For the open minded traveller, this is a great stop in Amsterdam. Nothing else was available under $500, so we gave it a try. They let us check in early (10:00 am) when our River Cruise ended. Phillip was extemely helpful in how to get around, restaurants, bicyles, Windmill tour etc and provided transport to the airport. Essentially, this is a full services vacation stop. It is an easy tram ride from the Central Station, and is in a very nice quiet area of the city, just outside of the Ring Canal designating the city center. It is a short bike ride to the wonderful city park, and most of the Museums. We got the room which is detached from the main house and has a bathroom with shower. Though it is fairly small for the American traveller, it was neat and comfortable. Breakfast was adequte, but not gourmet. It was fun meeting Xaviera, and overall made our short visit to Amsterdam a wonderful time.
