The price for this place was the only upside, other than that, the amenities here were lack luster. The lady who greeted us upon check in was nice but other than her the rest of the staff were rude. We have gone on dozens of cruises so we expected something similar to that but these were the most basic of...

I've stayed in three different places in Amsterdam and this one falls second, only beaten by an amazing deal I had the first time there. The good: Popular, well connected to a ferry that takes you to town every 15/30 mins depending on the time of day. Parking was close but we were lucky to find one, I suggest you...
