Fantastic to arrive from a long haul flight and find a welcoming room and reception staff. This never changed in the 7 days we stayed here. This hotel knows how to be of service to its guests e.g. offering to post a letter, the many times I had to ask for Dutch to be converted to English and the genuine warm smiley welcome each morning at breakfast and when we returned to the hotel during the day.

To get there from Amsterdam we had to take a train to Utrecht and then a bus for over an hour to ...
... a valuable lesson. In a week and half we have spent about $300 on unnecessary train reservations. The lesson is, don't wait for the 5 different ticket offices to say there's a free option after complaining about the cost. Never assume people who should know will tell you, always ask. So for example instead of going on a high speed, mandatory reservation train we took 4 slower free trains. We get there in three hours not one. Although sometimes we may have to pay, this is a ...
Well another sunny day...lucky people that took the ship this week! I woke early...in fact did not sleep...so at 6am decided to go for a stroll...wrong decision! Apparently this is the first of summer holidays in Amsterdam and there is a concert all weekend that druggies like to attend according to one shopkeeper....and Amsterdam like all Europe countries never start early in mornings...shops never open before 10 and on Sundays 12 ...
