2 blokes on a jolly for 2 nights, in Amsterdam without the wives....no not what you think! We were here for a gig at the Paradiso Club, and this hotel was a stone's throw away. All we wanted was a single bed each, a clean room with a bathroom big enough to move around in, a decent breakfast and pleasant conversation with the hotel staff. We got them all! No it's not 5 star, maybe a little basic, and I probably wouldn't stay here with my wife (though there were families there), but it was very clean, had a hot shower (which some 4/5 * hotels don't), good breakfast and very friendly and helpful staff.
Only two negatives were the stairs, they are very steep and probably wouldn't pass building regs in the UK, but as we were on the 3rd floor, it kept us fit and ensured we didn't drink too much! The other was the hotel opposite was being re-designed and the building site seemed to open at 6am, but obviously not a long-term issue.
Given that Amsterdam is the most expensive place I've ever visited, this hotel was a bargain!
