We stayed for 2 nights, there were 12 of us so we shared between 2 rooms (6 in each). Rooms were clean and tidy, beds comfortable and the rooms of 6 have their own wet room. The toilet is in the corridor but not a problem. We were on the 3rd floor and yes the stairs are steep but you...

Staying in Plantage & the East

Neighbourhood Profile
Plantage & the East
The eastern edge of central Amsterdam provides visitors with the chance to imagine the city that Rembrandt called home (and to tour his historic house) while shopping like the thriftiest of locals at Waterlooplein’s massive flea market, or even enjoying a craft beer beside the tallest wooden windmill in The Netherlands. This verdant, serene, and stately part of town is home to Artis Royal Zoo, one of Europe’s oldest (and still best kept) zoos, and Hortus Botanicus, one of the oldest botanical gardens in the world. It's also an ideal setting for the Dutch outpost of St Petersburg’s Hermitage.
