Last night I got back into Amsterdam and took a tour of the Red Light district. I learned a great deal. Photos are not allowed of the area. This rule is strictly enforced by the owners of the windows. Of course I can't share everything I learned (due to the fact I don't want it being read back at my Senate Confirmation hearing), but here are some …
So today I headed out to do the touristy stuff of Amsterdam. The first thing you have to do is a canal trip. The leisurely pace of the canal boat lets you to soak in the charm of the elaborate gables and creative angles of the 350 year old homes. Fans of the Amazing Race will remember the stop in Amsterdam where the players had to hoist furniture …
First things first: Happy Birthday Melanie. In your honor I am posting a picture of some Dutch sheep I saw today. This has been by far my favorite day in Amsterdam. I took the train outside of the city to a town called Weesp. It is a small village about 8 miles from Amsterdam situated on the Vecht river. One local I spoke to explained that it is …
... just visits. It was very romantic... We found a lovely little cafe on the Dam Square overlooking the Royal Palace and sat outside. While it was chilly I was impressed they provided nanna rugs to keep me warm while I ate. I had a smoked salmon roll with cream cheese, capers, olives and salad, it was huge and I struggled to finish it, Ron had a local Dutch soup made of peas and sausages called Erwtensoep, it came with a ham and mustard sandwich so for less ...
... cocaine. There is a weird toothless lady that knows where to get the best stuff. -there is a big difference between the red light district at 11 in the morning and 11 at night. For example if you're into fat elderly women- DON'T GO AT NIGHT! They're like nowhere to be found. However in the morning, they are all over. Seriously though, it's weird and sad. Other tips ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Bellevue Hotel Amsterdam
Previous reviews were spot on.
What can I say, all the previous reviews are exactly as reported. It is across the street from Central Station (maybe 100 yards). The rooms look like they were from the pages of an IKEA catalog. The staff was friendly and spoke perfect English.
As far as Amsterdam, what a great city. Make sure you hit all the museums - especially the Heiniken Tour.
Just returned from Amsterdam and the Bellevue Hotel. This place just opened 5 months ago and is brand new. It's by far the best 3 star hotel we've stayed in. The interior design of the rooms is fantastic. It includes wonderful room lighting scheme options, a flat screen T.V. built into the wall, double pane windows that completely shut out the noise (so grab a room on the street side, the views are marvelous), floor to ceiling mirror in the bathroom, hair dryer, accent wallcovering and wonderful mattresses and comforters. The housekeeping staff is excellent. We slept in one day till 3:00PM due to the never ending nightlife options and used our "Do Not Disturb" door knob sign. The housekeeping staff never disturbed us and to our surprise, left new towels and wash clothes in a bag hung onto our door. That's what I call customer service. The room size (twin) was appropriate for European standards. The breakfast was excellent and offered many options (eggs, sausage, bacon, mini Dutch pancakes, cereal, breads, juices, coffee, even ice water). The desk staff is pleasant and seemed genuinely happy that you selected their hotel. The location is great. It's a 5 minute walk from the train station and couldn't be easier to find. The value is unsurpassed.
Have just spent 3 days in Amsterdam at Bellevue Hotel. The location is great - you can walk to "everything". The hotel is new and fresh. Breakfast is ok, but be awere the opening hours. We were told that the breakfast was open until 10.30 every day - not true. That is just in the weekends.
The shower did not have shower curtains so the floor got really wet.
Regardless a few negative things, this is a very nice place to stay when going to Amsterdam. A 3 star hotel close to 4!
We would definitely stay here again.
The best choice in amsterdam
I went to amsterdam whit my husband in july 2005. I think I saw all the hotels in amsterdam in the internet before i reserve this. We loved the hotel itīs a 3 stars that can easily be a 4 stars. The rooms are quiet small, but in amsterdam they all are... :) The rooms are very modern, in a minimalist style, very clean, very confortable, LCD television, big windows, very white, whit a good light. The personal are very friendley, and helps you a lot.
Itīs a central hotel, were you can reach almost all pointīs of interest by walking around. For me is the best way to know amsterdam. You can rent a bike if you like .
Buy the amsterdam card but not for all the days, itīs not necessary, plan the visitīs and than buy.
I loved amsterdam and i will go there again and i will saty in bellevue :)
P.S: donīt take the breakfast in the hotel, you can find more nice places around the city, and for less money.
Great place, but take your breakfast outside!
Just spent 2 nights in the Bellevue and it was everything other people said about it: very clean, very nice design in rooms, charming people at the reception.
However, the breakfast was very disappointing (specially when not included in the price and you pay an extra 10 euros for it): croissants were not fresh, orange juice was awfull and i was refused an espresso, because the filter coffee was meant to be strong enough... which was far from true.
So, just avoid the breakfast, everything else is great!
Really nice clean hotel
My boyfriend and I spent 2 nights at this hotel last week. The staff were very friendly and helpful, we even got to check in well before the 2pm timeline. Rooms are very small, but it seems that this is the case in most places over there, clean, all white with nice inset lighting on the headboard and in our front facing 5th floor room we had a great view of St Nicholas church as I have attached. Location is good, pretty much across from the central station and walking distance to everywhere else, we didn't actually get any public transport and saw everything we wanted. I would definitely stay here again.
Ultra Modern and Affordable
I stayed here by myself on buisiness and ..what a cool hotel!
Although small the public areas and rooms are SPOTLESS and all white!
My room was compact but with flat screen LCD tv,ultra-modern bathroom,aircon, etc. and really helpful and friendly staff made my short stay really nice. Really well located near Central Station, but on a quietish road.It was a good choice and I will stay there again.
New and Hip
Booked this hotel through the tourist bureau. Was less than ecstatic about it due to our previous nights stay at the IBIS near the airport (only place left with room). . our expectations were about as low as you can get but we wanted to have a room and be done with it. It turned out the modest Dutch way of just stating the facts really don't do this place justice. It is totally refurbished. The rooms are clean, ultra sleek, and have flat-screen TV's. It is probably the hippest hotel I've stayed in and was affordable too. It is in a great location right across from the train station and nearly everything is walk able. .I will note that we did wake up to a mouse in our room in the middle of the night trying to steal some treats out of a bag. icky! I'm sure this is just one of those things that happens when in a city of hundreds of years-old buildings. The hotel was spot-less, so I really think that if this happened here, It could happen anywhere. Would gladly stay here again. (without the snacks in the room)
