... and also we were in the basement so we would be safe if anything were to happen. Next, he proceeded to show us the visual aids he brought because he was sure we were sick of presentations by now: a picture of a shrimp, a vuvuzuela, a picture of a kidney, and a picture of a pimp. His presentation was great, and very refreshing. He works for the UN and is responsible for researching statistics of human trafficking, where they come from, and what industries they are in. ...
... known artwork - beautiful old oil paintings and "the night watch". Marcie questions how authentic it would be with only a rope and one guard in front of it. It was the only room that was very crowded. After about 3 hours we'd had enough of the ogling and ventured outside.
The next stop was the Sex Museum complete with moving mannequins such as flashing man, an ode to porn throughout the ages and ...
... Diamond factory I explored the diamond factory on Friday. It took us through the history of diamonds, the history of diamonds & Amsterdam, royal jewels, a diamond skull and a few other interesting stories. I did pop in next door for a little to watch the diamond polishing process. Albert cuyp market Friday I went back to the Albert cuyp market for lunch. I bought a collection of items from the different stalls including bread, cheese, olives, nuts & fruit, ...
... curry pot pie, garlic mushroom soup, and chicken noodle soup. While we satisfied our food cravings and fattened up for our upcoming Everest Base Camp trek in Nepal, we found ourselves mesmerized by watching the Planet Earth series in high definition. I added it to my list of travel porn, similar to an adult version of Alice in Wonderland. It really is mind blowing just how amazing our world can be if you stare at it long enough.

... and bikes. Every where you go there are special bike lanes. You take your life in your hands if you step out into their lane. Pedestrians do not have the right of way anywhere and the traffic moves fast. The trains travel on ground level in amongst the traffic so you really have to watch out for them as you aren't expecting a train to travel in the middle of the street. Judy can attest to that as ...

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.

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
