Eastern, the time when the first flood of tourists boom the city. We booked the hotel thru Ebookers. While arriving the hotel from airport we choose a taxi to get in quickly. Beware of the taxi's if you're on low budget. They're quite expensive to drive by.
The staff @ Galaxy was smiley and helpfull. We got answer to every question even the silly ones. The room was Superior but it actually is not that superior. Ordinary room with windows, quite firm bed. Thought we had a smoking room so maybe that did the difference.
Room service worked quite nicely thru our 4days visit. They forgot things while ordering but we got that cleared quite well. Just be exact what you want while ordering. And if you wonder how the rooms are cleaned; just take the "im sleeping" patch outta the doors handle and they clean it super fast. We rolled the roomservice trays allways outside the door and the garbage and stuff did vanish in no time. That makes if you want to "sleep" all vacation and not to be disturbed.
Everyone greeted us in every corner. The Cabin Crew people didn's bother us. The noices or the different arrival of planes crew never bothered us. The hotel is quite quiet.
Downstairs the bar is excellent and the food is superb! They got billiards too.
And i must admit you gotta love those green apples and the anti-oxidant theme. The greenpatch which they got few years ago didn't go in vain. Good job on health aspects!
Noord Amsterdam is really a good place to see. Just go in and wander those local pubs and market-places. Local people are good fellas. Theres a new pizzeria too real close to Galaxy and they sure offer you the best pizzas and service in whole Amsterdam. A must place to visit. And if you happen to get any hangoverish, drop in at the falal-kebab place also really close to Galaxy. They serve you good stuff.
The local noord Marketplace sells you stuff so cheap that when you plunder into main-Amsterdam with ridicilous prices you wonder how the tourists and the mainsquare pumps you out of your money.
Don't stay in middle of Amsterdam, go south.
The Galaxy Hotel shuttle is quick and nice to get along into the heart of Adam.
We loved the hotel, the staff and the people innit. We'll be back...
