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 …
... of expect the city to be a giant night club however most people seem to be just going about their business. I was wanting strobe lights and wild music and like frikken Lady Gaga to pop out of nowhere but it was just a city... evidently like any other city.
HOWEVER it was not long until we passed threw the street dedicated to all the humanly pleasures. The first drug store (lol no literally a store filled with hallucinogenics and all) ...
... the day. I visited 2 more museums and visited Anne Franks house. It was really neat, there were videos and the pages from her journal. I even got to go through the hidden door behind the bookcase into where the 8 people were hiding. There were still the original magazine pictures on the wall that she glued on and talked about in her journal. I picked up my luggage from the hostel and made my way to the ...
... markets. The flower markets were full of colorful tulips, perfect posies for any vase or for surprising a loved one.
After the bus trip, my friend Hayley and I went to Anne Frank's House - a MUST-visit place while in Amsterdam. This humbling museum is the original hiding place and home where Anne Frank wrote her famed diary while in hiding during WWII. It captures your humility and pulls at your heartstrings as you walk through the halls and ...
... peddling to break is needed, a tour person took us on a 40minute ride with a few stops in between, it was great fun as well as scary with the small streets and cars flying around and other cyclists. One girl was riding in front of us and managed to ride into a tree, which was really funny (she was fine). We then made our way back to the coach. After a 15minute drive we were at our next stop the cheese ...

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!
