A ten minute walk to the central train station. You can walk to anywhere in Amsterdam in 30 minutes. The hotel is comfortable, clean and the staff is friendly and efficient. We had an inside room with no view but it was quiet and that was important to us. The hotel has a sidewalk cafe with a small pub which was really nice. They also have a larger bar area but that is relatively dark and in need of updates. You can walk to the red light district in 5 minutes but it is rather seedy and there are so many beautiful areas of Amsterdam that I would not waste much time in the red light district. I recommend taking the "Hop-on-Hop-off" canal boat ride. For one fee you can spend all day going from one place to another, or just stay on the boat and view the entire city to determine what part you want to revisit on foot. I highly recommend the VanGogh Museum, the Rijksmusem, the Canal Museum and the Ann Frank house. Try to go online and make a reservation for the Ann Frank house. You will need to do it about 30 days before your visit. If you have a car you should just leave it at the hotel and walk around the city. I wouldn't even consider driving around this city, the roads are narrow, there is no parking and you will spend all your time dodging bikes and pedestrians. And, if you think it would be fun riding a bike around the city you are crazy. if you want to ride a bike then get one near Vondelpark and ride around in Vondelpark. It is a large park near the Rijksmuseum and is beautiful. The park also has a few places in it where you can stop for a beer or a glass of wine. Please remember to rate this review. Thank you.
