Overview

Quirky design hotel on an island in the Ij River with colorful interiors and a late night lounge bar

The Lowdown

On an island in the Ij River, close to Amsterdam Centraal Station, Room Mate Aitana is a fun design hotel within striking distance of the city’s top attractions. Built in 2013, it sports a clean, contemporary aesthetic — think angular lines, swaths of glass and colorful abstract sculptures. The 284 guestrooms are equally playful, decked out with designer chairs, geometric rugs, patterned walls and floor-to-ceiling windows. The higher category Executive Rooms feature fabulous artworks, giant bathtubs and sweeping harbor views. Elsewhere, there’s a restaurant, a gym, a business center, a sun terrace and a hip little lounge bar open until 1 a.m., while the immediate neighborhood, with its cool cafés and arty startups, is ripe for exploration.

In the Area

Amsterdam’s former shipyards are now home to its hippest neighborhood. Abandoned factories and vast empty warehouses have been transformed into cafés, restaurants, arts hubs and event spaces. For a contemporary culture fix, head to the cool NDSM Wharf or the EYE Film Institute. Later, linger over colorful plates of Cajun jambalaya and superfresh cerviche at the industrial-chic Noorderlicht Café. Top to-dos include a visit to see the Dutch Masters at the Rijksmuseum, a bike ride through Vondelpark, a shopping visit to the Nine Streets and a café-hop around the pretty residential neighborhood of Jordaan.
