      too expensive, no service

      so overpriced for what you get - which is nothing other than a bed...the service from the staff was non-existent, and you could hear EVERYTHING happening in the rooms next door and above and below...the condition of the hotel is pretty bad

      Historical Traveler Reviews Dikker & Thijs Fenice Hotel Amsterdam

      Not a 4 star hotel for sure!!!

      from

      Is this place for really a 4 star? NO WAY! Really dark room, small indeed and the shower was just as dark. Very strange layout indeed.

      Quite overpriced for what you get. Excellent location and possibly the best thing about the hotel. Hotel staff rarely smile and debited by credit card before even asking me to verify the information. Was wrong and I was in a total hurry to catch my plane.

      I would have rated it average if it was classified as a 3 star hotel but when a hotel is supposed to be a 4 star, I expect and DEMAND more!

      Great cosy hotel

      from

      I went to stay over Valentines weekend with my Mrs, and I was a little wary as I had read some comments on this website. However, some were unfounded...The hotel is easy to get to from Central Station via a short tram ride. The tram stops literally outside the hotel- very handy if you are staggering back at night. Also hotel is close to museums and a big square which is very busy.My room was ver large, had a huge bathroom and overlooked the main street. Go foir a room with a bathroom as they tend to be bigger. Noise was not a problem for me and I didnt need ear plugs as the windows were thick enough. Staff were friendly, helpful and efficient.My gripes: Had a buffet breakfast, though it was continental style. Could have done with more hot items. No tea/coffee making facilities in the room- but there were plenty of coffeshops outside... hehehe.I booked this hotel through the NRC website which gave me the best rates for 2 persons, double room, B+B ?105 pn for us both. NB prices can go to ?280 during high season.

      Bad

      from

      I read a good review from another website and decided to go here. When I arrived and saw the dumpy lobby, very unfriendly rude desk clerk, dark dank hallways, ugly room, no A/C (in the middle of summer), and more of the rude clerk, I LEFT. Go elsewhere.

      Need earplugs

      from

      If your room is on the street side of this hotel you will need earplugs to get any sleep, especially on a Saturday night. The room was fine, the breakfast was good and the staff were friendly but double or triple glazing is definitely needed.

      Great View, Giant Room

      from

      Stayed there for Memorial Day Weekend, 2003 with my girlfriend. The view outside the window was great. The bedroom was unbelievably large.

      There was enough room to fit like a party of 50 people in our room comfortably. The bathroom was nice and clean (even the bathroom floor is comfortable to sleep on when you're flying high). The pay TV was a little silly, but really how much TV are you watching in Amsterdam? The only bad thing about the hotel was the hallways outside the room. The hotel itself doesn't look so great, but the room was definitely super nice. Also, I should mention that this was the only actual hotel in Amsterdam I'd stayed at. But I've stayed in city hotels before, and like I said, it's no 5-star hotel, but the room and view is definitely worth it. Before that was the Flying Pig and the Shelter City (what a nightmare that was!).

      Comfortable bu noisy

      from

      A very clean and comfortable hotel in an excellent location. Breakfast was very good.However constant noise during the night from the traffic outside spoilt our stay. Can I suggest double glazing.

      Exceeded my Expectations

      from

      I was very pleased with this hotel and would stay there again. The staff was very pleasant and helpful. Believe it or not the room was spacious and quiet even though the hotel is conveniently located in a very active area. The windows are double paned.

      Perfect Location!!!!!

      from

      Stayed there in October. Nice Quiet, clean rooms. Perfectly located. Everything's within walking distance and trams pass by every couple of minutes on the corner. Best kept secret. Don't tell anyone!

      Excellent hotel

      from

      we had 3 rooms (5 people) staff are most helpful & we had a wonderful stay, rooms are spotless, spacious & welcoming & the food is great.

      ... I look around the room observing other people, not sure where to look. I wanted it to end as soon as it had started. By my count the half an hour is over, but the lights aren't coming on, then out comes the fruit. The girl patrols the crowd, staring deep into every mans soul, she looks at me and I refuse to look away, don't show her you're scared, she walks off the stage opposite side, she's got three random guys, next .. Jack! I feel like this couldn't get better but, it does. ...

I'm a Student, so my budget for anything designer is pretty much zero to none.I stopped by a store to buy chocolates for my family and then headed back to the Hostel, I was sorting out my suitcase when the 2 girls from Cumbria came in.

      Next stop was the Van Gogh museum, with 4 floors of the artist's original works and life story. While his work is reproduced all over the world, it was incredible to see original paintings right in front of us. Another great perk: they offer a children's audio ...

As Van Gogh's paintings travel, I have seen many of them before so I find the museum's arrangement almost as interesting as the works of art. In one section, Van Gogh's paintings are hung next those of his friends and fellow artists and compared for style and reciprocal influences. On the top floor, the exhibits detail Van Gogh's artistic technique and 'habits'; I learn ...
