... we had brilliant views of the city and canals, then our up close view of the diamonds at the factory and showrooms where the diamonds were priced in the hundreds of thousands of dollars, and, finally the sites we saw during our two hour walk around the centre of the city.
It is considered a Tax Haven for many multi National companies and other well known rich persons. We need to thank the Dutch for developing gin, and Greg, Hannah and Ann have enjoyed ...
... so I've never seen anything like it. The crowds of people walking by speaking smatterings of different languages, the way the buildings are laid out, the mix of old and new.
We boarded a tram into the city and found our way into the De Pijp neighborhood, where our AirBNB room awaited us. Our host wasn't at home right at the moment, so we entertained ourselves with a Heineken on a sunny bar patio and watched the colorful bike riders whooshing ...
... Amsterdam, we checked in to our hotel and set off to find the venue. We took the train and then had to walk a long way to cross the Erasmus bridge. There were thousands of fans walking with us. The atmosphere was fun and festive. The downside was there's so much time spent waiting around and in a split second the cyclists pass you by and before you know it, it's over! The following day, the Tour made several loops around the city before heading off ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Residence Le Coin Amsterdam
Hotel! + Staff + :ocation
My god, had a rough time in Amsterdam. Le Coin as my base camp to party around, because it´s in the middle of the middle of the middle of the centre was a great choice. Read about it here on this site. Le Coin shortly said is clean, friendly, polite, helpfull & has spacious rooms. They have smoking and non-smoking rooms , so let them know your preference in front (like I forgot). All questions will be answered by Dmitry and Corina (the staff I met during my visit). I was a girl on my own that time, so they were kind of my backup. Anyway, next time I want one of the rooms with a loft (ever seen hotel rooms with lofts to sleep on? só romantic) to sleep with my boy friend. So, in one word, felt like home.
Immediately felt like home . . . Just stayed there for one night though. Had a nice talk with a little funny, I think Italian, staff member. They called him ´Mario´. Looked like the computer game I played when I was young 'Super Mario Bros'. Bumped in to him a million times. Always smiling, always friendly. That´s actually the first thing I remember about this lovely little hotel.
I stay at this hotel everytime I am in Amsterdam. Why? Because the staff is extremley nice and helpful. The decor is modern and comfortable. There are kitchenettes in everyroom (helpful when you don't want to eat out every meal!) and the supermarket is only about three blocks away. The floor is heated. The bathrooms are up to date and always clean. The building itself is authentically Amsterdam but renovated so you don't fall down the steep stairs. There is a roof balcony I discovered last time I was there which was really cool. And to top it all off it is in the absolutly best location! Just a short tram ride or nice walk to the train station, flower market across the street, shopping, museums, resturaunts, coffee shops, historical places all just steps from your door. Oh yeah and if you get sick (which I did on one trip) the doctors office is literally next door. I love this hotel and you will too I promise!
We have just returned from spending 4 nights at the Residence Le Coin and we were happy with our stay there.
Perfect Amsterdam Experience
This is a great little hotel with an ideal location, directly across the street from the posh Hotel d'el Europe. I requested a twin room with a canal view and got exactly that! Cute room with a kitchenette and living area, plus a little loft area with a bed. Views of the Munt tower and the canal outside my window. The rooms aren't gorgeous, but they are clean and perfect for someone who doesn't want to spend all the time in the hotel room. The staff are very friendly. I never had the hotel breakfast, as it's much easier and cheaper just to go to a nearby cafe for a croissant. You just can't beat the views and location for this price.
We stayed at this hotel for 4 nights recently and I have to say it looks much better on their website than it actually is.
Great Little Hotel
Stay in Feb '05. Nice sized room, good staff. It's right in the centre so everything is on the doorstep. Would definately stay again.
June 2005-- We stayed in a fabulous location, at The Hotel Residence le Coin, on Nieuwe Doelenstraat, directly across from the five-star Hotel de l'Europe, down the street from the Hotel Doelan. A great neighborhood in the heart of old Amsterdam. We had two connecting twin rooms for our family of four. A perfect set-up for us.
A+++ very nice
I will stay again in a week for a month, this will be my 5th time in the hotel. Stuff is nice and will help out and nice about it:-) The rooms seem to be of nice size and clean, well very clean. Rooms come with a nice bath room and bath tub and shower, each room has a refrigerator, stove top coffee make and all the utensils you will need. If you took the money it cost to stay here and played it to some other hotel you would not get a place like this, " everything you would want out the front door " and a really safe place.. i love it and boy am i pickey!!!
Location...Location...Location. And price!
A wonderful business class hotel in an incredible location. The staff, the rooms and the price are all exceptional. Going back soon and already have my room reserved.
