Arriving in Amsterdam on Kings Day morning was quite an experience. Since no transportation was available from the central station, we had to walk. Maps were a little confusing, so it took us a long time to make it to the hotel. That was the only negative aspect of the hotel -- but I guess getting lost wasn't their fault. We were welcomed and given a room right away. This small boutique hotel is in the quite museum neighborhood only a few blocks from the Van Gogh and the Rijksmuseum and about a 15 minute walk into the heart of the town. Rooms were a little small, but very comfortable and modern. The room was quiet, bed was very comfortable, great shower, and fantastic towels and sheets. The staff was warm and welcoming and had a great breakfast. Amsterdam can be a hectic town, and this hotel offered peace! It was a great way to start the vacation.
If you ever want a mind blowing experience, go to Amsterdam on Kings Day. The town is completely packed and everyone is singing, dancing, laughing and celebrating their kings birthday. If you go, wear orange. Only negative about this day (April 26) was the transportation to the city was closed. If you want to go to the Van Gogh or the Rijksmuseum make sure you go early in the morning and get your tickets ahead of time. This hotel sold us our tickets for both museums and didn't have to wait in any line.
