This was our first trip to Amsterdam and we deliberated long about where to stay. It wasn't the cheapest of choices, but we decided on a traditional hotel as we wanted to experience the true Amsterdam. We were not disappointed and extremely pleased with our choice. The staff were very friendly, polite & extremely well organised. The room was quite basic but very clean & served our needs. Lovely crisp, fresh cotton sheets. We didn't pay for a canal view but emailed the hotel beforehand asking for a view if possible & they kindly obliged. Shower beautifully clean & lovely & hot. Breakfast was delicious - a small selection of cheese and meat, fruits, cereals, eggs and juices which set us up for the day. It is nice not to be over faced with food. A nice touch was being able to have free coffee/tea in the lounge at anytime after about 12 noon. We were on the 2nd floor and climbing the stairs gave our legs a great work out! The location was fabulous - a lovely area within walking distance of all the tourist attractions, also not too noisy. We were so glad not to be staying right in the centre, which although great to experience, would not be where we would want our hotel. All in all we had a great 4 days and would definitely return to the Wiechmann Hotel. Point to note, if you enjoy cycling, hire a bike - we travelled all around the centre, had a lovely trip around Vondel Park and cycled alongside the Amstel Canal out into the countryside which was great. You can pay for a guided tour to do the Amstel Canal trip, however we just asked at reception and it was so easy to do it yourself and choose how far to go and stop when you like.
