Abcoude itself is a lovely town, and the center of town is an easy ten-minute walk from the train station, situated about halfway between Amstelveen and Utrecht. The hotel, though, was less impressive.
The room booked for a night wasn't available, although that wasn't mentioned at check-in. Nor was the fact that the pre-paid WiFi (purchased at the front desk like many small hotels in Europe) didn't reach to the room in which I was staying. Nor was it mentioned that the room I was staying in was under construction. The website pictures must have come from a completely different hotel, as I can best figure it out, because the leftover crisps and portions of a Hindi newspaper made me think I was back in a smaller city in India.
Snapped a few pics, which I tried to upload via the stray WiFi signal I picked up by opening the window and leaning out to catch a signal from a nearby grocery store, but the rain precluded me from uploading them or a review at the time of the stay.
In addition, this is the only hotel I've stayed at in the past five years, anywhere in the world, that shows your full credit card number on the receipt. Not the kind of CC slip you'd want to accidentally drop somewhere...
