Just back from a weekend stay in the Mint Double Tree Hotel in Amsterdam,
Great location a few minutes away form Central Station very easy to reach from Schipol and handy suitcase wheeling distance from the entrance of this very beautiful building - nicest train station I have ever seen.
Mere minutes away from bustling Dam Square but also very close to the quaint pretty canalside walks and the quieter districts away from Dam and Red Light District.
Took the Canal Boat Trip but at 75 mins thought it was just that little bit too long - a 60 minute cruise is plenty time to spend there.
Had a very tasty meal in the Blauw Aan De Wal restaraunt - expensive, contmeporary place with dark wooden floors stark white walls and a choice of two starters, mains and desserts but a nice romantic location once you walk past the graffitied alley to reach it!
Try the local drink Janaveres in the American Eden Hotel Bar/Cafe huge high ceilinged, dark wood furniture and nice views out onto Liedsplein.
Any number of small cute little bars all dotted along the cobblestones you will be spoiled for choice - walk around the Red Light Area at night rather than during the day.
Double tree Mint hotel - lovely 4 star - rooms compact but comfortable - hot breakfast just ok - continental breakfast was better - but great staff and a nice Sky Lounge although expensive at 16 euro a cocktail with a lovely birds eye view of Amsterdam from there.
Would certainly return.
