I love this hotel. I have stayed here once or twice per year for the last 5 years. The staff are charming, the breakfast is good, the location is perfect. If you take the 197 bus from Schiphol Airport, it will drop you about 4 blocks from the hotel. This will set you back 4 euro rather than the 35 or so for a taxi. I almost never take trams in town as I can walk to almost everything I want to visit. This trip I stayed in one of the large doubles which was very roomy. I often stay in one of the singles which are fairly small, but well laid out. If you push your bag under the desk you aren't tripping over it and it is fine for one person. The rooms are very clean with lots of hot water and at a very reasonable price. There is a lovely back yard off of the breakfast room where you can watch the parrots - not native to Amsterdam, but these escapees have certainly thrived.
