24 hours in Amsterdam

A quick visit to Amsterdam loaded with great experiences last weekend. A long overdue stay at Andaz Amsterdam: amazing interior design by Marcel Wanders, attentive staff, great Bluespoon Bar & Restaurant. Rather expensive at €252 for Canal View King room (upgraded from Andaz King as Hyatt Gold Passport Platinum member)

Friend of mine recommended &Samhoud Places for dinner on Saturday night. Booked it after quick look at food pics on Tripadvisor. Turned out to be a rather expensive choice. 🙂

Enjoyed 2 UberLUX (Mercedes-Benz S-Class & BMW 7 Series) and 4 UberBlack (Mercedes-Benz E-Class) rides in Amsterdam.  As usual, excellent Uber service by friendly drivers. Two cool venues I discovered during my 24 hour trip:
Door 74 (Speakeasy Cocktailbar, reservations required)
EYE Bar-Restaurant (part of EYE Film Institute)

  1. Hi Bart,

    What’s your strategy for maintaining hotel status? A blog post about that would be very nice. Hyatt Platinum for example is pretty easy the first year through status match and 12 nights, but for the years after that it’s pretty tough to keep it?

    • Hi Jules, thanks for your input. I might write a blog post about it. Some programs are easy to maintain status, others are quite challenging.
