I was in Amsterdam for a conference at the Westergasfabriek, and found this small, enticing hotel just 5 minutes away by foot (there are no other hotels in the immediate vicinity). Amazing! It has everything you need to live in its 3 compact stories: fully-equipped kitchen with washing machine and dishwasher, wi-fi, living area, comfortable bedroom/closet/bath. We arrived before check-in, but were allowed to leave our bags and check out the neighborhood while the Windketl was being cleaned. A bus can take you directly to Cantraal Station, a tram to the museum area. You can walk to the Jordaan and its restaurants or just hang out in the Westerpark. We entertained some friends one evening -- all of whom are now jealous of us, and also ready to book the Windketel the next time they are in Amsterdam!.
