    To visit Amsterdam and not explore De

    to go only to gawk at its saucier aspects
    would mean missing the opportunity to view
    some of the city’s most picturesque

    Does the hotel usually require the 1st night payment for pre authorization ? And then they hold onto that and don't get it back for 10 working days?

    They charge you full price in advance with no possibility of a refund. Crooks.
