Starting with the good news: the hotel has a nice, fairly quiet location near Frederiksplein and Singel canal - the main museums, Leidseplein (the Leicester Square of Amsterdam) and the Albert Cuyp street market are all within 15 minutes' walk. The nearest tram stop (Frederiksplein; lines 4 & 25 to Centraal, 7 & 10 to Leidseplein & Jordaan) is 2 minutes' walk away. The staff is friendly and speaks good English (as does everyone in the city), the breakfast was OK (although no toaster), and my shower was new & powerful.
The worse news was that I had the smallest single room imaginable (a single bed, TV, wardrobe, small desk & chair) and it was too far from the reception for the free WiFi to get a signal! So avoid room no. 38 if you want to browse. Also had some noise from the main street nearby and more from the neighbours' TVs. The decor is slightly dated but everything was clean and tidy.
Not sure if the tiny room was worth €113 that I paid per night, but I guess the location made up for it.
