Eden Hotel Amsterdam, Amsterdam, The Netherlands

Eden Hotel Amsterdam is in a perfect location on the Amstel river and just a couple of minutes walk from Rembrandt Square and the tram stop. Pretty much right outside the front door of the hotel is the dock for the Hop On-Hop Off canal boat.

There are heaps of restaurants and bars within a stones throw and it’s an easy walk to many attractions.

Check-in and check-out were both fast, and the concierge was great in pointing me in the right direction and buying me tickets when I needed them.

The hotel itself is a quirky collection of buildings that have been joined together to produce a sprawling hotel complex. My room, which was in an annex in the easternmost part of the hotel had a noticeable downhill slope in the hallway that lead to my room. The Rembrandt Square Hotel Amsterdam is also part of the complex and you can enter the Eden via the Rembrandt Square front door on Amstelstraat.

My room was very small (smaller than the one I had at the Crowne Plaza in Kanazawa) and now takes the prize as the smallest hotel room I’ve stayed in to date. That said, the room was functional, and I got used to the size.

Given the good location, and the ease of access to transport, attractions, restaurants and bars I would probably stay here again.
