... which really came to life in there. We decided to take the red bus tour to central station because of course sitting on the top of an open top bus is always fun!! From central station we took a canal cruise. We sauntered down the canals exploring Amsterdam's waterways. It's amazing how they used dams to create Amsterdam. We passed the beautiful church named after the patron saint of seafarers St. Nicholas which they say protects the harbor. We also had to have ...
... to get ready for our farewell dinner and boat cruise. Dinner was at the Sea Palace restaurant, a Chinese restaurant, delicious banquet of food spread across a lazy Susan. It was quite funny though, half of our group either weren't at dinner or barely ate because they were too baked from whatever substance they had during the day. So when it got to the boat cruise, which had unlimited beer and wine, there weren't too many people drinking. ...
... mad as well. We spent about 2 hours there and it was well worth it...recommended to all you culture vultures out there.
We then spent quite a lot of time walking around the city, we went to the flower market ...mostly selling bulbs at this time of year. We also attended the Flea Market, which was a bit grubby but I'm pleaased to report we didnt take any fleas away with us......well hopefully not.
We must have walked all over this interesting city...and in the end ...
... Now if you are wanting a cup of coffee or tea, you need to go to a cafe, not the 'coffee shop'. Our tour guide recommended The Grasshopper. This building has 3 stories, the higher up you go the more expensive. We went to the second floor, in the middle. Kim and Jim came too. Seeing we were first timers, it was recommended 2 people share 1 piece of brownie, so this is what Kim and I had. Sam went straight for a big smoke. ...
... and wanted to come back to buy something later.
We left and walked up the road, there was a tulip museum with everything tulip, from real growers to cute little plates with paintings on them.
Next was the cheese museum. That was my favourite place, they had so much cheese to sample. We had pink cheese, black cheese, blue cheese, goats cheese. Ohh my all the cheese you could think of, we went around the little shop a few times trying the cheese two to three times, then we paid ...

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.
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...
