Was in Amsterdam last weekend with a group of friends staying at the Alp Hotel. Arrived late Friday evening and the staff were great and provided us with complimentary drinks while we got all the rooms sorted out. The hotel is about a 20 minute walk to Dam Square however in an area I was familiar with and there are plenty of bars and restaurants around. The hotel is small but modern and very clean. We had 2 double rooms and one triple, the triple was a little cramped but ok for a couple of nights. The rooms are very clean and comfortable, not much space for cases or clothes but ok. Most have a small balcony, all ensuite, towels, hairdryer and safe. Breakfast is traditionally Dutch, cheese, bread, cold meat, cereal, fruit, yoghurt, tea and coffee. Fruit, tea and coffee are all available free all day at reception. The breakfast area turns into the Hotel Bar in the evenings and a good meeting place. The bar is open until 3am however the night security guard who serves in the bar late at night can be a little off putting, not the most pleasant, chatty or hospitable however this did not spoil our stay. This is a nice hotel however it is a little bit away from the centre of Amsterdam, tram stop is on the doorstep and the staff are great.
