We stayed at the ITC hotel in early February 2010 ... we were apprehensive
after reading some reviews ... we had booked a double room with a canal
view ... however when we arrived the room was double booked so we had a
back room (number 6, third floor) - no canal view ... the room itself
was okay ... the separate shower and toilet were fine ... with lots of
hot water on demand .. the heating was very efficient ... no view to
speak of ... just overlooking another house ... the room was big enough
... decoration was okay ... some of the other rooms might be smaller
... but it's a place to sleep, not to live ... all are clean, warm and
comfortable (we had a look at some whilst the housekeeper cleaned).
The next day we moved to room 7 (a triple room) overlooking the canal
(also on the third floor)... its a big room ... with three beds ( we
used two) so plenty of room to stretch out ... we were very happy with
this room ... again the shower and toilet were good ... the hot water
and heating excellent.
The staff were very helpful ... although there were no tea and coffee
making facilities in the room ... there is a machine in the reception
where you can get free tea and coffee to take to your room ...
breakfast (7.50 euros) was fine ... the usual continental fare ...
bread/toast, cereal, meats, eggs, cheese, orange juice, tea and coffee
etc. ... self service ... as much as you wanted.
The stairs were steep and winding ... but this is what you must expect
in a old converted canal house ... it all adds to the charm of
Amsterdam ... the stop and go bus will stop outside the hotel if you
hail it (1 euro 1 hour - excellent value and one every 10 - 15 minutes)
and will drop you off at any point on route to the station ... the
number 4 tram stops on the bridge outside the hotel.
Overall ... this is a clean and friendly hotel ... the sheets and
towels were fresh and changed regularly ... the housekeepers were
friendly ... and would change sheets/towels etc if asked ... This is
not a five star hotel ... if you want a sterile homogenized environment
... then you need to go a modern sealed double glazed hotel ... at this
one you can open the windows and experience the sights and sounds of
Amsterdam ... We would recommend this 2 star hotel as a good base for
