I haven't stayed in Hotel Brian for a while, but was pleasantly surprised. I booked it because it was cheaper than any of the other 1* or 2* budget hotels with private rooms in Amsterdamage. It has new owners, who have made-over the place considerably with new carpets and beds. The room was pretty basic, with a bed and sink, and shared showers and toilets on each floor. Breakfast was included, only I never woke up in time. No lock-in, unlike some of the crappy hostels in 'Dam.
The main plus point for me was that the sheets / duvet and towels were clean, and there were NO bed-bugs or mice (unlike the Utopia or Hotel Jimmy, where I stayed the last couple of times I was Amsterdamned).
Good points: Cheap rates, friendly staff, good central location (on Singel canal), clean / tidy. Room could do with a TV though! Will definitely come here again next time I crash and burn in Amsterdamnation.
