TravelPod Member ReviewsMarnix Hotel Amsterdam
The room was a 10 bed dorm with attached bathroom. The beds were comfortable enough and the linen clean. The shower was decent but the toilet was broken. It took a minute but I worked out how to make it work. Had to read inside the wall and lift the plunger out of the system.
I saw a mouse in the kitchen today. The tablecloths seem to stay dirty for a long time.
Internet was great.

Lots of things not right with it..windows not shutting properly, shower door broken and the shower flooded, but it was cheap and that is what we needed. We had a private room and a shared bathroom.

After a few dirty looks we decided we had probably bitten off more than we could chew. We did manage to see some really cool stuff in a short time though - some Van Gogh artwork, Napoleons gun, some beautiful jewellery and elaborate silverware. Antiques roadshow would have a field day in there! ...
... go full speed down cobblestone streets, they don't signal their turns and they have the right of way. This can be very intimidating for lowly tourists who don't know which way to look when crossing the street. Guenther saved my hiny a couple of times. Some of the 'bikers' will sound their bell, but most don't. You hope you can hear the rattle of a fender for some warning. Not for the faint of heart. Check out the pictures for more house boats.
... and how long it takes...amazing. The small Dutch country was a world power since they had harnessed the wind long before others. It made them great ship builders. Technology changed that for them.
We went to Zaanse Schans to see working windmills. There are only 1000 of 30000 windmills remaining. There is a large effort to save them. We visited the last remaining commercial sawmill in the world under the power of a windmill. We had a Dutch ...
