... where we should go.
As we walked up, window 1 closed but we were next in line at #2, however. Andy asked the teller:
Andy: "Where can I get round trip tickets to Central Station?"
Teller: "Lanes 1 and 2."
Andy: "Great!. May I please have 2 round trip tickets to central station?"
At which point she wordlessly grabbed her CLOSED sign and slide it in my face.
Andy: "You're closed?"
... bike path targeted me and my poor bike riding skills. He came up behind me tooting the horn, I was unable to pull over on the road so I had to switch sides when he continued tooting I tried to pull over to the right at a fast pace and being unable to use the pedal brakes on the ****** bike I stacked it commando rolling onto the pedestrian path grazing my hands and ankle. These stayed swollen for days and provided the boys with hysterical laughter after ...
... it would not wait, and we would need to find our own way back if the bus left without us. Our first stop was Volendam, a small lakeside town about an hour from Amsterdam. The Netherlands is not that big, so we crossed about a third of the country to get there. The countryside is as flat as you have been told, criss crossed with channels and canals, and verdantly green with spring grass and flowers. The particular area we drove through mainly raises livestock since it ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Holiday Inn Amsterdam
We stayed at the Holiday Inn for New Year's weekend, 12/30 - 1/1/05. When checking in, we were immediately upgraded to the Executive floor without asking (they may have been out of non-smoking rooms). The room was clean and spacious, with a nice view, and the king sized bed was very comfortable (such a relief after the tiny, lumpy bed at our hotel in Rome). It's a few miles from the city center, but it's a very short walk to the tram, which will take you to town in about 4 minutes. The trams shut down before 12am, so on NYE, we took a taxi back to the hotel for around 16 Euros. The staff went out of their way to give us directions, recommendations, and were altogether very helpful. We had a great experience at the Holiday Inn, and look forward to staying there again next time we visit Amsterdam.
I have been regularly using this hotel for the last 3 years now for business purposes as we have an office close by.
The hotel is situated some way from Amsterdam city centre. A taxi is not cheap.
However, there is a tram stop just outside the hotel.
The hotel looks ghastly from the outside and needs renovation. It is surrounded by a horrible building site. The rooms were ok - nothing to write home about.
The restaurant was good.
Disappointing experience overall. This is not a five star hotel, despite the nice decor in the lobby and bar ... unless you consider the prices of the drinks in the mini-bar etc (3.95 E for a bottle of water)! The ONLY benefit is the proximity to the conference center. Even then, central Amsterdam is only a 15 minute commute by underground and is easily done. I relocated to the Marriott and was very pleased with my decision. Recommendation: stay at the Marriott!!!
Family visit to Amsterday
My family (2 kids plus 2 adults in room) and I visited Amsterday for a short weekend break. Stayed at the Holiday Inn in Amsterdam.
The rooms were well appointed and clean. The hotel was also nicely done. The location (near the RAI convention center) was a significant distance from the center of Amsterdam but the tram station was only a few hundred meters from the hotel.
My only complaint was the attrocious price for breakfast at the hotel restaurant (our plan did not include breakfast) and the size of the room (liveable very tight for 4 people, would not have wanted to stay for more than a few nights).
Good Hotel with easy access to trains and trams
A good hotel reasonably priced with a railroad and tram station just a block away for short easy trip into Amsterdam sites or to the airport.
Stayed on the executive floor which is quiet and nice with a great view. Food was on the expensive side. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The in room safes did not work on the 14th floor but there where laptop sized safety boxes available at the front desk. Felt safe in and around the hotel.
I was having trouble finding a hotel in Amsterdam that was fairly nice and had a reasonable price. I decided to check out Holiday Inn's main website to see if they offered any resonable rates on a hotel in Amsterdam. I came across the Holiday Inn Amsterdam.
We spent one night at the hotel in August. We found the hotel staff to be extremely friendly and helpful. The hotel is conveniently located on a tram line that travels to downtown every few minutes, and next to a train station. It cost only 2 Euro to get to the airport from the hotel on the train - and it took only 9 minutes.
The rooms were clean, and breakfast very tasty and plentiful. We recommend it!
