Looking for a centrally located, clean and trendy hotel in Amsterdam? For a short business or weekendtrip? Close to Amsterdam Central Station (10 minutes max) and with a string of important tram and bus routes at your doorstep? Look no further! This Westcord property has a welcoming lounging area (a bit dark for my liking, but nice and cosy on winter nights), pleasant front desk staff (although things can get a bit slow when too many holiday makers with all the time in the world try to check in at once) and nice rooms. My room (504) -at the fairly quiet back of the hotel- was not very big, but had all it needed for a stay in which you don't linger in the room. Besides the double bed there was a desk, a reasonably-sized place to hang clothes and quite a large-ish bathroom with excellent shower. The wash basin was made of plastic, so see-through. An interesting effect.... One unfortunate detail: the toilet is quite close to that wash basin, so not much room to maneuver. If you're spending a few days in Amsterdam and you prefer a bit more luxury than you get in some of the surrounding hotels, this would be my bet. I didn't sample the breakfast, but it looked good. However: beware of the night shop right next door for buying anything. I bought a bottle of wine and noticed many articles were not priced. The price I was charged was too high for the quality of my wine and I felt clearly overcharged by the rather unfriendly and abusive family running the place. For good bears go across the road to De Wildeman or to the Arendsnest on Herengracht. Front desk staff can point you in the right direction. Across the street is also a good Indian.
