A colleague booked this hotel for our overnight business trip but when I heard how much they paid (33 Euros from memory), I assumed the worst. However I was pleasantly surprised...the room was small but clean.
The most impressive part was the excellent bathroom (well, shower room), which looked brand new and something out a 4*.
Located right next to the train station, it is only 15 mins to Schiphol airport and not far from Amsterdam Central.
In the bar area, left in a bowl, you can obtain free Wifi access codes that give you a few days access (take one per device) - a great value add for a hotel of this price.
Although the snacks are limited, the reception staff recommended a local takeaway and arranged delivery.
The breakfast was great, with plenty of choices from cereal to yoghurt...to cheese...plenty of coffee on tap as well.
