I got the single room that was in the basement. My first impression of the room was it smelled like mold but the shower and the sheets are clean. I tried to open the windows but the smell from the outside is worst from the inside so I kept it closed the whole time I was there. Although the room was bad the reception service was excellent. The staff are very professional and polite. you can ask them for tips on what to do. You can also rent a bike from the hotel for 12euros/24 hours. The location of the hotel was perfect. All the landmarks are within walking distance and if you have a bike even faster. I would recommend getting the I amsterdam card http://www.iamsterdam.com/en-GB/experience/deals/i-amsterdam-city-card . It gets you free entrance to the museums, access to trams, bus and ferries to Volendam and Marken its worth every penny. Breakfast is excellent and they have really good coffee in my opinion. While I was there although the building has a no smoking policy it did not stop some of the guest smoking on the hallway in the basement. The smell can seep through the gaps under the door and can fill the room and leave a bad smell. I sure do hope that they would install smoke detectors on the hallways as well. If you are getting the room at the basement I would suggest you get the one on the higher floors. I would stay in this hotel again but it wouldn't be my first choice anymore.
