... a belt. However, I am fat enough that I really don't need the belt except for looks. I could not locate a Kohl's in Amsterdam--imagine that. Maybe I can find some suspenders, yeah that's a look that could work for me (and embarrass my family). Tomorrow we take the high-speed train to Antwerp and then change to an inter-city train to Brugge where we will spend the next two days.
MONDAY, APRIL 28, 2014 - FIRST DAY
Wayne & I were up at 7:00, having packed the day before, ready by 8:15 and picked up by the Lords at 9:30. We checked in and went through security with no problems. Great start! Before today, Robert had checked on the three Delta flights to Amsterdam and concluded that there was no way we would be able to fly Economy or 1st class, so decided we should fly to Detroit to catch one of their 3 flights tonight. ...
... canal tour with an audio explanation of the history of tulips and the bulb industry in Holand. It was a very enjoyable day and quite an anticlimax to get back to the hotel and pack ready for my flight home tomorrow. After our pre-dinner wine and cheese in Christine and Peter's room, we set off to find the Italian restaurant recommended by guest services at our hotel. The ...
... down what seems like a normal, narrow lane and you turn around and all that separates you from a woman in her underwear is about 2 feet and a sheet of glass! But I guess we are in Amsterdam so these things should be expected. Just like the 'coffee shops', that do actually sell coffee, but also sell other things too. Funnily enough you can smoke weed in them but not just plain old, normal tobacco, Logan couldn't believe it. It was strange ...
... something for everyone. While at a bar/lounge I started chatting with some Germans over football and soccer (I won't dignify it by calling it football). Being a coed group, I hit it off with one of the girls, which had nothing to do with my weakness for blondes. The next day, while taking a coffee break (actually cappuccino, I've started drinking these a lot as in many places the only regular, I.e. American, coffee is either instant or more expensive) while doing ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Amistad Hotel Amsterdam
Do Not go there...
Cramped up little overpriced place. I have never seen anything like this. Rooms are OK, but very noisy (thin walls), never got any sleep. Breakfast was shocking. We almost had to milk our own cow to get milk (self service). Passages are the width of a suitecase, stairs are VERY unstable, or at least it felt like it. Rules and regulations stuck on walls...NO CLASS! Host's fake friendliness really got to me. Passports got kept on arrival?! Call me full of ****, but we were NOT impressed - you will not see us again.
Fantastic weekend in Amsterdam
We had a great stay in the Amistad Hotel, very nice room with great bathroom. We felt at home immediately!!
Very charming little hotel
Amustad is a very charming little hotel , with a central location. we had a great stay mostly thanks to Mike and richard who work there. We'll be back.
Great hotel in a great city!
great hotel, nice guys, great service and clean rooms ! Also great location. We'll be back for sure.
Owners were most kind and helpful but the hotel is very cramped, stairs very steep and our room on top floor was essentially a garret and broiling even with the radiator off. Plus my companion wound up getting 25 bed bug bites on his legs and arms (looked ghastly) which the owners refused to believe could have happened there. We checked out early. Loved the city however!

Hotel Amistad Most Unpleasant
The Hotel Amistad in my opinion is: over-priced, over-rated and most unpleasant."
