Cityguide Amsterdam

“Amsterdam, what is not to love. The atmosphere is nowhere as relaxed as in the capital of Holland. Everybody is biking around. People are always out to coffee, lunch or dinner outside. Vondelpark and Westerpark for the sunny days. And everybody is young and fashionable. The city is packed with conceptstores, trendy supermarkets, such as Stach and Marqt, and burgerplaces. The best areas are the 9 straatjes, Jordaan and De Pijp. My all time favourite city!” Yours Truly

city highlights


Lotti’s is the restaurant of The Hoxton hotel. The atmosphere is really cosy and the interior is amazing. I love to go here to order a coffee, plug in my laptop and work till lunchtime.

Herengracht 255

san george

Dinner at San George, a downtown Italian located close by Leidsesquare. Most of Amsterdammers know the area very well for its nightlife and passed the restaurant while riding around. What they might have missed is a chic Italian bistro.

Stadhouderskade 7

libertine cafe cafe

 I felt in love with the poppy flowers on the tables. The open kitchen (island) looks amazing with the huge oven and people in denim walking around it. The crew is friendly, service minded which you don’t see often in Amsterdam, and has a great sense of humor.

Wolvenstraat 22

bar fisk

At the corner between Albert Cuypmarkt and Sarphati Park, you can now find Bar Fisk. As suggested by the name (the Scandinavian word for fish), the main ingredients come straight from the ocean. But Bar Fisk is much more than what you would expect.

Eerste Sweelinckstraat 23

het warenhuis

The interior of Het Warenhuis is cosy, modern with really nice items such as the black leather stools and table we were eating from. You can shop every single item in their online store!

Haarlemmerstraat 65


They went from healthy cafeteria to casual dining concept. Pure and organic ingredients, moderate in fat, free of refined sugars and, where possible, gluten and carbohydrates free, vegetarian or vegan.

What should I order?
The Hummus Superbowl with whole wheat pita and chicken.

Kinkerstraat 106-108

the hoxton

The Hoxton hotel is a great location to get inspired. I love the vibe of working freelancers in the lobby and the rooms are beautifully designed.
