TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel de Westertoren Amsterdam
I had no problem with the people who ran this hotel, who were polite and helpful. The room, however, looked very old and worn out. Everything was old and dingy. The breakfast (that is included in the price of the room) was filling although of mixed quality (the contents changed slight each day.) NOTE: The is no elevator and the stairs are very steep and slim.

... br> Getting to our home for the next three days - the Avenue Hotel (which was recommended to us by Mel) - was very easy. We decided the quickest and easiest way to get into the city was by taxi.

After some art appreciation we then trammed out to a windmill which in fact is not that far from our houseboat and also a craft brewery!! Fabulous inside and ...
... the canal as we sat there. And a pigeon kept coming round for scraps.
By this time it was almost five and we thought we would benefit from - you guessed it, a nap- before going out tonight. We got back on the metro and spent two glorious hours with our feet up. Have we mentioned there is a fair right in Dam square where the Royal palace is? It's chaos! There are so many people here this weekend, we are just weaving in and out, ...
Nice and early we stroll to Marcies work "Bakers and Roasters" without getting lost. A nice kiwi-ised cafe with proper coffee. Whilst she slaved away we also had some yummy chocolate cake.
Next stop was the Rijksmuseum in a huge old building. Outside we laughed at all the tourists getting their "I Amsterdam" shot. Then they probably laughed as we tried to get ours.
The 2nd floor contained ...
