Amsterdam Luxury Break

An Amsterdam city break is just the holiday ticket for all ages and all tastes. Whether it’s cultural high from its world class museums or another sort of high from the city’s notorious ‘coffee shops’, Amsterdam is a city you can’t help but enjoy. Amsterdam is one of Europe’s top city break holiday destinations thanks to a unique mix of high art and low life, from cultural capital to cannabis capital it has so much going for it, it’s hard to know where to start.

The most difficult nights of the week for hotels to fill their rooms are Saturday and Sunday night. Combine this with the fact that car rental companies struggle to sell their fleet on a weekend too, and you could be on to a winner.

The best hotels to get great deals on weekend nights are business class hotels as they’re more likely to be empty at the weekend (as all their marketing efforts go on business customers) and they’re also generally very nice places to stay.

First is the ease of getting there. Schiphol Airport had been voted one of the finest in Europe and its high speed trains will whisk you the 14 km into the city centre every 15 minutes. Then there is the ease of getting around. Amsterdam has excellent tram and bus services, not to mention the canal cruises that take in all the cultural holiday hotspots as well as the beautiful byways. Above all Amsterdam city centre is physically small and relatively quiet, with many streets-traffic free and bicycles the transport of choice for most Amsterdammers.

If you’re planning a Amsterdam luxury Break, there are a lot of places you shouldn’t miss. The largest park of the city, Vondelpark, close to the Leidseplein and the big museums, is always alive with skaters, joggers and all sorts of street performers. During your city break you must visit Amsterdam’s most famous day market, with stalls lining both sides of the Albert Cuyp Street. The canals of course are one of the major attractions of the ‘Venice of the North’. By daytime already very charming, by night they become even more enchanting because a lot of the canal houses and bridges are beautifully illuminated. The flower market on the Singel between the Munt tower and the Koningsplein is one of the most colorful, sweet-smelling sightseeing attractions in Amsterdam.

No luxury break will be satisfying without some good meals to get you through the day. If you fancy yourself as a gourmand, you’d do well to plan your tailor made holidays to include a visit to the Mandarin Oriental in Hong Kong. The restaurants and bars have won 3 Michelin stars.

If you are traveling in high season, don’t expect to pay low season prices on luxury vacations. The prices you will find might be the highest you have ever seen because you had previously considered traveling during low season. Be ready to pay up to $1,500 per person for international air in coach class. Expect three star resorts and hotels in tourist areas to charge five star prices, and luxury hotels and resorts to go through the roof. One good suggestion is to book early to try to take advantage of early booking discounts.
