Our son recently moved to Amsterdam for his career and is loving the way of life there, come over for the weekend and I'll show you some of the sights said he, so off we went.
Rather than stay in his one bedroom apartment in Vondelpark we stayed at the Park Plaza hotel just across the road, the hotel is a clean and tidy place to stay with free WIFI and perfectly acceptable rooms, although the corridors tend to be a little pink, if you stay here you will see what I mean for yourself. The bar is reasonably priced and well tended by the staff and reception is efficient and well presented, our check in and out was painless and quick.
Overall I would recommend this hotel to any traveller looking to stay short term in Amsterdam.
What I would find difficult to recommend is the national airline KLM. We have travelled three times with this airline, an amalgamation of KLM, Air France and Delta Airlines of America and only once without incident. Our first taste of KLM was from Amsterdam to Milan for our friends wedding in Stressa on lake Majori in Northern Italy, on this occasion they managed to lose my suitcase and I therefore attended a society wedding dressed in borrowed casual clothes, the suitcase arrived 24 hours later, without explanation. Next was our latest trip to Amsterdam where we flew there without incident and enjoyed our weekend seeing the amazing sights of Amsterdam to find on checking in at the airport for our return journey we had been put on standby for some reason, why us we don't know, we booked our flights at the beginning of January and checked in online as we were supposed to do but KLM had changed the aircraft from an Airbus A320 type which has 2 sets of 3 across seats to a City Hopper which only has 2 sets of 2 across seats leaving passengers without seats for their return journey and causing much distress to their customers, I have to say at this point that we did get on the aircraft, but other travellers appear to have been left at the gate to get a later plane. Treating your customers in this way is not acceptable KLM you cannot rely on passengers not showing up and reducing places aboard your aircraft.
