The Hoxton Amsterdam
What We Love
- A 17th-century canal house that was once home to the mayor
- The central location, which is right on the Herengracht and near the city’s best sights
- Kicking back with an artfully-crafted cocktail in the stylish lobby bar
What To Know
- It’s a 10- to 15-minute walk to Dam Square
- While Canal View rooms offer great sights, they're also noisier
- Some rooms can only be reached through a stairway
- Free, reliable WiFi
- Free WiFi
The Dutch outpost of renowned hotel group Hoxton puts an emphasis on chic design, laid-back luxury, and impeccable service—though you’ll already be sold with its location right on the Herengrach, one of the city’s main canals and just minutes from the art museums, bars, clubs, and cafés that give this vibrant and progressive city its edge. The property was originally five separate canal houses, where the city’s mayor once lives back in the 17th century, but has since been combined into one beautiful 111-room stay. While all guest rooms feature flat-screen TVs, well-stocked minibars, and playful décor, the ones most requested for are the inviting Cosy Canal View rooms, which promise tasteful contemporary design and incredible overlooks of Herengrach. After days spent marveling at artworks by celebrated Dutch painter Vincent Van Gogh and hitting the famous bicycle-crazed streets to shop its quirky boutiques, head back to the hotel’s stylish lobby bar for craft beers and cocktails before savoring delicious cuisine at the Italian-inspired restaurant Lotti’s, where a retractable roof makes it a fashionable spot to be during sunnier days. (Lotti’s also provides for the breakfast bag you’ll find outside your door each morning, filled with goodies like fresh orange juice, yogurt, granola, and a banana.)
In the Area
Being right on the Herengracht, one of Amsterdam’s most important main canals, you’ll be able to enjoy all the best the Dutch capital has to offer. Must-dos include checking out the rose garden at Vondelpark, visiting the Anne Frank House, and getting a closer look at Dutch and international art masterpieces at the Rijksmuseum, modern and contemporary art at Stedelijk, and, of course, the Van Gogh Museum. The floating Bloemenmarkt flower market, also nearby, is the place to stock up on tulips, and it’s worth popping by the city’s seedier side in the Red Light District. You’re also in close proximity to the 17th-century Royal Palace, right in Dam Square, which offers tours of its magnificent interiors when not being used for a royal event.
How to Get There
Loved to stay here. Everything was just perfect we couldn’t wish better.
I have to highlight the staff they were very kind, friendly and always helpful.
Well done Hoxton we will definitely come back!!!
I've visited for a short weekend trip to Amsterdam and had a great experience. The staff was friendly and helpful. Perfectly located, the Hoxton showed off with a nice vibe, good food and excellent rooms. The place to be in Amsterdam!
I travel a lot for business and it is very difficult to find a place which ticks so many boxes. Hoxton does, from personnel to service, comfort and atmosphere it is a great place to stay. I will certainly return to Hoxton in other locations too,
I honestly cannot recommend this place enough! The location is perfect, very central making it easy to walk to pretty much anywhere. The decor is beautiful, very cosy whilst staying chic. We went for the standard cosy rooms which are small but have exactly what you need, and the clever storage solutions means that you don't feel like you're crammed in. Breakfast at the hotel was divine, but they also offer a free mini breakfast everyday which is delivered to your door for your chosen time. Consisting of freshly squeezed OJ, a banana and yogurt, granola and fruit.
Stayed here in March 2019 and a wonderful experience over three nights. A modern quirky hotel with great food and a large space to relax eat or drink at any time of day. The room was comfortable though small, this is a city centre hotel after all, and the inclusive light breakfast in the room was a nice touch. Reception staff could not have been more helpful and we thoroughly recommend this hotel.
