Amsterdam is a city built around its people, in fact the tourist board slogan is I AMsterdam. It doesn’t have an Eiffel Tower, an Empire State Building or a Shard to capture people’s attention (it may be thankful of the latter). What it does have is a free spirit, an undying pride in its civil liberties; a great heritage and community, all of which combine to provide an atmosphere that make it one of the most unique cities of the world. When you throw in the gloriously woven canals that surround the city centre, the unashamed yet surprisingly tasteful red light district and almost endless list of bars, restaurants and cafés that line the streets it makes it a great city to visit also.
Just five easy walking minutes from the central Utrecht train station is the NH hotel, a mid budget hotel of the understated comfy type the Dutch do so well, with a high quality of service, very friendly staff and the higher floors of this unassuming tower block offering unparalleled views across this jewel of a secret destination for the discerning traveller, this is a logical choice for a rail traveller.
