trip to venlo

by meldy517 Online Now Jun 5, 2012 at 9:44 PM

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:

    lustforlimburg.com/accommoda...

    as a source for finding hotels.

    The Floriade website itself has a section on accommodations as well:
    floriade.com/accommodation-a...

    On our own VT Venlo page this is the cheapest local hotel:
    Hotel Wilhelmina


    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...
