... be a great day! The chopping of our trip has defs made me more relaxed and I am very excited for Berlin. (but not coordinating transport, that is a universal difficulty) Oh and I'm glad a friendly Australian mentioned to us that Amsterdam is the worst place to dorm it and that ur guaranteed no sleep (especially with these bloody italians in our room) Lisa out!! ...
... I nearly vomited when I got told the price. What a ridiculous price for a drink! The Red Light district was really cool, a lot of the girls in the windows were surprisingly good looking. For some reason I was expecting them to be trashy and gross, but a lot of them were actually stunning. Their was an alley in the Red Light district called 'fat alley'... the name is pretty self explanatory. In Amsterdam their are 'coffee shops' and 'cafes'. This is ...
... drives through the tunnel!!! Ahhh!!!! I know crazy stuff. Once we arrived in Amsterdam one thing was very obvious, I mean it was clear that these people really felt passionately about a certain something... Yes, from the moment we got off the bus you could tell the people of Amsterdam love bikes. As far as you could see bikes. Here, there, chained to everything, bikes. I'm talking, yikes, that's alotta bikes. We even saw a mother, with a basket full ...
... It clearly does not take much to make us happy.
The next day was the 'Boxing Day' of the Netherlands. We had hoped this would be the day we were going to rent bikes to explore the city and it's outskirts a little bit more, but EVERYTHING in this city was closed. In fact, it was easier to find somewhere to eat breakfast on Christmas Day than it was on the 26th. However, we found this amazingly cheap crepe place and got chocolate banana crepes for breakfast. They were the size ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Borgmann Villa Hotel Amsterdam
Miss something but extremely OK !!!
Me and my fiance spent there 4 days ,the location is very good just outside the centre close to the Vondelpark and with tram line 2 you will reach the sights in 10-15 minutes .
I made the booking trought my travel agency Nordic Italian Travel and we have realy enjoyed our stay there ,room 11 is great and has helped me to strike my girlfriend ...........
We missed all the breakfast because 9:00 was too early for us but that is our fault not their ,I met also the Owners realy nice people but I met only them because there is nobody else on the desk and sometimes we had to find the informations on the street or on a travel guide we bought in Italy .
At the end ..........People go there !!!!!!!!!!!
Nice cosy place, very good deal for the price
I think this is the best area of Amsterdam -near calm green Vondel park, all build in with 19th century villas and at the same time so near the center. The hotel itself is also a former villa, so i understood that all rooms are different. Mine spacious double had a great balcony overlooking the Vondel park. The owners (a charming couple) really care about the guests and create homely ambiance. Very clean! Great place indeed.
If quiet is what you seek.....
If you are the type of traveller who prefers to stay in quiet area away from tourist center, I have a perfect little hotel for you. Situated near the end of VondelPark, the Villa Borgmann may not be the most covenient hotel for the short term visitor, but if you have a few days, and don't mind exploring by tram or walking through gorgeous neighborhoods and parks, it is a great choice.
The neighborhood is wealthy and reminiscent of New Orleans' Garden District or London's Hampstead, with large houses, beautiful architecture and lovely gardens throughout the area. There are also a decent number of cafes and shops scattered around the neighborhood...Not right out the door...but pretty close. Due to that fact, we chose to eat breakfast out of the hotel, sampling a few of the local cafes...Also, the regular continental breakfast seemed a touch pricey to us at 10euro.
There are a couple of tram stops a few blocks from the hotel...and a fairly dedicated walk to Leidseplein is about 10-15 minutes through the park...allow 30 minutes in reality. It is about the same to Museumplein...depending on one's window shopping time on Williamsparkweg and P.C.Hoofstraat...
The hotel itself is very pleasant; sparkling clean and friendly...We had Room #11, a front room with a beautiful floor to ceiling bay window. The blond furniture and the bay windows made the room seem quite large...The breakfast room is lovely; overlooking a small canal and the park...and there is also a small sitting area in the garden in the rear of the hotel, which I found to be a great place for my evening smoke.
All in all, an excellent experience...
Great stay at Borgmann Villa
I just got back from Amsterdam and the first two nights were spent at the Borgmann Villa Hotel. We had a nice, spacious room with two gently firm beds. The stairs were steep, as they are all over Amsterdam, but they also have an elevator. the morning breakfast was very good for the 10 euro that they charge. I would defintiely book a room there again. It is not in the center of the city which was great for me. Instead it is on beautiful Vondelpark where I could jog in the morning and stroll in the early evening.
Best night's sleep for years
I look for 3 things in a hotel - space, sleep and a good shower. We got all 3 at Villa Borgmann. Our double room on the second floor was about 6 by 4 metres, the bathroom 3 by 3, about twice the normal size. The area is quiet at night and the local restrictions mean little traffic during the day. Add this to the linked twin beds and I got the best nights sleep I have had in any hotel for a very long time.We arrived 90 minutes late because of flight delay but were given at 9 p.m. an excellent description of the key areas of Amsterdam which took us through the 3 days of our stay. The staff continued friendly and helpful throughout. Walking from the hotel through the Vondel Park to the Museum area takes about 25 minutes. Tram line 2 is about 5 minutes walk ( you could stay in a hotel on a tram track and be further from the stop than this ).To reach the hotel from Schiphol we could not find the bus to Hofpark Hotel so we took the train into town and a taxi out. After 3 days of riding on the trams we got adventurous so our return was a walk across the park, tram no 1 to Lelylaan station, and a train to Schiphol taking an hour in total and costing 5 euros each. There are up to 5 trains an hour on this route.Obviously all this is personal, as are the potential disadvantages. If we had stayed in the centre we could have returned to our room during the day, but we would have seen less. Our method for getting a rest during the day was to take a boat trip. Also, if you take a car, there is street parking on Koningslaan with a charge from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. at 1,80 euros per hour.With a work colleague having had a bad experience with noise and poor facilities in an Amsterdam city centre 2 star hotel, we were very pleased with what we got at the Villa Borgmann.
