... Frank could hear from the Secret Annexe and wrote of in her diary; the Homomonument, which honors homosexuals who have been persecuted, especially during the Holocaust (and is the first monument to them). I have to say, one of the most useful parts of the tour was learning how to avoid the constant stream of deadly bikers. I got much better at paying attention very quickly, but not everyone did, leaving Dojna to yell "BIKE!" every five seconds.
... after this so we decided to have a few quiet ones that night in the hostel..... This resulted in a great night spent dancing around the bar before we made our first journey around the Red Light District :-() It's fair to say that I had never seen anything like it before!!
On our second day, we rented bikes for the day as it seems to be the only way locals get around! We cycled all over the city out as far as the Heineken Brewery and we had our lunch out by ...
... I had arranged when he left that he would meet me wherever the ferry left him off upon his arrival. He was not at the terminal so I figured he'd be at the Hotel Victoria. He wasn't. I had not been in contact with him since he left Alndyke Farm on Monday so I was a little concerned about what was happening. Let me rephrase - I was a lot concerned. It wasn't that I was afraid of being in Amsterdam alone. I knew I could find ...
... Dutch people in a pub at
Leidseplein, mostly dressed in outrageous orange outfits for the Euro 2012 game
against Germany. Go ORANJE!!!! Against the Germans, whom they have not beaten in
10 years....sorry, disappointment again! 1- 0 to those
Germans. But the special housewine "JUST C******nay" helped us to forget.
Apparently the Dutch are on average the tallest nation in the

Sometimes it's worth two nights on a bus for a day out. We've decided to trade off weekends for some of the far non-baby friendly trips. I picked Amsterdam, specifically for the Anne Frank house.
This tiny little house, in her words "secret annex," gets over a million visitors a year. With cameras verboten, all I can share are my take aways of which I have two. One lies in the sheer power of the written word. Anne's only ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Piet Hein Amsterdam
Just returned from a 5 day stint at the Hotel Piet Hein and I am anxious to return -- not only to Amsterdam but to the hotel itself. I enjoyed a most pleasant stay and thoroughly enjoyed the hotel's facilities, not to mention its location (across the street from Vondel park, a stone's throw from Museumplein and Leidseplein, and a short walk to Rembrandtplein). The accommodations were clean, modern, fashionable and quite comfortable, both physically and psychologically. The rooms are quintessential European (ie -- small), but such is life. They are utterly functional and come complete with all that you need. The complimentary breakfast each morning is a real treat (again, typically European but delicious!). The lobby is replete with flat screen monitors for web access, an array of white leather sofas for lounging and relaxing, a large bay window for viewing Vondel Park across the street, a bar with a most congenial bartender, Martin, a 42" flat screen monitor on the wall for watching television and plenty of reading material.
My boyfriend and I enjoyed a 4 night stay at the Hotel Piet Hein and neither of us could fault anything about the hotel. The staff were all very friendly and approachable and the rooms were exceptionally clean and well maintained. There were always fresh, clean towels in the bathroom when we arrived back in the evening and housekeeping kept the room looking spotless! The size of both the room and the en-suite was surprising; both were more than adiquate for two adults with plenty of baggage.
I stayed here in June 2004 as my base for a business conference and found the hotel to be more than acceptable. Whilst it was never a real quality hotel, I found it to be clean, quiet and good value for money when compared to other Amsterdam hotels.
I unfortunately only had the pleasure to stay there one night. After a long transatlantic flight, it was great to stay in a quiet hotel, in a quiet area just across the street from the park. It was very easy to find and the staff was so pleasant and eager to help. As much as I love the action of the city, it's nice to have a quiet place to place your weary head at the end of the day. I would not stay anywhere else!
My wife and I recently stayed at the Piet Hein for two nights and had an excellent time. A tram station is just a couple of blocks away making the city centre just minutes away. Many of the best museums are also just a couple of blocks away. The neighborhood seemed very safe even at night. I recommend sitting on a bench in Vondelpark (Across the street) and watching the interesting people walk by.
The Hotel Piet Hein, seems to have been recently redone. Fresh bathrooms, good sized, everything clean and bright. Rooms while small were what I have come to expect of European Hotels. Always be prepared that a single is indeed a single. (Twin bed)
I am 6'3 and had no problem with the extra long bed. Room was again not that big but the bright window at the end of the room made for a pleast experience.
Staff was effective, and Multilingual. In Fact spoke far better English than the hotels that I have been to in The UK. Breakfast was sufficient to get your day started with.
Close to the Major Museums.. and the Tram lines.
Americans with a Starbucks Caffiene habit be forewarned. None to be found in Amsterdam.
Hotel Piet Hein, is an excellent buy.
Very Pleased With this Hotel - Would Come Here Again!
My family and I were searching for a reasonably priced hotel in Amsterdam where all four of us could be in one room. We looked at Piet Hein's website and decided to take a gamble.
What a pleasure! Great location - across from Vondelpark, five minute walk to the museums and Leidseplein, around the corner from PC Hoofstraat, immaculate throughout, affable staff, nice hearty (free!) breakfast.
If you're looking for quiet, quality, and quaint, this is the place. We would visit here again in a heartbeat!

easily accessible by tramfrom central station. Friendy, comfortable, good breakfast, definatly would return
