Subject: Re: Amsterdam May, 2000
Hi Gretchen, I love the Ambassade it is a wonderful canal house (lots of character) right on a main canal, very centrally located and a good value (though not budget). We had a canalside room filled with antiques. The breakfast room is astonishing, with a floor to ceiling window looking out upon a canal, and the breakfast is pretty good as well. This is the place to go for a real taste of Amsterdam. I believe it is on the Herengracht Canal. Do try to make to over to the Bejinhof if possible, its a small slice old Amsterdam, right near the Hotel. The hotel has free bicycles, for a complete thrill get one of them and ride around the city, this is one of my most memorable moments.....and I lived to share them! Hope this helps, Amelia :)
