We found Hotel Keizershof in the Rick Steves guidebook, and based on his review (and the reviews on this site) we gave it a shot. A word up front (something to be aware of): this is a cash only establishment. Fortunately it is inexpensive enough that this isn't a problem.
It is a family run hotel (more of a B&B, really), and everyone is friendly, kind, and courteous. The room was clean and spacious and the view of the city was pleasant. We stayed for more than five days, so we were given a discount on the room of (two bedroom en suite dropped from 115 euro a night to 100 euro a night). The breakfasts included fresh fruit, bread, and cheese, and a very tasty omelette each morning.
It is conveniently located next to a tram line (fourth stop from Centraal on the 16, 24, 25 trams) and a block from a grocery store. It is a 10 to 15 minute walk from the Rijksmusem and the Van Gogh Museum, and 5 to 10 minutes from the Leidesplein.
When I travel to Amsterdam in the future I will be sure to stay in the Hotel Keizershof
