Hotel Spoorzicht: small family hotel
We had a clean pleasant room and the breakfast was fresh and the coffee good and strong.
The owner was very friendly and helpful.
The area is great for walking or cycling and there is the wonderful NP "De Weerribben" nearby.
The hotel has had lots of bike routes printed.
This is a small family run hotel in a little village in the most southernly part of the province of Friesland. It makes it a great place to stay while exploring the provinces of Drenthe, Overijssel and Friesland.
The hotel also offers an arrangement for three nights with breakfast, three course dinners.

Hotel Keizerskroon: Gouda Hotel
The Hotel Keizerskroon was just barely basic. The bathroom was down the hall, shared by at least four rooms on each floor. The stairs were narrow and steep and there was a church bell tower right outside the window, an alarm clock was not needed on Sunday morning.
But, the rooms were clean, and the staff friendily!

Crowne Plaza City Center: Good central location
My wife and I have stayed at the Crowne Plaza 4 times and are staying there again this summer before flying home to Colorado Springs. We have stayed at other locations in Amsterdam like SAS Radisson on Rusland - 7 times, and The Marriott Hotel twice. Nice hotels, but we believe that it comes down to the people working in the hotel. We have been very fortunate to get nice rooms, quiet and clean. After all the walking one does the pool is a nice treat at the end of the day. Spend a few euros/dollars more and book a club room. Access to the roof top terrace and club room with complimentary drinks, beer and wine and lots, lots more.
The fact that it is down town, but it's quiet at night. A few years ago we stayed at the London Crowne Plaza when we where on our way to Scotland to get married. In our e-mails with the London Crowne Plaza before we left the US it came out that we were to be married in Scotland. On our arrival at the London hotel they gave us a free upgrade, a bottle of Champagne, a silver picture frame and a card that was signed by all the hotel staff. We were staying 1 night only. They must have e-mailed the manager in Amsterdam as we received similar treatment there too. Nice gestures, nice people with good communication makes the world of difference. They get our business every time!

The Bulldog hostel: What a fantastic place
I tell you what, i absolutely loved this hostel. The staff were so friendly and really went out of their way to help us. It is a little more pricey than some of the other dives around but it is well worth the extra moola.
It is pretty much smack bang in the red light district and you do get the drug dealers hanging about and pimps chillin' with their bi**ches but in saying that the Bulldog was fantastic.
I'll never forget my first night walking i n there and this guy was sitting back on the couch, arms stretched out just chilling. It was like he was surveying the scene, checking out what was going down. In absolute typical attire, he wore and top hat ( well kind of smaller than a top hat but getting there), a purple shirt that was undone to reveal the hairy chest, sporting a gold medalion, gold rings on his finger, smoking a cigar. Now this was no Amsterdam induced state, he was real i swear it. It made me laugh so much.
But the Bulldof really is worth a stay. There is a restaurant inside and breakfast is included. There is an awesome cafe next door dedicated to fairies. Worth a definite look.
There are many dorm beds but all are comfortable and clean. there are lockers and showes all the modern trims.
You are never short of entertainment being at the Bulldog. There are 3 of them on the same road so its not hard to miss. I never felt threatened even being smack bang in the middle of the red light district. At times it can be shady and you are aware and take precaution but all in all the hostel itself is deffo worth a mention.

Spaanstra: A nice B&B
We spent 6 days at the Spaanstra Family's B&B and had a great time. We had a room with a private bathroom and balcony, fridge, coffee maker, it was very pleasant. The breakfast was served in the room and it was so huge that the leftovers were enough for dinner. We paid only €45 for this including taxes. Parking is opposite the house, it is free between 8 p.m. and 10 a.m. which is not bad as we went on excursions and we rarely got back before 7 p.m.
Zandvoort is ideally located for excursions, Keukenhof, Haarlem, Leiden, Amsterdam are very, very close.

General information about accommodation in NL: Places to stay in the Netherlands
In the Netherlands there are a lot of possibilities to stay.
But the prices in the cities are very high.
If you want a good standard for a low price I can recommend Formule 1:
Etap is a bit more comfortable with a private bath. # http://www.etaphotel.com/etaphotel/gb/cartographie/pays_bas.shtml #
Another options is Ibis # http://www.ibishotel.com/ibis/reservez/fr_top.jsp?ecran=rech_par_carte #
Formula one hotels have the same standard everywhere in the world.
You know what you get a bed to sleep in a clean room for low price.
They have a bed for two persons down and one person can sleep up.
There is a small TV in each room with a few programms.
The toilet and bath is public. After using it is cleaned with much chemistry.
The breakfast is served in the morning for an additional payment.
It is good if you have not much time. But don't expect to much.
Tip: You can use the rooms with three persons. There is not much staff around. They don't registrate which person sleep in which room. If one person waits outside while the others check in it is absolutely no problem to stay with three persons.

Camping Hazevreugd: Camping Urk
A "normal" campground near a wonderful little fishing village called Urk. There is a little zoo with rabbits, goats and other animals, a little swimming pool and a nice steak house on the campground, so plenty of fun during high season, I would think.
Since we only stayed there for one night and it was off season, we just enjoyed the place, it was clean and quiet and so it was perfect for us!

