. Space is well utilised as our double room was a cosy canal view room with a desk down one side and a TV on a higher shelf, along with the usual tea/coffee and kettle, fridge and safe, we were pretty much provided with everything we needed. The en suite shower and toilet were basic but clean, modern enough and served their purpose. My one criticism would be the angle of the not very powerful shower. An inch or two lower would make it far easier to shower but saying that it didn't cause enough of an issue that you couldn't actually shower, I would NOT let this deter me from staying at this hotel again.
The staff are some of the friendliest and helpful I have ever encountered, everytime I asked for a cold can of coke from the fridge they said "no charge, it's no charge coke day!!"
The breakfast was a sufficient continental breakfast consisting of croissant, toast and rolls of different varieties, along with a choice of jams. I looked forward to sitting in the breakfast room each morning looking out across the canal or loosing myself in the scenic dvd played on the flatscreen whilst you eat.
To conclude, the Nadia provides at taste of Amsterdam from a comfortable, clean and cosy base where you are well looked after. The bonus being you are only 3/4 minutes walk from Dam square!
