    Must visit in Europe

    This city has a very different vibe. Though I felt Dutch are bit aggressive, this city is pretty chilled out. Narrow streets, winding canals, coffee shops, old buildings with beautiful architecture. and Bikes. Walking is the best way to explore this city. Go for a walk after dark and those canals are nicely lit which looks very beautiful

    A non usual symbol of Europe

    I spent 8 days in Amsterdam. The city is full of life and full of people - bikes, trams, cars, everything. It can be all a little too much, specially if you're high. But the city has the drugs side and also has the "common" side. It was one of the most beautiful cities we've been through, it has nice and crooked buildings, full of color, it has flowers, the supermarket (Albert Heinj) is perfect.

    Insider Tip:It can be a little too cold at the winter.

    The location in the very near Anne Frank House. One can have a meal in the cafe floor, and breakfast is also not bad. Overall, the atmosphere was not bad. I yelled just stay in the 8 room, the room was a small piece. And I do not know what it was like the other rooms are, in my room was uncomfortable because only one outlet in the room entrance.

    Great weekend

    You hear about Amsterdam and all the going-ons your whole life, you develop an idea of what it would be like and my idea was not the cleanest or greatest. I love being wrong. The place is gorgeous and a really fun place to be for a short break!!
