If you are planning a trip to the Netherlands, visit horse stables. You probably need a hotel to stay. I made a list of hotels in the neighbourhood. Every hotel has his pros and cons, but the one I describe are all good. Here my top 3. Of course there are maybe 10 more hotels special for you, but not as good.

My personal favourite is the Oranje hotel, perfect place in the city. Food in the hotel is very culinary, so I prefer to visit one of the restaurants in walking distance(2/3 minutes).
