Disliked: Room comfort
Loud street noise. Bad beds.
Bed was just soft enough to not bruise. It felt like sleeping on the ground. The mattress was like a solid block of foam. Meanwhile, while laying awake we listened to drunks outside until 4AM and loud scooters all night. Windows were like paper. Staff were kind and location was convenient to some Amsterdam attractions.

I was really disappointed with the room in this hotel. It wasn't clean - the kettle station was covered in a thick layer of dust, the mugs were dirty, the shower was covered in hairs - as was one of the towels. It also smelled a lot like smoke, which was strange considering it was supposed to be a non smoking room. The rooms are very close together and walls very thin. We didn't get a good night's sleep on any of the nights as we were kept awake by the guy next door snoring and/or the couple the other side's loud conversations and music. However, the staff were very friendly and it was located in a great location. It was really easy to access some of the main sights, as well as public transport to go further afield.
