Picked hotel based on price and location more than anything, but was delighted with it. (Yes, it is on a busy noisy street but if you're after quiet empty streets you won't see much of Amsterdam centre) Greeted by Mariska on reception and given strong coffee and warm welcome with a refreshingly humorous and cheeky approach. The reception has small...

This UNESCO World Heritage Site is as historically significant as it is perennially popular.
