Short city break
Posted Dec 27, 2016
A short girls trip to Amsterdam for Christmas- There were 6 of us, so we booked 2 rooms that had 3 beds each and a bathroom, this worked out great for us, as you can imagine sharing one bathroom for 6 girls wouldn't be idea, so 2 rooms were good and all for a good price. Understand what you are paying for, so if it's a 3 star hotel- expect a three star experience, and all that we needed was a place to sleep and a good bathroom, in Amsterdam for only 4 days so we hardly spent any time inside. The staff was pleasant and a big thank you to Hitcham (please forgive me if I have misspelled your name) 6 girls from London and most of the time all we wanted was a cup of tea to start of our morning and end our evening- You was very accommodating on that need.
In terms of Location- it is a bit far from the city centre, perhaps about 25-30mins, but public transport is efficient and it was only a straight tram to the city centre, we got used to the public transport very quickly and easily got the bus back to the airport on our last day and saved some money. Also to mention that we got a travel card that covered our whole duration in Amsterdam, it covered us on buses and trams, once you got that sorted out, you can get anywhere- Plus everyone rides bike, so if you're feeling brave to use that as your way of transport, go ahead.
