I will try my best not to gush - but it will be difficult - our stay at Amphora was so wonderful!! We stayed at Amphora for 8 nights , and this place has everything going for it. Firstly, the location - it is on a quiet street , opposite a canal. However, it is a mere 15 minutes walk from the central Dam square and 3 minutes to the tram stop. It is very close to the very moving Anne Frank House, and to the Westermarkt area.
The room is pretty big, very comfortable, and decorated with Greet's artistic flair. And travelers with little kids would understand how my son felt when he opened the bottom drawer of the closet and found it full of toys and a Lego set. " What kind of hotel is this?!" he asked me, awed.
The room has a living area, a kitchenette, and a sleeping area and bath. Breakfast is self service, but Greet and Niels visit with fresh bread and pastries every alternate day. In fact, though the room and location are superb, I would say the best part of the whole experience is the wonderful hosts - they help with travel advice, shopping advice - it's like staying with very close friends.
