I feel I wrote it so many times but I can’t start this post without writing it. So, you must have noticed I’ve been to Amsterdam unless you really don’t follow the blog, Instagram and YouTube, which is really a shame!
So I prepared for you a post listing some of Amsterdam highlights, as far as I’m concerned, and places you just can’t miss. I will certainly go back to them the next time I am in Amsterdam.
Café George – a small, lovely café serving Italian food and exquisite breakfasts! Besides, the place is designed in a Scandinavian style and full with marble tables, something that only Instagram addicts will understand.
The Duchess – one of the finest restaurants Amsterdam has to offer. The menu is entrusted with no other than Israeli beloved chef Haim Cohen. Besides the good food and impressive space where the restaurant is located – Amsterdam old post building – this place has great energies and it is simply fun sitting there! And just now they launched an especially pampering After Tea!
W Hotel roof – beyond the fact that this is a super hysterical, wonderfully designed hotel, it houses a lounge on its roof (and a meat restaurant – Mr. Porter) with a long, amazing pool and a balcony overlooking the entire center of Amsterdam. If in the winter the views are so magical and beautiful, I can only imagine how wonderful it would be in the other seasons of the year!
Nine Street District (de Negen Straatjes) near the canals is the fashionable, hot shopping compound in town. Young designers, Scandinavian brands, concept fun stores.
The nine streets are Huidenstraat, Wolvenstraat, Runstraat, Wijdeheisteeg, Reestraat, Berenstraat, Hartenstraat, Gathuise Molensteeg and Oude Spigelstraat. The compound also features many cool bars and pubs and good, well designed restaurants that are totally worth a photo!
Hotel Pulitzer – true, this hotel is not for everyone’s budget but Amsterdam itself is not the cheapest town anyway. It is designed and draws its chic from every direction, which I personally find difficult to resist. It is located in a relatively quiet area and has a private exit to the canal where you can also book a private cruise!
