This small hotel is really situated in a place that is very practical for the tourists. It is In front of a canals bridge where is a Tram station (if you want to use this useful transit for the city center). The Leidseplein square is behind of hotel 2 min walk where you can find a small market and a lot of cafes, bars, coffee shops and restaurants! The Argentines Cuisine “smells” everywhere… The Museum Area is to the same direction 15 min walk. At the other side, eastern of hotel there is the flower market (5 min. walk) and walking straight you meet the Kalverstraat (maybe the biggest shopping street) going left you reach the central Dam Square (almost 20 min walk from hotel). About the hotels “running”, the place is clear, the staff is kind and our Room 503 (balcony-canal view) was big and cozy! If you leave the windows open you’ll understand that you are in noisy area. Trams and people passing are endless… until the first morning hours (The nights are crazy in Amsterdam). Breakfast was OK, more than basic, and it’s serviced at the place of Restaurant Thijs.(nice place). Note that sleepers and bathrobes are not at the hotel’s amenities. The conclusion is that Dikker Hotel is a Decent place to stay and enjoy it!
