We are staying at the Amsterdam Marriott hotel near the centre of the city. It is perfectly located for walking to historical sites, museums and Leidseplein—the heart of Amsterdam’s nightlife and hub of the tourist scene with restaurants serving food from all around the world. Ask for a room on the inside of the hotel as it can quite noisy if you have a room facing the street.
The historical centre of Amsterdam is quite small and easy to get around by walking, hop on-and-off cruise boats or trams. From the hotel we walked to the Flower Market, the old Jewish Quarter, the Red Light District and Dam Square. Just 5 minutes walk are several Museums and Art Galleries.
