Just returned from a four day visit to Amsterdam booked at short notice. We needed a room for three people but most places charged silly money. After much searching I found villa Borgmann and decided to take a chance. We arrived two hours before check in time but the room was ready so it was not a problem. The room was at the front of the hotel and was not the biggest of rooms, but perfectly adequate. The beds were comfortable and the en suite had a lovely large bath you could really relax in -just as well considering all the walking we did!
There was parking in front of the hotel although it was rather expensive. The alternative is to park in the park and ride about a mile away for a third of the cost, but I would rather have the car where i can keep an eye on it, rather than a long way away in an open parking area.
Breakfast in the hotel was typically continental, with meat, cheese, bread, eggs, fruit, and yoghurt. Perfectly adequate. There is a pleasant walk through the park ( behind the hotel ) to the city, or you can stroll a few hundred yards to the tram stop. Trams are very frequent and you can buy a ticket for one or more days, so it's just a case of hoping on and off whenever you want. A great way to get around.
Everyone in Amsterdam is very friendly and helpful, and that goes for the staff at the hotel as well. Would I stay there again? You bet I would, and I would happily recommend it to others.
