Due to a large convention in Amsterdam, I was unable to secure rooms for more than 1-2 nights at any hotel. I found the Hotel Golden Bear through [--]. The hotel is near the Rijk Museum and close to the Leidseplein. Tram 1 and 5 from AMS Central Station runs right near the hotel, a 10 minute tram at the most. I was only able to get 2 nights at this hotel, and paid 100 Euros per night for a room with twin beds and private bath. The room was large, incredibly clean, comfortable and well appointed. The TV worked very well, the room also had a DVD player and radio. Toiletries were provided. The view was of a courtyard below. The hotel is on a quiet sleep, with little noise. The bed(s) were very good, the linens very good quality – and I slept very well. Breakfast was served in a room on the main floor off reception. Each guest is served separately with a plate of cheese, meat, coffee, breads etc. It is ample. Hotel staff was very helpful and approachable. I would definitely stay here again – it was a pleasant stay.
