Hotel V Frederiksplein
Travel Blogs from Amsterdam
Als wir das erste Mal über Amsterdam nachgedacht haben, hatten wir eine versiffte Drogenstadt vor Augen und somit definitiv nicht vor, dorthin zu fahren. Nach und nach stellten wir aber fest, dass wir in unserem Freundeskreis offenbar beinahe die einzigen waren, die noch nie in Amsterdam waren und so buchten wir einmal drei Tage, um diesem " …
... had to recognise me. Turns out it's the same as placebo for safety outcomes... no seriously... HR of 1.00... umm I've never seen that before. Usually the HR will sit on one or the other side of the line, but this time it just sat on the line... how strange. How disappointing really. We'll have to form a cunning plan really to get funding for that one now... The remainder of the day was a variation of that same presentation really... over an over again. At ...
... time to check in and get decent seats (for Clay's knee), to have some breakfast and so Leah could find the 4th Game of Thrones book. We even made it under weight by a few pounds, even though we brought back a few bottles of booze and spices.
The flight was uneventful and smooth, Customs was a breeze (they have automated customs booths now) and Nat picked us up at the airport.
To sum it all up, one "kick ass honeymoon that we will never ...
... in the same way that I was appreciating the ones I got to look at.
I got given a white plastic wristband with one of those square bar-code things you can scan. I also got given a pack of maps and other goodies, together with a starting time of 6.15am. I was slightly disconcerted to learn that I had to be finished by 5pm, after which you are disqualified. I must have known about it before, but I'd forgotten and the added pressure was disconcerting.

... us out around 1am. Apparently Amsterdam is the city that sleeps. At least on Thursdays.
Despite the crummy weather the next morning, we ventured out to take a view of the Westerkerk, the newly opened Rijksmuseum, and the Anne Frank House. My favorite piece at Westerkerk- the city's largest and most important Protestant church- was the "Burning Bush.' It is a brass and iron construction made to hold prayer candles resembling the burning ...
How has this hotel rated in the past?
Die Zimmer waren extrem klein, aber schön, mit modernem Design. Pluspunkt: Das Bad. Tolles Design, angenehme Grösse, Bodenheizung.
Das Personal war sehr nett. Die Lobby mit "Wachhund" gefiel uns besonders gut.
Das Frühstück war für einen Städtetrip ganz ok. Nicht sehr reich an Auswahl, dafür waren alle angeboteten Lebensmittel gut im Geschmack und vor allem auch in Bezug auf die Temperatur (Brötchen waren warm, Kaffee war heiss, Orangensaft leicht kühl, etc.)
Alles in allem kann man für 50 Euro pro Nacht und Person definitiv nicht mehr erwarten. Nächstes Mal werden wir wieder dieses Hotel buchen.
