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 Outdated décor with a very strange outdoor indoor bit (we never did spot Yogie the Bear) but it was okay.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.

With the past few busy days behind us, our time in Amsterdam and in this program has come to a close. It went by so quick, but I think the time was also a highly beneficial experience with all of the case studies we now have to work with in comparison to the United States. Amsterdam was a very fulfilling experience in itself; I eventually acclimated to their style of cycling and grew to appreciate the easy to understand urban layout and bicycle network. Even if ...
... In addition to the beautiful use of light and colour in the Vermeers, and the dramatic scenes in the Rembrant paintings, she also enjoyed the works of van Honthorst, Breitner, van Everdingen and Verspronck. Rembrant's , "Night Watch" is a massive canvas, rich in detail. She also checked out the display of late 17th century doll houses. These were not for children; wealthy families would spend hours and much money on decorating them in elaborate style and some are quite ...
... tense wait at the gate we heard that we were on! Not with our fat ***** in business class but 4 cattle class chairs split up throughout the cabin. No matter though, we were very happy to be on and after a bit of a reshuffle we even managed to sit together :) We also bumped into One of Annick's old friends, Nicolette, was also flighing to LA with her daughter....they also managed to get on, but only on the jump seats. So we were ...
... morning we went to the Anne Frank House but the line was to the end of the block so we booked tickets online and went later that night. Instead we did a spot of shopping (marks shopping for the year) and found some markets where we tried traditional 'frites' (chunky fries with mayonnaise) and 'Stroopwaffles' (two thin waffles stuck together with syrup). Both were ...
Update: Burp!! What a fantastic meal last night! The Deer and Tiger Indonesian Restaurant is the best. No mucking around here.....we headed for the top of the range all inclusive blow out multi platter comprising of about 14 dishes. Lamb curry, egg do dah, prawn satay, fish curry, chicken fritters to name but few all washed down with a glass of local beer. The downside of this indulgence ...
