Need a hotel room in the Netherlands? By far the best way to find one is using an agency that has access to a huge range of accommodation. Not only can this save you time but it can also save you money. I used this service myself before setting up this affiliation and found it excellent.
This is how it works: Click here to start, select location, hotel grade and the dates of your stay. The service will then list all available accommodation. You can view pictures of the hotels, maps of their locations and so on. Then, if you find something you like, you can reserve it. Best of all, you don't even pay until you get there!

The Best Coffeeshops
In the Netherlands the term coffeeshop has come to mean a place where hashish and marijuana are available. The ACD is your comprehensive guide to cannabis cafes and drugs in Amsterdam and the Netherlands. It lists shops selling weed, psychedelics, growing kit and everything hemp and will help you find out where the best buds are and some cool places to smoke them. Above all, the ACD is about unashamed cannabis tourism. It's for planning a coffee shop crawl around Amsterdam.

The Amsterdam Coffeeshop Directory was first established on the 3rd July 1998 on the Pipex network and moved here to FreeUK on 20/09/00. It's now located at www.coffeeshop.freeuk.com but can also be accessed via www.coffeeshopdirect.com. If for any reason the site has to move in the future, the coffeeshopdirect.com address will always link to it.
Over 18 Dutch coffee shops are licenced to sell small quantities of cannabis to adults over 18. If you don't want to read about soft drugs then please click your browser's back button.
