Bicycle Hotel was a great, out of the centre base if your planning on being out for most of the day! I booked through a hostel company so I wasn't expecting much, however when we got there I was pleasently suprised! The comunal space was clean and inviting and the staff were superb. There was free internet access within the communal area and you could hire bikes with them if you wanted to. The only issue had a couple of issues, one being the stairs in the place. I had booked for 5 of us to stay, so I had a couple of rooms booked out, theses happened to be on the top floor, which didn't seem so bad when the member of staff handed me our keys, that was until I stood at the bottom of the stairs...they are near vertical and horrendous for getting luggage up. Get back down was even more of a nightmare as you couldn't see the next step infront properly, I had to resort to coming down them in the ballet 1st position (feet outwards!) the whole way down. You had to make sure you had everything with you before you left your room as the hike back up just didn't seem worth it! Apart from that, everything was great!
The staff were great, when we first got there, we had arrived early and they let us leave our bags with them while we went for a wander about. They also helped with the tram system and how was best to get into the centre.
The surrounding areas of the hotel were nice and a lot less crowded and hectic than Amsterdam centre, there's a great market just a couple of streets away, where you can litlerally buy anything! Just a short walk up from the hotel is a square with good restaraunts, and during the day there is a cake shop that can only be seen to be believed! There is also a great pub right near the bicycle hotel which is very friendly and welcoming.
Overall, great place to stay with everything you could need!
