"Rembrandt Residence Traditional Hotel Dam Square" The Hoxton, Amsterdam Tip by LolaSanFrancisco

The Hoxton, Amsterdam, Amsterdam: 842 reviews and 6 photos

  It's going to be COLD in November!
by LolaSanFrancisco

A group of us are going to be taking over this hotel November 19-26. 2005. I can't wait! Here is a "Site Inspection Report" done by a travel agent. When we get back I'll give the low down-word up.

Independent Report

This hotel is a stone's throw from the oldest part of Amsterdam and the Royal Palace and overlooking one of Amsterdams beautiful canals.
The rooms vary in size from small to large due to the age of the building. They are modern but simple in style, although some still retain their original wooden beams which are typical of the buildings from this century. Along with the bathrooms, their condition is fair to good. A very small percentage have, however, been totally renovated in modern style, and are in very good condition.
The hotel does not have its own restaurant, but there is a breakfast room situated on the lower ground floor with natural daylight which can be used for groups.
It is uniquely set in four 17th century houses right on the city's most prestigious canals. The facade is typical of this distinct style.
In contrast to the traditional exterior, the small lobby is more modern, but there are still strong touches of tradition. This area also includes a cosy bar and comfortable lounge area.
This hotel is ideal for both groups and individuals wishing to experience the true character of old Amsterdam. However, please note that it is not possible for coaches to reach the entrance of the hotel so drop off will have to be in a nearby street. 04/04/jg
