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 Outdated décor with a very strange outdoor indoor bit (we never did spot Yogie the Bear) but it was okay.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.

Today, feeling more intrepid, we toured Amsterdam by bicycle, blending with the other 880K bikes in this town (3 bikes for every person?) which caused Quinn to wonder why anyone needed to worry about ever locking their bicycles up. Why steal one ...

Such is Victoria's power over me. She gets a phone call from her mum, she starts talking Norwegian, which I love, it's not quite French but it's a cool language, very similar to Swedish.

We had a Dutch Hotchpotch lunch at DeBlauwe Hollander along with pea soup and custard. We walked back to our hotel along the canals with cars, trams, bicycles and umbrellas. It's been quite an adventure.

... to the front and take a picture and we weren't that interested. Now that it is nearing the end of our trip we are kind of tired of being tourists. We decided we were going to be frugal locals and take the underground "tube" back to the area of our hotel before dinner. Well we kept getting confused and some man became very concerned for us and helped us out quite a bit. We ended up giving him $10 and by the time we did all of the train transfers and buying tickets I would say it ...
... we arrived there was no one there. We did however, pass on our way (to our amusement) a tour group of Australians, looking a famous cheese shop - being offered to have their cheese shipped back to Australia for them! The street is located in the Wallen district - the largest and best known of the 3 red-light districts in Amsterdam (wiki will tell you that there is approximately 300 one-room cabins rented by prostitutes in this area). We were lucky (or unlucky depending on how ...
