We booked a hotel near the airport of Amsterdam; Park Plaza hotel. It was a very good hotel! Although it was close to the airport, we didn’t hear a thing of the planes! The room was cosy and just big enough for 2. The bar was also more than okay 🙂 . The hotel wasn’t close to the city, but that wasn’t a problem. We took the car and we drove 3 minutes. There was a tram to central station and so we came easily in the city.
The city is very pretty! It’s nice with all the water & those typical houses of Amsterdam. For me, it was a little bit like paradise; SO MANY SHOPS! You can find many brands that you can’t find here in Belgium (like NYX, Sabon,.. ).
