Caught the 195 from the airport plaza. Locals very friendly and pointed us in right direction € 4 each. Driver pointed out the Artemis no problem.
We were made very welcome on arrival and despite arriving very early were allocated a room quickly. Was informed about the city tax of about €50, wasn't informed that we'd be charged € 3.50 City tax per night on top of this. Not the hotels fault that the city wants its cut.
The room was twin beds and very quiet and comfortable. When we first arrived I noticed a few problems in the bathroom but the staff rectified these by the time we returned from exploring Amsterdam. Room was cleaned well.
The hotel is some distance from the centre. But we paid for a 72 hr travel card
Which meant we could use trams, buses etc. this cost about €36 for two of us. Trams and buses very regular so made it very easy to hop on and off. Never waited more than a few minutes. It was a little annoying to be so far out of the centre, especially as we'd asked last minute . Com for a central hotel, but the exercise made us feel good , despite the freezing cold winds during our stay.
Didn't bother with breakfast .. As we felt €19 each was expensive. Had a meal on our final night and it was good. Indonesian was tasty and reasonable price for what we got.
We enjoyed our stay overall . The art was interesting. Service good. Staff helpful.
We decided 3 days exploring the city was enough and headed to Haarlam for our last day. Caught the 195 back to the airport and then the 300 to Haarlam. Bought a family travel day ticket as this was the cheapest option suggested by the driver.
Worth the effort despite the small blizzard !
