My friend and I stayed in the Hotel Aalders for three nights in April and had a fabulous stay. All the staff were really lovely, welcoming and could not have been more helpful. The room, though we knew it would be small, was great. Clean with everything we could need:hairdryer, shower gel, a window that opened (great these days of air conditioning), a really comfy bed and pillows, an excellent, big shower and a telly with English channels.
The location has to be seen to be believed. Five minutes to three major museums, to the tram stop into town, to the canal boats and to the bus stop to and from airport.
One tip is to buy tickets for the Blue Boat Canal trip from the hotel as it is 5 euros cheaper. It also helped us to buy tickets for the Rijks museum and the Van Gogh gallery at the hotel as we then could skip the queues.
I would recommend this hotel to all my friends and would go back with my husband and teens to a family room.
