Good 4 people room and they gave us a useful map with the landmarks in Amsterdam and bus/tram routs. Located a bit far from downtown or central station when you get hop on hop off bus or on foot you can go to the red light district.

Want to be in the midst of a multiethnic neighborhood with good shops and an open market and few tourists, yet only a short tram ride from the center of Amsterdam? This is a very well appointed hotel, modern, friendly, with an excellent buffet breakfast. We liked leaving the hustle bustle every day to come back to our neighborhood gem....

Located out of the centre but on excellent transport routes so it is easy to get into Amsterdam. Comfy beds...best I've slept in when staying at a hotel. Didn't have meals there but requests for extra tea/coffee never a problem. Lots of bakeries nearby to grab breakfast at cheaper cost than in the centre.

The hotel is quite decent. For Amsterdam where accommodation is at a premium, the hotel has good sized rooms. The décor is a bit old though, but functional. The staff is nice and helpful. The hotel has several departmental stores around it making it easy to get food and stuff. There is plenty of public transportation to get to anywhere...

hotel in a good location with a tram stop nearby. Only flaws are the lack of minibar in the rooms and the freeway noise The airport or the center can be reached by tram in 20 minutes Under the hotel there is a fully stocked Supermarket and a KFC's fast food

Notice that all the guests they had breakfast at the hotel most of them europeans , well they do not leave a tip for the servers that cleaned after them. Shame. Loved the room...
