Amsterdam, February 21st

It’s a treat for the parents, a 3 night weekend during the February mid-term break in the lovely 4* Mercure Hotel Amsterdam West. Just 4km from Schiphol Airport, the hotel is within easy access of the city centre, while being surrounded by lush nature reserves for a proper relaxing break away.

As with other No Kids Allowed trips, you might decide to bring a friend or go alone, so you can choose between rooms with a King Size bed for single occupancy, or a spacious twin-bedded room for two. All rooms are modern and comfortably furnished, bathroom with shower, air conditioning, hairdryer, shaving mirror, flat screen TV, safe,  T&C facilities and WIFI. If you’d really like to treat yourselves, upgrade to a Privilege Room with a garden view, or a more spacious Junior Suite.

The hotel restaurant and bar serves food from 8am until 10pm, with a delicious menu offering an extensive choice of healthy, tasty and light meals prepared with a variety of fresh produce. Each dish is prepared with simple, natural ingredients. You will taste the difference.

On arrival the hotel shuttle brings you straight to the hotel, where you can set down your bags and just relax. Near Mercure Hotel Amsterdam West you’ll find the Oeverlanden and the Amsterdamse Bos. Both are beautiful nature reserves which offer all the room you need for a stroll and a picnic. The perfect place to quietly enjoy the lush green surroundings. Discover the beautiful historic centre of Amsterdam, which can be easily accessed from the hotel. Enjoy a cultural outing to Rijksmuseum or Van Gogh Museum and definitely visit Anne Frank House. Browse around the famous Albert Cuypmarkt and Waterlooplein, and so much more to be squeezed into your short but amazing weekend.

Explore the city via the Hop On Hop Off Canal Boats, wander through the winding alleyways and marvel at the architecture, or rent a bike and travel like a local visiting all the kerbside cafes, restaurants and bars, this is your long weekend!
