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.

Lamb curry, egg do dah, prawn satay, fish curry, chicken fritters to name but few all washed down with a glass of local beer. The downside of this indulgence ...
... place (much like Athens). However, I was surprised to find clean streets with children playing (even in the red light district). Amsterdam has put a lot of effort into making its streets clean and safe, so much so that there is a child care centre right in the centre of the red light district. It is in fact the safest and most desirable place to live in Amsterdam! Amsterdam is often compared to Venice as it is made up of many canals and bridges, it actually has more canals ...
... war and tells a somber but fascinating story.Next, a packed lunch and trip to the Rijksmuseum, a museum famous for its paintings and historic art. Overall it was a little dry, but did include some captivating and impressive pieces, the most famous being the Nights Watch by Rembrandt. Just across the way, was the van Gogh museum. We were a bit art overwhelmed by this point, but felt obligated to see the museum being so close. Here the museum card failed. It was near over when ...
