Housed in the former headquarters of a shipping company, this canal-side gem retains many of the building’s historic features, like the paternoster elevators (this is one of only two buildings in Amsterdam with these wacky contraptions in working order) and the incredible stained glass ceiling in the Van Der Mey hall. The latter is one of many picturesque venues dinner guests can experience during the novel “walking dinner,” in which diners enjoy each course in a different space in the hotel. Other options: the rooftop, with its superlative views over the city and the romantic wine vault.
In the Area
When in Amsterdam, you should at least learn about one of the city’s most famous diversions at the Hash, Marijuana and Hemp Museum, which contains over a thousand artifacts, paintings, objects and books. Feeling hungry? Head to one of the city’s more boho restaurants, like the casual-cool Van Kerkwijk, located in a lane off Dam Square, where there are no reservations or menus–instead, waiters recite the dishes of the day, which might range from French classics like steak tartare to exotic African tagines. If you’d rather taste Amsterdam’s wild side, head instead to Getto, a drag queen bar-meets-funky-burger-joint, where the cheekily named burgers are retro and the acts are always entertaining.
How to Get There
Great hotel, everything was wonderful from the moment we arrived the staff were very pleasant and helpful, we had chocolate strawberries & champagne waiting for us upon arrival. the room service was heaven (breakfast was best) it is well worth the money. The lady bar tender made the best mojoito I’ve had the pleasure to drink. The hotel is in a great location for walking or riding the train & is very convenient to Dam Square, Centraal Station etc. I will definitely stay here when we come back my husband & I have traveled to Amsterdam many times and we have stayed in lots of hotels from cheap to expensive and this is the best!!
This is the best hotel I have ever stayed in.The building is amazing and beautiful.It is full of history which the staff are more than happy to tell you about.
The pool and sauna were very luxurious.
The bedroom was huge with espresso coffee machine,free beverages in fridge.
Extremely comfortable bed and bed linen.
The bathroom was large with bath,separate shower,two sinks,Rituals toiletries and loads of towels.
The staff were all very helpful and friendly.
Well deserved 5 stars
You cannot beat this hotel for style, elegance and location. Walking into the lobby, you are greeted by wrought iron, sumptuous woods and mirrors and glass. The rooms were enormous! Let's not even talk about the extra deep bathtub and the rainforest shower. Centrally located, close to Centraal Station and a tram ride away from wherever you want to go. Customer service is also excellent. They cannot do enough for you. Highly recommend.
The room was MASSIVE! Everything was spotless. Staff were attentive and always had a real smile for the customers. It seemed like every member of staff enjoys working there, and enjoys helping the customer. Amazing service! Check in was fast. Any questions I had were answered quickly. I will be back.
I’ve stayed here over the years many times and last week again. To be honest, it doesn’t change. Some bullet points to be concise.
It’s clean, tidy and very well located.
The staff have always been very pleasant except one guy who works in the bar who seems to have an attitude.
The rooms are decent. Not great but good - from the variety I’ve stayed in. The junior suites are very good.
Avoid breakfast. It’s often a massacre site, with little food, no one to serve and it’s too expensive. This is a constant.
The spa is excellent.
They want a massive deposit which I’m sorry to say, they do not do at other high end hotels in Amsterdam. Not to this level anyway.
Is it 5 star? No way. But it’s a good hotel and if you ensure you’re not in a room near the everlasting construction project, you won’t go wrong.
