Having stayed in 3 separate hotels in one city like Amsterdam has it’s advantages. Each window view has a new perspective of the city. Every step out of the hotel has a new corner to explore. Having the view of the canals is definitely a plus. Having the view of the city has it’s beauty.

At first impression, Renaissance Amsterdam is perfectly situated 10 minutes by foot to central station and is surrounded by historic buildings from the outside and modern contemporary from the inside. There is a Church, which is physically connected to the contemporary settings of the hotel making the backdrop and setting so beautiful!

The Rooms

When you chose the Renaissance, you already know what you are going to get. Clean, comfortable and basic rooms with no fuss and super comfortable beds. 6 different room category to chose from. I was booked in the guest room which was a decent size for a room in European standards. I was most of the day outside the room anyway!

Breakfast is continental and buffet style with delicious pastries. The hotel has 3 different restaurants, Italian, international and a bar with lounge. Cool vibes and chilled music, serving finger style food, MED dips and a large range of amazing cocktails. The Koepelcafé, a traditional Amsterdam bar located on the Spuistreet side of the hotel, offers a true local vibe and a place to relax and just hang out while enjoying the view of the city.

  • Back in the desert 🐫 and I think summer just kicked in 🤷🏼‍♀️
  • I woke up right here on my back way from Voss to Oslo. 350 metres above Oslo city and right in Nordmarka forest🌳
  • I could be staring at the same mountains that loomed over passing Vikings and I’m in love... Wouldn’t you be?
  • From Oslo, I took the NSB train to Myrdal which is a 5 hour journey, then boarded the Flåm Railway, named by @natgeotravel one of the most beautiful train journey in Europe taking you through west Norway’s most beautiful scenery. Here we stopped for 10 minutes to step out of the railway for pictures. Can you see Chloè by the window too? ☺️
  • The sun doesn’t rise till around 9am, so it gave me a lot of time to sleep in. Flåm is a small village in southwestern Norway, in an area known for its fjords. It sits at the end of Aurlandsfjord. It’s peaceful, its historical, it’s quiet and it’s not a place you will find all over social media. I found these little red cabins while walking around the small village trying not to slip on the ice that covers the road! I did though, I slipped, laughed got bruised and luckily my camera didn’t fall into the water... but it was so close!
  • I’ve found Kattegat ♥️
  • I was always in a hurry to be someone, always in a hurry to become something and do everything. I didn’t waste my time on things or people that would get me nowhere. I crave a slow life, a simple life filled with adventures. No fast cars or expensive homes and for almost all my life, I’ve built a life in which I never needed to escape from. This is my beautiful reality and this photo represents that to me.
  • I was thinking of a caption that can relate to what I was thinking... but the truth is, simple... I was thinking of absolutely nothing at all... just the fact that I was waking up in the middle of a frozen sea. ♥️
  • Gelato for breakfast and it’s melting!! An obvious one ofcourse 😊 That was my next hunt for ‘inspiration in finding a little bit of Italy in the UAE’  project with @theitalianwayuae How many times a day would you have Gelato in Italy? For me, it was around 4-5!! #TheItalianWay
