Used the BFT link.  

After several years of no bidding activity, we wanted to lock in a 5* hotel for a weekend in Amsterdam, and didn't want to go the last minute option.  Our desired zones were 6, 11, and 15, which are the city centre and inner canals.  Initially shut out at $114, and failed on rebids at $126 and $139 using 5* null zones 10 and 17 (Ijmuiden and Zaandam).  We were about to give up when we decided to try one more, using 5* null zone Hilversum and bidding $151.  That did it and put us in the city centre.

This is no fantastic discount since Expedia was showing a $189 rate, though the hotel's own website rate was much higher ($231).  Still, it is right where we want to be and a good deal.


There are not a lot of postings regarding Amsterdam hotel bidding, so please be kind and post your experiences if this is helpful.

Be sure to check Express Deals before you bid, and check again from the rejection page if your bid is not accepted. The Express Deal for this hotel was $150.

Thanks for the feedback. I did check the Express Deal before bidding, and the cheapest offering was $189. I figured that it was the same hotel since it matched the Expedia rate. However, I did not check the Express Deal from the reject page.

You guys run a great site -- keep it up!
