Amsterdam is full of contrasts, effortlessly fusing contemporary style with a distinct heritage that sets the city apart. The lacework of canals, each lined with gorgeous 17th-century houses, sidewalk cafés, antique shops and independent boutiques invite day-long wanders. Live like a local here, with a stay set just out of town in Amsterdam East, and discover the newer side to the city’s eclectic mix at a hotel positioned on one of a number of artificial islands in IJburg.
Amadi Panorama Hotel lives up to its name, with panoramic views over the waterways, thanks to its lofty location on the upper floors of a striking building near the waterside. Stylish throughout, it’s packed with mid-century-inspired, custom-made furniture, designer lighting and brushed parquet floors, all set against a palette of earthy pastels. Organic and fair-trade produce is presented over breakfast, and rooms boast environmentally friendly showers, among other contemporary comforts – complimentary minibar, anyone?
Rooms and suites
The contemporary accommodations here feature custom-made furniture and designer lighting, for an effortless, interiors-magazine look. Superior rooms, with a queen bed, afford enough space for a corner couch, while Junior suites are larger and offer a king. Both come with lovely views over the area.
The hotel’s restaurant is located on the eighth floor, with large windows overlooking the area. Here, you can enjoy a flavorful breakfast, created from both organic and fair-trade products. For other dining options, the small harbor just 10 minutes away on foot offers a handful of restaurants.
Amadi Panorama Hotel is located in IJburg, just next door to its main shopping center. This part of the city is called Amsterdam East, and it’s made up of a number of artificial islands, with plenty of modern architecture and excellent views over the water. It’s just 12 minutes by tram to the city center.
How to Get There
The hotel is located on the 7th & 8th floor in an apartment complex located at IJburg, Amsterdam. We booked a double deluxe room and got the room assigned on the 7th floor. The room is OK in size and a good bed. On the other hand, the location is kind of off limit if you arrive by car. No small stop area to offload your luggage, one has to go to the car park located under the shopping area nearby. One has to pass the regular apartment main entrance to take the elevator to the reception area. Which isn’t the problem unless you try to use the elevator at peak times when people come and go to their apartments or with high occupancy. Room is awkwardly designed with the bathroom separated by glass wall to the bedroom. So if one is a light sleeper and your partner goes to the washroom (or vice versa) and use the bathroom light one is right awake. Bathroom lights are limited and makes it complicated to shave or apply make up. Toilet paper of low quality and tissue box close to empty with one paper inside. Room furniture and fixture are dusty. Housekeeping returns cleaned rooms to the available room inventory for guest allocation, without be checked. Breakfast served on the 8th floor is fine. In our case be on the 7th floor, and you check out, you need to take all the luggage go up to the 8th floor first to the reception. You cannot go back because of security reason, the floor doors are only to open by keycard (you get only one keycard upon check in). Troublesome and walking again over the street back to the car park. They offer strong WiFi and you have the tram stopping not far from the hotel bringing you direct to Centraal Station, in the midst of Amsterdam by max 16 minutes one way. On a final note have your staff more hotel oriented trained.

For a short 2 night Amsterdam trip with my mother I found the Amadi Panorama hotel. I knew from the map that the hotel is not exactly central to Amsterdam but I must say I found the location to be near perfect. The hotel is cituated in a modern, quiet neighbourhood, with great views, shops and cafes. The tramline runs right outside and is very frequent, directly to Amsterdam Centraal, after buying a 72 hour we could literally to hop on and off, coming and going from the hotel as we pleased, very accessible. The hotel itself is very nice, the lobby is modern, clean and welcoming, with a smallish seating area, but more than big enough for the hotel. The staff were very friendly and helpful, they couldnt be nicer. The rooms are well put together, the stand out feature being the bathroom which was beautifully designed. The room itself could be deemed on the small side, for 2 nights it didnt bother me in the slightest but for a longer stay you may feel slightly enclosed. We stopped in a twin room and so with the beds slightly more spread out this may have added to the smaller feeling. The beds were comfy, there is a foam mattress topper which may not be to everyones taste (my mum loved it but it gave me a bad back the first night as it was very soft), upon inspection it appears the cleaners dont go as far as under the topper, we found stains and hairs from previous guests, not brilliant but not a deal breaker, unless ofcourse you are inclined to remove the topper to opt for the harder mattress. Personally none of these issues really bothered me or my mother, and the friendly staff, modern well equipped room and lovely location was more than enough to make up for it. I would most definitely stay here on a short break to Amsterdam again.
