The train ride from paris to amsterdam is smooth and quick. There's a sticker for 'I want nothing! You could roller skate in the bathroom, but the cabin lacked sufficient closet and drawer space, and even though it sported a lot of square footage, had no sofa. The lock on my suitcase was missing when I took it out. It is possible to get rooms on the other side they are the odd numbers if you ask at reception when you check in. I'd go somewhere else, myself, at that time of year. Lots of people like Amsterdam, though, so you may too.
If you have a private bathroom attached to the dorm, you could be waiting ages for the shower whilst they are getting ready so mixed dorms have the advantage on this one. The Reijksmuseum is fantastic the building alone is beautiful. Parts of Amsterdam were dingy, but it has been there a long time and can be a letdown for some. Doctors generally speak impeccable English and give generous appointment times. There are a ton of parks.
I always figured it was partly because they resent having to talk in English to you! The flowers will not be in bloom, but you won't be conflicted about staying indoors and can leisurely enjoy the Rijksmuseum, Van Gogh Museum and Ann Frank House. Are you ready to solo travel? Also, statistically girls even drunk ones are less violent than men and safety matters most to me when I travel. You can really enjoy some great hangouts on Zandvoort Van Zee and other places. Also, the Dutch are friendly and of course everyone speaks English. Dropping by unannounced at someone's house is certainly out of the question. The dorm rooms for female travelers only can be smaller e.
We stayed in room 586 at the end of the hall. During sweltering summer days, either bike it or plan a tour via private coaches. In the morning we could hear just a hint of the brakes whining as the trains came into the station, but it was so faint it did not disturb us in the least. A free flight to Amsterdam will start at around 60,000 points on Delta, and you can accumulate that difference through purchases over several months. Keep it real and mind your manners.
Rooms The rooms are pretty small, but very very functional. If you are 5 minutes late for a meeting, however casual that meeting might be, you have to let that person know. Disadvantages of Female Dormitories Both female and mixed dorm rooms have advantages and disadvantages and sometimes you may want to stay in a mixed one and sometimes you may prefer girls only. However, there can be some extra noise in Amsterdam Cabin 6163. Utrecht is as central as you can get there. Even the sleaze zones have a certain Disney-esque quality about them Have you seen Place Pigalle in Paris? We had a wonderful time camping on the island of Texel one summer Yeah health care and taxes can be complicated in the Netherlands.
Maybe its an english thing. Everything was spotlessly clean and my towels were changed daily. Apartments are Expensive, Especially for Expats Like any desirable city, rents are high. As a woman I can deal with messy drunk girls but never had to deal with pervert women trying to hit on me. I disagree with those who say Amsterdam is not friendly or enticing. You could spend weeks in Paris alone then there is Versailles, Giverny, Fontinbleau, Chantilly,Loire Valley.
Anything inside the ringroad A10 is fine to me and to most people, but people prefer different areas within the ring of course. We felt quite safe walking in this area even late at night. Subsequently the Afrikaans language developed there which is Dutch influenced …The Dutch are historically savvy business people and are good with money, similar to Germans. However, what could be the problem with this type of cabin? Amsterdam is ok to visit in the winter, and the sleaze factor is easily avoided if you situate yourself closer to the Museum area. No, nobody's going to hate you for being an American. Thanks Christina, I always value your opinion, and I know you love Paris.
Mid Range: is a comfortable and ultra-modern hotel in Amsterdam. I looked into it at some point and found that zoning laws are strict and supposedly all the food carts hot dog stands, etc are controlled by organized crime syndicates. I don't know a thing about Malta except the name of its capital and that the pictures I've seen are gorgeous. Will this be a problem? It's a wonderful city with the most laid-back residents that's comfortable for just about anyone. I wish I had never heard of it and had never taken a New Year's holiday in this country which smells of marijuana on the street.
