The other reviewers have pretty much said it all. We stayed for a pre-cruise weekend. It is not really city center. I think if you are going to stay in Amsterdam, you should find a little hotel on one of the canals. I would rate this hotel somewhere between a 3 and a 4 because of that.
That said, it was clean and the room was nice. I did complain to the manager about the shower as well, it was not only slippery but it's also difficult to use. My husband burned himself trying to figure out how to use it and the manager didn't seem to care. (BTW you have to make sure the shower head is turned away from you and then turn the hot water handle toward you. Then immediately start regulating the hot water with the cold water - then you have to be very careful not to touch the pipe leading to the hot water as you fumble to adjust the water temp while taking the shower).
This hotel is out of the way for the customers but convenient for the Viking Cruise line since they can pick up everyone and transport them to the boat more easily. I was just disappointed because in Amsterdam, I would have liked to stay in a romantic hotel on a canal.
The food was also mediocre but the staff was very nice. You can also dine overlooking the water in the harbor. It's an awkward 15 min walk to the train and tram depot.
