First of all, I would never feel the real historical, romantic atmosphere of Amsterdam if I stayed anywhere else. When we joined the canal boat tour and we were told about the history of Amsterdam and those historical canal houses we were sure that it would have been a regret if I did not choose Seven Bridges. Because you are in fact in the heart of those intersecting seven bridges which gives the city it's soul.To live and breath the atmosphere of such a history and romance is a bonus in such a beautiful canal house and its a privilege if you look over the canal view and if you stay at canal room 6 like we did. Amsterdam is a city full of museums in which you can experience both art and fun with a wide range of kinds. Are you an art lover would you like to see the paintings of Rembrandt and Vermeer you must visit Rijskmuseum or Van Gogh museum which are partly open but will be opened 100% from 2013 on. Would you like to have fun then you can take the chance to experience the beer producing while being the bottle yourself in Heineken experience or you can learn about the dark side of the Amsterdam torture history with Dungeons(so funny). Sex museum and hush museums are also worth visiting. Red light area always gives opportunities of seeing a different world other than yours so don't miss that opportunity! Anne Frank house, Tuschinsky Theatre, Madamme Tussauds,The Old churh and New Churh,Volendam, Open Floating Flower Market, Vondelpark, are other things to see in Amsterdam.
When you return to your hotel after a loaded itinerary and listen to classical music in a room full of antiques and fresh flowers besides the canal your soul will be purified from all the negatives in your life. The hotel manager Gunter is a real Turkey and Istanbul lover who stole our heart with his chummy,intellectual chat everyday. Unfortunately we could'nt be able to meet Pierre he was on a trip to the Caribbean islands but we are sending our best regards to him and thank him a lot for accepting :-) us to Seven Bridges Hotel after all those e-mails regarding the exotic staircase, which is breathtakingly steep and extremely narrow (look at FAQ in the web site) in your hotel. Thank you very very much for making us feel like we are having our second honeymoon, we fell in love with your hotel and city full of romance,art and a lot of fun.....
