The hotel made his best.... We had the room 507 facing garden. It was really different
I would like to thank the staff so kind and helpful.
The hotel is really beautiful and so central ( It was not my first time in Amsterdam )
Thank you Albus
You have completely
603, Room 1: two singles beds when I actually booked one king bed.
109, Room 2: Must be the worst most noisiest room in the whole hotel.
I can not believe how you have treated our booking which I'd informed you was for a special occasion. The booking was made well in advance, so please can you explain how you have got our stay so wrong?
I'm an disappoint
BUT - the wifi is the worst.
In summary, a fantastica

12 days of Christmas in Amsterdam
Amsterdammers'' love for the word 'gezellig' (meaning: similar to 'cosy' but used in a broader sense) is seen no more fittingly than over the holiday period, when the city's 'village' charm shines in fairy lights, snugs up in warm cafes and bars and brims with silly season spirit.
IAmsterdam made a list (and checked it twice) of the top twelve things to do (one for each day and in no particular order) in Amsterdam over the festive period....
Christmas markets in Amsterdam
Throughout the month of the December, the Netherlands overflows with Christmas cheer. Markets become more than a place to buy food and trinkets – they become a place to warm up with glühwein and oliebollen, find the perfect gifts for friends and family, and spend time with those you love.
AMSTERDAM LIGHT FESTIVAL

🎬 IDFA: International Documentary Film Festival Amsterdam
Each November, the International Documentary Film Festival Amsterdam (IDFA) transforms Amsterdam's city centre into a paradise for documentary film fans.
A world of cinematic discovery at IDFA....
IDFA is a renowned international film festival that treats documentary lovers to the latest and greatest domestic and international arrivals from the documentary film world. No other festival brings together so many great films, devoted fans and talented film-makers in one place, making IDFA one of the world's leading documentary film festivals. The films presented at IDFA all tell extraordinary stories about life – often revealing and moving, they can also be shocking or funny.
A global perspective
With hundreds of international documentaries on offer, IDFA's programming provides a look at the world from a variety of unique perspectives. Taking viewers to some of the world's poorest and wealthiest places, the documentaries featured are often as poetic as they are powerful. While Amsterdam's cinemas play a central role in the festival's programming, you'll find a wide variety of special events, lectures, discussions and workshops taking place at venues all over the city.
The complete programme can be found on the IDFA website. A large proportion of the film screenings are in English or with English subtitles.
