I have absolutely nothing bad to say about Amsterdam's delightful Hotel Brouwer. For starters, its location is ideal - a gorgeous, five-minute walk to Centraal Station, and close to countless cafes (also a few Red Light windows, if you're interested in that).
I stayed in the Mesdag Room for four nights - at 55 Euros a night, it seemed like a steal. The room was tiny, but it had everything - a comfortable bed, a phone, working shower, secure locks (not that you'll need it here), and a view.
The staff members at the hotel are very friendly and told me some of Amsterdam's history when I asked. Breakfast is served promptly. There isn't much variety but it's still filling, and there are many other cafes in the area to choose from if you'd like a change.
Be prepared for a steep climb up the hotel's staircase if you come in late at night.
I really don't think there would be a better hotel to stay at in all of Amsterdam.
