Monday 20.06.2011 - we rode out of Whitby in glorious sunshine and headed the 65 miles south to Hull where we would board our ferry, The Spirit of Rotterdam for the overnight voyage to the Hook of Holland.

We parked the P-D in the Princes Quays shopping centre in downtown Hull and killed several hours before we rode out to the ferry …

And what is jenever? According to Wikipedia, "Jenever (also known as genièvre, genever, peket, or in the English-speaking world as Holland gin or Dutch gin), is the juniper-flavored national and traditional liquor of the Netherlands and Belgium, from which gin evolved."

It felt like I was coming home after my adventure here in the fall
of 2006. Little bits etched their way back into my memory as I saw
the jagged symmetrical architecture of the buildings, the European
fashion statements walking down the streets, and the special bike
lanes you had to beware of – or be hit.

I again fell in love with the little alleys filled with shops. A
long line of umbrellas waited outside the ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Prins Hendrik Amsterdam

    Great Service, Great Food

    from

    We stayed at this Hotel in july 2004.

    We were on the road with our motor-bike and it was because of the great service on their terrace that we decided to check in at the hotel.

    The rooms are clean and very big (for only a 3 star hotel) We where especially surprised by the gentle man at the reception, we asked for a good price and the possibility to safeley park our motor. (we forgot our bike-lock)

    He called for the manager for advice and it turned out that we could lock our bike with the bike of the manager. All in all he spent half an hour just to help us. If you ever go to Amsterdam, go to this friendly Hotel, try the delicious "dutch peasoup" and ask for Mr Sofan if you need any help !!!

    Proberbly the best 3 star in Amsterdam.

    from

    This Hotel has real Dutch character. It is staffed by locals, who are by and large, very friendly and helpful. As other reviewers have stated one of its biggest plus points, is its very central location. The tram, bus and and train station are all two minutes walk. Also very handy for late night bars , restaurants and the Red Light Area.

    Good value for money!

    from

    Stayed here for 3 nights in July 2004.

    Very close to Centraal (train) station.

    Hotel room was very spacious and bathroom etc...was clean and tidy..

    Only gripe was that there were no tea making facilities!!!!

    Breakfast WAS included.However it was a little boring especially being vegetarians!

    So we had to indulge in the old Continental style...ie Bread,croissants,etc...

    But overall a good choice and reception team were helpful where required.

    Not TOO close to the notorious RED LIGHT for all you families!

    Great hotel

    from

    stayed here on30th july till 1st of august. after having a truly bad experience at the amsterdam city hotel we went to this hotel at eleven at night they found us a room which turned out to be an apartment the hotel is very clean tidy and the hotel security superb the staff could not be more kind and considerate after our bad experience in the first fifteen minutes of our stay in amsterdam

    Great place, nice people

    from

    I stayed at the Prins Hendrik Hotel for a week in July 2004 and liked it a lot. The location is great, right in the middle of the city, close to all forms of public transport, which makes it easy to travel around to all the interesting places in and around the city. There's a cosy bar in the hotel too, and a fine restaurant. Some of the staff were reserved, but not rude. Others were very cooperative and friendly. The room was more than OK and clean. It's a nice 3 star hotel for a reasonable price. A nice thing is that it is located in a few 16th century canal houses, which gives it character. I think it's not an average hotel, it's more than that. Next time I will definitely stay there again!

    Well located and above average

    from

    Getting to Amsterdam early in the day and still having to wait around 4/5 hours for check-in time was not funny at all. As soon as I arrived, I called the hotel and told them about the situation. They asked me to give them an hour. After an hour, I checked-in and didn't have to wait for 12 pm. It was a snowy day, so it was great to get out of the train station and into the hotel in some minutes. I had a good room in the second floor with a big bathroom. My room was heated and I stayed there for a week in February. I cannot complain about that. The room was quite big. For the price, I think it was really good since in Amsterdam it is hard to find something nice for less.

    Not a good choice

    from

    The hotel decor reminded me of my college dorm. Terrible mattress, old worn carpet, thin walls, a smoky smelling room (though it was supposedly non-smoking) and a mediocre breakfast. I've stayed in much nicer hotels for less money in Amsterdam.

    Nice Hotel

    from

    The rooms we had 101 & 106 were fine. The hotel is nicely located across from the Centraal Station, and about 2 blocks from the Dam Square. It is nice to be across from Centraal for all the trams.

    Good location

    from

    Trying to find an inexpensive hotel in downtown Amsterdam was challenging but I finally decided on this hotel. My husband and I stayed here in Feb. 2004 The only thing I can say good about this place was that the location was great for getting around town (across from Central train station) and the rooms were clean. However, there is a lot of construction going on around the hotel and noise can be a problem. Also, we were assigned a room on the 3rd floor that looked more like a room in our parents basement. Low ceilings and dark walls were only part of the unusual decor. Of course we were hoping to get a room like we saw on their website but unfortunately that wasn t the case. We had lots of luggage and had to struggle getting our luggage down the steps to the door of the room. Also, the radiator didn t kick on the first day we were there. When I complained to the front desk that we were freezing and couldn t get the radiator to turn on, I was told that it wasn t cold enough outside yet to turn on the furnace in the basement. It was 36° that day! Also something we found strange was that the front desk wanted us to turn in our room key every time we left the hotel.

    Great location

    from

    No need to take a tram or taxi to your hotel. This medium sized hotel is right across from Central Station. Upon arrival at Central Station using a commuter train ride of only 20 minutes from the airport, simply step across the canals and into your room. My expansively windowed good size room overlooked Central Station (illuminated at night). The hotel encompasses several small buildings. It is right on the edge of the Red Light District, many music venues, coffee (smoke) shops, bars, restaurants, etc, etc. The staff was reserved, almost to the point of being French, but gave me no hassels even after I kept running in and out throughout the night making the desk clerk get up and open the entry door. Breakfast was average.
