We booked this hotel by chance not really knowing Amsterdam at all. The reviews all looked good but i was just unsure about the location. We are so thrilled that we stayed at The Westcord as i really couldn't fault it at all. We arrived at Schiphol Aiport and took a taxi as there were four of us and it worked out quite reasonable at just under 30 Euros. However, returning home today, we walked from the hotel to the train station ( just under 10 minutes ) and then once we boarded the train, we only had one stop until we were at the airport....It really was super quick...and so inexpensive. Dont be put off by the surrounding area of the hotel...It's not classic Amsterdam so if you want something quaint with pretty surroundings then it 's not the hotel for you. Bike rentals are available from the hotel and we found them to be excellent as the price includes insurance plus they are both high quality and comfortable bikes. It also means that you can cycle into town each day through the beautiful Vondelpark. For me, this was a real perk of having the hotel situated slighly out of the city centre. We ended up hiring the bikes for all of our duration there and i really do think that it's just the best way to see all the sights of this beautiful city.
We couldn't fault the staff at this hotel..They were all very friendly and went out of their way to help us with our questions and requests for directions.
The rooms were of a good size. Clean, light and airy with a good sized bathroom and seperate WC. Do be warned of the glass panels though in the bathrooms..They divide the bathroom and bedroom so you can see straight into the bathroom from the bedroom !!
Overall though, we all thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Amsterdam..Thank you to all the staff for making our stay so wonderful...When we return to Amsterdam we will certainly be staying there again.
