Those are the lines I first heard from the General Manager who’s alone in the Reception area when I arrive at Hotel JL No. 76. I thought I made a wrong door entry in a restaurant. No, I was perfectly at the right place to spend my first night in Amsterdam. First impressions last as they said and Hotel JL could be the best hotel to make your first Amsterdam’s impressions. Lively, welcoming and international – those were the three major words I can easily portray to Hotel JL No. 76.

Going around Amsterdam: Purchase an OV Chip Card (reloadable transportation card) if staying for more than week in Amsterdam and in the other cities of The Netherlands.
Another transportation options in Amsterdam without buying the OV chip card are the one hour-ticket (2.90 EUR), 24 hours (7.50 EUR), and 48 hours (12.50 EUR). Check the GVB website for updated prices and more offerings.
Buying tickets in the machines in the stations every time is only advisable if you have lots of coins. Nevertheless, fall in a line in the ticket booth.
