In the month of August, about two weeks before we left the UK back to KL, we planned a trip to Amsterdam, the capital of Netherlands, since neither of us visited Amsterdam before, and the city seemed to be attractive to us.
Choosing accommodation might not be the easiest task. Again, we relied on TripAdvisor and this time we found The Bridge Hotel, a privately owned three stars hotel located on the Amstel River, next to the Skinny Bridge.
The hotel wasn’t hard to locate. We followed the route description on the hotel website and soon arrived at Waterlooplein by using the tram. From the tram stop, we took approximately 10 minutes to walk towards the skinny bridge (Magere Brug), which was pictured above.
The owner-managed hotel was rather small, but check-in was fast and efficient. Our room was clean and spacious, although not glamorous, it was equipped with everything essential, and free Wi-Fi was provided for throughout our stay.
The selection of food was rather similar to continental breakfast served in other hotels, but we preferred Bridge Hotel’s because of the quality of their food served. We loved their bread, ham, cured meat, cheese and muesli!
Due to our early flight at about 7am, we requested breakfast to be served at 4am and it was very kind of the hotel staff to prepare a simple breakfast for us. We were served with a selection of bread, cheese and ham.
We loved our stay at the Bridge Hotel, the room was reasonably priced and the staff were very helpful and friendly. Do note that the hotel does not have elevators and mature clients might want to request for ground floor rooms. Rooms with canal view can be requested prior your stay. Stay tuned for more upcoming posts on Amsterdam!
