Last month I took Josh to Amsterdam for his Christmas Present. I am extremely fussy with hotels and I will research for days until I find the right one so booking this trip was a bit of a chore. Obviously I wanted to find one which was really nice, had good reviews and wasn't going to cost a fortune. After hours of scanning Booking.com and Trip Advisor I finally came across Hotel Estherea. It was number 15 on Trip Advisor's list of best hotels in Amsterdam, the photo's looked lovely and it wasn't too expensive. I had found our hotel!

Drinks in Amsterdam were quite expensive (Around 10 euros a drink) and in the hotel bar they were about half this price so we decided to drink in there for a few nights. I love how the bar has a nice homely feeling and the blossom tree was so cute, I want one for my bedroom. We came in at about 1am on one day and as it was during the week the barman had gone home. But don't worry the bar wasn't shut, the gentleman at reception poured us some drinks. We sat chatting to him for ages and was such a lovely bloke.
My only let down about this hotel was the breakfast. As it was 18 euros per person per day we wasn't going to have breakfast at all. But on the last day decided to try it out. What a mistake that was. I know that most hotels in Europe cater mostly for continental breakfasts but this was mostly all it was. They did have eggs, bacon and sausages but they weren't great at all. All the rest was just ham and cheeses, fruit, salads and breads. I know they most of the people staying enjoyed that which is great but I think they do need to cater a little bit more for English people.
