Huis Marseille

Huis Marseille was founded in 1999, making it Amsterdam’s first photo museum. With quarterly changing exhibitions, every season, a new look at the photography and versatility of this medium is being thrown. In the era of captivating image culture and ubiquitous cameras, Huis Marseille focuses on the image. Not only see, but really looking.

The original 17th-century layout of the house is still largely intact three hundred years later: with a front house, courtyard, backhouse and garden.

From September 9 until December 3 there will be an exhibition (Landscape with Tree) in Huis Marseille of Jamie Hawkesworth (1987), a British photographer who has risen to great height in the fashion world, with campaigns for, among others, Vogue, MiuMiu and Loewe.




Looking for the perfect basics, this is the right place for you. Unrecorded…..just opened the doors. You can find them just around the corner from the nine streets in the heart of Amsterdam. Besides to their organic basics, they also have a great collection of magazines and accessories.

Hotel de Goudfazant

Hotel de Goudfazant is not a hotel, but a nice restaurant with a rough and raw interior. This place has been around for 10 years and is still going strong! It is located in Amsterdam North and used to be a paint factory. There is plenty of parking space. Another good alternative is the ferry from Central Station or Java eiland. The menu depends on the season. You will eat a delicious menu for about €35,- Hotel de Goudfazant is definitely worth a visit!



Scandinavian Embassy

I love this minimalistic cozy place, with lots of natural light. Overlooking the park in a trendy area. They have the best cinnamon buns, freshly baked several times a day. Famous for their egg benedict, which is delicious. This minimalistic modern Scandinavian place is often busy and has limited sitting place, which means you have to wait for a seat. Try the carrot cake!

Pulitzer Hotel Amsterdam

The Pulitzer is more than a hotel, it houses a fabulous cocktail bar and a private boat for canal tours! A typical amsterdam elegance in a surprising maze of 25 pooled canal houses dating from Golden Age. The little secret green garden inbetween the canalhouses makes this place even more charming. Discover this very unique hotel in the heart of Amsterdam.


Hoxton Hotel Amsterdam

A prime location for a romantic weekend away at this hotel….The Hoxton Amsterdam in the heart of Amsterdam. Right on the Herengracht canal. A cozy place where you can sleep or catching up with a friend, while having a coffee or tea. For those who love a delicious lunch or breakfast, they also serve great truffle fries in the Lotti’s restaurant. If I’m here, I really feel like I’m at HOME. Enjoy your visit or stay!



Bocca coffee

There are so many good coffee places in Amsterdam, but if you want a real good cappuccino you need to go to this place. Offering its own coffee beans. The baristas are very friendly and laid back and know exactly what to do for a nice cup of coffee. It’s a cozy place with a big wooden table that gives you the opportunity to work or study.

buffet van odette

I’m very happy here because of the good atmosphere. They serve the most delicious salad from the buffet and truffle cheese omelette. Also the aperitivo is highly recommended. Save room for the carrot cake, that melts in your mouth. Simple, yet so tastefully prepared. By the way…. it’s always busy but worth the wait!
