... their for a few. After ordering a bite of food there was no returning to our planned tame evening. Instead began an evening which involved putting on a disguise to avoid paying 50 cents for the toilet. We befriended a group of Dutch boys who were away in Amsterdam as tourists for the weekend. After another couple of gin and lemonades they invited us to a Dutch bar - when we heard it was a karaoke ...

A 5 am start next day and off to the White Cliffs of Dover for our ferry trip to Calais. The hour and a half went quickly. We enjoyed a delicious lunch at the Brasserie dining room and soon wewere heading for the bus and driving through Belgium into The Netherlands. Freeway all the way, very flat and green, crops on either side of the road. We had no sooner entered The Netherlands and we were seeing the old fashioned ...

This year marks 150 since the company opened up, the original Mr Heineken starting it up at 22 with no idea about brewing. These Dutch folks have good initiative, don't they! Some experts were pulled in, including a bloke who was fundamental to what the brew was and is - Professor Eilon, who ...
So as an extension of Laurence's 30th birthday we decided to head to Amsterdam to celebrate in style.
We started the day with having to go to work but since there was like no one in the office I snuck home at 11.30am. At around 2.30pm we headed off to Heathrow airport and met up with Kristy- so completes the first half of our travel companions, Claire, Larry, Kristy and I.

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Luxer Amsterdam
Luxer, just another word for Heaven!!
Stayed here in June for 3 nights and the only downside was having to move on to another hotel as it was fully booked for the weekend. Very friendly/warm staff who go out of their way to be helpful. Had a nice single room which was larger than I was expecting. Cable TV, very comfy single bed, modern bathroom, great natural light due to window (shame the view was somewhat restricted), electronic key card for room. Room was cleaned every day and you can come and go as you please as always have someone at the desk (at night they buzz you in, as the entrance as an electronic lock). Lovely breakfast (breads, cold meats, cheese, etc) great location, less than 5 mins from Centraal Station with everything you could want foot steps away. Would definantly recommend for single, couples, groups, but maybe not for people with children.
In A Grungy Part
Hotel right in the red light area - not close by as advertised. Dangerous and dirty area. At night it is dark and noisy and somehwat scary. Drunks and druggies everywhere. My daughter and I did not feel safe - at any time night or day. The hotel front door was locked at 7pm until 8am. Staff were indifferent. Took 20 minutes for anyone to decide to register us. Breakfast area just part of the main lobby corridor with lots of traffic, suitcases, etc. Rooms OK, decent size, clean. Nice bathroom.
Ok place to stay...
I stayed at Hotel Luxer in May 2004 after reading some great reviews about the place. The hotel is really central, but I wouldn't recommend staying here if you have children or are sensitive about being the midst of sex and 'coffee' shops. On the plus side, our room was clean, the breakfast was ok, and our room was quiet (although our view consisted of rubbish bins).
It's an ok place to stay, but there are better places in Amsterdam.
Stayed here for 4 nights in early May: absolutely brilliant! Friendly, helpful staff - available 24 hours a day. Excellent housekeeping - clean towels every day. Plentiful Dutch buffet breakfast - with attentive staff keeping supplies topped up. Rooms more than adequately sized - even if ours was nominally a single with a double-bed placed in it (only slight problem was the reading light was in prime position for my partner to hit his head on it!!).
Despite being described as in or near the red light district, we felt very safe: both inside the hotel - which has a door entry lock so the reception staff can choose who to allow entry to, and out and about. There were usually plenty of people around - the majority of them just other tourists sightseeing, strolling, looking for places to eat - and there were regular police patrols - every 15 minutes or so there's be one or two on their rounds on foot, bicycle or motorbike.
Overall, highly recommended: we will be back!!
Luxor was just ok
I booked a three day weekend trip to Amsterdam (I was already in Germany for the month) and stayed at the Luxer Hotel based on the decent reviews given on this website. When we got there, we did not realize that Luxer is in the heart of what you could consider "drug street" as the locals call it. Locationwise, it may not be the safest feeling place, but there were definetely plenty of restaurants, bars and "coffeeshops" nearby and lots of tourists. It is close to the Central Train station and Dam Square, which is a plus. The hotel itself is quite cute, but housekeeping service was not reliable during my stay (every night we were cheated out of basic necessities - hand towels disappeared second night, and then the last night our bath mat was gone.) The complimentary breakfasts are nice, and rooms are quite towards the middle of the hotel (keep in mind there are bars all around the hotel). If I were to go back to Amsterdam, I would prefer to stay closer to either the museum district or the fameous Leidseplein district - more shopping and cafes nearby, less seedy area.
Great Friendly Hotel
Stayed in this hotel for 3 nights 20-23rd March 2004. The Hotel is on the outskirts of the Red Light district and is well placed for all major attractions. There were some great restaurants and friendly pubs nearby. The Hotel was clean and the bar is open 24 hours.The staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was clean, fresh towels provided daily and hot water always available. The breakfast was more than adequate and the bread/rolls were always fresh. Would definitely book to stay here again.
In the middle of it all..
This hotel is in walking distance to almost any activity you like. There were enough resturants and coffe houses, right outside the Luxer, to go every night and not visit one twice. The hotel was spotless and the staff very helpful. Rooms are normal european size with private bath, maid service daily, and cold breakfast buffet served until 11am. This hotel was a find, good price reserved in advance, lots of tourist activities, 5min. walk-Red Light District, canal cruises, Central Station, and a few museums, shopping etc...
We stayed at the Hotel Luxer, in March 2004 (Four Nights). Hotel is clean, quite, and has a great location, Just about everything in the hotel is new, including the lift, rooms are spotless, and towels are issued daily. Plenty of piping hot water in the bathroom. Hotel staff are friendly and courteous, Breakfast items were limited to Juice, Cereals, Bread, Cheese, Ham, Madera cake, Hard boiled eggs, Tea and Coffee, Everything was freshly prepared. We would defiantly recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a quality 3 star hotel, in Amsterdam.
We have rebooked for September.
Nice and centrally situated
It was small, nice, clean, quiet, and close to everything (train, shopping, red light, trams etc). Very much worth the money. We would stay there again. Not a wide selection of breakfast (if you're not into ham & cheese), but you get by...
My husband and I spent 6 fabulous nights in the Luxor hotel on Warmostraat in the Red Light District. After a horendous day of traveling back from the sweltering heat in Itlay, we checked into our newly remodeled "home" for the next week. The people were so friendly and helpful. The breakfast was quite a spread and everything was clean and neat. They have a full bar in the lobby and round the clock doorman. If you are on a budget this hotel is definitely within it! In a busy district we could easily close off the sounds of the street below and hide in our air conditioned room for a nap to prepare for the night ahead. We will most definitely stay at the Luxor again and we have passed our recomendations on to our friends already.
