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.

Kaas means cheese and the Dutch have got it right, the older the cheese, the higher the value.

We bought our chlorophyll-laden (pesto) slice in Jordaan, a quieter residential enclave off the city centre where you do get to see the locals. Just love how the children are transported in carriers in front of their parents' bicycles. And ...
... to this kind of thing back in the States. But, it was a good experience in pursuit of understanding this strange and extremely liberal culture.
On Monday morning Amy and myself toured the original Heineken brewery. Although they do not brew beer here anymore, it is still used to offer tourists an amazing look into the make and manufacture of Heineken beer. Heineken began making beer in 1864, and was the first company to use a science lab to perfect it's beer recipe. ...
... walking for a couple of hours, mainly nosing around the Dam and one of the main shopping streets, Kalverstraat. Also trying on shoes in the hope of finding some new boots.
Both tired, but doing a good job of staying awake.
In the evening found a little local Italian cafe, Las Marias, which had very nice food - lasagne and pizza.
Slept okay with the help of melatonin.
... br> Time to board our bus again destination this time and our last night is Amsterdam. Arrived about 3ish in the afternoon with an hour to settle into the hotel and get ready for our last night out and tour of Amsterdam.
The red light district of this city is most interesting, ladies standing in the windows with next to nothing on hoping some business comes their way. Some of them were not ladies apparently these were the ones with the massive boobs ...
