Liked: very nice american lady who seems to run the hotel. all staff were v. friendly and knowledgable! shower and bathroom areas were clean. although wifi doesnt stretch to rooms, they offer free use of the computer which makes up for it. breakfast pretty good- individual toaster per table!

Disliked: not many english channels on tv.. also front door difficult to open- but that is seriously picking a fault!

Disliked: This is the second time we stayed at this joint, the last stay was a fairly good room with an okay kind of view, this time the roo had no view, the access to the room was through a small corridor and a narrow staircase, taking bags inside was a problem.

Liked: The bathrooms were clean, although there was one for the hole floor.

Disliked: We are a couple and they put us in a VERY small room on the 3rd floor, so small we couldn't stand by the bed normally. It's good if you're with friends and just want to have fun, but the hotel is not for couples.

Liked: Staff were friendly and helpful; trolly ride or short walk (<30min) from train station and central Amsterdam; free internet in lobby - VERY helpful for travel!

Disliked: Rooms permit smoking, which didn't bother us but might bother others; we ended up having a shared bathroom and shared shower, but no complaints about it
