Amsterdam, the “Venice of the North”, is famous the world over for its 165 canals, 600,000 bicycles, 1,281 bridges – and of course its liberal spirit. The city’s distinct cultural mix attracts nearly 4 million visitors a year and, in order to host them all, this capital disguised as a village offers a diverse range of accommodation.
Looking for a good hotel in Paris? It shouldn’t be too hard to find one, given the number of rooms (around 81,000 in 2012) and the diversity of styles on offer.
As one of the world’s most visited cities, the choice ranges from chain groups to highly individual addresses. In keeping with its reputation as a refined, elegant and extravagant city, the accommodation offer includes a high number of luxury establishments and hip design hotels, but those on a lower budget and business travellers who require a convenient place to stay are also well provided for.
Spain’s capital has also got a lot going for it in the way of culture. The centre is home to its fair share of architectural delights, and no trip would be complete without admiring the Plaza Major, the Puerta de Alcala, the Paseo del Prado and the Palacio Real. City of movida, Madrid’s inhabitants definitely know how to party, meaning there is about as much to do by night as by day.
