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.

... At the end, you even went to a bar (complete with fantastic images from around the world) and we had a couple of glasses of Heineken.
Then it was back on the Hop-on Hop-off Canal boat to head back to where we caught it earlier in the morning. We walked back to the hotel and I went to my favourite "free wi-fi" place - the Crepe Bar - to catch up on emails. Later we went to dinner with Cindy and Paul to a restaurant which served traditional Dutch ...
... We knew from some prior research that the Anne Frank House was located close by and since we weren’t able to buy online tickets we decided to go check out how long the line was. We were of course not surprised to find the line stretching clear around the block when we arrived and we decided that it might be better to continue exploring and circle back later in the day or another day when the line was a bit more manageable. So with that we began to ...
