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.

How to Get There
I can't recommend the Pulitizer Amsterdam enough! My mom, daughter, and I all hated to leave when our trip was over - everything from our room to the restaurants to the gym to the staff were top notch! From the moment we arrived to the moment we left, our visit to Amsterdam was made even more special because of our stay at The Pulitzer. We would highly recommend the concierge team - they were excellent at providing directions, assisting with reservations and making all sorts of recommendations for our adventures around town. Every single one that we interacted with were wonderful and engaging. I'm ready to book my next trip just so I can stay at The Pulitizer again!
This was my second stay at the Pulitzer Amsterdam, and it certainly won‘t be my last. The level of care and thought that is put into the service here is unreal. The staff really makes you feel welcome. I’d have to say they thought of everything here. It is a luxury 5 star hotel, so you are going to pay more per night, however it is worth every penny! There is nothing bad to say about this establishment. I would highly recommend staying here if you ever get the chance
I absolutely loved this hotel. The location was great and the hotel overall was very unique. Love that they combined 15 terraces together to create a wonderful experience. Only downfall would be on two occasions housekeeping didn't knock, though we're thankful with the second instance otherwise we would have slept in
The hotel is superb in every way. The rooms were spacious, clean and cosy. The ambience of the hotel is warm and friendly. The staff are there ready to help at every juncture of our stay. Breakfast will superb as well, they offer the buffet along with a menu to choose a cooked option which is prepared as you like it. The location is perfect just in front of the canal and around the hotel the streets surrounding it are lovely. We also used the hotel's own boat for a tour of Amsterdam.
Located on the popular 9 streets; along one of the canals, this stunning hotel is walking distance from everything and offers the sort of accommodation and service one would expect for a hotel in this price bracket.
Staff were extremely friendly and helpful, bed extremely comfortable and shower superb. We doned in the hotels restaurant, ordered room service and used their concierge service - all of which were excellent experiences.
Wonderful hotel and well worthy of its good reputation!
