February Half Term, so I took my 11 year old grand-daughter for a short break holiday. What a brilliant choice. This hotel is in a perfect location, close to Dam Square, and has lots of character. Staff are knowledgeable and very helpful. Hotel breakfast buffet had plenty of choice. Waffles and pancakes were popular. Good coffee.
We walked from the station but mostly used the Trams as the stop was outside the hotel. Amsterdam has some great attractions for children. Don`t miss NEMO, the science museum for all ages. We were there for 5 hours. Amazing place. The canal boat ride was interesting but one hour was enough. The bus tour was OK but only a little information on each venue in lots of different languages.
Rijks Museum was absolutely amazing and hotel concierge booked the highlights tour. Really good idea. You are in a small group, you get to the front of the crowds (especially children)and the informative commentary means you see things that others might miss. After it`s 10 year renovation this museum has the WOW factor. Also worth a visit for adults or sophisticated 11 year olds was" the Eye" This brand new masterpiece of architecture is home to cinema entertainment and a stunning restaurant.
