there are some things i do when travelling alone to make sure i stay safe:
-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 …
... over 100 different shots! Anything you could think of they had, they all involved a lot of fire and sparks... Woke up the next morning with 15 minutes until bags to coach with nothing packed! Craziest 15 minutes of my life. But we all made it to the bus lucky enough, most of us still drunk. Such an amazing ender to a unbelievable 45 days!!! Didn't take any scenic photos because I've already taken shitloads ...
... soup we licked our bowls clean – it was so good! We also enjoyed watching the “Bros” at the table next to us with their tiaras and the man of honor in a cheetah print top, pink glitter cheeks and a tutu to top it off!
The next couple of hours were spent wondering the streets as we made our way to Museum plain and to the House of Bols. Living in Nancy has really ruined our abilities to check both ways before crossing the street and bikes, ...
... with “YES THANK YOU. We’re done now.” Also, some of the funnest (is that a word? It is now) evenings are those spent with a bottle of wine and YouTube videos from the late Soviet period.
I've had a really wicked time living in Europe, and I'm so incredibly grateful for the opportunity. I'm not going to lie and say that it was easy - it wasn't easy emotionally or practically sometimes - but it was incredible. Not ...

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