Re: Which Hotel?

Amsterdam Downtown Hotel, Kerkstraat 25: 60-125 (weekend)Euro, 5 min. walk. Little quite street.
Hotel Aspen, Raadhuisstraat 31: 65-80 Euro, 5 min. walk. In a big and busy street, maybe noisy (cars and trams).
Hoksbergen, Singel: 59-90 Euro, 5 min. walk. On each site of the canal a small one-way-street, but crowded, the cars often can't drive fast.
All of them on beautifull locations.
I live in Amsterdam, so I have never been in a hotel here. The prices are from internet.
I wish you good luck and a pleasant time in Amsterdam!
Selma.

Transfer from Cruise Port to Downtown Hotel

by narob48

We have a lot of luggage, so we can't use trains. Any suggestions other than a taxi to get from cruise port to hotel in Amsterdam? Thanks

Re: Transfer from Cruise Port to Downtown Hotel

Hi,

I don't understand what you're looking for, but you can check out public transport here:

If you have to many bags to carry all by yourself, it's just the taxi option.

Unfortunately, the Amsterdam taxi business is made open to get more competition and lower prices, but that resulted in the opposite: lower quality and some rippoff taxi drivers. According to law taxi drivers must make less profitabl;e rides to htels in the centre, but often they claim that the hotel is further out and charge higher rates.

BTW What hotel have you booked?

We are using points to stay free at the Hotel Pulitzer. Some have told me, it can run about 55 Euro by taxi.

Re: Transfer from Cruise Port to Downtown Hotel

by travelgourmet

It may take a little longer than by taxi, but the airport shuttle is only about E30 round trip. My wife and I stayed at the Hotel Pulitzer and loved it. Of course, trying to find your room on the third floor with all the corridors and steps was a bit trying but then what a great experience. Everything is so close to the hotel and the most fun was going into a brown bar down the street. The airport shuttle website: http://www.hotel-bookings.nl/amsterdam-schiphol-airport.html

Re: Transfer from Cruise Port to Downtown Hotel

by Pijlmans

I think the cruise port was mentioned, not the airport...They are not the same...

This is the website for the cruiseport I believe: http://www.ptamsterdam.nl/

If you don't want to walk with your luggage, the only option indeed is a taxi. Public transport takes about 30 minutes, including a walk of 5-10 minutes.

Amsterdam taxi's tarif guidelines:
Maximum startprice including first 2 km: € 7,50
Maximum price per kilometer 3rd km and up: € 2,20
No charge for waiting during the ride.

We are talking about a 3.6 km ride of about 10 minutes (PTA to your hotel).

Re: Transfer from Cruise Port to Downtown Hotel

by travelgourmet

Dennis, you are so right and I apologize for making such a dastardly mistake. I have arrived both by cruise ship and jetliner to Amsterdam, so I became discomboberated. I enjoy the airport more than the cruise terminal, being the reason for this lapse in directional guidance. I have no idea what to do from the cruise terminal as I was picked up by a studio car and whisked to the Hotel Pulitzer except to use a taxi. Beats walking or riding a bicycle.

See the Anne Frank House. ...

by PartyRambo

See the Anne Frank House. It's not quite as small and stifling as I'd imagined it to be, but it still makes you stop and think about what she and her family had to go through during the German occupation of Holland.
Although the facade is modern, the building is in the same shape internally, as it was when Anne and her family hid on the upper floors of her father's factory for several years, to hide from the Germans. The Anne Frankhuis can be found at #263, on the east side of the Prinsengracht canal.
Its home page can be found at:

My favorite part of Amsterdam...

by mmgizthang

My favorite part of Amsterdam was walking and watching the many interesting people. I was also fascinated by the architecture and the canals. What I enjoyed most was the open-mindedness of everyone we met.

A`dam beer

by isolina_it

The 't IJ microbrewery in Amsterdam is a tiny affair too small to export, so this beer is pretty difficult to find outside the Netherlands - the review bottles were bought in an Amsterdam specialist beer shop. This is their tripel-style offering which we also tried on draught at the brewery. It is a clear, golden ale with a bubbly, quite creamy and long-lasting white head. Aroma is of vanilla and citrus fruits (orange zest, perhaps), with a hint of its alcoholic strength. On the palate it is fruity and quite hoppy, with lots of orange-zesty bitterness, hints of darker malt, and an elusive spicy touch. There is also lots of vanilla on the roof of the mouth, which seems to be characteristic of all the 't IJ beers we have tried. The hops are chiefly citrusy in character but, on the downside, tinny notes can be detected. It is quite lively, but otherwise very smooth, with a chalky texture from the bottle-conditioning yeast. Aftertaste is of chalky vanilla, with a little light malt. All in all, the bottles were something of a disappointment after trying the beer on tap at the brewery. The bottled version is perhaps more hoppy, but less subtle and complex, and slightly overcarbonated. On tap it's world class - try it if you can.

by Erkmen

When you reach to Dam square, dont forget to turn back and look to the Damrak... Cause on the way back you will use a paralel street next to damrak..
