Going to stay in your own Amsterdam as a tourist?
You can, with the Amsterdamse Hotelnacht or Amsterdam Hotel Night 2014 event on the weekend of Saturday to Sunday 18 to 19 January.
It’s mid-winter and cold, so some 40 top hotels in Amsterdam are opening their doors to local residents to sample their luxurious hospitality and stay at a discount room rate for the weekend.
Many of the hotels are also turning the occasion into cultural and culinary treats, offering special dinners and even parties on the rooftop. You can sip cocktails then rug up to go to the biological night market for organic food and fruits.
Or just stroll along the canals in your wintry city, or enjoy its night life late into the night, knowing that you will not have to travel far to go “home”.
Here is your chance to enjoy some of the holiday spirit that normally visitors to our sometime festive city do. You may not have much sleep but the luxurious beds will be very comfortable and cosy when you have time to sleep in them.
Visit http://www.amsterdamsehotelnacht.nl where you can book accommodation tickets from €55, to let yourself be a tourist in your own city.
