I stayed in the hotel with a friend for 4 nights (Sep 2009) and I paid 83€ per night/ two people. It was our first time in Amsterdam so we were looking for a cheap hotel just for "sleeping" that means that we didn't spend much time in it. The specific hotel almost met our expectations given Amsterdam standards (limited space, small rooms, narrow stairs, usually no elevators, high hotel rates etc).
More specifically, we stayed in a room on the ground floor next to the reception desk. The room was smaller than we thought (even if we were aware that it would be a small double room). There was a very small wardrobe in it, an office table, one chair, one armchair and a TV. The bathroom was not so small in comparison with the room.
Unfortunately, the room was no sunny and no sound- isolation. Every time the receptionist was talking with anyone or somebody entering the entrance we clearly heard him (most probably that happened the other way around too). In addition to this, the rest of the rooms were upstairs and we noticed that the stairs were very narrow and there was no elevator. The breakfast room was in -1 level so we had to use a few stairs ourselves and realised how tired it could be for all those staying in higher levels.
Besides these annoying matters, we acknowledge that this was the cheapest room we found in the area on the requested dates so we didn't demand 5* service and facilities. The hotel was generally clean, we had clean towels upon our arrival, hot water late at nights, soap in the bathroom, good breakfast with a nice variety (ham, cheese, jam, chocolate, fruits, bread, juices, water, coffee etc,), kind staff, internet (charged 5€ due 24:00), convenient location (5 minutes on foot from leidseplein station, 5 minutes on foot from a cruise-boat station adn heineken building, 5 minutes away on foot from Rijkmuseum, 20 minutes on foot from Dam square).
I would recommend it only to those who need just a cheap place to have a rest.
