We stayed in the 3 star rooms. The room said non-smoking but smelled like old smoke but this can't be the hotel's fault because all the rooms down our corridor had 'no smoking' painting on the doors, so must have just been some inconsiderate guests.
The bed was exceptionally comfortable and the telly had BBC 1 and 2 which was nice when we were sleepy from days of cycling. As was the bath - big with plenty of hot water and the free toiletries smelled really nice :)
We couldn't hear any of the other guests when in our room, so had completely uninterrupted sleep and, because the hotel is out of town, there's no street noise from tourists.
The hotel is a 10 minute cycle (or 20 minute bus ride) from the city centre. Bikes are available for rent which we took full advantage of. The surroundings are really nice, right near Westerpark and the Jordaan, which in my opinion is much nicer than the stag-party infested Old Town, is even closer than the centre (perhaps a 10 minute walk?) and has good restaurants and cafés.
The staff at reception were very friendly and helpful, answering all the weird questions I threw at them and phoning in endless restaurant reservations for us! Oh, and the reception area is a lovely big open space with lots of art work.
Overall, Amsterdam is designed for cycling so the distance of the hotel from the city centre is not an issue and you get to escape the crowds and get a good night's sleep.
