A charming hotel, imaginatively constructed within authentic canal houses

The Lowdown

When it comes to places to stay in Amsterdam, the five-star Pulitzer takes the ‘speculoos’. This 225-room city pad is set within 25 restored 17th- and 18th-century canal houses in one of Amsterdam’s hippest neighborhoods, right in the middle of a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Inside, the hotel oozes an air of effortless elegance. Designed by Jacu Strauss (who had a hand in designed the Mondrian London under Tom Dixon), rooms are sophisticated yet cozy, drawing inspiration from the moody work of Old Master oil paintings and traditional Dutch design details like Delft tiles and stucco ceilings while also incorporating more modern pieces like Maarten Baas furniture and Persian rugs by Piet Hein Eek. Pulitzer Amsterdam’s dining and drinking services can be enjoyed either at the lobby café, Pause, the signature restaurant Jansz, Pulitzer’s Bar, or in the intimacy of your own room. The chefs here are encouraged to create dishes as elegant and sumptuous as their surroundings, whether in the day’s buffet breakfast or a sophisticated evening dinner. When the sun is shining, head to the hotel’s garden and lobby café, Pause, for al-fresco drinks and nibbles.

In the Area

Pulitzer Amsterdam is located in the very heart of Amsterdam, easily within reach of many of the city’s most popular spots, including Dam Square, the Royal Palace, the Anne Frank House, and Nine Streets. There are also plenty of world-renowned museums nearby, such as the Van Gogh Museum and the Rijksmuseum. The nearest tram stop is Westermarkt, which is just a 2-minute walk from the hotel.

Unusual hotel
Reviewed 1 day ago

Good location. Very comfortable and large room. They have converted the houses very well and made a nice hotel as a result. Staff were generally friendly but we were unhappy to be moved out of the bar because it was apparently too busy. We didn’t drink there again after that.

Comfortable and a bit quirky
Reviewed 2 days ago

Although it has been open for many years the Pulitzer felt modern and was well decorated with a few quirky touches. Our room was comfortable but there were a couple of minor annoyances - for example there was only one reading light by the bed and only one accessible socket which meant charging our devices was a challenge. The concierge was helpful and all the staff were cheerful and polite. The hotel is very well located for exploring Amsterdam.

our new 1st choice for Amsterdam
Reviewed 3 days ago

My wife and I are regular annual visitors to Amsterdam. This was our 1st visit to this most remarkable of hotels however. 25 17th and 18th century houses seamlessly connected.The Pulitzer bar is a most welcoming area to begin and end an evening; the waiting team are a pleasure to deal with.. So too the Jansz restaurant where we ate on three occasions.We dealt direct with hotel reservations and were therefore able to discuss the various room options available. Clearly with a hotel complex such as this it is to be expected that probably no two rooms will be identical. We chose a 'generous room with canal view'.It was a delight,beautifully appointed and situated above the bar(no noise) overlooking the Keizersgracht.
All in all a most satisfying experience;one which we hope to repeat soon.
Not cheap but good value nonetheless.
5 stars all the way.
