... sale. So, chances are good, that if you have bought fresh flowers, they came through here.
Today I went to the Rijkmuseum. The Rijkmuseum is the Dutch National Museum. It was founded in The Hague in 1800 and moved to Amsterdam 8 years later. The current building was designed by Pierre Cupyers and was built in 1885. The museum has a collection of 1 million objects or art and history that range from the years 1200-2000 (8,000 of which are on currently on ...
... the cab - winning! OHhh.... You're all hanging to read more about the brownies, right... Well we ate it back at the hotel room after we had organised ourselves and the guy said it was "mellow" so im not sure if it was that or because we were tired after such a big day but we basically just chilled out and then went to sleep haha sorry no crazies stories ...
... theme park extravaganza of marketing material, it was quite the enjoyable experience. We were even given beers. They were Heinekens.
Making our way back to the station we visited a little supermarket to pick up an assortment of snacks to form a mini antipasto meal for the evening. This was most delicious. The goats cheese here is so strong. Almost like blue cheese. It's great!
Cheese. Did we mention cheese ...
... completely spontaneous. I went to Amsterdam with Erin and Amanda, two girls from Texas A&M, and Merve who's from Turkey. We left at 7:00am (more like 7:30 because I woke up late - typical James) to walk to the train station, which was a little rough. Good thing the train ride was about 2 and half hours without a transfer so I got a nice nap in.
We got into Amsterdam at about 11:00am and, without any sort of game plan, began ...
... man dorm room first I took the chance to have a wander around again and get myself acquainted with the city. I checked out a few of the souvenir shops for some little blue and white porcelain canal houses that I knew Gem had liked beforehand but I couldn’t find any that where good. Meeting the boys back at the hostel we had some breakfast. The boys wanted to see Ann Franks house so I walked with them to the house before heading back and ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Falcon Plaza Hotel Amsterdam
Spent only one night.. and will never again.. no heating.. aww.. yes heating but not in my room.. offered mooore blankets.. dirty.. not cheap..
i booked the falcon plaza over the net,i wouldnot stay here again 2 people sharing a room the rooms were to small and dirty,no light in the shower room it was miles from the centre of amsterdam and not in walking distance and the hotel next door looked more inviting.
Good all round hotel
Just got back with 4 friends following our trip away. Quite anxious about this hotel after reading other reviews on this site, however i couldn't fault the hotel in any way. Not as luxurious as our 3 star hotels at home, but considering the cost i think we got what we paid for. The quad room (rm 406) consisting of 4 proper beds with clean linen, laminate flooring, a powerful shower (worth having the room just for this) and clean bathroom. The staff we met were polite and the receptionist was English. Breakfast was continental and loads of it. Filled up before our day out. Considering we only needed to use the room for sleeping, it was more than adiquate. If we should visit Amsterdam in the future i would not hesitate in using this hotel again.
This should be classed as one star hotel
On arriving at the hotel was dismayed to find it quite a dingy dull hotel and on the website it was stated as a modern and well decorated. The rooms were small and dingy expensive for what they were, you would get at least a 4 star hotel in england for the price we paid for this, in fact the week before in scotland stayed at a macdonald hotel and the price was 90 pounds for 3 nights bed and full scottish breakfast and one evening meal in lovely surrounding with swimming pool gym etc. In the room tea and coffee making facities iron trouser press lovely bright rooms with a lovely bar downstairs everything the Falcon Plazer wasnt, for a lot cheaper. Falcon Plazer advertised a bar but there was no bar the only bar was next door at the Ibis which was a nice bar with nice pleasant happy staff unlike the staff out at Falcon Plazer. 3 shared a room at a cost of 60 euros per person per night i think a bit expensive for what we got. Loved Amsterdam had a ball would go again but not to this hotel
Whoever posted the good reviews must be staff. This hotel should not be allowed to class itself as 3 star. The rooms are small and claustrophobic with no drinking water or teamaking facilities. The bathroom was pokey and smelled of wee wee, its hard to sleep with the aroma of urine constantly up your nostrils. Stayed in many Amsterdam hotels and this has to be the worst by far. To top it all I came in after a great night out on the town at 2 am and I was then asked to settle the bill! I said I would do it in the morning and the chappy on reception became quite insistant, we just ignored him and went to bed. Even worse, a friend who was also staying was getting phone calls from reception at 5 am for the key as it was a fire hazard to keep it in the room, Bizzare! The breakfast was very basic and its presentation did not beg an appetite. I am sure it advertised its own bar, not true the bar belongs to the Ibis which did indeed looked so much nicer. This was a busy weekend for Amsterdam as it was holding a big conference so every hotel was booked up. There was no way we could have got a room anywhere else without the help of the police. Other than that had a great time in such a fantastic city.
Disgusting, whole room very dirty & unhygenic, bed and bedspread filthy and bathroom too, cannot think of anything nice to say about this hotel, especially as it is next door to an IBIS hotel, that looked so much nicer!
Do not stay here!
Plenty of tv channels
Stayed here for 3 nights. Was clean except under the bed which was a bit scummy but nothing too upsetting! good bathroom and shower, with lots of towels which were replaced every day. also a tv which had 30 channels of all languages, just in case you can't keep yourself entertained in amsterdam, which i doubt you'd have a problem with. weird decor in the reception/lobby. breakfast was average continental type but plenty of it.
A good qualitywell priced hotel
I have just comeback from a very pleasant stay in Amsterdam - I booked 3 rooms in this hotel online and the price seemd very fair and i was very pleased of the high standards of the hotel and all rooms clean, tidy, good service ,friendly and in a good location of all sights. i will be booking again soon
I have stayed in many European hotels. Some good and some not so good. This was by far the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. The rooms were dingy and dirty. The carpets left our socks BLACK!!The walls had mold & mildew on them. They gave two adults - one bath towel and one face towel. When we asked for another set - it never came.
We quickly checked out and asked for a refund. The front desk processed our credit but needless to say - it has yet to be processed. I strogly advised whomever rates these hotels to rate this as a NO STAR!!!
Couldn't stay a night!
Never stay at this hotel - its tatty, should be condemned, and the staff were extremely rude.Put simply I would not have let my dog stay in the room I was put in, it hasn't been touched since the 60's and it shows, even the linen had holes in it...When I complained and said I was leaving the staff member on the reception desk told me he didn't have time to deal with me as he was eating his dinner, and turned his back on me to do exactly that!We moved next door to the Ibis straight away...
