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 Outdated décor with a very strange outdoor indoor bit (we never did spot Yogie the Bear) but it was okay.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

... From here on, the night got blurry! A highlight for Frank was going to the toilet at the bar, and discovering the window on the way had good views to the red light window across the lane. This was his chance to get a photo of one of the girls, as they're not generally too keen on it! On his way back, he took that opportunity! Funnily, the girl still saw him do it, and the resultant photo shows her general annoyance at his sneaky photo! Hilarious (and as luck would have it, ...
... English and the fear and longing for freedom are still as vivid in my mind today as that day I read her stories in fifth grade.
... is great, however, after my experience with it today I would not be a user of it. I do not think that it is any worse of a drug that alcohol it is when consumed in excess (although maybe I have just been listening to a bias opinion of it). The coffee shop tour ended at the Cannibis College (the marajuana information centre - run by stoners for stoners; And they test your weed man!). For a small fee you could go inside their green room and see marajuana plants growing. It ...
... we walked back to the Van Gogh museum (having seen from the canal tour that the Anne Frank House had an enormous line as well) to use our second “tulip” (museum admission ticket). The line at the Van Gogh was long, but much better than it was when we checked it out earlier. We were inside the museum soon enough, and started out our exploration of the 4 floors from the top, working our way down. It’s a very nice museum, and Van Gogh is one of ...
... was the butterfly house. Very hot and humid, but dozens of butterflies everywhere, even a area with cocoons. All around the gardens are benches. This truly is an oasis in the city where relaxing with a book would be a perfect pastime. Next, we strolled over a few blocks, being careful to avoid the moving van struggling to pull up to a building for loading. Remember, the streets are narrow. Check out my short movie on how the locals get their things up and down ...
