Getting aroung during Christmas Week

Hello! me and 3 others will be in Amsterdam from 29-31 December 2015. It will be my first time there. What is the best option for getting around. I do not see any metros inside the inner canal. My hotel is the Quentin Arrive(ghetto lol). It looks to be fairly close to majority of the landmarks I wish to visit. Im afraid of renting a bike due to the cold temperature during winter. Is it recommended to rent a bike regardless of weather?

I also would like to know if I need to worry about any closures during the days I am there. Anne Frank is a must. Other museums we dont really care much for. We just wanna try out the food(Poffertjes, Bitterballen, Stroopwafels, Oliebollen are a few I would love to try any recommendations would help)

Last but not least, what is the best and efficient way to get from my hotel to AMS airport there and back? Thank you!

Your hotel is located at the edge of the city center. That said, you can walk to the other side of the center in 30 - 40 minutes so it is not a problem. As Amsterdam will be busy at that time, go online ASAP and book tickets for the AFH. Less than a 10 minute walk from your hotel.

To just hang out, simply walk outside your door. Your hotel is on one of the best streets anywhere. Weather will not be your problem with renting a bike. Wait until you get there before making up your mind.

Walk to the Central Station and take the train to Schiphol.
