The Orangery

Swans swim by in the canal while you are in the room surrounded by floral wallpaper, fresh flowers and net curtains fluttering softly in the wind. Housed in a 15th century monastery, this small hotel is now world famous as the romantic place in almost overly romantic Bruges. American tourists love the Heritage Rooms, but we prefer to recommend a room with a view of the water.

Hotel 717

Many hotels wrongly use the slogan 'home away from home', but at 717 this is entirely justified, at least if you live in an antique city palace. 717 has a closed door and just a shiny polished brass sign next to the bell with the name on it. Suites have illustrious artist names such as Dickens, Mahler and Shakespeare. Our favorite is Picasso, with five windows on the canal. The hotel has an intimate and quiet city garden where you can have a nice drink or breakfast. This garden is a true oasis in the middle of the busy center of Amsterdam.

Sofitel Legend the Grand Amsterdam

William of Orange stayed there, Beatrix got married there, but that in itself is not surprising, since it was once the town hall and the admiralty of Amsterdam. The history can be read from the different styles of the building. The rooms with beautiful wall and ceiling paintings and the unique stained glass windows make it a national monument. Recently completely renovated, it meets all modern comfort requirements of the demanding person. Restaurant Bridges (*) is also located in the same building.