Camping Corfwater: Camping Petten
This campground is right next to the beach, that is what made it perfect for us! The campground had several small areas for tents or campers, but cars had to be parked outside! The facilities were FANTASTIC, very clean, very efficient and very child friendly as well! What amazed me as well was the fact, that solar energy was used to operate everything - highly recommendable!

Harlingen Harbor Crane
This "hotel" has only one room - and that is YOUR room! Well, actually the whole hotel is yours!
When we arrived we called the number that was given to us and about 15 minutes later the harbor crane warden came. She was a cheerful lady who explained everything to us - thinking about it, she explained it in Dutch, but we understood her very well!! She was so enthusiastic that we could not help feeling the same way (which we would have done anyway...)!
She showed us how to get to the top of the crane (this includes two elevators, one of them really spacey, just like in 'Starship Enterprise'), how to use the touch screen, which is a control center of both illumination and air condition/heating. She showed us the different levels (living area, crane operating area and the "sun deck") and made sure we felt comfortable!
Which we did!
In the morning at 8 a.m. we heard the elevator - and there was our breakfast! A very delicious meal that added to our comfort!
At 12 p.m. our crane lady came to pick us up and we were quite sad that this wonderful day had passed so fast! But it sure was a day that we will never ever forget!
For more pictures and details please have a look at my Harlingen page!
Book waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay in advance!!!

Hotel Amrath: Province Noord-Holland, Alkmaar
Brand new hotel, opened March 2005. Very good rooms and within 5 minutes walking distance to the charming center of Alkmaar.
Limited secluded parking behind the hotel at 15 euro per day. Bicycles on loan. Breakfast buffet leave somewhat to be desired. Improve on the scrambled eggs because they were inedible.

Golden Tulip Lisse De Nachtegaal: Next to Keukenhoff, Near to Amsterdam
The reason we picked this hotel was its close location to Amsterdam (ca 30 km) and great last-minute deal. Since one of the most important things for us is facilities for kids, it is one of the few places in Amsterdam area where they do have a play-ground. Car parking was free. Hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. 126 standard and 24 executive rooms. Coffee and tea facilities in the room. The entrance hall was a bit out-of-date and the elevator was quite unique - we really had to push hard in order for bottons to work and be really patient while waiting the elevator doors to close and open. Our room on the other hand was a positive surprise. Although we stayed in a standard room, it had a bath, a shower, and a separate toilet. Our room was extremely clean and spaceous with lots of windows. Actually the entrance hall and the elevators didn'd match the coridores and the room of the hotel. The hotel did have a free internet connection and wifi, but there were only two computers and the connection was really-really slow. Wifi worked only in the internet room and while sitting really close to the computers, this was a bit dissapointing.
I would recommend this hotel to those travelling with children and to those who are visiting Keukenhoff, since the hotel is situated practically next to it. Lisse is a nice small village where it is great to take a walk or ride on a a bicycle (can be rented from the hotel).
Paly-ground, swimmingpool and free parking-lot were the most outstanding facilities for us.

De Efteling Hotel: Every Child's and Romantic's Dream-Come-True
A fairy-tale like hotel with standard and family rooms and tower and 16 theme suites.
Check-in was wonderful. Kids got gifts - bags with hotel cards and a small game (in Dutch), but since they are so small that cannot read anyway, it didn'd matter. It is the though that counts. We also got map of Efteling amusement park.
We stayed in a family room - the only bad side was that it smelled very strongly for smoke. We asked to change the room, but unfortunaltely there were no non-smoking rooms left :( Room itself was quite spaceous. Bathroom as well as the room were clean. Children could reach the wash-basin with an extra shelf beneath the basin.
When booking arrangements - dinner and breakfast - in advance it really costs much less. As en "extra bonud" our children (1 and 3) got free three course dinner as well as breakfast! Food was very good and portions were big. Next to the restaurant is a play-room and play-ground outside - so children had difficulties with eating. Buffet breakfast was very good and rich as well.
A pre-booked day ticket to Efteling amusement park gives hotel guest the right to enter the park 15 minutes before opening from a separate gate - this is probably especially benefitial during the high season. As an extra bonus and making it easier to shop and make you to spend your money easier, all your shoppings will be delivered to the hotel from the amusement park shops on your request ;)
Free parking for hotel guests.
I would recommend this hotel to anyone - big or small - together with arrangements.
Note! If you prefer non-smoking room, do not forget to mention it while making the reservation!
Children facilities are excellent - indoor play-room, outside play-ground. Safe - fences are everywhere so children cannot get lost. In the morning there is a special small entrertainment for children in Dutch. Although our children enjoyed it as well.

Hotel Agora: A Charming Hotel on the Singel Canal in Amsterdam.
This was the second time that we have stayed at the Hotel Agora..It is a charming hotel in a Canal House in a very central part of Amsterdam..Right next door to the Flower Market...a five minute walk to Leidseplein, about a 10 minute walk to the Dam Square, the location just can't be beat..The rooms are small but adequate. The breakfast room overlooks a pretty garden..The breakfast itself is small and consists of eggs, cheese, lunch meats, a selection of breads, and coffee and tea. The owners are very helpful, friendly and make you feel welcome..I would recommend this hotel if you want to be in a central location And there is a tram stop right outside the hotel. Give it a try!!
Canal View rooms are available.
