Very Nice, and well situated.

Our second trip to Amsterdam and the second small hotel that we have stayed in.
Nice hotel, close to Dam Square and Central.
Front desk staff were efficient but not very outgoing. Overall the hotel was in good condition but is a real rabbit warren when looking for your room, Luckily our room (204) was just across from the elevator. Remember that Europeans count the ground floor as "0", therefore, the second floor is three floors up which is a long walk with suitcases.
Our room faced the very busy street but was surprisingly quiet. The bathroom was large with a great rain shower and hand held shower. Lots of hot water.
The negatives: Limited storage space for hanging clothes. The room was a strange angle which caused the (very comfortable) bed to almost touch the wall causing us to bang our shins on the corner of the bed and then catching one hip on the window sill. Not the greatest of problems unless one person gets up in the middle of the night and must crawl across the other occupant. The reason for this issue is the cabinet holding the safe, the hanging storage and the only drawer and the coffee pot. Why the unit isn't on the other side of the bed is a mystery. TV programming was limited for English programs, but we spent very little time in the room. There are many eating and drinking places close by and we found good food within steps of the hotel. I would definitely stay there again.
