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 …
... to go. Some groups had spread out blankets for picnics, couples were holding hands and gazing onto each others eyes, and dogs were romping about...for real!
The kids wanted to go to a playground. We walked and walked but didn't find one. There were open air cafés and small portable food kiosks, but no playground equipment. Grant and Chloé decided the that as much as they enjoyed finding random sticks to play with and walking through tree ...
... Heineken Experience crowns so we asked them where it was and if it was worth it. They said they enjoyed it so we decided to go on Sunday.
We then headed to our hotel to check-in since we had been lugging our backpacks around all day. We get to our canal and its this huge crowd of people on the bridges and a traffic jam of boats on the canals full of people. It was pure craziness. We pushed our way to our hotel and then pushed our way to our room which was across ...
... get into the Anne Frank museum was the longest we had waited in all trip. This particular line was cold. The buildings were shading us from what little sun was out, and the wind was assisting in welcoming the goosebumps appearing under our warm clothes. Des (a coffee connoisseur) and I headed to get coffee while the others huddled in line. Once we were inside the museum we walked our way quietly through this fascinating piece of history. It really highlighted ...
... a solemn, moving experience and I’m grateful for the chance to see it. After that, we bought supermarket snackies for €3 and ate them by some stupid pigeons. (Side note: Pigeons are Satan’s messenger birds. Beware.) Matt insisted that we walk through the Red Light District after lunch/snackies. This was an odd spectacle. Prostitutes were standing in every other window and it’s totally legal. Interesting cultural experience nonetheless, I suppose. ...

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!
