Thanks Pat for driving us to the ferry. The ferry was full of foot passengers going to the Nickelback concert, so we decided to have lunch at Troll's restaurant and take the next bus so we would not become strap hangers!
We met an older gentleman on the bus who we told that we were off to Spain. He is retired and a widower and simply …
... used the free wired Internet in the lobby to check messages and learned that Keegan landed at 9pm. It should not take him three hours to reach the hotel … where could he be? I frantically emailed Paul, wondering if he had heard anything, but he hadn’t. Eventually, I heard him enter and start to explain to the front desk who he was … I popped around the corner, said hi, then quickly let Paul know Keegan had appeared. Then, we went up to the room to ...
... a BLT on the menu, I jumped at it.
It was canadian bacon (aw, canadian bacon), lettuce, tomato, and some kind of honey mustard sauce. It was really good. Canadian bacon doesn't seem the type to get crispy, and if I miss one thing from home, it's delicious regular bacon, but it's not bad!
... when I say slow, it takes 20 seconds to load) or don't come up at all. The photos are a very important part of the website for me, so there's no point in telling people about the website, if it takes that long to upload photos. I know a lot of people are not interested in the text and only look at the photos, so it's important to get that feature working properly first.
Because of it's slowness, I am not going ...
... whilst I don’t normally talk about accommodation I just have to in this case. The Hans Brinkler prides itself on being the worst hotel in the world, it actually markets itself on it and some of the advertising at the hotel did have me laughing. In reality it was very basic but clean, very much in the style of school camp dormitories and it had the added bonus of being very central.
We headed out on a walking tour of the red light district that ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Conscious Hotel Museum Square Amsterdam
I stayed here last month and it was absolutely fantastic. This hotel is located in a great neighborhood in the center of Amsterdam. Close to bars, musea and concert hall. Nice staff, clean rooms and a reasonable price.
I'll be back!
A great place to stay, perfect location to visite all the important museums. Big rooms, very nice staff and a lovely breakfast.
Thank you for your hospitality,
Simon Haft, Denver
Very nice and clean hotel
Nice big and clean rooms and a lovely staff. Looking forward to visit them again in June
Great rooms and great staff!
Very nice hotel with great rooms and a very helpfull staff. Situated in a very clean and safe neighbourhood! We enjoyed our stay very much.
Changed name, and better staff!
I stayed at this Hotel in September 2005, and had a good time! Very clean, though the interior is a little tired. Generally I really enjoyed it.
Me and my boyfriend had a rather large room, though without a bedspread (is it just me or should a 4star hotel not have such small things???).
The breakfast was wonderful with lots to choose from (though nothing warm) and a really nice room to eat it in.
The staff was reasonably helpful, though hard to recognize since nobody seemed to be in uniform. I found it rather confusing to be adressed by total strangers when I had no idea that they were staff...
There seems to be some confusion about the hotel's name too, the taxi driver did not know what it was. I think it was called the Ramada Museum Square Hotel Lairesse (or something like that) before, but I was informed by a very friendly receptionist that they have changed owners. A little enoying when you are trying to take a taxi home at 4am...
Otherwise the location was great, close to everything (if you don't mind walking for like 10min), and generally I really loved Amsterdam!
I can recommend the hotel if you want a simple enough place to stay, that is quiet, clean, comfortable and if you eat a big breakafst most of the time...
This Hotel is in an excallant location for the Museums (obviously), the 'posh' shops and some lovely places to eat. Our room was huge and clean, but a little tired decor wise. Breakfast was pretty simple but good and the staff were very helpful. It benefits from a shuttle bus to and from the airport and is only a short distance from the nearest tram line. We stayed here as part of a package deal so felt that the standard of the hotel was in keeping with the price of the holiday. Book this hotel is you want a good place to sleep, but not if you want something a little more special.
Great location, standard hotel
I don't think this is the same hotel as the AMS Lairesse, as posted on the site. I am reviewing the Museum Square Hotel, same address as the site though. Only one building... very close to both the Rijksmuseum and Van Gogh Museum, plus lots of restaurants nearby. Hotel is in a very quiet, residential area. Small staff, but got the job done. The breakfast array is great, with four cereals, breads, meats, cheese, spreads, eggs, coffee, tea, juices. Beds have wonderful comforters. Bathroom in my room was pretty big, shower on the small side (hard to share). Nice view over the Amsterdam suburbs. A bit of a walk from Centraal Station, but worth it. Spent around 95 Euro a night, breakfast included.
Mostly inconvenient and frustrating
Spent 3 nights at this hotel in August 2004. We were put in the building two doors down from the main building. Pros: A few of us were upgraded to the deluxe room - extremely hip, modern, stylish, comfortable, roomy, and the spacious, multi-piece bathroom was a highlight. The regular rooms were plain and were a far cry from the deluxe rooms. Safety boxes in the rooms a bonus.
Cons: Stairs with no ramp to the building door were inconvenient when travelling with heavy luggage. Front desk was terribly understaffed which made the stay most frustrating. The location was not ideal as the hotel is quite far from most attractions. However, if you are looking for a peaceful, more residential surrounding, this would be good.
All in all, the inconvenience of the location and the building, combined with the frustrations with the service far outweigh the stylish room. I would not return to this hotel.
Plain yet funky
I enjoyed my stay at this hotel yet sensed that you need to be careful about what room you are placed in. I was placed out of the main hotel, down the street 2 doors to an adjoining building. I had a nice room right over the street, but late in the evening the halls, and tiny, industrial elevator seemed very remote. I would have felt better staying in the main hotel. Rooms were tiny and bath/shower even smaller. Overall clean, but the section I was in showed wear. Close to concert hall and museums, it was a convenient location quieter than any "in-town" property.
