The rooms were Ok but smaller than expected. The corridors smelt of smoke. The rooms were not as clean as I would have hoped. The location, although not far from the Lelylaan train station (2 stops from the airport) and 200 m to a tram stop and 500m to the far end of Vondel park, was in a weird situation of mixed business district, empty lots and residential blocks - no atmosphere at all nearby - but that is modern Amsterdam I suppose. it was still 3-4 km from the centre of Amsterdam requiring a tram trip in daily, kind of fun anyway - get a day pass on the tram cheaper - the centre, museums, cafes, canals etc is where we spent most of our time. But that's what you get for a budget price. I thought it was odd that the manager told us we MUST wait at the desk for 15 minutes to check out whilst she conducted the daily meeting with cleaning staff - this was a little inconvenient and more so for some who might need to make train connections, but not a show stopper. OK stay - but I would stay closer to the centre and spend a little more to do it.

... Rest ye...' (Not very Celtic?!), and some great fiddling in a few Reels and waltzes with no Christmas connection at all, 'Ar Hyd y Nos' in English, and not a direct translation, I'm sure, and the encore of... 'Molly Malone', which I found bizarre, but which every Dutch person in the room could sing along to! The other event I had researched and pre-booked was a cheese tasting lesson. I didn't find a lot to love about Amsterdam, but I ...
... interesting thing on the wall was a super old yearbook picture of Britney Spears back in the mid 1990's!
We spent the evening at the Rijksmuseum, home to some pretty famous painters like Rembrandt, Vermeer, and Van Gogh. Outside of the Rijksmuesum was one of the famous "I Amsterdam" signs. I didn't know before, but apparently the signs constantly are moved throughout the city so people can take pictures with them near all the famous landmarks. I was happy since ...
Today we had our earliest morning of the trip. We had to be at breakfast at 7, to leave at 7.30 for the train station. Jason was already up and making us breakfast. Even though we asked him not to go out of his way, he still provided everything we had every other morning! We got a taxi to take us to the station, and it arrived in Etheridge style. So much so, even we weren't ready for it! We gathered up our stuff and went to get the train. The ...
... tour. Both of these were purchased through the tours and tickets company. It was really good, especially if you need to see a city in a small time period. I recommend you do both to get the most out of Amsterdam. That evening we went on a free walking tour which you pick up at 8pm from the dam ice in the dum square, through the red light district. Our tour guide roco was amazing and the tour was awesome. Although the tour is free ...
... theirs …. 5 times! 15 minutes later, uh oh, Paulie’s eyes are a shade redder, he’s mentioned how ‘relaxing this stuff makes you’ and then he’s asleep…again!
A pint of coke later to soften the edges we venture into the Red Light District, (this Anniversary is getting more romantic by the minute…) where girls occupy telephone booth style ...
