We stayed at the HEM hotel as we got it on an Expedia special rate. Rated on Expedia as a 3* it was more like a 2*. Outdated décor with a very strange outdoor indoor bit (we never did spot Yogie the Bear) but it was okay. It is a little out of town about 20 minutes from Central Station but only a short walk from the tram which runs to just after midnight, after which there is an hourly night bus.
The room wasn't filled with all the mod cons but was clean and warm. Nothing to write home about but adequate for a quiet night's sleep away from the action.
Value for money it was an excellent choice but don't expect too much

Historical Traveler Reviews West Side Inn Hotel Amsterdam
Stayed for 2 days in May 2003 in an economic twin room. The rooms were comfortable, of adequate size and spotlessly clean. Although the hotel is a little out of the way from the town centre, there is a tram stop 5 mins walk away. At night a taxi costs around 20 euros from the Leidesplein. All in all a decent hotel for the price. The only down side is that a lot of the main attractions aren't really within walking distance.

Well, we slept until 10! So fell the plans for an early exploration of the city. Instead we were directed to another local spot for lunch. 20 minute walk along a canal (lol) to the cafe de Jarens for their famous tomato soup with creme fraiche and a carpaccio sandwich and white wine. The walk was full of awesome buildings and bridges and and and..... We are now on the train headed ...
... chilled?' award goes to Caeser from Caen. 19, spoke 4 languages, could put in a decent bit of speed on the bike, when he could be bothered, travelled super light weight, with super budget kit, introduced me to dulce de leche and crackers. Legend! O - the 'biggest bonk' award goes to Bernado (Bernadinho) after he heroically announced he would help us with our ambitious mission of cycling from El Chaltén to El Calafate in a day, moments before he bailed off into a hotel ...
... to Dubai as our ‘summer vacation’ (which we did not have because of the Q2 review in the US that is always exactly in the week the boys are off……) and weeks before we had been watching the video’s of the waterpark at the hotel (Atlantis the Palm) online with Mats and Ole. This waterpark has to be one of the most magnificent in the world for kids, with incredible slides and a waterriver of 1 mile that takes you through the aquarium where you ...
... who we had lunch with today. We had our safety briefing so no need to worry as we now know how to put on a life jacket, I for one will sleep better tonight. Turns out the canals are only 5 five meters deep and our ship is six meters tall so we just have to run up to the sun deck with our drinks! Tonight we enjoyed the Captains welcome dinner which had me a little confused as we had what seemed to an ...
... next leg on our route home - probably Hartlepool. Think it might be seaside fish and chips for tea!
And now another day has passed without access to wifi. It's Wednesday and we're in Hartlepool after a delightful day sunny sailing in a pleasant mostly SW force 3-4 - just right. It turned to NW and Force 6-7 near the end of the trip but destination was in sight by then so no worries - and calm sea makes a huge difference. Now sitting in ...
