Admittedly, when you think of a weekend in Amsterdam, romance probably isn’t the first thing that comes to mind. But when I went to test the Dutch capital’s suitability for a romantic stay, I found that Amsterdam definitely has a romantic side. Think beautiful canals, romantic parks with endless lawns, great restaurants and pretty streets for strolling.
There was just one thing that wasn’t quite right during my short stay in Amsterdam, and that was the hotel. As my weekend trip was a spontaneous decision, my only option was a grey hotel with sad remnants of a soggy breakfast buffet and drunk people trying to break down the door at night. But what annoyed me the most were the separate and worn-out mattresses. That’s not what you need on a couple’s weekend away!
To make sure the same doesn’t happen to you, I’ve picked some wonderful hotels for you that will make your weekend for two in Amsterdam perfect.
