Location - Located near Vondelpark, the Hard Rock Café and the Blue Boat Canal Cruise Company. In the Museum Quarter so you are also within walking distance to the Van Gough Museum, the Rijksmuseum and Heineken Brewary. We walked everywhere, although there were tram stops close by also.
The Room - Although basic, it was fine. At the end of the day it is a city break. We spent barely any time in the room. The standard double rooms are small with a desk, 2 chairs, 1 double bed, a wardrobe, safe and alarm clock. The bathroom is a walk-in shower, sink and toilet. Don't expect the Ritz. Our room was clean and serviced daily. Our linen was clean, the radiator worked and we were happy with it. The only thing that I would comment on would be the bed - personally I found it too soft and the pillows too big. This is not a fault of the hotel, it is just a personal preference issue.
Breakfast - Served daily from 7am - 10am. Consisted of cereal, bread/toaster, cold meats i.e ham, salami, cheeses, jams. Juice, milk, tea, coffee machine. Self service. Quite nice, decent quality.
For hot breakfast, take a walk down the road and you will find a little place call Pancake Corner, or various other cafes.
Staff - on a whole, friendly and attentive. We saw three different staff members throughout our stay. We were allowed to check in early - 12.30 isn although the official check in is 2pm. So it is worth finding the hotel and trying to check in if your flight lands early. Room keys are required to be handed in at the front desk each time you leave the hotel. The staff were helpful with information about the area.
* Check the hotel reception - often attritions leave leaflets or cards with money off vouchers to the attractions which will help save money.
* Pack lightly and check airline t&cs for anything you may want to being home.
* Cheese is big business in Amsterdam - there are so many cheese shops. Some cheeses are a little cheaper at the airport on departure and can be sealed in a clear bag as duty free luggage.
* Coffee shops are the ones that sell the naughty cigarettes, Cafes sell coffee and food.
*Try and do a canal cruise or bus tour on your first day to get an idea of what is around the city.
* The currency is Euro - You will need around €120 per day maybe more depending on what you want to do. (based on a couple)
* Museums are from €4-€15 p/ person entry
Room Tip: If you want a bigger room - book the deluxe. Otherwise, all standard rooms are the same and are small...

... man, woman and child in the country. And they ride along at breakneck speeds just ringing there little bells for you to clear the way. It is funny to watch, but not fun dodging them. They ride right through intersections when they do not have the right of way. They trust the other means of transportation to watch out for them. I would like to take you now on tour with us out into the outlying country. We took a four hour tour outside ...
... of ten years! Had dinner with D&D at the Ren. Hotel Restaurant and it was very good. Gary and I split our first European hamburger! Then we went by ourselves to the casino which was similar to the American casinos but we still lost! No ***** tables but tons of roulette tables! Lost $60! Tomorrow morning we are off to ...
... It is so cute. As us Americans put our kids in the back, the dutch put them in the front. Not sure if it is easy to steer that way but they make it look easy. When we cross a street, the bikers pretty much have the right of way or you get hit. Anyways back to the museum......
As you can see the building is in the harbor with a 17th century ship docked beside it. We saw a movie called Voyage of the Sea (all ...
... try made up time and we were only about 40 minutes late on arrival at Schiphol. Schiphol is one of Europa busiest airports and is laid out like a hand with multiple fingers that support the gates. Naturally we arrived at the tip of one finger and were scheduled to leave from the tip of another. Just as well we are reasonably fit as we had to power walk back to the hub and out again. We got there with about 15 minutes to ...
... and found a nice place to chill out in the sun and sample so more of Amsterdam's delights. The song sweet emotions comes to mind if anyone has seen the movie dazed and confused. It ended up being a lot busier when we got back on the bikes so there was so much more to concentrate on. I'm just going to say it was a challenging ride to our next stop for lunch and I don't even think we went very far. The afternoon drifted by and we headed back to the apartment ...
