There are plusses and minuses for this hotel. The cleaning and maid service is problematic. They always left some mess. I had broken glass in one corner of the room all 5 days. They never provided new coffee, which was a real problem since I had jetlag, and was waking up early each morning. The first time I noticed, I called to reception, but they said they couldn't bring any up at that hour. The rooms are small, but nicely decorates. On the plus side, the hotel is decorated in a very hip, contemporary fashion. Breakfasts were very good (don't eat dinner there). The staff are generally very accomodating. The hotel is a bit outside most of what you want to see in Amsterdam - could be a plus or minus.
