That night we went to a nearby city to watch the gam eand luckily the Netherlands WON! What a great experience. People were going crazy, throwing beer at the screen and dancing and singing. It was really an amazing dutch experience.

We attempted to find somewhere for dinner, but there really wasn't anything around, so we ended up back at the hotel and had beer there and caught up and planned the next few ...

... 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 ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Amsterdam House Hotel

    Very Pleasant

    from

    We traveled to Amsterdam with another couple who had made the hotel reservations. We were quite pleased with our room. The price was very reasonable (less then $150) for a great location. The room was comfortable, if a little worn. Excellent shower with plenty of hot water. Terrific breakfasts with the opportunity to make any kind of eggs or omelets you'd like. The only downside was that it wasn't airconditioned and we stayed during a very warm, humid weekend. We had to decide whether to sleep with the windows open and hear all the canal noise until 3AM or shut them and practically suffocate. And our friends somehow ended up in a narrow room with two twin beds instead of the double requested, but they seemed okay with that.

    Not as it looks on the website !

    from

    We stayed at the Amsterdam House apartment situated at 504 Keizersgracht

    The website photos look spectacular - do not be fooled ! (they are another apartment)

    The apartment is fairly large and well located but had the following negatives :

    The cleanliness was below par - the couches were greasy and had human stains

    The walls were in dire need of re painting

    The bedrooms had clean sheets but more human stains on the blankets

    The kitchen was well equipped but worn out

    The hot water system was not working on arrival but fixed promptly the next day

    It is located above a bagel shop and very close to a

    main tram line to Central Station

    In summary it was expensive for its condition but

    well located

    A home from home

    from

    The Eureka is in an excellent location on the bank of the Amstel just a couple of minutes over the bridge from Rembrandtplein. 12 of the 16 rooms offer a canal view and mine was one of these. The bathroom, though small, was fitted with both shower and bath and a generous supply of toiletries. There were tea and coffee making facilities and even packets of soup on offer. A useful room safe, bookcase plus table and wicker chairs by the window completes the picture. A breakfast buffet was included with lots of fresh fruit and tempting pastries in addition to the usual fare. What I admire most about the Eureka apart from its friendly and welcoming staff are the special touches such as finding wooden boxed games on the tables downstairs in the evening.

    Wonderful Hotel, Wonderful City

    from

    Amsterdam House is a wonderful old world hotel right in the centre of Amsterdam, just 3 tram stops from Central Station. The rooms were compact and clean with a wonderful view of the canal. The hotel is a great base from which to explore the city. The staff were really friendly and the breakfast was wonderful. The ideal location for a short break and very reasonably priced. The only draw back is that the hotel is right next door to the Oldest Gay Bar in Amsterdam so it can be a bit noisy at night - if that is a problem you will have to forfeit the canal views....... All in all a wonderful stay and will be going back again.

    Definitely not going to get what you paid for!

    from

    Horribly disappointed when we attempted to cancel our stay (we even knew we would lose our deposit, as their policy states but were ok with that) and were told flat out - absolutely not.

    Houseboat Rental-Fun but check it out first!

    from

    We rented a houseboat thru Amsterdam House. While the boat was clean (was just painted and remodeled prior to our rental), the "terrace" /decking promised on the back of the boat was non exsistant. We also werent told we would be sharing a houseboat with other renters. While we each had private enterances to our "half of the boat" the boat shook drasticly each time our neighbors arrived and departed when they shut the main door to the boat. The shower stall was extremely small and you were only able to run water for 3 minutes before the bottom filled up and the water had to be shut off to drain. It was fun being on the houseboat it was also VERY pricey for what we got (235E per night for 3 people). We couldnt switch to anything else as we had to pay a 35% of total rental as a deposit. Research very carefully to make sure you receive what you ask for.

    Excellent

    A great little hotel

    from

    I've stayed at this hotel a couple of times, 2001 Jan., and 2002 Mar. I originally stayed at the Park hotel for $125.00 US a nt. but after finding someone passed out in my room and been given the presidential suite for the mistake I said screw this! Thats when I found the eureka hotel. I walked in off the street and they gave me a very fair price $55.00 the first stay, 65.00 the second. The second stay I could not remember the name so when I got to the city I just showed up, told them what I had paid before and they gave me almost the same price. This hotel really makes you feel like you're staying with family. The guy who works there and cooks breakfast in the mornings remembered me from my first stay, it must have been the story from the Park Hotel!!!!! It is a small hotel but clean, safe, and the breakfast is great, basically anything you want! The views from the rooms to the canal 20 feet out your window can't be beat. Close to everything. Its not a huge chain hotel so it lets you feel like you live there.

    Great Location!

    from

    We made our reservation at the airport and the lady got us what we thought was an excellent price. We were surprised to find a hotel for the price of $69 Euros in that area of Amsterdam. The fact that the breakfast was incredible and the staff was very accomodating was a plus.

    Nice hotel, unfair pricing

    from

    In July 2001 we stayed at this lovely hotel. For Amsterdam the room was big, it had tea-making-facilities and a wonderful view. Breakfast was delicious and the stuff was really friendly. hfl 150,-- was a reasonalbe price.As we wanted to return to Amsterdam last summer we asked for the actual price - it was EURO 150,-- and that's a doubling of the price (only due to the EURO-conversion, the hotel was not renovated)!!We asked for the price again this year - and it's the same!This behaviour is not only illegal but also very disappointing. Asked for the boom of prices the hotel couldn't give us any reason....
