Amsterdam is without a doubt one of the most visited cities in Europe. It’s known for it’s more relaxed approach to lifestyle and as a result has earned itself a reputation as being one of the most fun and exciting cities that Europe has to offer.
You will be staying in the 4* Hotel Estherea, which has received a TripAdvisor rating of 4.5/5 as well as winning Travellers’ Choice Awards for “Romance” and “Top Hotels”. Whilst you are staying here you will receive some really nice extras. You will be provided with breakfast, as well as 2 complimentary cocktails. There is also free tea, coffee and hot chocolate available throughout the day (always a nice extra during the colder Winter months). There are also free biscuits from noon, so you can enjoy a few snacks during your stay.
This hotel is ideally located for exploring the city. You are really close to one of the most famous shopping districts in Amsterdam; “De Negen Straatjes”. This is a really trendy area and is definitely the place for you to go if you’re looking for a quirky, yet sophisticated souvenir or three. There are also some really cool cafes and restaurants in the area, so that could be somewhere you could head to when looking for somewhere to eat dinner.
Guru Tip:Whilst you’re here you may be tempted to try riding a bike, as the locals do. All I can say on the matter is “don’t”. As appealing as this may be, the speed and standard at which they ride their bikes in Amsterdam is absolutely terrifying; they are basically like cars, just closer to you. So I would recommend walking as your main mode of transport for this trip.
You could also visit some of the various museums that Amsterdam has to offer you; from Anne Frank’s House to the Rijksmuseum or even the Van Gogh Museum. It is definitely worthwhile you paying a visit to at least one of these, it’s always nice to have a cultural element to a trip.

You will notice that your flights are not included in this deal. The flights I have found on easyjet.com only cost £74 per person, which isn’t particularly expensive! These are using the dates 07/02/2015 – 08/02/2015 and leaving from London Gatwick. The dates are flexible, but prices to vary.
This is the perfect excuse for you to get away for a quick weekend and just enjoy some time exploring a new city, trying new things and just having a really nice time being away from home for a night of style.
