Travel Blogs from Amsterdam
On the 28th I left Nashville and transferred over in Houston. I landed in Amsterdam at 8 in the morning. I was really surprised that security was so easy going in Amsterdam. They really didn't ask me anything. They just stamped the passport and moved me through. After going through all that I headed to my hotel. It was pretty nice. The only big …
We also ate our fair share of raw meat (a local specialty apparently, but I can't be sure if Aaron was just pulling our leg on that). The raw meat is served as a beef mince (just like the mince you buy from the supermarket), with raw onions and half a boiled egg on top, all smeared over bread. If you close your eyes and imagine you're eating something ...
... people and trains are nice! A lovely lady escorted us via the tram to the station so we didn't miss the train and the first leg of our journey was on a DOUBLE DECKER TRAIN! Woop! That was mint and by now I was about 60% better. A few stops at Antwerp and Rotterdam and we have arrived in the beautiful Amsterdam. I'm in an outfit which to me says "I FEEL ILL AND DON'T CARE" but despite the fact it's pride over here, ...
The day started out with a hearty breakfast at our local Cafe Kuijper with the local wildlife... giant bumble bees and J's new best friend free wifi! We took the No. 9 to Mr. Visser Plein and stumbled across a street market where J and Dan did a Dutch version of antiques roadshow while Michie and I found our way to the big double decker red bus to get our tourist on. First stop the Heineken Experience. The highlight being the lame 4D movie where we discovered what life ...
... system? The best moments of my travel experiences have been the times I've been able to dredge up a local phrase for "beautiful blue eyes" or "nice place" and suddenly the connection is there, and the photo in front of the Important Ruins is not at all important any more.
Even though I sometimes feel I travel to photograph, I also really value the opportunities to capture the small things that are different from my usual experience: the doorknobs, the smallholder ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Amstelzicht Amsterdam
Stayed here with two of my mates from Sunday 13-Wednesday 16 March 05. We had a tripple room which consisted of a double bed and a single. The hotel was fantastic and location was brillant. It's just off Dam Square and there is a great Irish pub beside it (great craic and sing songs!!) Sessions go on here all night!!!
We stayed at the Hotel Amstelzicht, Sunday-Thursday, 13-17 March 2005. On-site owners Robert and Ramon were extremely friendly and accommodating. There's no lift, and the stairway is very narrow and steep, but our room (facing the rear), although a bit sparse (no closets or drawers) was clean, comfortable, and quiet. The central location is excellent, right on the Amstel Canal and just yards from a tram stop. Add to all of this quite reasonable rates, and you'd have a hard time finding a better value. Would not hesitate to stay here again. Highly recommended.
Stayed here with my wife for 3 nights (Thurs-Sun) in mid Feb 2004, and it was a good place to stay.
While this sunless dungeon may technically qualify as a three star, don't expect any class with your room. The house rules are conservative (this is Amsterdam, right?)- expect to leave your key and ring the doorbell 24 hours a day. The owner is the worst- he epitomizes the inhospitality and self-centeredness of a tourist hotel that cares not for your comfort or repeat business. His unabashed anti-American attitude is both professionally and personally ignorant, and his staff seems frightened into submission. Considering the location of the hotel near the Rembrandtplein (what Amsterdamers consider to be the worst part of town), it is not suprising that this hotel is perfectly willing to take advantage of your vulnerabilities and your credit card imprint should you raise any complaint, as they did to me. Fortunately or not, you may receive better service and more respectful attention if you are a man, or traveling with a man. If you made the mistake I did by booking here, hope that at least during the night the blood will rish to your head from sleeping with your head downhill from your feet, and that you will wake up with no conscious memory of this place. You couldn't pay me to stay here again.
Robert & ramon have a new "Palace"
wanted to let you know that our friends from the "Townhouse"B&B just bought a veautiful little palace nestled in the heart of amsterdam... when I called to make my resrevation, Robert Invited us to stay here. It was warm, clean, and of course just like in the Townhouse very personal service.
In case you don't know it, it is Amstelzicht, located in the heart of Amsterdam, give them a call and tell Kathryn sent you!
Rates are competitive, the staff and envirinment is wonderful!
We stayed at the Amstelzicht for 3 nights from November 4th 2004. I was very pleased that all my careful deliberations and planning when choosing a hotel had paid off.
Amsterdam - as always - is a hustle and bustle of bike riders, canals, museums, great shops and restaurants; what you crave to enjoy it all is a safe retreat.
Excellent hotel with attentive owners
We were dragging our bags around looking for a hotel after a night in a not so nice one, saw a room available sign, and found an oasis. New owners very attentive, infomative and enthusiastic about their city, and committed to making their hotel a sucess. Room a good value at 105 euros compared to several other places we saw. Cleans rooms, clean uncluttered decor thruout. We stayed in Amsterdam longer that excepted because we liked the hotel so well.
Large room, best location, friendly staff
Perfect place to stay when in amsterdam,
very clean, lovely welcome during check in, good breakfast and the location is PERFECT ! I had only two days in Amsterdam and from the Amstelicht everything was within 10 minutes walk.
I will be back!
We loved it!
Me and my friends booked a triple room. We stayed 5 nights in total and everything was great. Small, traditional building overlooking a canal and very convenient as it is in a central location (however in a quiet neighbourhood) and everything is within walking distance. The room was very spacious and comfortable. There was daily room service keeping it clean and tidy. The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. Whenever we go back to Amsterdam we will definitely stay there again!
