Well disappointed what they advertise and what you get is totally different. The receptionist was rude, cold and patronising. The access is dark and dodgy. The boats are shabby, broken lights, filthy coverings, you can see a lot of people have been before you. So...More

Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of
tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists
and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the
best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe.
Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops
of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones
Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods
such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring
