This morning I made my way to Amsterdam. It was about an hour's ride so the money I saved on a cheaper hostel in Rotterdam I probably just spent in petrol - but I did get to see Rotterdam yesterday as well which was a bonus. Amsterdam's traffic is madness, there are bicycles everywhere like blowflies and they have right of way which makes getting around as a motorbike or car really difficult - not to mention there's canals everywhere so every street is a ...
... that looked interesting but we had no time for that. We were scheduled to meet George and Sharon on Damrak near Centraal Station for our afternoon outing. Given our adventure cycling to the museum, we wanted to make sure we had plenty of time to get lost and found before arriving at our destination. After digging our bikes out of the multiple locks that we put on them, we rode off. We rode in the general direction of the train station. ...

Our first breakfast was a preview of our breakfasts for the next 6 days. If you couldn't find something really yummy, you are too hard to please. I will say that their bacon is more like Canadian bacon and we all long for our crisp bacon strips. They had all sorts of things from eggs to fruit to pastry on the buffet and then you could order whatever you wanted from the ...
... about 1.30 but couldn't check in until 3 pm so enjoyed a glass of French sauvignon blanc inn the lobby bar while we waited. We had gone up to the bar on 11 th floor where there are great views but the music being played by the DJ was just a bit too loud!

3. Exercise. Swimming, in particular. It’s good at inducing a meditative state wherein you can solve the world’s problems.

TravelPod Member ReviewsBastion Amsterdam/Centrum Zuidwest
The good... Near a tram stop. Near one end of Vondel park. Price average. Staff friendly. Nice coffee. Beds comfy. free mints at the counter Woohoo.
The bad... seemed to be stuck out in the middle of nowhere and beside busy road. Surrounds were desolate. Lots of construction about. Room small. Stairs, hall, room all smelled of cigarettes. Coffee and tea was short and not replenished. Room could have been cleaner. Was told to come back to the front desk in 15 minutes so i did not disturb the daily housekeeping meeting.
Make up your own mind.
I would stay closer to central Districts next time even if a bit more expensive.
