... and separate lanes for cyclists. We're told to watch for cyclists when alighting from the bus as a refreshment stopl and to look left first when crossing the road. We;re used to that now, we've been through Dubai!
We arrive at Amsterdam and see canals and moats surrounding the houses. Amsterdam has very little area, and is largely built on water, using wooden piles. Water is pumped through the canals using locks and allowing it to ...
... and headed back to the hostel where we played some pool and met some new people. We then decided to take a quick nap and woke up around 9 again, and then decided to walk through the red light district and get something to eat before heading home again and sleeping. On wednesday(31.07) we got up, had breakfast in the hostel which wasnt really to exciting but it filled us. We then walked to the Flower market where you could almost only buy Tulips and lilies, or tulip bulbs. ...
... and decide not to venture to the Rijksmuseum to see Rembrandt . Strolling down the canals, we find the cheese shop recommended in Frommers, De Kaaskamer van Amsterdam. So fun to see all the wheels of Gouda cheese. Grant and I pick out three kinds and a container of ready to eat cubed"old Gouda". Soooo funny, we opened the cubes and ate them all right in front of the store. It was the best Gouda ever ! I went back in and bought more cubes and a big piece to ...
... next to it is the 'fashion district' - fancy stores - that we whizzed by on our bikes - darn! Sad, but now I know where they are:-) We went thru the museum park (Rijks and Van Gogh) and ended up in the Red Light District. Quite different from our experience last night there as tons of solicitation was going on. And it was a party....and tons of people packed in the streets. No ... no awkward moments with Dan or any of us (to ease your mind!) ...
Oh where to begin... Our flight left out of the Pisa Airport because it is much easier and cheaper than flying right out of Florence. It left at 6 am Friday, so we thought that we would just take the latest train out of Florence, get to the airport around 1:30, sleep there for a few hours, and then get on our plane. Turns out over here the airports are MUCH smaller, and they actually close! So basically we arrived at the airport (Me, Allison, Sarah, Megan, and Garret) to a locked ...

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.
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.
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
