We stayed in the Water apartment. It was warm, spacious and comfortable and could hardly have been better placed as it's next door to the Concertgebouw and a short walk across the park from the Rijksmuseum, Our host Norman Heemskerk could not have been more helpful and friendly and we really enjoyed talking to him. He had great advice on where to eat, to book a canal cruise, how to get around and so on.
Amsterdam is a wonderful city. In a long weekend we managed two lengthy visits to the Rijksmuseum (the €15 admisison covers a whole year!), an orchestra concert, an afternoon in the Rembrandthuis, a boat trip and some lovely meals out. There is even an "outpost" of the Rijksmuseum with free admission at Schiphol airport.
All in all it was a most wonderful weekend that we'll never forget. If we manage a return trip we'll definitely book to stay at the Heemskirk suites.
