... to join up with the rest of the tour group. Spent the morning out and about driving through the various cultural districts. Stopped at the obligatory temple, the Singapore Lion statue, Orchard gardens at the Botanical Gardens - I'm not fussed on orchards but these were absolutely beautiful- and then dropped off at Little India. Lots of souvenir stalls and eateries, but none of them tempted us, as the meals were served up in brown ...
... Camping Zeeburg" about an hour and a half's walk from the centre of Amsterdam, and found somewhere to pitch our tent. For some reason it was cheaper to park our van and pitch a tent next to it than to park our van and just sleep in it. We decided on an area of grass next to a pen of aromatic midget goats. After a successful tent pitching with no erection related arguments, we ...
... all small in how much land they are built on as there is a land tax if you go over a certain area. The flower market is amazing, it goes for miles, and we had a really good tour around it. The auction is all done in room with electronic boards and computers and is deathly quiet and fast. This auction house turns over 4billion plus euros annually. We saw stems selling for odd cents at a time, you weren't just buying one ...
... an hour of photo snapping, we headed down the street to the Heineken Brewery. It was really interesting we learned history of the company and then learned how they make their beer. They only use 4 ingredients and the fermentation process takes 28 days. Then at the end they gave out a lot of the beer and we sat in this really cool interactive room and just talked and enjoyed the freshly brewed "bier". After the Heineken Factory we stopped at a pub right across the street where we had ...
... there were no photos allowed, but we managed to see the original copy of Anne's diary and the bookcase that covered up the staircase from the "actual" business to the hideout.
We ended day three with a little Van Gogh. We were in the neighborhood of the Amsterdam Hermitage museum and decided to check it out. Katherine had wanted to go to the Van Gogh museum but it was closed for renovation. So this was the next best thing. However, we paid almost twice as much to get ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Orlando Amsterdam
We just returned from six nights at this ideal hotel in Amsterdam.
Wir verbrachten hier mehrere Tage und fanden es echt klasse. Unser Zimmer war groß und gut ausgestattet und die Lage ist ruhig, aber günstig. Wir waren hier am Ende einer ausgedehnten Europareise und es war schön, sich auszuruhen und entspannen zu können.
Stayed here for several days and really loved it. Our room was large and well appointed and the location is quiet yet convenient. We were here at the end of an extended European trip and it was nice to be able to spread out and relax.
I stayed at the Hotel Orlando for 3 nights in September 2006. I stayed in 2 different rooms, both very nice, very spacious. Accomodations are pretty standard, but rooms are large and both overlooked the canal. The location is great and most sites, shopping, restaurants are within a short walk. There is also a tram line very close by or the hotel is a short cab ride from Centraal Station. To me, the breakfast was the best part. You are served in a lovely breakfast room and the amount of food was better then any other place I've stayed. I had coffee, cheese and breads with jams or butter, yogurt, egg, juice...i was stuffed each day and was a great way to start the morning. The street was pretty quiet and I felt safe walking at night and I was alone. I would stay here again for sure.
My partner and I stayed at the Orlando for two nights in August, and wouldn't hesitate to go back there again, I've stayed in several Amsterdam chain hotels, and this privately run 5 room hotel was a breath of fresh air.
Best stay in amsterdam
Love this place. Large rooms, great location, quiet. We were there in the middle of a heat wave and the room was very hot. Very few hotels in this price range have ac, but the Orlando does have one room with ac. If you book in the summer, make sure to ask for the one with ac. The owner was great.
A terrific little hotel
We stayed at the Orlando over the Easter period 2005. It is in a lovely quiet location on a canal with transport, restaurants and bars and a minute or so away. It is only about 100 metres from the Amstel and 10 mins walk to the main downtown locations.
Our room (one of only five I think) overlooked the canal and was large, bright and airy and had been recently refurbished with polished floors and a new bathroom. Breakfast was served in a lovely basement room opening out on the canal frontage. The streetscapes around the Orlando are supurb.
Our host Paul was very friendly and helpful and really made us feel at home.
The Orlando is highly recommended.
I stayed at Hotel Orlando for three nights and could not have been happier. I paid 100euro per night and the rooms were huge compared to other hotels in Amsterdam. I am now staying in Hotel New Amsterdam (I booked Hotel Orlando late and they didn't have rooms free for my entire stay, so had to move to another hotel) and although this hotel is fine, it is nothing compared to the Orlando. The Orlando Hotel is a simple boutique hotel with only 5 rooms, but very stylish and everything is done beatifully. Paul, the owner is lovely and very helpful. Although more like a bed & breakfast, it is perfect for a beautiful place to stay right on the canal on Prinsengracht and a casual 10 minute stroll to the city centre.
