... thing. Anyway it was beautiful and filled with house boats. Paul and I sat by the water and watched the sun go down. It was very pretty. We then cycled back into Jordan, bought an internet SIM card and rode back into the city, marvelling at the traffic system. We found ourselves watching a bridge open up for a big boat to pass through and a giant fountain with various columns of water shooting into the sky at intervals. I wouldn't have thought much of it but Paul was ...
... wasn't what I expected, not that i really knew what to expect! But the performers were bored, or at least appeared to be! There was a little crowd involvement from both our contiki group and another group! Including stripping off the sex workers clothing, eating bananas out of a woman's vagina and at one point one of the acts was almost in the crowd. I don't think ...
... if they are along or have significant others. We were so tired that it required the utmost effort to get ourselves moving just to go out to dinner. We went to a recommended Thai restaurant, appropriately named "Thai Food". After we finished dinner at 10:30 pm, we explored the "Red Light District". The last time I was here was 47 years ago. Most of the women were fairly young, but I think a few were still left over from my ...
... takes 1.5 hours in queue to see through it. That's week days as well. Very sad when you are inside seeing how they lived for a couple of years before being betrayed to the Nazis. As it turned out she only died 1 month before the allies arrived at Auschwitz. Went to city square yesterday and watched an Egyptian protest in action about the president being ousted.

We arrived in Amsterdam at 6:30 AM after a 7ish hour plane ride. What did we need to do...shop! One more time. We had a few hours to kill so why not..tulips, Starbucks, and wooden shoes.
However it gave us time to talk about what we missed most...
* hot showers with water pressure
* ice cubes

Historical Traveler Reviews Misc Eatdrinksleep Amsterdam
We stayed in the Retro room for 3 nights over a weekend. I confess the retro deco is looking a little tired, however, the room was clean and the shower lovely - a nice big shower head that now makes mine at home feel like a trickling stream!
I've been to Amsterdam many times, and found the location to be perfect; you really are in the heart of everything, but just far away enough for it not to be really noisy. The breakfast you get in the morning really sets you up for the day, with homemade jams, warm croissants, fresh bread, cheeses and coffee.
Overall, a good location, pleasant staff and a friendly cat.
Fabulous honeymoon 7-day getaway
This was our "home away from home" for 7 days on our honeymoon. The location was perfect. The owners were smart, kind, friendly and offered numerous suggestions to make our stay memorable - which it was. Rent a bike and bike to the countryside, purchase the museum pass, go to jazz clubs, linger at the various cafes, see the street performers on the square - just enjoy - we did.
We can't thank Papijn and Rachel for spoiling us as much as they did. Breakfast was fabulous - albeit we rarely showed up until 11:00 a.m. or later. We only hope they will tolerate us again. We certainly would not go anywhere else.
Just come back from a weekend stay at this hotel, lovely location, super breakfast, friendly people who run the property, very helpful on guiding the most spots in the area whether you want to relax to enjoying a few drinks in a spa nearby...
What a great place to stay. Hotel Misc. is more like a B&B than a hotel. I recently stayed there for three nights and had a great experience. I was with three other people and we got 2 rooms. Both rooms had canal views and a private bath. The rooms were in good condition and each had a safe available. Pepijn and Rachel were outstanding hosts. They answered any questions we had and prepared a wonderful breakfast of breads, jams, eggs, coffee, tea, juice, etc. The location of the hotel was great for us. We walked there from the train station in around 15 minutes. If you are a family, or don't want to be around the red light district, be warned that while this hotel is not in the red light district, it is very close. When I go back to Amsterdam, I will be staying at Hotel Misc. again!
My husband and I have traveled to Amsterdam for 8 yrs. straight. We've stayed at Hotel L'Europe, The American Hotel, NH Amsterdam Centre and Radisson SAS and on this latest trip we stayed at the College Hotel for 2 nights before checking in to Hotel Misc. I cite these hotels just so you have an idea of the standard we are using when rating the Hotel Misc.
Perfect, charming hotel...
I got back recently from a week-long stay at Hotel Misc and had a fantastic time. It's a great location, walking distance to everything, situated on a picturesque canal, my room was a very good size (and all the ones I saw looked very nice), and everything was very clean. The owners, Pepijn and Rachel, were fantastic -- friendly, suggested places to go, helped with directions, etc. And the breakfasts were a personal fave: very tasty & great, strong coffee. I highly recommend this unique hotel if you're looking for something with character, charm and at a reasonable price.
TLC and Perfect Location to Enjoy Amsterdam
Hotel MISC is a real find. It's just outside the Redlight District yet it's quiet and pictureesque. the best part are the proprietors, Racheal and Pepijne. They are probably the most friendly and generous hosts you will ever meet. They went out of their way to make our 4 days in Amsterdam absolutely perfect. The price makes this an incredible bargin!
Jo and Pepign went the extra mile for us more than once. We couldn't find a location, so Pepign walked us there. We couldn't find a jersey for our soccer fanatic son, not realizing the team was Amsterdam's biggest enemy. Pepign contacted a friend in the other town, who contacted the team and had a jersey custom made with the name and number of our son's favorite American player on the team.
Loved the Zosa
