Week-end rates in Amsterdam appear to be at quite a premium in late August/early September. After spending 4 nights at another hotel where week-end accommodations were unavailable we were quite fortunate to have stopped by the Poet where another guest had just cancelled. Based on the high differential between the week-day rates and week-end rates I recommend all week-end visitors to Amsterdam either book several months in advance or plan visits for week-days. Based on Poet rates doing so could save 180% on the room rate and it appears the same differential could exist at other hotels as well.
Weaknesses of this hotel:
No air conditioning.
Breakfast is fairly basic continental although bread consists of toast.
Steep steps into entry.
No wash clothes.
No towel racks--only two hooks.
Limited space for toiletries.
Desk personnel extremely helpful.
Location in Museum quarter and on a lovely street the best in Amsterdam.
Room and bath size highly satisfactory.
Beautifully comfortable bed!
