Amsterdam Hotel Van de Kasteelen

We are planning to stay 3 nights in the beginning of July in Hotel Van de Kasteelen in Amsterdam. It seems to have very good reviews on Tripadvisor. But:
Is it good enough for the price of 123 euros for a double room with breakfast?
It does not seem to have a/c. How important is it in July in Amsterdam?
Thanks in advance for advice.

Very hard to say something about air conditioning; you wouldn't have needed it in July 2004, but would definitely have wanted it in July 2003. It's impossible to predict.
I don't know that hotel, so can't help you there.

We were in Amsterdam a few summers ago, in July, during the European heat wave (though not the worst of it). We stayed at the Pulitzer, which had A/C but also had windows that would open. I think it would have been borderline at the periphery of a heat wave; but I suspect it's fine most of the time during the summer (with the caveat that an open window means more street noise).

I also have not been to the hotel, so I can't say (I did notice that they were well liked on Trip Advisor, but the per diem was higher). We are going in a a few weeks and staying at the Hotel Estherea, which we have never stayed at but is in a wonderful location.

Haven't personally experienced this, but have read that mosquitos can be a problem in the summer - so if you have to leave the window open...

We are planning a trip to Amsterdam in late July & I have the same question re A/C. I doesn't seem that many of the hotels do have A/C. Are there areas close to town that would be cooler to stay in? (temperature, that is)

It was rainy, chilly, then muggy when I went to Amsterdam in 2003. I stayed at Hotel Nadia on Rodntsrak (??) Road. ..just remember Hotel Nadia, it is not far from the train and the red light district.

To mst2000:
Please let us know how is
Hotel Estherea (after you'll get back from Amsterdam). It also has very good reviews on tripadvisor. I saw it on Expedia. Do you know if they include breakfast into the rate? Nothing is mentioned about it, so I guess not. Did you get a rate with breakfast included? Regards.
