Review | Kimpton De Witt Amsterdam Hotel

Review | Kimpton De Witt Amsterdam Hotel

The Kimpton De Witt Amsterdam is a 5 star, ideally located, force to be reckoned with US Boutique hotel in Central Amsterdam. With 274 deluxe rooms as well as 15 rooms in original 17th Century Townhouses the Kimpton really does have tons of character and charm.

I've had my eye on the Kimpton De Witt since last year as I loved the modern and botanical style plus the location looked ideal for a first visit, so naturally it was my first choice. As I live for affordable luxury, I took one look at the pictures and knew I didn't care about the price as I wanted to experience this gorgeous boutique hotel for you, the readers (not for myself of course).

Top 5 of Budapest

Top 5 of Budapest

A city of two halves, quite literally. Buda + Pest. Dripping in Art Nouveau architecture, it's hard to rival Budapest on beauty and style. It's like walking round the set of Wes Anderson's The Grand Budapest Hotel; a true visual orgasm!

I visited in December 2016 for the Christmas Markets, as you can imagine it was absolutely freezing and snowing...bonus. However, my pictures suffered for this joyous event so apologies in advance!
