... and doing a striptease. That was followed by a couple of people doing it on stage. Throughout the entire 1.5 hours we were there, there were 3 dudes in front of us that kept giggling non-stop..they were cracking us up. The show works in some humor and was funny at some parts even when it tried to be serious. . Every part was obviously choreographed and there was a large audience. A large majority of the audience was Asian ...
I started the morning with pancakes and champagne over Skype with a beautiful man, before hurrying off toward the Amsterdam Hermitage museum which opens at 10AM. On the way an elegant white and black canal bridge started being raised as I crossed it. The guard hurried us pedestrians to the other side and then I watched as the age-old tradition of bridge-raising unfolded before me. A long, tired looking vessel made its slow ...
... My connections between each of my trains were really quick (less than 10 minutes) so I already knew that all three of my next trains wouldn't work out. However, once we got to this other German city and I went to information and they were able to re-book all of my trains without having to charge me. So, this new itinerary got me back to Linz about 3 hours later than I had planned, but at least they didn't make me pay for a whole new ticket.
After that everything has ...

This was confirmed when it advised that we reached our destination when we were quite obviously on a gravel track in the middle of a field. Hmm. We tried again and this time we made it to the ferry terminal. Point of interest here, both times we made it to the ferry terminal quite a bit earlier than our departure time. Both times we went through check-in, and scored ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Agora Hotel Amsterdam
Great location, wonderful staff.
The Agora is a cozy hotel with warm, friendly, helpful staff. The location beats that of the major expensive chain hotels. We had a quiet room facing the courtyard, which had plenty of space for the extra bed we needed. The breakfasts are very nice. Staff helped us in many ways, including helping us figure out how to get to some unusual places for a tourist (like Six Flags Holland for my roller coaster buffs).
Charming og central
We spent 4 nights in hotel Agora from 15. - 18 april 2004 and were most satisfied with both the central location in Amsterdam and the most carming wiew over the Amstel canal right outside our windows. The stairs are a bit of a challenge but the rest were just as we hoped ore better. The breakfast is good and the staff nice and helpful. And they changed towels every day in a small but delicate bathroom. We want to go back soon, and will of course stay at hotel Agora if possible. From Heidi Tokle Poverud and 4 friends from Norway
Great Place to stay!!
This hotel was a great place to stay. When I return to Amsterdam I am sure that I will stay here again. Good rates..like other reviewers have said, the stairs are a pain, but the staff more than makes up for this. Breakfast included was more than enough to get me started on a wonderful day in Amsterdam. I will be sure to tell me friends if they go to AMS they have to stay here. Great location and access to anything you need.
Stayed May 24-31st. Good times!!!
First Class Stay at the Agora: 22-24 May 2004
We have just come back from a stay in Amsterdam at the Hotel Agora. We have nothing but praise for the hotel and consider it to represent excellent value for money. The room we stayed in was of a good size with a comfortable bed with spotlessly clean bed linen. The bathroom was also spotless, very well equipped and again of a reasonable size. However, being in a very old canal house it is very narrow and steep to reach the higher level rooms so this needs to be a consideration for those with walking difficulties. The breakfasts were huge comprising meats, cheese, eggs, cereals, toast, rolls, juice and coffee, and served in a lovely breakfast room full of flowers and with a view over a very pretty garden. We also found all the staff very friendly and extremely helpful and offered to hold our luggage on the last day without even being asked. The hotel is located on a nice quiet part of the Singel, but near to all the main attractions. We will definitely use this hotel again and happily recommend it.
Pleasant place, great location
Try to avoid the tiny attic room -- it's quite a haul and kind of claustrophobic. But the breakfasts are nice, the staff is very friendly, and the location simply can't be beat. (Oh, like a lot of Amsterdam hotels, the higher floors are probably not good for those who have trouble with stairs!)Dan
Not the cheapest in town, but probably worth it. Clean as a pin, perfect location, friendly and helpful staff, and good breakfasts included. Tram stop is 200 feet away. Be prepared to hump your luggage up winding stairs, as there is no lift, but this is probably necessary for a canal house hotel. Would stay there again without hesitation.
Best In Amsterdam!!
I have stayed at The Agora over six times.
The location is superb
The breakfast is fantastic
The canal rooms have great views
The owners are delightful and very helpful!!
As far as I am concerned it is the ONLY place to stay in Amsterdam
Hotel Agora has it all
We stayed at Hotel Agora twice in early April, for three days each. The staff was helpful and available, yet respected privacy. Agora was a quiet respite from touring. Not fancy, but comfortable and easy. They were happy to store some of our luggage while we took a 3-day side-trip to Germany. The private bath was modern with fixtures that were friendly to U.S. travelers (some hotels in Europe are a little more...adventurous.)
Hotel Agora's best feature is the location. It is right in the center of it all-- no more than a 20 or 30 minute stroll to just about any of the sights. Tram stop just a few meters down the street and grocer around the corner for snacks. The Floating Flower Market is across the street. Cross Singel and you're in the heart of Spui, home of Hoppe Cafe (try the bitterballen) and some great bars and coffeeshops (yes, THOSE coffeeshops-- Kamer was our favorite). Casa di David is also a great nearby Italian restaurant.
Will happily stay at Hotel Agora again!
A Pleasant Stay
I stayed at the Hotel Agora from April 22, 2003 until April 28, 2003. I had a very pleasant stay. The hotel staff were very helpful and friendly.The breakfast was very good but was exactly the same every day.I would definately recommend this hotel!
A Beautiful Meeting
My family and I in July 2001 choose to stopover in Holland on our way back home from a trip to Switzerland.
We had no idea how we would find it after the lovely time we spent in Switzerland.
But we never imagined that our stay especially at the Hotel Agora, Singel 426, 1017 AW, Amsterdam
would be so "beautiful" with the whole of the Hotel staff so careing and full of warmth.
I would like to send Warm Regards to all of them from Pakistan and I hope that all the same staff is still there so that they all get my message of thanks and hope I may be able to meet them again some day soon.
I would highly recommend Hotal Agora for those planning to stay in Amsterdam.
With Best Regards,
