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.

There are 750,00 people living in Amsterdam, something I was quite ...
... took a cab back and retrieved my card. Then I was told that they needed at least a 440 Euro deposit; way exceeding my $500 credit limit. Our plans for the day were scrapped.
The plans then changed to explore the Anne Frank museum and then tour the Heineken factory. The Anne Frank museum had a horrible line, so we decided to bump our plans up and take the Heineken Experience. I was a little disappointed by the Experience. Most of the tour felt ...
... with them on my last visit (in high school!) and always look forward to seeing them at our annual Thanksgiving in Florida.
So, I think this post was mostly written for the family, but I am always happy to tell a friend about how gorgeous and fun Amsterdam is, beyond its space-cakes and shot bars.
Thanks for taking such great care of us! A great start to our trip, and a fantastic ending.
