I wanted to plan something a bit special for myself and my lady without breaking the bank in Amsterdam. I spoke with the Frederic guys a couple times over e-mails to explore my options and they gave me several within my budget.
The pictures they showed me didn't do the place justice, we spent slightly more than what dormitory style accommodation would've cost for the two us but received 5 star lodging.
When we arrived the owners son and his assistant, Asher went to great lengths to explain the best places to eat, drink and visit during our stay. It really felt like they cared how our stay went, rather than just getting our money and forgetting about us.
Easily the best experience I've had whilst travelling. Keep up the good effort guys.
