3.0 out of 5 stars Frommer's Guide To Amsterdam: Lots of information, but awkwardly organised., 1 Jun. 2012
By 
This review is from: Frommer's Amsterdam Day by Day (Frommer′s Day by Day - Pocket) (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
We recently took this on a four day trip to Amsterdam, and while it proved useful at times due to the amount of information contained, we regularly found ourselves referring to the Everyman guide instead, as that book is much better organised and the information easier to access.

The guide is, to its credit, compact, easy to carry and hard wearing. The removable map is a nice touch, even though it doesn't cover the area around the NDSM wharf, where our hotel was. The information covers a wide range of topics and is reasonably detailed. The down side is the way it is structured. Rather than dealing with the city area by area, or breaking it down into sections such as museums or theatres, it tries to outline suggested things to do for the one or two day visitor. It makes the desired information very hard to find, and eventually we gave up on it, only using it for the handy phrase guide in the back.

We didn't think much of it, but it did have some useful features (phrasebook) that we used quite a bit, so three stars.
