Amsterdam is always a good idea they say, and this couldn’t be more true! There’s something about this city which makes me fall in love every time I pay a visit, which is several times a year.
So the boy’s birthday a few weeks ago was the perfect excuse for another trip. We took the Thalys and one hour later we arrived at Amsterdam Central station. Our home for the weekend was the Pillows Anna van den Vondel
hotel which is close to, as the name mentions, the famous Vondelpark. I’ve stayed in this amazing hotel right after the opening, beginning of 2017, together with Nathalie, but I was so happy to be here again with the boyfriend.
And entering the hotel felt like coming home! The building is warm and friendly, just as the staff. We were welcomed with a delicious cappuccino while the host talked us through the amenities of the hotel and neighbourhood.
The rooms in the hotel are pure interior goals! Lots of white, gold, marble and sky blue velvet, just how I like it. The large windows have a view on the typical Amsterdam houses, so cosy!
After the best night of sleep ever after a full day of wandering around in Amsterdam, it was time for breakfast. And breakfast isn’t just served in the restaurant, but in the ‘living’, a super cosy space where you can watch the chefs in action, with a view on the hotel’s city garden.
And now, let’s talk breakfast shall we! I dare to say that this is the best hotel breakfast I ever had. Not quite sure where to start when the huge breakie ‘tower’ arrived, including freshly baked pastries, yoghurt and homemade granola and freshly cut fruits. Yum! And how cute was the bday surprise for the boyfriend?
