We stayed in the family room for 2 nights and found the hotel to be quiet but superbly placed for experiencing the Amsterdam we came to see - canals, sights, cafes etc without the more brash side you can enjoy elsewhere.
The staff were efficient and helpful from allowing us to check in early to allowing us to leave our bags on the final day so we didn't have to carry them round all day before our ferry left.
The breakfast was sufficient without being expansive. A selection of meats, breads and cheeses, cereals, juices, boiled eggs and tea and coffee. The breakfast room though was fantastic. Brightly decorated, it has an enviable position on a corner where two canals meet and is perfect for watching the miriad of city residents cycle to work whilst you sip your coffee.
You can walk to numerous local cafes and restaurants, Dam square is 5 minutes walk, Anne Frank's house about 10 and even Central Station is only 20 minutes. There are also nearby tram stops at Westermarkt and Elandsgracht. We found wandering around the canals and nine streets in the evening is a complete contrast to the busier streets around Dam square and other parts of Amsterdam and the hotel made a perfect base.
We selected it after reading reviews here (and after reading less complimentary reviews of other hotels) and can only say we weren't disappointed and would probably go back
