Embarking on my solo journey through Europe, Amsterdam served as the thrilling starting point. With its scenic canals and historic charm, the city captivates tourists with its unique blend of cultural richness and laid-back atmosphere. The city also boasts a variety of other tourist attractions that are sure to delight visitors. With a list of must-visit places in mind, the next puzzle piece was finding the perfect place to stay. A quick online search led me to the discovery of ClinkNOORD, a promising abode for my European adventure.

Convenient kiosks are available in the reception area, and there’s also a helpful staff member on hand to assist guests during the check-in process. Being a first-timer, I sought assistance from the staff member. With his guidance, I successfully navigated the check-in process and received a link to access my digital door keys. To utilize these keys, the Goki app had to be downloaded, adding a modern touch to the accommodation experience.
