I stayed here with my partner for 3 nights, just for a short break in Amsterdam. I chose this hotel as it was one of the only ones available that had en-suite bathrooms - many in the 300-500 euro range have shared bathrooms.
We booked a basic room, which was perfect for us as we were getting up reasonably early and staying out all day, but if we had been planning to spend longer in Amsterdam, I probably would have booked a more expensive room, as the basic one was a little bit dark! It really could have done with some extra lighting in there, but that aside, the bed was comfortable, we got clean towels every day and the shower was particularly good! It was quiet at night, and felt very private. They also have a resident cat called Bink, who took the opportunity to bound into our room and have a look around (probably trying to sniff out our stroopwaffels!) as we were leaving one day, so if you are allergic cats... maybe not the best choice of hotel.
The location is good - there is normally a tram stop right outside the hotel, but because of roadworks elsewhere in the city, there is currently a temporary diversion, so we had to walk 3 minutes down the road to catch the tram. You could easily walk the distance to the city centre anyway - it took about 20/25 minutes (at quite a slow pace) to walk to the Red Light District. The hotel is also very close to the Artis zoo, a botanical garden, and an outdoor play area, so great if you have children with you.
There is free wifi in this hotel, which I tried to access from the room on my mobile phone, but it was so slow, I gave up.
The staff were very friendly and helpful, and there was always someone around when we needed them. The door was only locked at night on one occasion - we just rang the bell and someone was there straight away.
There was a whole stand of discount vouchers and leaflets, for Amsterdam's main attractions, in the hallway, so if you haven't already booked anything, it could give you some ideas.
The breakfast was 10 euros, which we didn't sample, so I cannot comment on that, but there were some cheaper and delicious options nearby, such as "Bagels and Beans".
Overall, we had a lovely comfortable stay, and I would stay here again for a similar trip. If I had more money, I would go for one of the luxury rooms, as the basic one was not well lit, but this had minimal impact on our overall experience.
