How to do justice to our 7 night stay at Seven Bridges? I am resorting to plagiarism. A Dijon couple wrote [google translation] in 2009 "It is undeniable that the quality and success of our stay is largely due to our accommodation". YES! Seven Bridges is a house, a lovingly restored and decorated very very old Amsterdam canal house. The traditional hospitality practiced by Gunter and Pierre ensure that when you are a guest in this house, it is your home. The house is Amsterdam, the decor is a divesity of beauty. Of a myriad of delights, I note the Corneille print on the stairwell by room 5, the little garden outside room 3, and starting each day with Pierre's smile and his beautiful breakfasts.
Places in Amsterdam that we became especially attached to: L'Express Restaurant at Utrechtsestraat 29 [4 minute walk]; the Stedelijk Museum and the Eye Museum. We had very high expectations of Seven Bridges, it exceeded our dreams.
