Stayed here for 2 weeks as a base/central hub for exploring The Netherlands in general, not just Amsterdam. Prompt shuttle to/from the airport/trains made it very easy to get just about anywhere in the country for day trips. We could be in Amsterdam within 45 minutes of leaving the hotel; Rotterdam in less than 90 minutes.
Soundproofing in the rooms to block airplane noise is excellent. The room had two twin beds, great for friends traveling together. This was a slightly larger room than what I've had in other European cities in this price range. The room was consistently cleaned. Breakfast is higher priced than the McDonalds next door, but has a good selection of rolls, cold meats, yogurt, eggs, bacon. Reception and dining staff were always courteous and helpful. Check-in and check-out was promptly taken care of.
The only hiccups in 2 weeks was that there apparently was a convention/large meeting one day that seemed to have overwhelmed the breakfast staff - they had trouble keeping up. The same day we had an issue with no towels left by housekeeping. Both situations were quickly rectified.
The rooms are not soundproofed between floors, however. To sit on either of the two chairs in the room, you must drag them on the uncarpeted floor. This does cause some noise, and it was very noticeable when the occupants in the room above were moving their chairs.
I recommend this hotel to anyone who doesn't need/want to stay in the heart of Amsterdam itself.
