my sister and i plan to visit floriade 2012 in mid august. can you recommend safe, affordable / budget hotels in venlo (walking or short bus/train ride to floriade park)to stay for 3-4 nights?
is our trip plan reasonable? fly in to duesseldorf, stay 1 day, take train to venlo, stay 3-4 days for floriade, take train to amsterdam for 2 days stay, then fly out from amsterdam.
thanks! - mel
In a previous Venlo travel respons I already mentioned:
as a source for finding hotels.
The Floriade website itself has a section on accommodations as well:
On our own VT Venlo page this is the cheapest local hotel:

I would suggest staying 3 days at Amsterdam (if it's your first visit).
I have heard from several sources that the Floriade is a big and expensive disappointment...Be warned...
