8/10 Very good

The hotel is conveniently located along the canal rings and near a Metro station. My room was small even by European standards but the price seems good for Amsterdam.

Disappointed in family theme, nice place
Flight canceled 2 months prior to my trip causing me to arrive a day later and even with 2 months advance notice they refused to cancel my 1 night of a 5 night stay. Nice place, nice staff but for family not very understanding

4/10 Fair

Glorified Youth Hostel
The location, friendliness, cleanliness and room were all excellent. However, I would describe the hotel as a glorified youth hostel. I was given a room in a separate building on the street, which was unserviced by any staff. The rooms are small and thin therefore meaning you can hear everything and everyone around you. At after midnight, I was awoken by a french couple banging on doors and windows, having lost their entry call. They proceeded to sit in the hallway talking, laughing and eating loudly, waiting for staff to bring a new key. Due to the hotel's zero-staff policy, this key replacement took half an hour, meaning I had to personally confront the rude guests (TWICE) which should be the job of hotel management to control. This is therefore not a hotel for those on business or people wanting a quiet night's sleep.
