A good hotel in the city center
Last month I had an oppportunity to spend 3 nights at Luxer hotel in Amsterdam and I can recommend it to anybody visiting this exciting city. The hotel is located in the very center of the city; central station, the Damsquare, the Nieuwmarkt - all within walking distance. It isn't over-priced - 80 Eur for a double room (altough the prices can be higher depending on a season) plus a very decent breakfast - with different kinds of bread, sausages, cheese as well as good coffee and something that is called Viener Melange (kind of capuccino, I tasted it for the first time there). What else? The room was spotlessly clean, rather spacious, with a very comfortable bed. Their staff is friendly and willing to help. The hotel is located at Warmoesstraat, which is full of restaurants, coffee shops, as well as some sex shops aimed mainly at gay targets. Generally, vibrant and full of life.

GREAT PLACE; GREAT STAFF
I spent 5 nights at Luxer Hotel in Amsterdam in July 2005 and I highly recommend this place. The rooms were excellent, not as small as usually in Europe. All the hotel was new and beautifully decorated. Breakfast was nice with a wide variety of food. The location was excellent, only 5 minutes from Central Station, very close to the Red Light District, in a pedestrian street full of people, restaurants, coffee shops... you can see real Amsterdam in that street. The staff was great, always helpful.
I would stay there again, for sure.
Luxer is a charming hotel
I have never had a bummy hotel, they have all been great. I have stayed in 'The Jolly Carlton' 'The Luxor' 'GT hotel Inntel' 'the Lacanna'. The luxer is very friendly and the bar is open 24hrs to residents. comfy rooms. One tip though, its a lot cheaper to book hotels at last minute, as opposed to the airlines being the opposite- they are cheaper to book in advance.
Unique Quality: Great View of the clock steeple tower

In the Centre of it All!
This hotel is small, friendly and the breakfast is delicious! The first room we were assigned was too small for us - but the staff was prepared to accomadate us when we asked for a larger room!
A very important factor - the room were spotless - especially the bathrooms. Everything looked very new so i am sure it had just underwent some renovations.
Unique Quality: Please take note!
The hotel is on the border of the Red Light District.
The hotel is on a street which is primarily known for homosexuals - although, i have seen much more graphic things in Toronto. We didn't even notice, until it was pointed out to us on one of our tours.
Five minute walk to Central Station AND all of the Tram lines which essentially take you anywhere you want to go in the city.
