I just came back from three great (but expensive) days in Amsterdam. What I really hate about this city is that wherever you go, you have to pay to use the toilets. I understand that you have to pay to use public toilets- but at the Madame Tussaud's which was so expensive? And at eg. a breakfast restaurant (Cafe Luxembourg), McDonalds etc.? 50c to use the toilets is pretty expensive when you've already paid to eat at the place.
There are elderly ladies who have a plate in which they collect the fee. Do they wash the toilets and provide the toiletpaper or something in that direction? Anyway- why can't McDonalds/Madame Tussaud's etc pay their salary? This really made me pissed- being used to use the toilets at the restaurants I eat in for free.
For a family of four- expect to pay about 5-10€ a day just to use toilets around Amsterdam..
