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.

There were excellent paintings from different eras and done in different styles.
Lunch back at the boat was buffet style and we had lovely ...
... The line to buy tickets was over a mile long, wrapped around many blocks and this was at 9 am. Fortunately for us, we had bought tickets in advance.
All the kids were looking forward to the visit to the Anne Frank Annex. It did not disappoint. It has generated many good conversations, even with Bella. If you are ever in Amsterdam, make sure to visit the Annex. It was totally refurbished in 1999 creating a museum rather than just a stop and ...
On our second full day in the Netherlands we got to sleep in until noon and finally recovered from our jet lag. Sadly, Ype and Taeke had to go to school because they don't get off for 3 more weeks, so we had the day to wander around Amsterdam by ourselves. We wandered through the city stopping to climb on the famous I Amsterdam sign. After taking photos on practically each letter we crossed the street to the newly restored Rijks Museum. There we got ...
