OK, so Hotel Nadia is not the hotel you'll be bragging on about with your friends. It's not anything that I'd recommend in my home country (Sweden), and the stairs (as mentioned in almost all reviews) are a challenge (any person with leg problems or being up in the ages should seriously consider this before booking). Also, it's not the most quiet hotel since sound isolation doesn't work that good...
But apart from that? Nice staff (especially the young girl in the reception), decent breakfast, very central and with a great price. And with great price I mean great price for central Amsterdam. If that price would have been in for example Stockholm, and for that hotel, I'd not have believed my eyes. But this was it, and maybe it was due to the fact that we traveled during the worst of the volcano crisis in April in Europe.
Rooms are tiny, yes, but as long as you're OK with not having a big bathroom and bumping into your room mate once in a while, it works.
We didn't encounter any bed bugs, and the shower was actually having a cabinet, so no water on the toilet or "standing in the toilet" like other reviews. As for sleep quality, church bells kinda messed that up a bit, but just a bit.
In general, would I recommend it? Definitely.
A tip; there seems to be a dozen other hotels like Hotel Nadia on the same street, located very close to Hotel Nadia. If Nadia is fully booked, Google Map it and check out the other hotels on the same street nearby. I have no idea about their quality, but on the outside they looked to be the same as Hotel Nadia.
