We were in Amsterdam for a football match (Europa League Final). We stayed at the Amstelzicht hotel for two nights. The hotel is located facing one of the many canals with just a 10-minute walk to Dam Square or the bars and night area to the east side of main drag, back towards the station. In fact it’s easy to just walk north and you will arrive in the red light area and night bar area. Rembrandt square is just to the south of the hotel, around the corner – turn right & right, a 3-minuyte walk. There are night bars there, and a large English Pub that is worth a visit (football on tv and good snack menu).
Back to the hotel - we had a triple room, which was located downstairs in like a half basement, or like a mezzanine level. Actually, one has to walk up half a flight of stairs to enter the hotel. Our room was down half a flight of stairs from the lobby area, so to speak. The room was basic, but did the job. There was a TV in the room, plus tea/coffee making facilities, but we didn’t try the tv or use anything. The room was clean and did the job.
The receptionist was helpful, although the older guy needed to get a sense of humour at first. But the girls were more than helpful with information. And were happy to make us a nice coffee while we waited for others in our party.
There isn’t a bar in the hotel, I don’t think, but that isn’t a problem as there are bars next door (even an Irish bar 2 doors down) - and we had breakfast around the corner in the English pub on the corner in Rembrandt Square.
All in all, the hotel does the job and is a reasonable price. We’d stay there again, so it must’ve been ok. Recommended.
