Hey.......I gotta think fast,.....the Kap hotel has just
offered me what they have left; a single with the shower outside
the room....does this mean the toilet is too?,.....I love the
price and I'm getting tired of searching,....I've heard some
good things about the Kap and I don't mind going the economy
road as long as I don't stand up from the bed and smack right
into the wall,.or have to listen to the guy in the next room
breathing because the walls are paper-thin,..anybody out there
have a good word about the Kap?,...I have to act fast. Thanks.
I've stayed at the Kap 2 different times in a total of 4 different rooms. The earliest in March '00 the shower and toilet was shared, the 2nd time both rooms had their own shower in the room but the toilet was in the hall and shared. I'd guess your room has both outside the room. The Kap only has 3 or 4 rooms per floor so it's almost like your own private shower as most rooms have a shower in their rooms although toilets are shared more often.The single rooms are very small, my #15 (it's the single shown on the web page) measured 8'X15' more or less. What I like about the Kap are how quiet it is 24 hours a day. I slept like a baby there and I'm a real light sleeper. For a 2 star the breakfast bufett is killer. The staff is very friendly and helpful. There's very frequent (20 per hour to CS during the day) tram service 2 blocks away, it's 13 minutes to Dam Square. It seems to me the guests were mostly Europeans in the 25 to 50 year old range. Besides breakfast I hardly knew anybody else was staying there especially Sunday through Thursday, weekends were booked solid. It's cannabis friendly as long as you don't bother the other guests. There's efficient steam radiator heat. There's a mini park that's good for toking between the Kap and the tram stop. The only thing that bothers me somewhat the first few days are the 50 very steep narrow steps to the 3rd floor in the main building although after 3 days or so you'll hardly even notice them. I'd say go for it, it's great value for the money. If you're going to be there for 3 days or more a public transportation day pass (dagticket) gives you access to all bus, nightbus, tram and metro rides to anywhere in AMS for no additional charge. 23 NLG for 4 days and 4 NLG for each additional day.
