This was my second trip to Amsterdam. I had stayed at another more expensive hotel on my first trip and the NH City Center was by far the best. This is not a large US style hotel, but for the price, it's a great choice. Great restaurants and bars nearby. The shopping district is just 5 - 10 minutes away. And the red light district is just far enough away (15 minutes walk). Hop on the tram for E$1.60 and in 10 mins you're in the museum district. Dam Square is just a short walk away. We're from S. Florida and we loved the weather in April ... cold but not blistering. Great location!
The hotel staff is "top notch", extremely friendly and informative. We booked a tour to Delft/The Hague with them. We had upgraded our room to a "superior" room and I recommend that to everyone. It was a decent size and clean. The bed was quite comfortable and we had asked for a king bed and got it. The only strange thing was that the bed comforter was split into 2 pieces (like 2 twins). The bathroom was small but sufficient and the hot water was really hot .... nice! There is no climate control in the rooms (the temp is set by the hotel centrally), but our room was comfortable and we could open the windows for some fresh air if we needed to. Wood floors and modern deco style furnishings. We had breakfast in the restaurant one morning: great breads and good selection of ham, bacon, cheeses, fruits and cereals. The eggs were not good, so avoid them. We travelled with some friends who had a standard room ... it was very small. Upgrade to a superior room ... the extra $ is worth it!
I would definitely stay here again and we're planning to visit Amsterdam again in 2007.
TIP: When you go, use a credit card for major purchases and a debit card to get get cash at a local ATM (there are many ATM's in AMS). You get the best exchange rate using your cards. Take cash and travellers checks only for emergencies. If you love Chinese food, go to the Sea Palace (a large floating restaurant down by Centraal Station) ... best Chinese food I ever had!
