The hotel had a long line at the reception when we arrived, so I thought it would be a lively hotel. It really wasn't though. The carpet was awful, but the room was spacious and comfortable. Yes, the bathroom door was just frosted on the middle third. Didn't even know there was a bar downstairs until a couple of nights into the stay.
Location was good. Rembrandt square seemed to be the trendy spot to go out even for the locals. Smokeys was there and a couple of lounges and probably the largest club in town, Escape. We walked to the red light district, museums, and leidseplein. We went to the van gogh museum and walked through the anne frank huis. They are a must. Heinekin experience was okay. At the end, you get to hang out in a bar and it is fun. The place is very touristy and not original at all. The walk was a little long to get to those places, but an enjoyable city to see on foot. Amsterdam was fun. I don't know if I have any other recommendations on places to stay. This area was pretty good. Ate at wok to walk everyday.More
