... us were rearing to discover Amsterdam further.

The morning saw us aboard the usual canal tour vessel, traversing the canals of the city. While the lack of red lights was wonderful, it seems intersections can still create some mayhem, with a convex mirror adhered to a canal wall and three point turns a necessity at one. The beauty of the canals is even more evident from the water, with imagery such as ...

The UnDutchables

... I followed some vague directions from google maps and surprisingly, found the place. I did pass it once although I figured out pretty quickly not to keep walking.

The setup is pretty bizarre - you check in at the pub section, then you go through a single door back on the street, and climb sixteen precarious stairs to your floor. Try doing that with a huge suitcase! The room is great though, decorated in Indian decor, named the room of 1000 nights. The location is handy ...

Arrivederci and arrival

... to offer him a room should he ever make it to Perth. But I dialled it down to a hearty thanks, and so walked away with pride, directions and marriage intact.

The walk to food was over a few canals, a great way for the children to see what this city is like. It also has a greater symmetry once you're on the inside, making it much easier to navigate and negotiate. We did need to pull up a couple of times for bikes and trams, not quite realising ...

Last day in Amsterdam and arriving in Bruges

... age people continue to actively seek out and torture people because of their beliefs, skin or sexuality. I really think that everyone should pay a visit to that museum or at least read the Diary of Anne Frank because if everyone remembers the story, maybe just maybe, we can prevent such persecution ever happening again. It's a part of our history that we should not forget. The mood was somber in our little two pack... We were so saddened by the story behind ...

Across the sea for the weekend

We took advantage of a Groupon special deal with DFDS Seaways from Newcastle to Amsterdam. Leaving 5pm on the Friday and sailing overnight arriving in Holland at 9am Saturday. Then onto the bus and into Amsterdam to spend 4-5 hours free time before returning.

The crossing over was very calm and there was lots to keep us entertained on the ship including Cinemas, restaurants ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Hestia Amsterdam

    Great location! Great place!

    from

    It's only a minute from Maxeuweplein (Hardrock, Wagamamas, cycle hire etc.) and you can walk all over the city to Jordaan, De Wallen etc. in just a few minutes. It's a great little hotel and, although some people may prefer a bigger international style hotel, an excellent continental breakfast is provided, rooms are spotless and staff are extremely friendly. A great place to stay!

    Great!We loved it-will be going back again soon.By Lynda&David from England

    from

    Myself and my teenage son stayed for a couple of nights during sail 2005 week,after checking out from another hotel in the street.we also had the big triple room with the balcony(very popular that one,and for very good reason too!).

    the room was lovely.comfortable beds and very clean and well decorated . en suite with big deep bath and shower.the staff helpful, friendly and polite.breakfast was good,and we sat in the well kept and pretty garden to watch the wild birds and parrots land on the birdtable.the hotel is in a pleasant peaceful street where there is little noise.A welcome respite from the hustle and bustle of the City.

    we cant wait to go back again when we next go to Amsterdam.

    Good value, we liked it lots...

    from

    A group of 5 of us stayed here at the end of April. My partner and I were in the large room with the balcony, which was a nice surprise. True, it doesn't exactly look over the Vondelpark, but nontheless it is a nice leafy view with some local parakeets/lorikeets (small parroty things!) flying around - lovely!

    Hmmm... why are there such good reviews of this hotel?

    from

    Stayed there at the beginning of April on the basis of positive Tripadvisor and Fodors reviews. Not sure why there are such good reviews for this hotel, so I am writing to balance this out.

    Decent Value, Heavenly Beds

    from

    Just stayed in this hotel for the weekend of March 18-20. I have to say, after just coming from another 2-star hotel in Paris, Hestia was not as charming - felt a little more like a business hotel. But, it was still nice, clean, and you could tell it was recently remodeled. In fact, I could smell the new carpet in our room. We had a great room (#36) in the corner looking towards Vondelpark on one side and rooftops on the other.

    Wonderful place and people.

    from

    The Hestia is a wonderful hotel and the family that runs it are fantastic. After looking over several other hotels we have decided to go back.

    Amazing large room

    from

    Having been to Amsterdam four times in small, cramped rooms, we were delighted with the huge room with balcony. Only complaint was the "seasonal" lack of hot water - take your shower either very early or very late to avoid disappointment.

    Excellent hotel....decent price

    from

    We had been to Amsterdam and stayed at Hotel Hestia. We went in the peak season when the Tulips bloom and it is all colorful. We had a big room as we were 4 adults. The room was very big, superb with its simple decor, spectacularly clean. Towels were changed every day. We had a small extension leading towards a balcony, and that was nice. The Dutch b'fast was just perfect to start your day rolling....being served in a cosy room extending to a courtyard which flowers. The family managed hotel is a very good choice with the price that they charge for the service. I would recommend this hotel to anyone without any hesitation, if your budget suits you. They even have a small elevator, which is lacking in most hotels in Amsterdam, and all hotels usually have small winding and steep stairs. Happy staying in Hestia.....If I come back again, I would definitely go to Hestia.

    One of the reasons I go!

    from

    I love staying at the Hestia because its a small family run hotel. The single rooms are small so I generally get a double for just a little more. I've stayed here for the last 6 years and twice this year. Great Dutch breakfast buffet that looks out into a small courtyard that borders Vongelpark. Just steps away from the "lighten-spleen" and the tram, I find it to be perfect. But don't come to A-dam and expect everyone to jump at your every little request. The Dutch are very "one thing at a time" types, they are very helpfull with planning tours and getting you close to what you may be looking for...Enjoy, but save me a room.

    Just simply great

    from

    I loved this hotel! Although the rooms are a bit small, the very friendly staff and the great location made up for everything! Kisses from Agatha and we will go to the Hestia again next year!!
