Nova Hotel - a gem in Amsterdam
We stumbled on this hotel, purely by accident, when it offered a special price over the internet. In fact, to date, we've never paid their rack rate, simply because it's basically a weekend hotel - it's busy on weekends but not during the week.
It is ideally situated on Nieuwezijds Voorburgwal, which is easier to get to than pronounce! The tram stop for trams 1, 2, and 5 is almost right outside the door, so from Schiphol you can take the train, and from the station, a tram. It's only a 5-minute walk to the Dam, has restaurants, coffee shops, markets, a shopping centre, museums, and more all within easy proximity. The infamous Supper Club is just across the road too!
Staff are super-friendly and a continental breakfast is included in the price. Virtually next door is a huge shopping complex which includes a takeaway food place which will heat up the food for you if you wish so you can take it back to the hotel with you if you are trying to save some money.
More recently they have expanded to offer self-catering apartments as well, though we didn't stay in those as we prefer the location of the hotel instead.
Rooms are clean and tidy, though bathrooms a little small, TV/cable is available as are tea/coffee making facilities amd all the rooms have fridges, which is great for storing food, drinks etc..
Best suited to those who want a little of the creature comforts but don't want to pay too high a price for them.
In particular I love their fluffy, warm duvets! [more ]
