Authentic Experience of Amsterdam Local Culture
Posted Jul 24, 2016 on Hotels
This small family-owned hotel is in a residential neighborhood of historic Amsterdam within walking distance of the university. The room is more attractive than the pictures show with lush floor to ceiling drapes that block sunlight when needed and light sheers that let in filtered light if preferred. The larger bed consist of 2 twins put together but have comfortable linens. The shower is small but nicely decorated with an interesting modern tile mosaic accent. Personnel are friendly, multilingual, and very familiar with the local attractions. Additionally, there is a trolley stop, subway system, wine shoppe, restaurants, and a grocery are very close to the hotel. The neighborhood offers lovely strolls past quaint homes, canals with lively personal boat traffic, and lots of pedestrian traffic. The only drawbacks to the hotel are that there is no air conditioning (it does get hot in July) and the hallways are somewhat noisy when tourist arrive or leave. Tourist musts include a canal cruise, visiting the old chapels, the Anne Frank house, and the art museums.
