... smoking locals. We were again reminded that EuroFolk like to smoke. Ok, so I guess Americans like to drive big cars and trucks. I'll concede that stereotype (even though I personally always drive small fuel effficient vehicles) but in general, Americans seem to drive large cars (relative to EuroFolk). It is also true that wherever there are EuroFolk, there will be people smoking in public places. I have to say this is one of the biggest negatives in Europe. Smokers seem to ...
... in hand, leaving us wondering about warnings of lung cancer and the benefits of anti-smoking laws.
Still early in the day, we found it interesting that a lengthy queue meandered from Anne Frank's house. Even more intriguing was the many young people, prepared to wait up to 3 hours to view this part of a sad history. A police van remained parked near the home, a residue of recent threats!
The quietness of ...
... back to the boyfriend to see the photo to only find out that gravity and poor photography skills had won again. Who can blame them though, everyone loves an epic jump shot in front of iconic signs!
I was not the only one who had the museum in mind on this rainy day, I realized as I waited in line for an hour to buy a ticket. Once inside I got right down to business and got my art on. I've never seen van Gogh's original pieces and walking around I was ...
... asleep before we lifted off. Arriving at Amsterdam and getting a train ticket to Central with only a short walk to the hostel. Quite a small place but looks good. It is mixed dorms. I went out to find dinner and just a short walk down the street for a curt little Thai place, and oh god it was good. Best I've had snide leaving Australia. Hope to visit there agai before I leave ...
... 10.30 and the queues were small. When we left an hour later, it was a very long wait.
Next we saw a lovely old church built in 1299. We had a hot chocolate in the little courtyard outside.
The floating flower market was interesting and you can buy 100 bulbs of tulips for around $7.00
We visited a cheese museum and had a lot of free samples.

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Weber Amsterdam
Definitely one for your list
Great hotel. The interior's been nicely renovated and has a clean, warm, contemporary feel. Our room was big, bright and spacious with large windows, lovely decor a very big and comfortable bed and simple furnishings. There was a kitchenette, plasma tv and a great shower room. Overall it was one of the nicest hotel rooms we've stayed in and, as there is no communal space and only 10 rooms, the hotel actually feels more like your own personal base in the city. Breakfast maybe a little basic for some but it suited our needs.
Well positioned, lovely room, good quality, good price and a big plus for us was that they accepted 2 night bookings. I'd happily go back.
Sin duda, uno para la lista
Un hotel genial. Han renovado el interior con gran belleza y tiene un toque limpio, cálido y contemporáneo. Nuestra habitación era grande, luminosa y espaciosa, con grandes ventana, una decoración preciosa, una cama muy grande y confortable, y muebles sencillos. Había cocina americana, televisor de plasma y una ducha genial. En general, era uno de los mejores hoteles en los que nos hemos alojado y, como no hay sala común y solo tiene diez habitaciones, te da más la sensación de estar más en tu base privada en la ciudad que en un hotel. Quizás el desayuno sea un poco básico para algunos, pero se adaptaba a nuestras necesidades.
Bien situado, con una habitación preciosa, de buena calidad, buen precio y un gran extra para nosotros, que era que aceptaban reservas de dos noches. Volvería encantado.
this was a great hotel. on first entry i soon realisd what people ment by the steep stairs! they are quite steep alright. we had to ring the guy who owned the hotel, number on the door, to let us in. he kindly lifted my bag up the staires. we arrived at 11am and were able to check in right away. the room was great, very modern, fresh bread every moring left outside our door and there was ham, cheese, yoghurts, jam and nutella in our fridge. coffee making machine and the bed was so... comfortable. it was raiing one day and we were quite happy to spend the day in bed watching tv. only around the corner from nightlife and tram stops. our flight was not till 9pm to Cork but we were allowed to leave our bags in the hotel reception. really i do not know why it is called a hotel, the rooms are very spacious and like an apartment, i think there are only 6/7 rooms in total..... well priced also-we booked on bookings.com. everyone in amsterdam were so helpful and kind. i would definatly return here again and stay at hotel weber.
Great hotel, We went to spend a weekend in Amsterdam and stayed in this hotel. Very central located. Next door to the hotel their are the best bars of Amsterdam. Very helpful and friendly staff. Hotel is not suitable for older people. ( no elevator ) Room are very comfortable, modern and spacious. Also the coffee machine on the room is excellent. finally a real good cup of coffee.
Un hotel genial
Un hotel genial. Fuimos a pasar un fin de semana en Ámsterdam y nos alojamos en este hotel. Muy céntrico. Al lado del hotel hay los mejores bares de Ámsterdam. Personal muy amable y servicial. El hotel no es adecuado para gente mayor (no hay ascensor). Las habitaciones son muy confortables, modernas y espaciosas. Además, la cafetera de la habitación es excelente. Por fin una buena taza de café.
Super hôtel. Nous avons passé un week-end à Amsterdam et nous y avons séjourné. Emplacement très central. Juste à côté de l'hôtel, il y a les meilleurs bars d'Amsterdam. Personnel très efficace et sympathique. L'hôtel ne convient pas aux personnes âgées (pas d'ascenseur). Les chambres sont très confortables, modernes et spacieuses. Super machine à café dans la chambre. Enfin une vraie bonne tasse de café.
We stayed here for two nights and were really pleased with everything about it. The rooms are spacious, very clean, comortable and modernly decorated. It felt like we were the first people to stay in the room. The staff were really friendly and made us feel very welcome. The location was great and we would definitely return. We hardly left the hotel we were so comfortable :)
Un hallazgo fantástico
Nos alojamos dos noches allí y quedamos encantados con todo. Las habitaciones son espaciosas, están muy limpias, son confortables y tienen una decoración moderna. Parecía como si fuéramos los primeros en alojarnos en la habitación. El personal era realmente amable y nos hizo sentir muy bien acogidos. La ubicación era genial y, sin duda, volveríamos. Apenas salimos del hotel, al estar tan cómodos :)
Super trouvaille !
On a séjourné deux nuits et on a vraiment tout apprécié. Les chambres étaient spacieuses, très propres, confortables. Décoration moderne. On avait l'impression d'être les premiers clients à dormir dans la chambre. Le personnel était très sympathique. On se sentait vraiment les bienvenus. Très bien situé. On y reviendrait. On a vraiment eu dû mal à quitter l'hôtel tellement il était confortable.
Great budget hotel
Great place if you are on a budget. Clean, comfortable rooms at a price of a hostel. Great bar, too
