Customer Travel Tip: Be prepared to spend an arm and a led for sub par accommodation.

Liked: The architecture and atmosphere in Amsterdam is great! Public transport can bring you anywhere from just about any point, there are plenty of museums, bikes are very accommodated by drivers, and many people speak English well.

Disliked: Too many young adults smoking weed, being loud, and obnoxious. But I guess that is the appeal of Amsterdam to many people. Also very expensive!

Customer Travel Tip: Arrive at Schipol airport, go down the escalators to the train station below, and Amsterdam Centraal Station is only 3 or 4 stops away.. Its as easy as that.. To hire a bike, it is around 13 to 15 euros for 24 hours, you wont regret it ! The bike centres give you a tourist map, then you just go and ride all over Amsterdam and visit all the special places.. Make sure you lock up your bike to a lamp post or bike stands, or you will have to pay 770 euros if it gets stolen.. Jerome K griffin UK

Liked: Everything ! Everyone is so chilled and well mannered. We never seen any trouble on the streets. It is so easy to travel around Amsterdam.

Disliked: Yeah ! We would have loved to have stayed there longer ha ha..
