WestCord Art Hotel 3, Amsterdam

When deciding on the best hotel for one of our travel adventures, B and I always have several criteria in mind, which we try to meet as best possible. These include reasonable rates, comfortable rooms with attached bath, strategic location for ease of getting around and the convenience of basic amenities in the vicinity. Any other perks like FREE Wi-Fi, coffee/tea making facilities, a huge bathtub with designer toiletries and the likes are of course additional bonus, which simply adds to our overall hotel stay experience.

During our Europe trip back in October, B and I stayed in three different hotels; one in Monte-Carlo and two in Amsterdam. All three hotels had their good points but I have to say that out of the three, my favourite hotel was definitely our last stop, the super cool 4-star WestCord Art hotel in Amsterdam! Smiley

Last year when we were vacationing in Amsterdam, B and I chose to stay in WestCord Art hotel too, which comprises a 3-star hotel and a 4-star hotel located side by side. Our first stay saw us booked into the 3-star hotel but this year, we decided to check out the 4-star hotel instead. That way, we’d be able to experience two different stays in both hotels and make a which-hotel-is-better comparison! ihikhik

Before blogging about our stay in the beautiful 4-star WestCord Art hotel this year, I’ll be sharing photos of our comfy 3-star WestCord Hotel room from our 2012 Amsterdam Adventure first. This way, you too can view my photos and make your own comparison on which WestCord Art hotel room takes your fancy later.
