    Worst experience ever! I truly don't understand how some people can have rated Bob's as excellent. The only possible explanation is that they were high while doing so. My friend and I stayed three nights there. The wifi didn't work properly. The toilet was dirty...More

    Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of
    tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists
    and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the
    best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe.
    Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops
    of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones
    Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods
    such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring
