Happy 2010 – Looking forward to 365 nights in Amsterdam Hotels

Happy 2010, the start of a new decade!

A new web 2.0 social media hotel review project:
Amsterdam counts 350 hotels and Vincent Van Dijk starts his dedicated blog Amsterdam Slaapt (i.e. Amsterdam Sleeps). Each day of 2010 he will tell us about his adventures in one of those 350 hotels, as each day of 2010 he will be sleeping out of his suitcase in one.

As Vincent uses to live and work in The Hague I’m really curious what his experience will be. Especially as my slogan is always: You should party in Amsterdam, but you should sleep in The Hague!

Nevertheless it is an interesting initiative which I will be following closely as he seems to plan to be reporting in Dutch only.

Here is Victor’s first Tweet as @AmsterdamSlaapt

  1. My wife and I are looking for a pleasant hotel in central Amsterdam – we’ll be traveling there at the end of April, and it’s our first trip to Amsterdam. Our budget isn’t high — under 200 Euros a night. And we’re travelling by train, so we’d like our accommodation to be fairly close to the train station.
