Did we create the cutest Christmas tree ever, or what? Adorned with stuffed lions, our Lions Tree might just make our lobby the most Christmasy in the whole of Amsterdam!

The Dutch version on Santa Claus, called Sinterklaas, rode into town again recently in preparation of celebrating his birthday here on December 5. His traditional stop by our hotel for a refreshing beverage and some carrots for his horse was hosted by Andy & Cherina this year. The whole thing is just slightly more believable than Santa Claus' sled, reindeer and elves, but only just.

That went fast: The Amsterdam Light Festival is almost upon us. Starting November 28 you can enjoy Amsterdam transformed into a true city of lights with the help of contemporary (inter)national light artists.

And once again, it's Gay Pride weekend! Saturday's Canal Parade is the highlight of this whole affair, and the weather promises to be amazing, so put your Speedo's on and join the fun. ‪#‎agpshare‬

While she should have been working, our executive housekeeper, Marsella, posed with the IAmsterdam sign which is temporarily residing on Dam Square because of the Beach Volleyball World Championships currently taking place in Holland. She managed to finish her work on time nevertheless, as she is the consumate professional. ‪#‎FIVBWorldChamps‬

Can you feel the excitement? Today's the start of the Beach Volleyball World Championships taking place in three Dutch cities. Amsterdam is one of these cities and the venue is actually right around the corner from us on Dam Square. A bit of beach right in the middle of Amsterdam. we like! #FIVBWorldChamps

This is what our terrace will look like, eventually. Ours is the only terrace left on the Damrak, and it'll be absolutely splendid once we've torn down today's somewhat ungainly reincarnation of it and will have replaced it with this beauty.

This picture may not tell you much, but it's our GM's office, and it's almost ready to welcome its new occupant, Rob Veeger, this coming Monday. A momentous occassion for Hotel Amsterdam De Roode Leeuw, where GMs tend to stay forever. Our current GM, Mr.Wildeman, has made an inestimable contribution to our success though and we're extremely grateful he put up with us for so long.

There's a new kid in town. His name is Veeger, Rob Veeger. After 16 years our current GM, René Wildeman, will give up trying to general manage us, and Mr. Veeger will have a go at it. Mr. Veeger has had extensive experience in the hospitality industry, is originally from the Dutch province Groningen and owns a Morgan classic car.   We'll sorely miss Mr. Wildeman, but kindly people that we are, we'll welcome Mr. Veeger with open arms.

Not content with having just one big bearded man dispensing gifts, Holland has two of them. The Dutch invention called Sinterklaas arrived from Spain (don't ask) by boat last Sunday and will do his gift giving on December 5 after which he'll make room for Santa Claus, and the second round of gifts. The Dutch truly are a blessed people!
