... made it to Amsterdam. Got yelled at by the bathroom maid and she pushed Molly so we said f you and found a different one. Much nicer. We first found a "coffee shop" and got into the Amsterdam spirt and got a lighter from the coffe shop. than we walked around the red light district and took lost off pictures. We got onto a train at 7:28 and got to the airport to find our flight delayed. Molly had to check her bag, fingered crossed nothing goes wrong. Waiting to board flight to ...
As the early morning sun streamed through our window, we woke to a ship-wide wakeup song through the PA and a breakfast announcement in Dutch, then thankfully, English. Laying in bed looking at the weak sunlight over the open water was quite the lovely sight so early in the morning. After a breakfast buffet of eggs, bread rolls, strange yoghurt and even stranger meats we were ready to disembark. Leaving the ship, we boarded a train to Rotterdam, fairly sure that we ...

Amsterdam has a great range of shops for those who love a bit of retail therapy or if shopping is not your thing then you could always rent a boat in one of the canals and see the city at your own pace. Being so popular Amsterdam has a massive range of accommodation, from hotels, hostels and guest houses to boat rentals and even camping. Most ...

It's just a pity that this 'family' will all head our separate ways this time tomorrow. This will be a sad occasion. What we learnt today: 1. Australia has excellent laws when compared to The Netherlands regarding some topical issues. 2. A person can eat too many sweet treats in a 2 week period. 3. Free ferry trips are ...

It's so foggy this morning, but the sun is out again. The weathers been really good while we've been in Amsterdam. Hope it stays good for the rest! Oh, and to answer the Q in the title, Holland is a province of the Netherlands, and Amsterdam is within that province. So it's in ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel de Lantaerne Amsterdam
Excellent Friendly Hotel
I just stayed at the Hotel De Lantaerne from Monday to Friday and was very very happy with the quaility of the hotel for the money i paid.
The hotel is situated in a great place, along the canal and very central with trams near by. The atmosphere in the area of the hotel is superb.
The staff in the hotel were very helpful and friendly and there is a bar downstairs that is open almost all night which serves food!!
The hotel is also immaculate with everything you need in the room and the delicous breakfast is a real bonus which is included in the price of your room!
I visit Amsterdam every year and will certainly be staying at the Hotel De Lantaerne next year and the following years after that!
I stayed in this hotel in February, after spending a few nights closer to Centraal Station in a 4 star hotel, this one surpassed my expectations.
I have been in Amsterdam about 20 times and have found that the Lantaerne Hotel is way above average for the price you pay. The staff are always polite and helpful. Yes, there are steep stairs, but that is Amsterdam. I always request a room no more than one flight up. They also have a few rooms on the entry floor. The location is wonderful.....right on a canal...and a few steps to the tram. Breakfasts are good and the hotel is very clean.
Very friendly hotel
I stayed at the Hotel Lantaerne 2 weeks ago over the weekend.
Amsterdam itself is a beautiful city and the weather was perfect as well. Hotel De lantaerne is a very friendly hotel with great staff and basic, but clean and nice rooms. A special thanks to the girl in the reception who gave us a lot of useful ideas of what to do during our stay.
We lived on the fourth floor with very steep stairs up to the room, but it actually did not matter, just good to get some exercise (!=) but I would not recommend this for older people.
Overall, Lantaerne is a great hotel and its location just could not be better!
Thank you very much!

Great Hotel....great value
Small, quaint hotel, with a friendly staff, willing to share information with you. On the advice of the hotel owner, we visited our favorite town on our Honeymoon....Brugge, Belgium...and we would have never known about it if the gentleman at this hotel did not tell us.
This hotel is totally Amsterdam and totally Europe!!! We enjoyed our stay!
Love the Lantaerne
My partner and I have stayed at this hotel a number of times at various times of year, most recently in November 2002 and February 2003. The staff have always been extremely friendly and very helpful. The hotel has been undergoing renovations (most recently the front desk/lounge), but has a charming "Old Amsterdam" feel to it. The stairs are steep, so this hotel is better suited to people without much luggage! There is a delicious breakfast available in the basement.
I stayed at this hotel in 2001. I thought this hotel was absolutely charming! It has a wonderful owner and operator, the staff friendly and helpful, and an excellent location. The stairs were steep but I didn't mind. Room no. 14 was ever so charming with the small balcony and french windows overlooking the canal, although the carpets were a bit worn and burned. The breakfast room was warm and sunny, inviting, quiet - absolutely European. The breakfast generous and tasty. Of course, there are lots of young party people staying at the hotel because of it's location. This is to be expected I think. Also, there was some party noise from the Melkweg, again this should be expected when a hotel is centrally located in a 'party district'. However, I would definitely stay here again. Thank you de Lantaerne! I had a great time!! and don't forget to buy the very nice owners a big bouquet of flowers.
De Lantaerne: totally Amsterdam
This is the perfect hotel for those who travel light and do not mind
walking up a steep flight of stairs. Located just a block from
Amsterdam's premier night life area, Leidseplein, on a little dead-end
quay at the intersection of two canals, right across the water from a
police station, the hotel has more Amsterdam atmosphere than almost any
other. And although there is 24-hour entertainment at a stone's throw,
it is quiet enough to sleep with your windows open.
We found the staff friendly (to kids and adults) and helpful, the breakfast ample, the beds not great but acceptable, and the clientele varied and interesting. And again, you can't find a better location!
Awful Hotel--Awful staff
When we got to this hotel after a long flight, and walked up the even longer flight of stairs--I cried. what a hole! to top it all off, a few months later, I noticed they had charged my credit card again. It took me three months to get AmEx to fix this. The hotel never responded to them either.
I say they are a bunch of criminals.
Hotel De Lantaerne
We just got back from Amsterdam.
The Hotel De Lantaerne - one of the lesser hotels - one step above a youth hostel - gouged us for over $160 a nite. This was 50% above their standard "rates" and twice what they advertised online.
We questioned the increased rate when at check in. Unable to find alternate sleeping arrangements (we were there for some meetings and flew in on a red eye). We were stuck with the much too high price.
I truly do not appreciate the last minute price jackings by third rate hotels (others in the hotel had a larger room and paid less!!!)
Beware traveller - stay away from Hotel De Lantaerne - lousy rooms, rates run the gamut and you too could be caught paying 4 star hotel rates for a dump!
