The armada hotel is his two star category was fair, but the room is covered to evaluate. Especially annoying, that for a payment of the hotel expenses (Visa) or by credit be 3%, which was the price for a further increase. The central location of the hotel seems to be the owner, the prices corresponding to designed. The room itself has an estimated size of 10M ² and is very Spartan. There is only one small closet with two drawers, a bedside table, a small table with chair and a double bed. The mattresses were totally worn out and the bed including significantly dirty. In the closet or two yellowed and dirty pillows and dirty blanket also. The wall-mounted tv received only a Dutch television channel. The bathroom was so small, that one could hardly move. The sink-mounted shelf and hanging from the wall plug, the shower was not separated by a shower curtain, so that the use of the entire area was wet. Mold was in significant volume in the tile joins the shower area too. To emphasize was positive, that every day the towels were changed and the beds were changed every two days. Overall cleanliness could be regarded as satisfactory. The offered and free wireless Internet worked, apart from some losses, very good. The breakfast buffet consisted of those components, as in the previously wrote reviews has been described. In addition to jam, there were cold cuts, consisting of salami, cooked ham, and cheese. The rolls were mushy SESAME or burger rolls. The cereal consisted of two sorts. The coffee was taken from a machine and tasted very pleasant. Furthermore, out of cocoa and coffee drinks that other be selected. Tea was available but only with a sort of. The hotel is definitely for short stays of 2-3 days acceptable to look at. Furthermore, you should then rather to look more demanding hotels. From the hotel one is in few minutes away from the vibrant Rembrandt plein, featuring many bars, restaurants and nightclubs. Only a few minutes 'walk from there entferrnt the flower market and the single kalverstraat shopping street, which leads directly to the most central square in town, the dam. This national monument beach chairs, the department store 'de bijenkorf', the royal palace, the Nieuwe kerk and the Madama Tussaud wax museum of. To the train station Amsterdam Centraal arrives with nearly all scheduled Tramlininen centre about ten minutes. With the passenger car is very quickly also the stay very expensive, because the charge for an hour parking costs 5 €per hour. A stay in Amsterdam is certainly not to be described as 'cheap ', but the flair of the canals metro pole for some and offers a varied cultural events places of relaxation, in the many parks in the city. Basically here every visitor of the city well at its expense! … read hotel review
