... ice wine. They call it ice wine because it is harvested late and the temperature has to fall below -7 for 10 days in a row in order for it to be made. We had the opportunity to buy some but I didn't think that I would be able to lug it around everywhere I go. Dinner was in the hotel tonight because there wasn't really anything else around, when I got to dinner a few people from the group had decided they would try and attempt a record of 2600 shots ...
... out for a small walking tour of the city. Suffice it to say, there is literally nothing to do in Essen besides essen (german verb for eating - classic joke). But actually, the city center was completely empty and the highlight of our excursion was a stop at the Panic Room - a famous bar that is "slanted" and not just when you are tipsy. The next day we were driven to the Villa Hügel. Unfortunately it was ...
I was beginning to wonder if I would make it; good call on bailing out on Heathrow. I left the airport after flights #1 and #2 from London to Amsterdam were cancelled. After I left the airport, flights #3 and later #4 were cancelled too.
If I hadn't left and taken the train under the Channel, I would have spent the night at Heathrow - yuk
... at 11am too! But when I arrived back at the hostel Shelley was there, also a little scarred, and we set off to explore Amsterdam. Amsterdam is a gorgeous city, the architecture and the canals are just beautiful, we walked around for hours looking at the different houses. Few things we learnt – they all have a hook sticking out at the top of them to help move the furniture in and out because the staircases are too narrow, ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Tourist Inn Amsterdam
Clean, basic, friendly, cheap
If you're in Amsterdam and don't plan to spend much time in your room, which is pretty functional, this makes an excellent base, convenient for the canal district, Jordaan, and trams. Big breakfast means you don't need to eat all day! Good VFM !
i was also found by a staff member of brian... great place! super friends/ funny english staff. Great eggs in the morning! I will go again!
Couldn't have asked for anything more...
No sooner did we get off the train we found a place to stay. A staff member of Hotel Brian found us and showed us the hotel. It was clean and in a great part of the city. No curfew and their vending machine has Heineken for 1 euro! Free breakfast in the morning was nice... the shared facilities were clean but I suppose they could have been cleaner. They also have towels and free internet. For 20 euros a night, you cannot beat Hotel Brian.
Go there only if you don't have any other choice
If you dont have any other choice and you are in desperation ofsearching ,just go there but only for one night.The rooms are horrible for the money they want. AVOID to stay there,please!
Quality Digs, great!
me and 2 companions stayed at this hotel from 04/05/03 till 07/05/03 and all of us were as pleased as punch!I will definatly recommend and be using this hotel again.The only downside, and it is such a small one, is that our triple room was at the very top of the building with quite steep stairs. and when your stoned it can be a bit tricky! :)the Staff were amazing and so helpful. Blinding.
You must be kidding...
I can't believe some of the review for this place! Were they written by the staff?! When we stayed here it was filled with dodgy characters in the 'lobby', the shared bathroom facilities were terrible and grubby and the lock on the door barely worked. We stayed one night, and we were gone!
More than I expected
I really couldn't imagine there being a better hostel for the money. Firstly, the location is excellent (on a quiet canal 5 minutes from central station). The staff was friendly and fixed us a great breakfast every morning. Free internet and sat TV were also bonuses after along day of running around amsterdam. The rooms are small but with the location being so good, we didn't spend much time in our room anyway.
Good location, friendly staff
Looking for a place outside the red light district we found this hotel. rooms were clean and staff great, also other guests made the stay better than expected
Calling me back...
I visited in 2000, stayed a couple of nights. This place is a mere 20 minutes walking from Central Station. It's right along one of the canals, we even had a canal-view room. The people there were laid back, down to earth folks. Everything was clean and lovely. The common room on the main level is quite entertaining. :)I left a pair of shoes there I'd bought new before my trip. They didn't really fit right. Did you get them?
More than full!
Stayed their a couple of years ago and am going to go back very soon. Clean and tidy, easy going staff and legendary breakfasts if you can get up prior to 10 am. NO hassles and a good location make staying in hotel brian most pleasant and whats more, like the budgie its cheap. Oh and they got satalite tv!
