      hotel location

      Amsterdam Jan 19, 2017 at 7:04 AM

      I hadn't intended to ask this question quite yet, but I am thinking of flying into Amsterdam in 2018 and staying there a couple of days to see the city and get over jet lag before we fly to Kilimanjaro for a safari. I will be with my granddaughter who is a tiny little girl. I am currently using a scooter to get around, but I don't think my granddaughter will be able to pick up the scooter which weighs about 60 lbs. I can walk a short distance, but I cannot stand for more than about a minute without back pain and once my back starts to hurt I am finished for the day. That means that even standing in an elevator can be a problem.

      I don't think that a scooter will be useful on safari and I am hoping that I can get along with just a cane that I can sit on. We will have a car and driver so most of my walking will be in the safari camps. I think I can do from the car to the room and from the room to dinner.

      Also I thought we would take the hopon-hopoff canal boat trip and I don't think the scooter will be that useful there and I would be using the cane. The problem would come in getting to and from the canal boat.

      Is there a hotel where I could stay there and then leave the scooter in storage while we go on the safari? Or is there any kind of rental place where I could rent one when i got there? I have stayed at a hotel where they had a wheelchair, but Bob had to push and I don't think my granddaughter will have enough mass to be able to wrangle me in a wheelchair (her two siblings also had a problem with this).

      And what would be the best hotel/location to be able to see Amsterdam. Are there hotels with airport pick-up?

      Do you have any other suggestions

    • Tulip timing 2012

      by efsunderland Online Now Feb 25, 2012 at 8:11 AM

      Is there any information at this time about how the extreme cold this winter may affect the timing of the tulip blossoms? We are hoping to visit about the 12th and 13th of April. If the tulips are not ready, would we expect something else worth seeing at Keukenhof?

      Golden Tulip Lisse Hotel and Restaurant De Nachtegaal

      by globetrekker_airen Online Now Apr 8, 2009 at 1:58 PM


      We are going to Lisse this spring to visit Keukenhof. Since we are travelling with our baby, I have several questions regarding :

      1. Golden Tulips Lisse Hotel
      - Does anyone have more info about this hotel?I was trying to find some reviews about this hotel but found only a few not-so-good ones.
      - Are there any close supermarket or convenience store nearby since we are not opting for meals in their restaurant for 3 days and 2 nights.
      - Also, the hotel page says that it is close (15min) to the beach but when I checked how to get to Noordwijk Aan Zee (assuming it is the beach referred by the hotel page), we still have to take the bus, then train then bus again. Is there a better way by public transport?

      2. Keukenhof Express Combi-Ticket

      We plan to buy combi-ticket but our questions are:
      - if we buy express bus ticket from schipol to keukenhof, can we get off at the hotel first and not in keukenhof and visit keukenhof the next day(see itinerary) or is the combi-ticket good for one day bus trip to keukenhof then return trip also at the same day?
      - i noticed that is is the same price whether you come from amsterdam or schipol(€23). If we buy ticket from schipol going to keukenhof, and plan to go to amsterdam after, is the ticket still valid on the bus from schipol to amsterdam?

      Our itinerary for 2 days would be:
      1st day - hotel check-in in the afternoon then go to the nearest beach
      2nd day - keukenhof whole day
      3rd day - hotel check-out, quick visit to amsterdam

      The itinerary is still not final, though. It depends on the info we would get.

      Thanks so much in advance :)

    • Good breakfast places/restaurants?

      by neelv Online Now Apr 8, 2009 at 9:27 AM

      Are there any relatively cheaper breakfast options in or around the Keukenhof? Any recommendations? Our hotel charges appx 20 euros per person for breakfast, which I think is really steep.

      we are driving up this weekend.

      Please help,
