This hotel was right in line with what we paid. The rate was very reasonable and the size is what you'd expect from a lot of cheaper European hotels: Small. I visited Amsterdam with my wife for three days/two nights and we weren't trying to spend much time in the hotel. The room had a (somewhat uncomfortable) bed, a private bathroom, a TV, a desk, and a window with not much of a view. They served a decent breakfast and the staff was very friendly through our stay. They also stored our bags for us while we went out the last day after we checked out. My only complaint would be that the bathroom was a little dirty. The toilet could have a little extra TLC on the last clean.
There was nothing overly spectacular about the location, being a mile or so away from most of the excitement. Quite honestly, though, that made us see even more of the city, b/c we likely would have not ventured into these parts and stayed closer to the hub of town had we not stayed at this place. I actually liked that aspect of it.
All in all a great place considering the price. It's not luxurious, but it is far from shady or dirty. Great value/great bang for your buck if you're just looking for a place to rest your head. I'd stay here again.
