It is finally holiday time for the family and the kids got to choose this year. We gave them the choices of Amsterdam, Cancun, Paris or they could choose some place more local. The kids, of course, chose Amsterdam. No biggie really since I wanted to go there too. The hardest part for me was I have never been there and had absolutely no idea how to go about finding hotels, tourist information or general cost of things. I did discover a site, http://www.amsterdamholidayapartments.com, that had holiday apartments in Amsterdam. From the reviews I have read, they are just like having your own home base on vacation.
The major thing that I look for when I am looking into hotels is who is more home like. I want to be comfortable and relaxed on vacation. I do not want to feel like I am being rushed to get out for housekeeping or have to order food 2 hours before I want it. I really think using a holiday apartment will work out best for our family. We enjoy our privacy and do not want to be pestered by hotel management all the time. Most of the apartments I have looked at come furnished with everything you would have at home, including a kitchen. That is so convenient and quite the luxury to have. Now, my biggest issue is finding one that will be suitable for me and the rest of the family. We all want/need certain things and that is one thing that most hotels expect. They can pretty much accommodate to anything you need. I am kind of expecting the same with the apartments since they seem to be a couple steps above a hotel. I guess the only way to find out is start making some calls and finding the perfect spot to stay for what is sure to be a near perfect vacation.
