Rent a bike and see Amsterdam
The WestCord Art Hotel Amsterdam allows guests to rent bikes from 6,50 EUR for four hours to a full day rental. There is a bike lane that takes you from the hotel straight to the city center. If you love architecture, make sure to stop by the Paleis van Justitie(courthouse) on your way to the center. There are some amazing structures in that area to include modern residential buildings and the gorgeous lobby of the Room Mate Hotel. Get lost on the streets of Amsterdam by bike, pay attention to the street art, peer into the windows of the gorgeous homes that have lined the canals for centuries. It’s a great way to discover small cafés like Scandinavian Embassy, a gourmet café recommended by fellow blogger Alla from Live Like You're Traveling. Spend the afternoon people watching on your bike at Westerpark. It’s a place where locals come together with their kids, their dogs, and most importantly, their bikes. The center of the park has art spaces, cafes, and restaurants. Tip: Don't be intimidated by bike riding in Amsterdam.
