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.

First trip to Amsterdam

This hotel is magnificent - canal-side, perfectly located amongst the "nine streets", in converted old houses in delightful style. Superb service, wonderful restaurants in-house and nearby. It is expensive but worth the money.

wonderful experience

we had a wonderful experience at Pulitzer Amsterdam. the staff is tremendous. from the bell captain to the restaurant team to the concierge, everyone was professional and helpful. it is a unique hotel with a great breakfast...i am sure the other meals are top notch.

i would definitely recommend Pulitzer.

i will say that you need to be ready for room-envy. every room is different so realize that other rooms may have features that you do not. for example, we had a balcony overlooking Prinsengracht and a large bathroom with a giant tub. our friends faced the lesser street of Keizersgracht but they had a sitting area.

Spectacular hotel

Amazing hotel in an excellent neighborhood. The history, architecture, and interiors are extraordinary. Our room was very pretty and well appointed.

We were very surprised to receive a complimentary bottle of champagne after checking in. The food and service are also top notch. We absolutely loved the hotel and its uniqueness! Only downside is that the rooms are small.

Shout out to our drivers, Dennis and Marselle (hotel-airport transfers), for the personalized service. They were fantastic.
