Just don't hesitate that the Hotel is not in the city center, this is a very value Hotel ... Actually made of two parts, in which u can reach the rooms either w the elevators just at the left of the Hotel Entrance or w the further elevators located next to the souvenir shops in the inner Lobby area. The rooms on the high rise building r some more bigger and u have the view on the higher floors concerning the Amsterdam Area, I did stay several times on both parts, the rooms are very comfortable, clean and tidy in high rise and / or other wing area ... Minibar (paid), bathtub provided for comfort ....
Even u dont need a cab to reach the city center .... Just 5 mins walk is a tram station in which u can reach Dam Square and Red light District w the tram for 2.50.- Euros which lasts just 15-20 mins tram ride ...
Hotel has several bars and restaurants, quite busy actually as the Hotel serves to a large amount of businessman from all over the world and also many travel agency tourist groups even from Asian countries .... Breakfast Buffet is very well sorted w fresh juices, cold and hot appetizers, cheese, omelettes etc ...
As conclution, very recommendable Hotel for tourist travel and also in case u r on a business trip ...
Directions: On Amstel River, South Amsterdam.
We stayed here as this hotel had the only rooms left in Amsterdam for New Year! We were disappointed as the hotel seemed so far out at first, but this hotel has excellent facilities and the transport into the centre is so easy - there's a tram stop a few minutes walk away and trams run every 12 minutes for about Euro 2.40. The staff were really friendly and helpful, very good bar and restaurant facilities and it was good to get out of the centre at the end of the day. If you get this hotel as an option, DON'T be put off by it's location.
Unique Quality: Sauna, fitness suite, 2 restaurants and 1 bar/brasserie, parking facilities, shop
Directions: At the end of tram line 25 Presidenyt Kennedylaan

Just for me to search in the right city quarter.
Madurodam, I would say half a day visit (incl travel, food & drinks).
I hope you come in time to see Rembrandt's Nightwatch Ice Sculptures.
At http://www.visitthenetherlands.blogspot.com you can find
all kind of restaurants.
I think Madurodam requires between 2 - 4 hours.It is 2 if you are after a quick look. If you are interested in the details and if you have e.g. little children with you it is 4 hours. But it is with many things, if you are "touched" you can also spend a day.
Madurodam in itself is not so big, I think about a football field size. When I visited Madurodam (as a kid, so long time ago), I remember the trains, the airport, the harbour with (tug)boats, all moving. As a grown up I visited it again, it lost some of its attractiveness (I saw the boats do the same track all day etc.). I never looked at it as a way to get an impresssion of "The Netherlands", that may be an additional aspect for you.
I hope you have fun
thanks a lot for the prompt reply. it helped me lot & helped to take a correct decision thanks again
