Stayed for 3 nights, about what you would expect for the price and the location is spot on, 5 minutes from the train station and about 10 minutes from the weird and wonderful stuff. If you're a smoker and aren't worried about where you sleep this is ideal.
Your mostly paying for the location here it's very easy to get too from dam station and not too far away from where you want to be. I wouldn't bring the misses here she'd ring my neck!!! the room was dirty. when we arrived our room was full of rubbish and dirty towels which we put in the hall way and they was there for another 2 days. We had no clean towels, house keeping was none existent the sheets had unsavory stains on them that you'd forgotten about when you went to bed but was rudely reminded of in the morning. The shower was impossible it was freezing cold at 1st, we managed to get the temperature up then it wouldn't go any lower then scolding hot lol. But all that being said for a few lads away in the dam for a few nights who cares what the hotel looked like it did us good for a place to get our heads down on a night and that's all the matters.
Room wasn't great although didn't expect much after reading some of the reviews. It may have just been some of the rooms though as we saw a room on our floor that looked five times better. So good it looked like a completely different hotel, It even had a view. Our view from our only window was pipes and a wall, barely any sunlight shining in and obviously that made the room pretty dark and dingy The bathroom was always cold as well as the heater did not work. Never the less the location was great, within walking distance to everything and we didn't really plan to be in the room much anyway. The staff who run the restaurant were all nice and friendly too. "Dream, Imagine, Believe" is a picture that is up in every room it seems and well... that's pretty much what we had to do. Saying this i would definitely go back to Amsterdam, had such a good time. If i were staying here again id probably try and avoid getting the room that sleeps four.
Noisy and cold room, with a permanent bad smell from the bathroom's pipes, we thought. Noisy because the windows were very big, leading to the main road with a lot of traffic and noisy partywanderers at night. Besides, they didn't close well and that's the same reason why it was cold. However, there was heating in the room, but it was never on. Apart from that, the Internet connection was really poor and, although the breakfast was quite strong, they weren't very flexible when suggesting to change some of the salty stuff for pastry. Tha staff was nice, but not really able to cope with the previous things. And the only reason to be worth staying, the excellent location, close to all the touristic attractions by foot, and 5 minutes from Centraal Station.
