We stayed here for one night on a recent visit to the Netherlands. The hotel is well-located, just five minutes from the station, and about the same from Dam Square. It's in the heart of (what remains of) the Red Light District, and close to lots of nice bars and restaurants.
Check-in took an age as there was only one person on reception and the process seemed to take a long time. When we finally got to our room, we found it was VERY small. European hotels don't often have generously-sized rooms, but this one was so poky it was actually difficult to move around it with two people in it.
That said, what space there was was used well - nice big flat screen TV, desk, small wardrobe, etc. The bathroom was similarly small, with a shower cubicle, sink and loo. I honestly think the bathroom was so small that people who are on the large side might struggle to use it comfortably. I never did find the switch to turn on the light in the bathroom, which made it a bit difficult to put my make-up on in the morning, but perhaps I was just being a bit dense!
Free wifi on offer, but this involved a logon through a browser, which meant it worked on my iPad but not on my phone. Assume this would work fine on a laptop.
In all, this place was good value (in a city where value is often hard to come by). Not a hotel where you'd want to hang about and relax, but a good base for exploring the city.
