On a recent trip to Amsterdam I stayed at the Freeland Hotel.
The location of the hotel is well placed for walking the historic centre and canals. Just walk across the road and you come across the first of them.
The receptionist I spoke to was extremely knowledgeable about the area and gave me many ideas for places to go.
There was one niggle which was the breakfast. It wasn't the typical continental one that you get in a lot of hotels. rather you have to wait until you are served. Also, you are not asked what you would actually like rather it is given to you. So for example, I was given a plate with meat and cheese on it. Well, I am vegetarian so that put paid to that.
If you're not good at stairs then you'll struggle in the Freeland. Due to the age of the building there are the typically steep stairs that they have in Holland. is this a bad thing? No because it means its authentic but you need to be aware of it. The breakfast is what knocked the point off for me.
Overall though the hotel is very good, clean and welcoming staff. Tighten up on breakfast and you have a winner.
