Located off a bustling Amsterdam sidewalk, De Witt’s stark exterior belies its warm, boutique feel. Although technically part of Kimpton, the design team worked hard to make the hotel (housed in five adjoining townhouses, three of which date back to the Renaissance) feel like part of the city’s fabric: a 17th-century poet’s apartment has been transformed into a three-story suite, the bar is lined with historic wallpaper, seating areas are decorated with local gallery art, and you’ll even find modern takes on traditional Delft tiles in guest room showers. This isn’t to say that the San Francisco-based brand resisted adding touches of Americana into the grand scheme. There’s a cute beignet and coffee window serving piping-hot pastries, while the onsite restaurant, Wyers, is all about modern takes on American comfort food. Whatever you do, don’t skip cocktails at the bar: the bartenders are experts at their craft and well-versed in the city’s long and storied history of gin production.
In the Area
You can’t get more central—or closer to onward transit—than this property. Amsterdam Centraal is about 10 minutes away on foot, while the hotel’s fleet of bicycles puts the rest of the city within easy reach. From the hotel, it’s just 10 minutes by bike to major sights like the Van Gogh Museum and Rijksmuseum, a 13-minute walk to the Anne Frank House, and less than 20 minutes on foot to Jordaan, an chic neighborhood great for shopping. For those who enjoy a brisk jog, the hotel’s general manager leads morning runs.
How to Get There
Very professional staff, extremely hygienic rooms and brand new public areas. Close to central train station and old town. Simply the best I have stayed so far. They go beyond to make your stay enjoyable
My partner and I stayed here for 3 nights as part of a holiday around Europe.
From the moment we walked into the hotel we received friendly service from the concierge and the lady on the front desk. She was well presented, incredibly helpful and gave us insightful information regarding Amsterdam's local transport and sightseeing.
The hotel room was clean, tidy and beautifully styled. Plenty of space and the soap, body wash and shower products were luxurious, quality products. Upon arriving at our room, there was also key giving us a complimentary drink at the House Bar.
We loved that the hotel offered complimentary tea and hot chocolate in the lounge in the mornings. This was a really nice touch and it was great to take a hot drink with us as we walked the cold streets of Amsterdam.
We are so pleased that we stayed at De Witt in Amsterdam. It was fantastic value for money, as well as a beautiful hotel. We will definitely stay here again on our next visit to Amsterdam. Thank you for a great hotel experience!
I just got back from a mini break to the Kimpton Amsterdam with a group of 12 girls - gorgeous modern boutique hotel, beautiful design and modern style whilst also managing to stay cosy and homely. The rooms were perfectly equipped and super clean and the service from start to finish was flawless. The happy hour and cocktails at the bar complimentary were also a really lovely touch! Will for sure be back! xx

I recommend this hotel to anyone an I will definitely be back 🙌🏽.
Had a weekend at Kimpton De Witt and we're really happy about our choice of hotel in Amsterdam. The hotel is modern with a lot of small added values, like the wine hour, free drink vouchers++. The hotel also have nice common areas and the bar is quite cool. Service was great from check-in to check out, and the location is also optimal for a weekend trip. Except that the bathroom design made me slightly dizzy, I can't really say that I have anything to complain about with the hotel. Would stay again!
