I went with my girlfriend a while ago to the Amsterdam Art Hotel Westcord. We went from the Amsterdam Central Station by bus "line 48" travelled to the hotel. The bus stopped neatly in front. The only problem we had was to do that bus stop was on the other side of a proper busy road without crossing opportunities for pedestrians in the evening so we had four lanes to cross. And this is obviously not useful if you have luggage with you. However it is a nice building to the outside on the street and seeing some nice cows painted as well as Spiderman and Superman. Once crossed, we were quickly noticed by the reception and gave us good information about the area and gave us a handy city map of...Read More

Hotel | "Sail Amsterdam"

Quote:
Sail AmsterdamSail Amsterdam was created to celebrate the 700 anniversary of Amsterdam in 1975. It was such a success that it was worth repeating, since 1975 is held every five years. The event offers an impressive array of Tall Ships from around the world, but there is still much more to do.IJmuidenOnly since 1990 the city of Ijmuiden has been really involved in the evement: Pre Sail IJmuiden. On 14 and 15 August, the festivities starts with the Portfestival IJmuiden. There has been a naval review of old fishing boats and you could see modern commercial ships. Culturally too, there was much to see: classical music, soul, sailor choirs, street performers, children t...Read More

This pizzeria is located on the beukenplein, which is an square in Amsterdam East (near the Wibautstraat, Oosterpark and the OLV Hospital). The building is located on the corner of Beukenplein and half Oosterparkstraat.The RestaurantFrom the outside the building has a nice red color. As you enter, there will be a few tables, but that's more the takeaway department. When it is very busy they will also use this section, but basically you will be brought to the next room. I think it was two old buildings that they have broken through. In the restaurant are about 12 tables, all wood with wooden chairs. It all looks very attractive from. For people with small children they have high...Read More

A short trip to Amsterdam in November and we spend two hotel nights in the Dutch metropolis. I wanted to be relatively centrally located and explore the city on foot. In that regard we choose the Crowne Plaza hotel which looked prefect location wise. The Crowne Plaza Amsterdam is located in the Nieuwezijds Voorburgwal which is 400 meters from Amsterdam central station. The shopping street Nieuwedijk begins at the hotel and the most important tourist attractions are reached on foot even though it is sometimes half an hour along the canal. A car is not needed here and you can park your car near the hotel but costs 40 euro’s per night! From Schiphol Airport you have regular service trains to ...Read More

Hard Rock Cafe

I have to say I had never been in a Hard Rock Cafe so that I do not have the comparison and apparently there are two Hard Rock Cafes in Amsterdam, one of which is probably a fake. I was in the vicinity of the Rijksmuseum and Van Gogh Museum. Noon to about 13 clock so I'm gone with 7 mates to the café and at the entrance we were asked what we wanted. The cafe extends as far as I have seen over 3 floors, in the middle to get in and then you can either go up or down. Even outside on the menu we have seen the extortionate prices, so we really wanted only an Amstel (beer) because it is the cheapest. The bartender told us that it is a beer without alcohol, but that took us not quite...Read More
