... on where he was, what he was doing, what was going on in this life, and who surrounded him. He basically spent his entire painting life learning and experimenting. He spent a lot of time with his contemporaries; Emile Bernard, Georges Seurat, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, and Paul Gauguin. Van Gogh and Gauguin particularly spent a lot of time together. Gauguin said that a falling out between the two of them caused the ear incident. Van Gogh was not just friends ...
... Some of the staircases were incredibly steep with very shallow steps – more or less like a ladder. You certainly couldn’t visit this place if you were older or had trouble getting around.
After Anne Frank, I went back to the hotel. I ordered lunch on my patio, and then took a long nap – again, longer than intended! I had a ticket purchased in advance for the Van Gogh museum, so that forced me to get out of bed. I trekked over ...
... for a quick nap. We'd been up for about 12hours and walking for hours we needed the rest! After our power nap, we then walked to the House of Bols. For an actually quite fun "adventure in the glamour world of cocktails, liqueurs and genever". It is a museum which is quite interactive. You learn about Lucas Bols who founded the oldest distilled spirit brand in the world in 1575 and discover how your senses lend to your tasting experience, and have fun sniffing 36 liqueurs/genevers ...
Slept in a bit but eventually took the tram down to the prinsengracht and Westerkerk and walked in the sunshine to Pancakes on Beerenstraat for Pannenkoeken...I had cheese and ginger and Wouter had Apple. They were really good and the server was blond, very Dutch and very pleasant. Since the day was so nice we walked around the Jordan area and explored some of the streets around the canals.lots ...
... is as much as I can tell you about the differences. After brekky we were taken on a tour along the Amsterdam canals. There is 100km of canals in Amsterdam. Locks are used to keep out the sea when there are big storms and high tides. The streets and canals were full of rubbish which is a pity for what could otherwise be a very nice city. Those in Venice were much cleaner. Amsterdam has been built in a similar manner to Venice with piles being driven into the bedrock and ...

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