A friend and I planned a three-night stay at Hotel Fita, which turned into eight nights due to the volcano in Iceland. If you have to be stranded anywhere, this is the place to be. First, the hotel is immaculate, and the beds are super comfortable. Hans, Loes and their team are very professional, handling any request with ease--from directions and a map to help you navigate the city, to restaurant recommendations and taxi reservations to the airport.
The hotel is located in a quiet residential neighborhood, a block away from many upscale shops, and a few minutes' walk to the VanGogh and Rijks museums. Just up the street, there's a tram station that delivers you to many locations throughout the city.
Amsterdam is a great city to explore by walking. What we liked most about the hotel's location: we were less than a 10 minute walk to the beginning of the city's canal rings, yet returned each evening to the quiet, comfortable accommodations of our hotel, away from the tourist hustle and bustle.
Breakfast was served in a lovely room and provided a great start to the day. You'll enjoy fresh coffee, fruit, cheeses, eggs, sausage, yogurt and the most delicious pancakes, while chatting with other hotel guests and swapping restaurant and sightseeing suggestions.
For a fun, entertaining evening out, dine at Pasta E Basta. The food is delicious, and you'll be treated to servers who, as students at a local music school, take the microphone and perform songs in between serving the patrons. You get a great meal and great entertainment all in one place!
We recommend taking a canal cruise, too, as you'll see parts of the city that you wouldn't necessarily see by foot. A note of caution: watch out for the people on bikes. The city is filled with bike pathes, and some of the bikers can be pretty aggressive.
