When we arrived to Twenty Eight, we were immediately in love with the decor and design. The space was classy yet modern and had such a bold, eclectic feel about it that still remained inviting. The staff greeted us excitedly and gave us the grand tour. Which was quite grand if I do say so myself.
When looking for hotels these are always the priorities: well priced, convenient location, and cute atmosphere (because that's the most important). Who wants to stay in a space that doesn't have the right aesthetic and feel? Not this girl. While doing my research, I stumbled across Hotel2Stay, a new hotel next to Sloterdijk train station -- which was perfect for me because I always take the train from Germany to that exact station.
Mother Goose Hotel located in Utrecht, the Netherlands is one of the dreamiest and coziest places I've stayed in to date. Upon arriving to this small, boutique hotel in the heart of Utrecht, I knew I was going to fall in love. This chic space feels like a super trendy B&B with modern amenities, lots of privacy, and such a unique flare.
Coming from the States, I am constantly impressed by the unique style and design in Dutch Hotels. Especially one like Star Lodge Hotel, who boast on their economic price point and cozy atmosphere. As a young, twenty something finding a space that is both budget friendly and trendy is always at the top of my list, but not so easy to find. Star Lodge Hotel in Utrecht had just that.
Whether you have the opportunity for a weekend layover in Amsterdam in between travels (I highly recommend flying into Schiphol from the USA -- super cheap flights via WowAir) or are there for just a few hours, there is so much to see and do.
