... shopping, shopping and more shopping. the tram system was amazing and the sunsets were also a highlight of our stay. Also found the red light district very interesting, and the tourist strip where so many coffee houses are set up etc. central station on the canal was the biggest train station I have ever seen, and there were literally thousands of cycles on the racks in the surrounding area in the city. this place was amazing and very ...
We docked at 4:45pm local time, and were soon driving off the ferry onto untrod Netherlese soils. After our hunger strike due to extortionately priced nautical nutrition, we were both very hungry so our first stop was inventively, Aldi. We went mental in the aisles, purchasing salads, bread, some margarine, and a large packet of crisps which were eaten in the ...
... who knew English so we could find out where to go. We then had to go through another security check. It was around 2:30 KL time that we boarded the KLM flight. They got us a light meal but Liam fell asleep before it came. All the lights went off so we all tried to sleep as best we could. Thank goodness I had a travel pillow, it really helped. We managed to sleep most of the flight. Breakfast was served ...
... wanted to take tons of photos but we weren't allowed to. If the exhibit ever comes to the states it's a definite must see. Like you guys, Buzz was originally this little fat guy....And, the work that has to go into creating every movement of an insects body in a Bugs Life...It made me appreciate the work so much. It really is an art.
From the Expo, we went and grabbed dinner at a ...
... I was struggling to stay fully awake, although I never fell asleep. Finally, we finished the day with ice cream at a well known Dutch ice cream shop. It was delicious. Overall, it was a fairly productive day. I finished two movies and a book, An Abundance of Katherines, we were reunited with the Beks, and I managed to stay up for 90% of thirty hours.

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Manofa Amsterdam
Save your money!
I´m sure this hotel is a part of criminal organisations, while i stayed there at least 3 passes were stolen. People were walking in and out of the hotel all the time, may i say suspicious people at the least! Walked to the reception, got a key, went in to the hotel and came out about 5 minutes later. I was sitting for an hour or so in the reception room (yeah they got a sofa there!!) and alot of kids (local it seemed) went in and out like they had an agreement to go in and loop passports. You are safer to keep the passports on you than in this hotel!!
I am sure there are more revolting places to sleep, but I certainly don't think they cost over 100 euros a night. It smelled hideous, the carpets were toxic, sticky, and stained with god-knows-what, the "breakfast" in the overpriced hotel downstairs (which we found out was included accidentally) is just cereal and old ham and cheese, the towels were yellow and smelled of cigarettes, the bed was wobbly and the linens filthy, there are no elevators in a 4th floor walk up, no soap at all in the bathroom, the shower curtain was gooey and slimey, and 3 people of our group had their passports stolen from their rooms. There is a sign behind the front desk that says they are not responsible for any items left anywhere o othe premises, presumably so they can make a few extra euros off lifting passports. The pictures on their website are a best-case-scenario, possibly the only good thing that can be said is that the bathroom fixtures seem to have been installed in the last couple of years, and the there was tv, albeit fuzzy. The location is very convenient, but there are about a million other hotels in the area so don't bother with this one.
Just don't do it
Paid 25 Euros\person for 6 in one room. Went to top floor. 4 flights up and not even any hot water!!Paid a bit more 5 euros each then got moved to the second floor ensuite - where we found a mouse. It was in our food. Lost Â£50 worth just like that.Mgt couldn't care less when we complained. There are plenty of better places to go.
No rats in my room!
ok so its no paris ritz, but for location and price it is very good. no rats in our room, beds were clean and so was the shower. for Â£60 a night for four of us its acceptable.
Hairy bedspreads and hairy shower
Rooms were dirty and we had to change our own bedlinen when we complained. Watch out for the bloke on the desk, he'll make you pay before you stay. My friends have stayed in a nice room here last year, but if they try and lumber you with a ground floor room, just don't bother. Very central location for the money though.
ROUGHER THAN A GRANNIES GRIFTER
May i advise anyone who thinks about booking the Manofa hotel to save themself their money and health by reading the following:-You would be better off sleeping round the back of CS with the junkies than in any room in the Manofa. As previous reviews have said, this hotel clearly has a rodent problem, i stayed there in 2002 and found rats about 2cm from my sleeping wifes head! I found the staff to be rude and inconsiderate, the 'so called' manager was also rude and aggresive. DO NOT STAY HERE!
Ack. Could this be worse?
Could this place be any grosser?! I woke up to the nibble-nibble of a rodent inside my backpack eating my trail mix. The fire alarm had some horrible red schmeared stuff on it I tried very hard not to look at, chuncks of plaster where falling off the wall, the carpet was absolutely disgusting AND it was freakin' expensive! Completely horrible. DO NOT STAY HERE.
There's a rat in my bedroom what am I gonna do?
Rats in the bedroom, need I say more? Do not stay here if you care about your health. I do not know how this place is classed as 2 stars: dirty floors, dirty beds, bad smell in the room etc. Not even an apology when we informed them of the rodent problem!
