Travel Blogs from Amsterdam
... we had a siesta, it was nice to get away from the chaos for a bit and rest. We had dinner at a restaurant with tables outside along a canal, we chatted to a couple of girls from Tasmania who were on a Contiki. Venice is a pretty crazy place, boats everywhere, ferries, taxis, gondolas, couriers, ambulance – everything is done by boat.

Our train to Milan wasn’t until 12.50, so we checked out of the hotel, ...

One thing Rick Steves mentioned was BEWARE of the bicycles. OMG they whiz and zing at tremendous speed everywhere and on lanes that run next to pedestrian side walks so you have to be so careful not to get run over or walk in wrong spot. Add to that we still are thinking right hand rule! In all seriousness it's a real hazard but at the same time very fascinating. Apparently there are about 600,000 bikes in Amsterdam!
... with the weather... Normally, you descend through the clouds, see the lights on the ground, wait a bit, and then touch down. Today, we were still ín the clouds when - boom! - the wheels touched the tarmac. The traffic control tower was only a dark shadow in the mist; departing airplanes where cutting a blanket of mist with their wings, a blanked that seemed as tangible as a cotton candy!

Historical Traveler Reviews NH Amsterdam Centre
Great Hotel, Great People, Great City therefore Great Time!
Stayed 6th - 10th April and had a fantastic time. Hotel is suberb. Our room was a good size, nicely decorated and it was kept spotless. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful and the hotel had all the necessary facilities. The bar area was nice and relaxing and the little chocolate eggs at the bar for easter went down a treat. The location of the hotel is superb with great transport links to central station. This was our second time staying at this hotel and we would certainly go back!
My boyfriend and I stayed at the NH Amsterdam Centre from March 12-22 and had the time of our lives. The hotel is fantastic, the hotel staff were extremely helpful and the rooms are very clean and modern. Our king bed was so comfy we hardly got out of bed before 12. We were upgraded to a king room upon arrival and were even allowed to check in early as our flight got us into Amsterdam around 9:30 and check in wasn't until 3. I would highly recommend this hotel for the lovely staff, rooms and it's wonderful location. We were able to walk to all the attractions we wanted to see. The Ann Frank House, the Van Gogh Museum, you name it you can walk to it from here...it truly is in the centre.
My wife and I stayed here for 6 nights and had a wonderful time. The staff was extremely helpful and the hotel a great location, a minute walk to Leidseplein. The rooms were very nice, the only complaint I had was the city noise at night but you are staying in a big city. I will definately stay there when I am in Amsterdam again.
We went to the NH Amsterdam Centre Hotel for a 3 night stay and it was really perfect. The hotel lived up to its rating and more. The location is great as it is close to the Leidesplein which has quite nice bars and is away from the hustle and bustle of the main centre of Amsterdam.
Trams come every 15 mins outside the hotel, which are so easy to use but everything is within walking distance anyway. If I went to Amsterdam again I would definitely go back to this hotel as it looked far superior to any others we saw. The staff are very friendly and helpful and the rooms are clean - spotless in fact - the bathroom was gorgeous with a walk in shower which was something to rave about!
Loved it, loved it, loved it
What a fantastic hotel!! We have recently visited Amsterdam for my boyfriends 30th birthday. I e-mailed the hotel in advance, informing them of the reason for our visit and arranging for champagne on his birthday morning. Not only was the champagne on time, the room ready early etc but they also went to the trouble of sending him a birthday card from the hotel - This is true customer service!! I would not hesitate about booking here again and would encourage anyone going to Amsterdam to do the same!
Just fantastic. this was our first trip to Amsterdam and after alot of leg work on the net quickly realised that star ratings are higher than we would give here in England and therefore spent the max we could afford to be assured of a good hotel. I am very, very picky about hotels (just ask my husband). We found a great deal for 4nights room only at this hotel. I cannot express enough how brilliant this one is. Large rooms, with couch, lovely large, comfortable bed etc. The bathroom was very luxurious. Room maids did brilliant job everyday. I cannot fault the NH Amsterdam Centre and will definitely go back there - if we can get a good again. The doorman is aa great character!!! Oh and finally, the location is perfect.
The Best in Amsterdam
This is the best hotel in Amsterdam by far! It is right next door to the Marriott and the American Hotel and is way nicer. The rooms are specatuclar, we payed a little extra for a suite and it was gorgeous, super modern, dark wood floors, splendid marble bathrooms, sitting area etc. The hotel is the best location in Amsterdam right off of the Leidse-plein which is a great pedestrian square and a huge walking street full of shots bars and cafes. Would stay there again in a second.
Central and fair priced
We spent a weekend in Amsterdam and were looking for a reasonable preiced hotel. Since we found a very good weekend-special-rate at one of the larger hotelreservation-systems (www.hrs.de - in many languages - highly recommended), we decided to go to the NH Hotel Amsterdam City.It is not the top class Hotel, but 100 Â /night for a normal double it is a very good deal. You are in the city (right next to Leidseplain) and can walk down the shopping district. Also a couple of trams are getting you almost anywhere in town.The room was not very big but comfortable enough. Our room was not facing the street (we asked for a quite room) and looked recently refurbished. The staff is helpful. The lobby is not looking to modern anymore - but who really cares?Restaurant tip: Lof, Haarlemmerstraat 62 (620 2997). Modern kitchen, very freindly, very good food, reasonable prices - a feel good dinner for sure!
Good value hotel: recommended
Very reasonable price and in nice location. Much better than a cheap hotel near the station or red light district. There are also some good bars nearby which have cheaper beer than those near Dam Square, and the hotel places you right near all the lovely canals and upmarket shopping streets (very near Kalverstraat). Room was comfortable and clean, as was bathroom, and all the little extras (including shoe shine) were good. Breakfast was also included, which was very nice. Recommended.
Also the lifts are cool.
A nice room in a great location
This hotel is actually called NH City Centre. Like the name, you really are in the City Centre, just a block away from the Spui with its collection of cafes, and right on the Singel canal. We got one of the cheapest rooms during the first weekend in May, so we were facing an inner courtyard, but if you can afford it, the rooms facing the canal are guaranteed to have a wonderful view.Our room was compact, though the slight angling of walls gave a dynamic feel to the layout. The bathroom had ample counter space and the walk-in shower was well-designed. All in all, quite comfortable for sleeping in, and who needs to hang out in a hotel room during the day when you have all of Amsterdam to roam about in?
