Amsterdam, Brussels & Paris in December

Jump to last reply

My husband and I finally decided on a trip in December thanks to the great advice we have read on these forums. We tossed around a lot of ideas, but finally decided to go to Amsterdam, Brussels and Paris.

We arrive in Amsterdam at 6am on December 21st, and leave from Paris at 2pm on December 30th. This is how we were thinking of structuring our trip:

December 21 - December 24 - Amsterdam (early morning train on 12/24)
December 24 - December 26 - Brussels (early morning train on 12/26)
December 26 - December 30 - Paris

Our new thought is to leave Amsterdam the afternoon of 12/23 and head to Brussels for 3 nights. The main reason we would do this is because the hotels in Brussels are must cheaper then the hotels in Amsterdam and we could save a decent amount if we do this.

Do you think this new plan is okay or we should stick with the original plan? In the end, it's probably only a savings of $200 - $300, but every penny counts, right?

The hotels we are looking at:
Amsterdam - Sofitel
Brussels - Rocco Forte Hotel Amigo
Paris - up in the air! Hoping to be in the St. Germain area for no more then $400/night.

All thoughts and comments are welcome. Would love to hear about any great hotels, and any advice on what to do in Brussels during Christmas (I've read a lot about the Christmas markets). Thanks in advance.
