Lonely Planet the Netherlands (Lonely Planet Travel Guides)

I bought this book because my Dutch girlfriend was interested to see what the LP covered in her native land.
I've been using this guide for a few months to give me an idea of what cities and places in the Netherlands I would want to visit. It's a good resource for planning my sight-seeing, but after that I prefer to use HostelWorld.com and the local VVV offices for lodging and maps. The VVV maps are usually more detailed than the LP maps anyway

We were disappointed with this book. The maps were almost unreadable. Information attached to them was confusing. Street addresses were sometimes wrong. The written tone was unhelpful and unappealing. No more Lonely Planet for us.

Most Lonely Planet Guides that I have used in the past had an excellent selection of accommodations and restaurants for a range of budgets. "The Netherlands" LP guide falls far short of expectation in these areas. Their selections are unremarkable and seem to be poorly researched.

Another area of disappointment is the print quality of the city map sections. The monochrome renditions are extremely hard to read and find landmarks on and are thus of little practicle value to the average tourist.

My wife was born in Amsterdam. We visit the Netherlands every year. Always good to have another prospective. Found things in the book that we've passed many times and now we'll have to stop and check them out. Great guide.

I traveled all over the world for two years, using mostly Lonely Planet books. That was about 11 years ago. Back then I found Lonely Planet books to be very well written - especially the ones for Asia. This was my second time in the Netherlands, and this book missed a lot -- hardly any mention of Zeeland (beach country in the South); disappointing coverage of small towns. I can't comment on the Amsterdam coverage because we skipped that town.

I do not know why some people rave about LP guides, I find them plain and superficial, and this one takes the cake, it has a very narrow focus and ignores some beautifull areas of the country of my birth, I am glad I did not buy it.
Money is better spent on Michelin, Rick Steves or Eyewitness guides.

I bought this book for a 6-month trip to the Netherlands. The guide is fine for general ideas on stuff to do (but you could just get that off the internet.) The problem with this book is that time and time again, we have found the info to be just plain wrong. For example, we went to Arnhem to visit the Hartenstein War Museum. The book said to take trolley bus #1. We got on the bus, and just to be sure, I asked the driver who said that #1 took you in the wrong direction and to take #86 instead! We would have ended up in god knows where. When you're in a foreign city, details like this can be crucial. Wondering if this is a mistake that's been there all along or perhaps it used to be correct, but the staff at Lonely Planet just decided to republish old information. You'll see that a lot of the info is old and outdated (like the hotel recommendations) or just plain wrong.

i definitely found this product helpful and informative. ive been to amsterdam several times, but this helped with some of the outer lying areas i wanted to see a lot. also helped me find some good, off-the-beaten-path places in Amsterdam.
wish a Netherlands-Belgium guide had exisited though. that would have made this book indispensable.
