We stayed at the HEM hotel as we got it on an Expedia special rate. Rated on Expedia as a 3* it was more like a 2*. Outdated décor with a very strange outdoor indoor bit (we never did spot Yogie the Bear) but it was okay. It is a little out of town about 20 minutes from Central Station but only a short walk from the tram which runs to just after midnight, after which there is an hourly night bus.
The room wasn't filled with all the mod cons but was clean and warm. Nothing to write home about but adequate for a quiet night's sleep away from the action.
Value for money it was an excellent choice but don't expect too much

Historical Traveler Reviews West Side Inn Hotel Amsterdam
Stayed for 2 days in May 2003 in an economic twin room. The rooms were comfortable, of adequate size and spotlessly clean. Although the hotel is a little out of the way from the town centre, there is a tram stop 5 mins walk away. At night a taxi costs around 20 euros from the Leidesplein. All in all a decent hotel for the price. The only down side is that a lot of the main attractions aren't really within walking distance.

... but overall did great.
We stopped in Delft for lunch in the main town square next to the Niewe Kerk (new church). It was a nice little cafe. We had Toasted sandwiches (toasties), and Brian had croquettes (fried meat ball things)
Tom was a trooper and drove through the outer parts of Amsterdam to find the house while dodging bikes, cars, pedestrians. Tom needed a beer after navigating those streets!

... We will still have a vacation in Egypt in November but we will have to see how that goes since Egypt has seen extreme political unrest and chaos this year and the goverment advises against travelling to Egypt right now.

You are taken, of course, to The Sights, so you can photograph yourself in front of the Hermitage, the Colosseum, the Eiffel Tower, and you are probably chivvied around the inside too, but at speed (except for all the standing around waiting for everyone else to buy souvenirs) and plonked in front of the Madonna ...
... we ask for assistance do we learn that the painting that occupied a large part of Hilary's Year 11 English class lives in The Hague! From there, it's a tram ride back towards the centre of town and a delightful dinner at a canal-side pub. The food is good, the evening is (relatively) warm and the efficient waitress a fun-filled wealth of information... Rents in the surrounding canal apartments are around €3000 ...
... Next day tour guide Chris took us to Zaans Schans which was an old Dutch village with working windmills and buildings from the 1600's where we climbed up into a working paint grinding windmill (oh dear, this would not fly at home, WCB would have a field day! Very cool though, if not a little frightening as it was very windy and the whole building shook with the power of the old mill turning at full speed.) and had a ...
