My family (husband and I, two late teenage children) spent 3 nights in Amsterdam before Christmas. We wanted an affordable (3-star) hotel in a pleasant part of Amsterdam (away from the station area grot), with easy access to all the sights - plus a good Tripadvisor review! This hotel met these requirements and subsequently exceeded our expectations. Situated just beyond the Concert Hall, the tram stops virtually outside; Riksmuseum canal stop is about 5 mins walk and all of the 'lower' half of the city is an easy walk. Despite an early flight arrival, our rooms were ready at 9.30am. The Dutch hotelier on reception was incredibly helpful and welcoming. He gave us a map with highlighted tram routes (and info on where/how to buy/use tram tickets, often something we find tricky!), good places to eat, generally nice bits of the city to wander round etc; The rooms clean, well-fitted, decent size (ours was actually a large corner room, v nice); breakfast well-stocked (included in hotel price, unusual). Ok, maybe stair carpets a wee bit shabby, but this was a sightseeing break! Nothing too much trouble for staff, would definitely return to this hotel (note it's called 'Leidesplein' in Dutch.) We should also have used the hotel for taxi transfers to Schippol, which would have cost 32.50EUR each way. I made the mistake of pre-booking the Connexion hotel bus transfer via the City-Discovery website (World-Air-Transport) who charged 128EUR for four of us for return tickets with a face value of 21EUR each! (and we would have qualified for a further 10EUR group discount!) So much for a website 'guaranteeing best prices'!
