Hotel Weber is situated just a short walk away from the bustling Lidsesplien area and within easy walking distance of most of Amsterdam's key attractions. The hotel is accessed by a single front door from the pavement which leads to a very steep flight of stairs (typical Amsterdam so quirky and part of the experience) taking you to the hotel office and then further up to the rooms.
We'd read the lower rooms can be a bit noisy - the hotel sits above a bar- so booked room 7 at the top of the building. It's a real climb to get up to the room, so you'll need to be steady on your feet, but the room was well proportioned with a large bed, small breakfast area with sink, fridge and coffee maker. The shower area and toilet - a kind of wet room combo - was ideal though it did get steamed up quite quickly.
The room was wonderfully quiet though even up here you get the odd rumble of the trams running by. It was to the rear of the hotel with a view over a patch of water and allowed plenty of light in. Every morning a basket of breads was left outside and the fridge was re-stocked with milk, meat, cheese, yoghurt and a selection of spreads during the day. Eating out can be pricey so we made the most of the opportunity to stock up before the days wanderings.
Amsterdam seems to be a pretty pricey place to stay and 550 euros for 4 nights in the Weber was perhaps a bit more than I'd expect to pay for a similar room back in the UK. That said, I wasn't disappointed with what it offers and it really did add to the whole Amsterdam experience.
