          Good base for family travel to Amsterdam/Keukenhof

          This hotel was spacious and modern. It had a large recreation area (atrium) geared to young families, an inviting restaurant open to an atrium and a pleasant bar. We chose the the hotel as a base for a three day visit to the Amsterdam area because we had IHG points to use and we were looking for a hotel that would accomodate three adults (my husband, adult son and I). The hotel is about 20 minutes from the Amsterdam airport by train.

          We arrived on a holiday (King's Day) so the hotel's free airport shuttle wasn't running. We took a cab to the hotel about 5 minutes from Leiden Centraal. We arrived shortly after noon and received an early check in. Our room was on the outside, not in the atrium. The room was quiet and looked out over a small car park bordered by some green space along a canal where swans were swimming. We were on the second level with a door facing a covered "porch"-- a traditional motel arrangement. The room was modern and spacious with a refrigerator and microwave, Two double beds and modern, clean bath.

          After freshening up from our overnight flight, we purchased tickets at the hotel desk to Keukenhof and took the public bus back to Leiden Centraal to connect with the express bus to Keukenhof. The bus stop nearest the hotel was a five minute walk across from the McDonald's nearby. We were at the gates of Keukenhof within an hour of leaving the hotel. We were able to spend more than 3 hours in the gardens before heading back to the hotel around 7 pm.

          We used the bus system several times to and from Leiden Centraal, the free hotel shuttle twice (only runs in the mornings on weekdays) and the taxi for arriving and our departure. Train travel to Amsterdam was less than 30 minutes.

          We chose not to eat dinner or breakfast at the hotel restaurant, but did have two nice, quiet meals at the hotel bar after our daytrips. My one regret is that we did not make it into Leiden itself during our 3 day stay. It was on my list and we hope to return one day. The hotel is near the university and the area around it is a maze of construction and development.

          For us, the hotel was a clean, safe space to rest after daytrips around the area. The main draw for us was that it accomodated our family and we received a "bargain" using our IHG (Platinum Member) points. It appears that the space hotel is geared to young families and visitors to the university. The staff was alert and helpful. And I can recommend it as a good option for a visit to the area.

          Our flight from Detroit landed at Amsterdam's Schipol Airport at 5:00 am EST, 11:00 am local time. Navigating Schipol was a breeze. Entry to the country was swift and we had no checked baggage. The train station is contained within the airport. Within 30 minutes of landing we had figured out the ATM to get some initial Euros, purchased tickets for …

          ... reach the second bedroom/laundry/storage room it is another 5 steps down. Now you can understand why poor Jason has been relegated to the couch for the last few weeks with his torn Achilles tendon. Maneuvering the steps within the apartment with crutches is treacherous! It was great seeing them again and we spent the evening catching up.

          The next day, Aryn had to work, so Dale and I did some exploring in Leiden. It was Wednesday, so during ...

We surfed and body surfed, swam with dolphins, fished for piranhas, fed ...

          Day 2: April 7
          Today was a full day of happenings. We started out by trying to find a dutch pancake restaurant, which turned out to not n open until noon, which was when we were supposed to be going on a bike tour of the city. So we ended up at a place called, get this, La Place. Good food for low costs, they had a great breakfast deal and I would be tempted to go back for lunch too. ...

Mum had been before, but it was my first visit. I found it really interesting and couldn't believe how long they managed to stay in such a small space with so many people in it. The fact that people stayed so quiet while walking round the rooms added to the ...
