3N in Amsterdam.....Suggestions sought


We (Me, wife, 2 kids - 11 year & 6 year old) are planning Mumbai-Amsterdam-Germany-Italy tour in early May.

We would be arriving at Amsterdam around 12 noon and will be staying there for 3 Nights / 2.5 days. Request your help in following:

- Suggestions on a good Hotel (Accor group, preferably) which should be nearer to City Centre, Railway station (traveling to Frankfurt later) & main attractions.

- Places to visit in Amsterdam. Nothing specific. We're not that fond of museums etc but Castles, main Attractions etc are to be visited.

- Local transport in Amsterdam....Trains, buses, trams etc,....Suggestions for any local pass for 3 days ???

Thanks in advance ....

Hotels: The Convent, Ibis Styles Amsterdam Station and Ibis Amsterdam Centre, all in the centre and close to Central Station. If you are looking for Accor Hotels only then I would pick the Convent.

Public Transport: Take a look at the TQ : tripadvisor.com/Travel-g188590-s303/Amsterda…

For things to do TQ as well: tripadvisor.com/Travel-g188590-s409/Amsterda…

Thank you all,

Have researched and gone thro' TA guide 3 days in Amsterdam. Jotted down places. It's just a running list of which I'll have to eliminate a few to fit into my 3N/ 2.5 days schedule in Amsterdam:

Keukenhof Garden / Farmers' Fields

Madurodam - Miniature of Holland, Hague


The above 3 can be scheduled on Day-2 as a Day tour from Amsterdam

The following is the running list for Day-1 (half day....arriving around 12 noon) & Day-3 (full day)....few to be removed.....pls suggest if anything beautiful I've missed

Canal Cruise

Canals for Photography - Prinsengracht, Emperor's Canal (Keizersgracht), Herengracht Canal

Magere Brug - Bridge

Red Light District


Anne Frank House and the Westerkerk bell tower

Van Goth Museum

The Jordaan


Dam Square

Leiden Square

I think that out of Rijksmuseum, Ann Frank house, Van Goth Museum, we may need to remove one and decide on 1 or 2. Which ones?

Need suggestions/ help on how do we sequence it according to routes on Day-1 (post noon....half day) & Day-3 (full day)

See the link I provided earlier for 3 days in Amsterdam.

I think you should pin all those places in Google maps and see which are close together.

Leidseplein (Leiden Square) is not a sight per se. Just a square with lots of bars, but you will find bars all over town anyway.

The same goes for Rembrandtplein (square).

No need for you to visit the 'Van Goth' museum if you don't even know who Van Gogh is and what he did.

Try not to plan too much.
