"Only a short walk from Dam" Cordial Hotel Tip by lotharlerch

Cordial Hotel, Amsterdam: 499 reviews and 3 photos

Searching the web this hotel looked like a reasonable deal (all bettter deals were already fully booked despite the for Amsterdam rather unusual season). And in fact it is centrally located but the first surprise was that the section of the Rokin street just in front of the hotel was a huge construction site for the Amsterdam Metro (I thought that at least in the center all this work was already done long ago....) But it was somewhat less noisy than it could have been).

Unique Qualities: Since the centre of Amsterdam is full of hotels the central location is not a unique quality. One thing I saw on the hotel website were the two words "gay friendly" but I did not take special attention to it because many Amsterdam hotels write it and we were happy to be accepted here as hetero couple but latest at the first breakfast we noticed that we were a clear minority... The exact description would be more gay than friendly

The room contained all what must be in a 2-star hotel but all at the absolute minimum. The table for example was not bigger than the phone plus the guidebook and two digital cameras. And only at one side of the double bed was something like a bedside table.

The breakfast was definitely not the excellent quality I found in other Dutch hotels earlier.
