The Dylan Amsterdam**

Ok, I had a bit of a splurge last week... It was my birthday, moving up age groups makes me officially older, so there was only one thing for it - a trip to Amsterdam in a dead swanky hotel!! Stay at The Dylan if you ever go to Amsterdam. It's an old townhouse in the traditional Amsterdam merchant style, but Anouska Hempel has transformed the inside into a luxurious, dark, contemporary bolthole. We blagged a room in the Kimono style, the interior giving a nod to the city's golden age and colonial past. The room was a duplex and so had stairs leading to a bathroom mezanine with bath underneath exposed black lacquer beams. This is the nicest hotel I have ever stayed in - not only because the design was beautiful but because it conveyed exactly it's past while it's design was 100 percent in it's time.
