A comfortable and convenient base right in the heart of Amsterdam, a stone's throw from Dam Square

The Lowdown

Whether you search by foot, tram, bike or canal boat, you won’t find a better base for your Amsterdam explorations than Hotel Amsterdam De Roode Leeuw. Located in the heart of the city’s gorgeous historic district, this four-star urban oasis puts some of Amsterdam’s top attractions just a stone’s throw from your doorstep, including Dam Square and the National Monument, as well as the Royal Palace, Madame Tussauds and more.

With roots dating back to the 15th century, when the site was home to an inn, the hotel was rebuilt in 1911 and bears the distinction of being one of the few remaining independently owned hotels in the city. The modern and brightly refurbished rooms offer minimalist-inspired décor and make for a comfortable base where you can recharge your batteries after a day spent exploring one of Europe’s most enchanting cities.

Beautiful hotel, centre of the city.

This hotel is in a great location. You have many of the main tourist attractions right outside the main entrance, such as madame tussads, riplys believe it or not, boat tours and the zoo was only 20 minute walk away. The room was amazing quality, double bed with a bath and shower head. Staff were lovely and accomidating.I would 100% stay here again.

Amazingly central location, chic, welcoming and comfortable
