On my first trip to Amsterdam, I decided to stay at the Hotel Misc (Eat Drink Sleep) after reading about it online. The location was great- it was a relatively easy 10 minute walk from the train station to the hotel. My three favorite things about the hotel were: the breakfasts, overall comfort, and the location.
Insanely comfortable beds
Unlimited complimentary mini-bar
Peaceful garden view
Delicious daily breakfasts (amazing granola, toast and jam, cheese and meat, croissants, bacon and eggs, fruit, fresh-squeezed OJ, etc.)
Hotel Misc is located at Kloveniersburgwal 20 in Amsterdam
