I've visited Amersfoort twice so far, on business. The first time, I stayed at a hotel recommended by my host. Don't recall the name, but it was average. It has a large Buddha in front.
The second time, I did my own research and discovered Logies de Tabaksplant. Bingo! I took a "luxury" room with whirlpool bath, which cost 100 Euros so -- ok -- not exactly cheap, and I can't vouch for the lesser rooms, but it was very nice and modernized. Not big, by US standards, but nice. And the staff is great. It's a small hotel (24 rooms) run by a friendly husband and wife who live there so, for example, you may get to meet their dog. I'm just saying it's got personality. I liked that.
Plus, the hotel has a history: It was originally the home of a tobacco merchant who lived downstairs and stored his inventory upstairs -- hence, the hotel's name.
They've installed some free high-speed internet connections downstairs where breakfast is served and are working on adding wireless access. BTW, the breakfasts are good.
The location is just outside one of the old city gates, so access to the "old" (i.e., downtown) city is easy.
If you know a better place to stay in Amersfoort, speak up. Meanwhile, I'm returning next month and you know where I'm staying.
