I stayed at the Royal Amsterdam Hotel for two nights. Indeed, it’s right in the thick of things. The superior room was about $45 a night and was a nice size with a small love seat, table and chair. The bed was a queen and was comfortable enough for the price. The only thing i really don’t like is we’re staying on the 4th floor with no elevator. Not cool after a drunken night at 4am. IT’s about a block away from McDonalds in one direction and Forbidden City and Atlantis in the other.
I doubt you will ever see too many breakfast reviews from me as I don’t tend to roll with that meal!
