This is one of the best hotels from a service standpoint that I've stayed at, and this coming from a very frequent, hotel snob. No surprise, it is a deluxe-class Japanese-run hotel which makes service (and cleanness) a top priority.
Upon arriving after a long flight from Washington, DC, despite the early check-in time, I was accommodated with a great room with a view and an unbelievably helpful front desk person on directions and how to get around. The concierge was also great about how to navigate the tram system, although they do try to keep it simple and tell you of ways to just take one train and walk rather than transfer (which is what I eventually did).
The property itself is a little off the beaten path, south of the main touristy areas. It is in a more neighborhood and office building area but still a short tram ride (#12 from about two blocks away, the #16 and #24 from about ten blocks away).
Because the city has so much to offer, I did not get a chance to use any of the workout facilities or the restaurants. The lobby is very quiet and the restaurant closes pretty early (11 p.m. on a Sunday night) so if you're looking to catch a late drink, you should go to one of the neighborhood bars.
Great hotel tram 16 or 24 right outside takes you to dam sq or central stn. Buy a 7.50 euro tkt from driver lasts 24hrs. Hotel is very clean helpful staff. Restaurant expensive but places nearby for breakfast. Would defi stay again

Typical European hotel. Tiny room with just enough space for the bed. Beds were very soft, too soft for our taste. Hotel was clean. Continental breakfast was just okay, would have preferred to have eaten at one of the nearby bakeries, but everything was closed for Easter Monday.
It is a dorm, nothing more, nothing less. Location is excellent, a beautiful park on the doorstep. 10 minutes via tram from the city centre and mueseums. WiFi is also excellent, didn't have any problems at all. Bathrooms are clean but small. Beds are comfortable but very close together: I was in a 10 bed dorm that actually squished in 12 beds. A decent dorm at a decent price. You could do better, but you could also do worse. Would recommend.

This is one of the best B&B I have had in a while. The hotel is very well situated and near 2 main streets. There is always something to do around the hotel.
The room itself is very comfortable. I would definitely go back there.

The Pipe' (its derivation is a mystery) is a quiet residential suburb with a cosmopolitan bohemian air thanks to a large number of immigrants and the recent gentrification of the area by an arty crowd. Running through the centre, the daily Albert Cuyp Market is the largest in the city. De Pijp is also renowned for its restaurants which serve some of Amsterdam's best ethnic (Syrian, Moroccan, Surinamese, Turkish etc) food.
