12 of us stayed at the hotel for a stag do in Amsterdam at the end of April. As you can imagine trying to find somewhere willing to take on some many people and not cost a fortune was quite tricky at first but after a thorough search round of hotels I was struck by Hotel Remco’s pictures, price and availability. Booking with them was extremely straightforward and should you wish it there is always the option to have breakfast. As to the hotel, it and the bedrooms/bathrooms were clean and every bit what you would expect for a 3 star. In fact they were considerably more spacious than some 4 stars I have stayed in.
The staff, apart from an initial problem with the booking in staff, were very helpful and the bar and pool table were well used by us during our short stay. We also met some very friendly Australians who gave us advice on the best way to get into town.
There is also a supermarket nearby plus some local restaurants in case you are interested.
As a whole our party enjoyed our stay at the Hotel Remco and I would definitely recommend it.
Plusses – practical, no frills, good value for money.
Flaws – staff were a bit rude when we arrived as I couldn’t get a signal on my phone so I was unable to access the booking number and they refused to accept my surname as confirmation of our arrival. Apart from that they were very helpful.
The cheapest way to get there: if you are coming from the airport catch the 69 bus outside the departures terminal and get off at Vrijzicht. Take the next left to Osdorper Ban and walk down the road for about 5-10 minutes, turn right past the church after the bridge and the Spar and the hotel will be ahead of you. Travelling by bus will cost you €2.80 each a shuttle bus will cost you €16.50 each.
If you plan on using a lot of public transport while in Amsterdam, you might as well it is very good, you can get a travel card which will save you even more.
Upon leaving the hotel walk back towards the main road, take the little bridge over the stream and follow the cycle path to your left. After a minute or two ahead of you will be the tram. Take this to Dam or the main train station, it should take about 20 minutes, half an hour at rush hour and again travel cards will save you money.
Oh and watch out for cyclists, they are everywhere.
