We stayed in a budget-hotel "The Art Gallery" on Weteringschans opposite the Rijksmuseum. Very good value at €75,- for a decent doom en-suite with breakfast. The receptionist Mohammed was the sort of person EVERY accommodation should have. Truly an excellent ambassador for any establishment. He was the very personae of help, charm, attentive to detail that makes staying there a feeling of security and well-being. The hotel is a very typical Amsterdam building one like many I've painted during my 12yrs running a repair and decorating company in Amsterdam. It has small steep narrow staircases and many Europeans to say nothing of N. Americans would baulk at the stairs, however for those on a budget and for younger travellers I can't recommend the Art Gallery (0031 (0)503175510) highly enough. 100 meters from Rijksmuseum with the van Gogh and the Stadelijk behind that - also the Concertgebouw Concert Hall. Right behind the hotel is old Amsterdam with all one would ever want from it. To the right (East) is Liedseplein and to the left and south in the biggest street market in Europe - Albert Cuype - where I lived in the early 80's. Great place to walk , check out the goods (mostly clothes now) and people and sample all the different (World) cuisine. A great hotel in a great city with buckets of ambiance. Say Hi to Mohammed for me.
