... in less than 45 minutes and from East to West of the centre in even less time.
Other attractions apart from the beautiful, historic canals and much admired, eye catching canal-side houses are the many museums, including the Van Gogh Museum, the Royal Palace, Anne Frank's House, the world's most distinguished diamond factory, it's red-light district, Dam Square and its many "cannabis coffee shops " . We saw them all today, firstly on our canal ...
... was green, and the clusters of houses had orange and red roofs. What struck me was how tidy it all looked.
The plane touched down and in moments we were among the crowd in the Schipol airport. It didn't feel as though we were yet in a foreign country, since every sign I laid eyes on was in English. Once outside I could marvel at my first look at Amsterdam. Keep in mind: this is the first time I've ever been to Europe (Adam has already seen London ...
... to visit the Rijksmuseum , unfortunately didn't have time for that. After my husband's bike ride we met up and walked to Vondepark. There was concert going on and one of the local rock bands was performing. We enjoyed a beer while listening to their music. We visited Anne Frank House and of course also had to check out the (in)famous Red Light district.
Our next stop was Rotterdam where Tour de France was to begin. After a short train ...
... markets. The flower markets were full of colorful tulips, perfect posies for any vase or for surprising a loved one.
After the bus trip, my friend Hayley and I went to Anne Frank's House - a MUST-visit place while in Amsterdam. This humbling museum is the original hiding place and home where Anne Frank wrote her famed diary while in hiding during WWII. It captures your humility and pulls at your heartstrings as you walk through the halls and ...
... little more inebriated. We didn't notice any "red lights", per se, but the imagery was obvious. A quick turn to the south took us out of there. Oh yea, the sermon by Don Truex this morning was appropriately titled, "Morality" - Thanks Don.
Finally, a word about our B&B and hostess in Landsmeer. The place was fantastic. About a 4.5 mile bike ride north of Amsterdam out in the suburbs away from the craziness of the city. ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Rembrandt Classic Hotel Amsterdam
Lovely place. Breakfast included with a great rate from their website.
Super friendly staff. Liked the size of the room (stayed at another place the day before the size of a closet). Stayed here over February 15-18--only thing I could foresee changing was the door slamming at night time. The locks are a bit odd and I heard doors closing. It's a courtyard type hotel, so inner rooms can hear other's occasional conversations. Breakfast was grand. Great location.
Loved the Rembrandt Residence
We stayed at the Rembrandt Residence Hotel on January 1,2004. I wish we could have been there longer. The hotel was truly charming. The staff extremely friendly and helpful. The room was large and clean with a beautiful picture window view of the canal. The bathroom was modern. The location was great.We were in a parklike section right on a canal.( It was just how I pictured Amsterdam to be.) We easily walked to the downtown section at night and to Central Station in the morning to get the train to the airport. I will stay there on my next trip to this wonderful city.
We've stayed at this hotel twice--the rooms are variable. If you do not like the first one you're give, ask to see another. We finally stayed in a very large room overlooking the canal. The room was great, but there was quite a lot of outside noise (from the delivery area right below our room) very early in the morning. In addition, the exterior of the hotel (overlooking the canal) is extremely brightly lit--while it looks lovely from across the canal, the light seeps into the rooms on that side of the building, even thru heavy curtains. That said, the hotel location is great, and the staff is very nice. Breakfast is okay--not good coffee, tho. If you can get a good deal on the room (discounts are often posted online) this is can be a good value.
After looking forward to taking my husband for his birthday on a 'grown
The hotel has plenty of character. Beautiful building from the outside. Our room overlooked the Herengracht at the front and this was a big plus. Decor and fittings in the rooms are only average but the staff are very helpful and the public areas are pleasant.
Good hotel in a handy location. Rooms tend to be a bit on the small side...but the facilities were fine and clean. We always take our own kettle to Holland as we find a lot of hotels do not have hot drink facilities in rooms!Excellent breakfast in a large restaurant overlooking the canal. Polite friendly staff. We would use it again.
Stayed there Sept 2002 - excellent hotel. Great location, clean - like a Travelodge in the UK. They all speak English and the breakfasts are top too.
Well located central but quiet
A well run ,clean well situated hotel. We loved this hotel it has a lovely view of the canal and is quiet yet central. The only thing that was missing was coffee/tea making facilities I suppose you could call room service but making your own is better. Breakfasts are excellent too.
This hotel is really as lovely as it looks in the photos! Great location, on one of the nicest canals in the area, the Herengracht. The rooms were clean and comfortable, with basic furnishings. The water pressure in the shower was incredible!
Three years in a row we have stayed at the Rembrandt Residence Hotel in Amsterdam. The location is not to be beat. The rooms are fully equiped and larger than most European hotels. The staff are friendly and fun. I have nothing but praise for this hotel. Already planning our next trip.
