Two rather fab looking places to stay in Amsterdam have caught my eye over the past few days.
The Parool last week carried an item about the only bed and breakfast on IJburg - an amazing-looking wooden house with a very stylish interior. The owners chalk a welcome to new guests on the sidewalk in front.
Drawback here is no website, so you have to book through any old b&b agency.
Then Elsevier magazine picked out a tiny apartment in a clandestine church dating from 1750. Pricey but rather wonderful. 'No where else will you be able to sleep so close to god,' the owners say on the website.
Case in point: the website itself does not have any photos. Bit of a waste. www.ophetaltaar.nl
