In one room, you could see this huge table with all the silverware.
The Royal Palace was built in the seventeenth century as the new city hall of Amsterdam. After the signing of the Peace Treaty of Munster in 1648, Amsterdam started to execute its ambitious plans for a new city hall. The city council chose Jacob van Campen's design for a large and impressive new building.
When King Louis Napoleon came to Amstedam in 1808 he had the city hall turned into a royal palace. The large collection of Empire style furniture, chandeliers and clocks date from this period. The Palace is still used for official functions by Her Majesty the Queen. The Royal Palace is also open to the public on certain days and by arrangement group tours can be made.
The chances thay you will stay in the palace for the night is very slim, so here are some useful websites for you to find accomodations. I never stay overnight in Amsterdam, so I am afraid I can't give you any tips for places to stay. I hope that these websites can be useful for you :
