This hotel is in a great location, right on the Warmoeestraat which is always buzzing. So do expect some noise late into the night (ear plugs are provided in rooms though!).
It is also a five minute walk from the central station, so in regards to transfers from the airport you couldnt pick a more perfect destination. Within 40 minutes of picking up our baggage we had settled into our room! We picked up the first train from the airport in to Amsterdam central. It only takes twenty minutes.
I believe this hotel is 75% more of a hostel based accomodation, with shared rooms and shared bathrooms. However, there are at least two rooms, situated right at the top of the building that are perfect for couples. They go quickly though! The room was more like a small apartment, with its own hallway, shower room, bathroom and bedroom. On the downside the lighting in the bedroom was very very dim.
If you have never been to Amsterdam before beware of the stairs, they are especially narrow and practically vertical. Without an elevator, carrying our 20Kg luggage up and down was a real nightmare! After a couple of days you get used to the stairs and will practically skip up and down.
Staff on arrival and exit were super friendly and welcoming. The room was cleaned every day. I would be giving this hotel top marks but my one complaint is quite important to me.
While the room was cleaned every day, our sheets were never clean. On arrival there were some funny stains in the corners. One night, when we returned to the room merry and with some chips we dropped some ketchup on the bed, noticeably. Again the sheets were not once changed in our stay. I can deal with the stain we made ourselves but the stains that were there on arrival were difficult to accept.
And finally fellow travellers, if you are here to dabble in the typical culture, there is an ash tray provided in rooms and you are allowed to smoke as many joints as you like before bed :)
