-i rarely, if ever, go out at night
-i don't drink
-i certainly don't do drugs
so my first evening in amsterdam i went out at DUSK and saw a sex show, and DIDN'T
DRINK...then i went to a 'coffee shop' and DIDN'T DO DRUGS, i bought 'cake' and …
... 8217;s not Bavaria looking, as the mountains are not as big, but there are mountains and it makes a great setting for a castle. We took a tour of the castle (in German, but with an English translation sheet) took pictures and the band got to listen to me have fun with the German language. I made videos of me saying, ‘wilkommen dans zee Schloss Von Liechtentein.’ What the hell is that? Dans is French, and where does ...
... we were a bit under the weather we didn't do much that afternoon we got there (our hotel room was a bit of a shambles as it had the bedroom and then bathroom without any door separating the two so anytime one of us needed to use the toilet the other had to go out of the room). On the Sunday however, we left to meet one of Dave's Dutch relatives, Charlie, in the Hague where he showed us around the spots for a few hours as he had worked there for 9 years so knew the city ...
... smoke all over, you'll walk past a cafe and get hit with the smell or someone will just walk past choofing away. I'll get out this morning and get some photos before heading back to the airport for my 12 hour flight to Guangzhou, 1.5 hr stopover there and 9 hrs from there to Sydney. So not looking forward to it. Why does Australia have to be so far away from everywhere? Will probably do a quick update when I get home so you all know I made it. Catch ...
... was cool :) There was a lot of walking that followed and VOILA we were at our hostel again. We met the Spanish guys again and chilled with them for a bit. After that, a leisurely stroll through VondelPark was just what we needed. We walked so so much and took some brilliant photos! Ending at the I am sterdam, which was so awesome! We had no more encounters in our room, if you know what I mean (Thank Goodness!) and the next morning off to Brussels we go!

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.
