Next week, Amsterdam will have its third festival of lights, where artists magnify the city with light sculptures, projections and installations. All major museums and institutions also organise light-related activities. It couldn’t be a better time for me to launch the Amsterdam week that I had planned for some time.
I worked in Amsterdam for several months a few years ago and can vouch for the inhabitant’s welcome and also for the great sense of design everywhere. Petite Passport is a great blog to get recommendations on design restaurants and hotels as well.
So this week, I’ll give you
- a review of a business hotel with a boutiquey touch
- a selection of pretty hotels to stay at, all with a sense of style
- a few lovely rentals so that you can feel at home while touring the city.
Mercure Amsterdam Arthur Frommer – a central fit for purpose business hotel
Today we start with a review of this hotel, which I stayed at numerous times during my business assignment. It had been redecorated the year before and so was really appealing. Plus the location was a short walk from my work, which was right in the center of the city, so you may find that useful too.
- 93 bedrooms
- From 159 Euros
What I liked (Oh Oui !)
What could be improved (zut alors !)
