    The France Hotel

    by

    I got a basic accomodation for EUR 100/night ...for a twin bed....though expensive, I went there without any reservation...everything I looked on the internet was more expensive than this, even the hostels were expensive.

    The serve their breakfast in Irish Pub? which is located next to the hotel.

    Directions: Very near to the Central station, when you come out of the station, you will find the St. Peter's (I am not sure about the name) church. Its located at the back side of the church, near the "Weeping Tower"

Travelling on TGV

by FraMauro

I was just going through the "Warning and dangers" tips and wondered if I had been hasty and over-enthusiastic in planning for 4 nights on my own with my son in tow. Due to a combination of factors, I am staying at the IBIS Centre, but still within the cancellation period.

1. Should I look for something in the Dam Square.
2. What is a safe time to get back to the hotel in the evening?
3. Where can I find clean loos and how much do we pay for them?
4. I am taking the TGV to Paris (first time on TGV) and will have 2 big suitcases. I suppose we have to keep the luggage near our seats. How safe is it? Will there be a conductor on board every compartment. Can 10 yr olds get to the loo on their own if I have to watch the luggage.

Thanks

Great train ride and I have never had any problems. Ibis is a bit of a walk but I dont know your deal or the amount you want to spend...more cash/ better hotel. Dam Square would probably be more interesting and bike taxis there can take you most anywhere. I generally stay at the Eden on Amstel as it is reasonable, on a canal, breakfast deals can be had, free internet, laundramat close, 10-15 min walk to Central station and is less noisy. Take a van from the airport, not a cab. Buy a cup of coffee in a restaurant or walk into a hotel likje you stay there and use their loo.

Although returning at a safe time depends where you are, his bed time is probably perfect. There are generally enough people and conductors (not one per car)on the train that no one will take your luggage or your son.

Dam Square is ideal, you both should be safe and fine and it isnt difficult to reach back to Dam Square at anytime/any condition.

Been late nites in Amsterdam/Netherlands and travelled long distance every night and found Netherlands to be one of the safest and friendly nation/people, you will be fine.

I regularly travel to Amsterdam on my own, and have always felt perfectly safe there - everyone speaks English, and they are a friendly bunch.try to leave the big cases at home - you wont need them and they will just get in your way! have fun!

1 IBIS centre is fine; you have 10 trams to select in front of the next door Central station.

2 Last trams are around midnight. If you prefer to walk stay at the major streets.

3 Loos; see my tip: http://members.virtualtourist.com/m/tp/1406d4

4 I think the TGV will have a luggage rack in each section; see:

Don't worry too much about your luggage (Otherwise by a lockwire and lock your suitcase to the rack).

Travel Tips for Amsterdam

Splendid architecture and scenery

by chuckie797

From Central Station to the Leidsplein area this city is a feast for the eyes. The best way to get around is by public street cars. The red light district is very close to central station. This is a must see anytime of the day. The city is one of the most progressive in europe. Walking around is fun but watch out for the bicycles. The coffee shops are worth a visit. Each has a different feel and many sell marijuana. The small shops are fun to visit and there are many different ethnic restaurants. Pick up the tourist guides at Central station for hotel bargins and restaurant discounts. The canal boat tour is a good way to get acquainted with the city. The people were friendly and helpful.

I have been told that Amsterdam has more canals than Venice! This city has such a nice feel about it and is great to wander around in. I unfortunately don't have photos that capture the beauty, but trust me, it is lovely.

Heritage

by tompt

In 1275 count Floris V of Holland gave toll rights to the 'people living in Aemstelledam'.
This year is marked as the birth of Amsterdam. But the inhabitants of amsterdam were there years earlier. In 1220 the dam became the central point of the settlements at the banks of the river the Amstel. Around 1300 Amsterdam got city rights.

The old town was around the Damrak and between the Oude- and Nieuwe Zijds Voorburgwal. The city expanded in the next centuries. In 1612 a plan for the canals in half circles was presented. In the 17th century the city got this destincted form.

The website of the monument department of the city has great info on the old buildings of Amsterdam:
http://www.bmz.amsterdam.nl/adam/index_e.html The coat of arms of Amsterdam

The three crosses are Andreas crosses.They are named after saint Andreas, who is supposed to have died at such a cross. The origin of the coat of arms is unknown.
