Before I start writing about my favorite lunch and coffee places in Amsterdam, I have to say that this is gonna be a bit long post since I have spent 3 days in Amsterdam visiting really yummy hotspots and I want to share all of them with you.
First of all, I want to highlight that Amsterdam in July is absolutely amazing (in general it is always beautiful, but the sunny weather shows the best of the city). I went to walk around the canals and enjoy the views during the 3 days and it was a great experience! So, if you have a chance to visit Amsterdam during summer, don't think two times, just do it!
It is definitely the city of freedom and one of my favourite places I have visited so far.
Many people consider Amsterdam as the city of canals, tulips, coffeeshops and Red Light district, but the truth is that this city is much more than this: It offers a wide variety of museums, being the most important ones Rijksmuseum and Van Gogh Museum, and also countless art galleries. The architecture of the city is absolutely fascinating, mixing the beautiful small houses with 165 canals and 1.500 bridges.
Today it's raining in Paris, and I'm at home thinking of another rainy city I visited after New Year. It's a beautiful place with lot's of canals, art museums and it's famous for being tolerant (in different aspects) with turists. Yes, I'm talking about Amsterdam!
Today I'm gonna show you a very special hotel where we stayed in Amsterdam, and I liked it so much that I decided to share my experience with you. CitizenM Amsterdam is a completely new hotel located in Amsterdam Zuid just 15 minutes from the city center. It's very comfortable to catch the tram as the station is just in front of the hotel and it takes you directly to all interesting places in Amsterdam.
