Stayed at the Westcord Art Hotel for 3 nights on July 29th. It was my first time in Amsterdam and was very nervous but I needn't of worried.
The man at the information at the Airport have us directions and what type of public transport to use to get to the hotel. After getting off the train we boarded the 48 bus to Hempoint and it stopped off right outside the hotel.
We arrived about 10am and check in wasn't till 3pm but our room was ready so the hotel let us go straight up.
After we unpacked we went down to reception to purchase our bus tickets. We paid €21 for a 96hr bus ticket. We got the number 48 bus right outside the hotel straight into Amsterdam Centraal. The journey took around 10 minutes :-)
Hotel was very quiet at night and first thing in the morning. Breakfast was lovely but if you went a bit nearer the time it was ending then there wasn't much left (which would happen every where)
Variety of the food in the hotel was very good, along with the price of it so we ate out in the Centraal every night. Drinks were also expensive in the hotel but they were in the Centraal as well.
Swimming pool area was good as well but pool was freezing!!
Overall I couldn't fault the hotel and I definitely would go back again. If the price was the same.
