Amsterdam

Just like other cities, Amsterdam is famous for it’s cozy and picturesque architecture. What makes Amsterdam extra beautiful and sets itself apart from the rest, of course, are the boats and canals!

Cruise the canals of Amsterdam

Discover the beauty of Holland in Amsterdam

Many years ago, Holland was the king of the sea. This country conquered many countries and formed colonies. This resulted in an era full of gold and arts, but also a darker history. You can learn all about it in the many museums Amsterdam has to offer. It’s perfect when rain is falling and when it’s not, take a cruise on the canals, sniff on tulips and eat all of the Gouda cheese.

Making wonderful memories in Amsterdam

Amsterdam is rich with hotels. With 237 hotels within the Hotel Gift Portfolio, you’re sure to find a nice hotel in the area you like. Whether you want to have a nice view of the canals or don’t want to be far from the chicest shopping street of Amsterdam, a Hotel Gift has it covered. Alternatives are hotels near the bustling cafe and bars area, or near the oldest, cozy neighborhoods like the Jordaan.
