After a night of stay in Amsterdam down-town, where smallest room you've ever seen you pay the fortune we decided to check what nearby hotels are available.
Taking in mind that we had a car (which you had to park in Amsterdam for 40 Euro per night) it was reasonable to try hotels in suburbs. And we found one!!!
The one in the resort area in the forest and twice cheaper than in Amsterdam.
Balcony facing the lake, pure silence of the surroundings, wild birds and animals.
There are routes for biking who likes to stay but we chose to spend time sightseeing
First Class property in my standards. Hotel is situated in the Historic heart of Amsterdam in close proximity to main tourists attractions, museums, theatres, shopping areas and the night life. All within walking distance.
Centrally located. You will find yourself within 1-5kms to the following places there: Anne Frank's House, Flower Market, Rembrandt's Museum, Van Gogh Museum just to mention a few.
A nice spacious double bed room, with Philips LCD tv a electronic safe and wardrobes. A spacious bath with bath tub, shower and hand shower facilities. Extremely courteous and helpful staff, all at around 90 E per nite was a fab deal! This included breakfast as well. However do check on the rates as this may have been a corporate deal my husband got by way of working with ING in amsterdam. add tothis a free wireless internet service as well!
Shopping square right behind which has a flea market as well as supermarkets,boutiques, bakers, ATM's etc. Well connected by bus and trams as well.
Cheaper if youre travelling on your own. If youre travelling with another or more unless the hostel has a twin or triple room for you then its probably better to compare whats available whereever youre wanting to stay with what hotel or bed and breakfasts are available.
Arrived in Gouda late on the exact day the youth hostel closed, although its eatery/bar business was still going on. Ended up at a police station asking for advice (the entrance security measures and "clientele" were interesting in their own way). They directed us to a nearby guesthouse, where we were put in a second-floor room, very comfortable and clean. Breakfast of cold meats, cheese, bread, wonderfully strong coffee! Gouda has a pleasant town square and more. I'd like to visit it again.
Hotel De Lindeboom (The Lime Tree) is located in Den Burg and situated on the Groeneplaats, the square just in the centre of this ‘capital’ of Texel. Therefore a perfect place if you are not on Texel for the beach and the sea and during off season periods. The hotel has a car park (€ 6,- a day) and it also possible to rent bikes at the front desk.
De Lindeboom does exist from 1895 and even now it has in my opinion a lot of ‘old charm and hospitality’. Rooms are renovated and do have all modern amenities one can imagine (bathroom, air-conditioning, floor heating, internet access, colour TV and really nice beds).
It has a couple of restaurants; we did like most the so called Café Brasserie with a warm interior (a little bit like an English pub), serving tasteful diners. The oldest part of De Lindeboom is Het Schoutenhuys, which dates back to 1611) and is a well known restaurant on Texel (we missed it because it was open from Wednesday till Sunday). The excellent breakfast buffet was a great start of the day.
De Lindeboom has a nice sunny terrace and even early February we could drink our cappucino enjoying the sun and watching Texel's streetlife.
The charm and hospitality of a family owned hotel.
Perfectly located in the middle of the nice village of Den Burg.
It offered very interesting special deals.
this is my favorite hotel in amsterdam. it is clean, and the rooms are comfortable. the dining room for breakfast is beautiful. rooms cost more than i will pay during peak travel season, and room service is low quality, but no one visits amsterdam for the food.
great views of dam square, and cool staircases
Place was a few blocks from Centraal Station. Nice pub right on the corner. Apartment was very clean and alot better deal than the hotels I have stayed in before in this area. 3 beds 1 bathroom internet access.
Great neighborhood and the Renter Jenny was also very nice.
very pleasant stay right in the town centre would recommend to anyone.
great views cable lift to the top of the hill have lunch then either tobogan slide down or take the cable lift,the first way down is the most fun while still very safe.
The hotel is situated in a former monastery, which was rebuilt on this place after the devastation of another mission house during World War II. Willibrordhaeghe was officially the St. Willibrord mission house, the former seminary of the SVD priests, who are also known as the Missionaries of Steyl.
Numbers of trainees for the priesthood declined more and more and the building became much too large for that purpose.
After a restoration Willibrordhaeghe was reopened in 2004 and nowadays is a modern four star hotel, which still offers extensive conference facilities. During our stay we met different kind of people in the hotel: businessmen on a conference, a group of students on a summer course, wedding parties and ‘normal’ tourists like us.
The interior of the building is a mixture of modern decoration with some historical elements, but we always were impressed by the serenity and special atmosphere. Our room was very spacious with all modern amenities, but without a balcony (ever seen a monastery with balconies ?). It is possible to rent a bicycle at the hotel to discover to area around Deurne.
The hotel has a large courtyard, a nice lounge, bar, restaurant (with a terrace) and a fitness room. Breakfast was really perfect. The staff - everybody, everywhere and always - was very helpful and friendly.
The buildings are surrounded by a landscape park.
When we made our reservation, the receptionist referred to a booking site (www.hotelspecials.nl) because it offered a cheaper rate. Finally we decided for one of the deals from the hotel.
NO LONGER AVAILABLE !!!!
We made a reservation in a hotel in Aduard, but due to an overbooking we were transferred to ‘De Gastheerd’ (or Guesthouse), also in Aduard. Afterwards we were very happy with it, because the hotel didn’t have too much charm. Completely different from the B&B, which is situated in an old (19th century) gentleman’s farmhouse.
It has 4 bedrooms, which share the spacious and modern bathroom (double wash basins, shower and bath), a breakfast room, which also can be used for reading a book or preparing the next day trip. It also offers a garden and a kind of orchard and it is possible to rent a bike to explore the surroundings of Aduard/Groningen.
Three spacious rooms are € 68, per night; we had a smaller one and had to pay € 58,-
There is also an self contained apartment in the ‘barn’ behind the main house.
The B&B is for sale on the moment (June 2007), so if you want to stay here, you will have to hurry.
Very good breakfast and very nice hosts (JoAnn and Hans van Seventer).
Excellent location to visit the city Groningen (we did it by bike, but you can also take your car or the bus) and the countryside around Aduard.
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.
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!
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!
