There are few cities that mix their heritage so effortlessly with buzzing modernity, but Amsterdam manages it beautifully. Among its beguiling maze of canals, you’ll find 17th-century houses, hip coffee shops and a plethora of stylish boutiques, as well as antique emporiums, artists’ studios and a host of fascinating museums. This eclectic mix keeps Amsterdam firmly at the top of European-escape wishlists, and with a central stay at Villa Nicola, you’re perfectly placed to find out why.
Set in a historic townhouse that dates back to the 1900s, Villa Nicola is bursting with luxurious style. The old and new seamlessly combine here to create spaces that look lifted from the pages of a sleek design mag. Mid-century furniture and parquet floors create a sleek vibe in your suite, which opens out into a tranquil inner garden or sleek sitting room, while contemporary taxidermy and Designers Guild prints pepper the communal areas. Forget the fridge magnet or postcard; your Amsterdam souvenir will likely come in the form of design inspiration for your own home.
The interior style here looks ripped from the pages of a design magazine, with parquet floors, mid-century furniture and plenty of lush, green plants. The Garden suite is a true oasis, with a conservatory area that leads out into a sheltered, inner garden. Spacious and sleek, the Urban suite has a spacious seating area, a separate bedroom and an airy bathroom.
Breakfast is served daily at Villa Nicola. When it comes to lunch and dinner, you have a plethora of Amsterdam’s offerings right at your fingertips. For something a little different, hop on the tram to Da Kas, which serves Mediterranean dishes using organic ingredients that are grown and served on-site within their impressive glasshouse. For classic Dutch dishes, you’re just a 15-minute walk from Loetje.
Amsterdam has many fascinating museums to visit, and a boat cruise along the canals provides a unique perspective of this charming city. Original paintings by both Van Gogh and Rembrandt can be found within the art galleries here. The Van Gogh Museum is just a 15-minute walk from the hotel, as is Vondelpark and the Stedelijk Museum, a haven for modern art enthusiasts. Rembrandt House Museum can be reached on foot in 20 minutes.
How to Get There
...in spite of the wild, wet weather conditions, the stylish Villa Nicola made us feel at home. Each room in the house is created with love and taste. Great breakfast combined with warm conversations with the owner, his fine and empathic nature, good organization and helpfulness on his part - this makes every stay in Amsterdam to a special and unforgettable experience...)
This place is simply gorgeous! The location, the decor, the host (Werner and his lovely dog, Kees), the breakfast, the service. We will return (I wouldn't bother looking for anywhere else to stay in Amsterdam) - there is no better accolade than that.The attention to detail was simply superb. Lovely, lovely, lovely ...
We have just returned from a City Break in Amsterdam and stayed in this fabulous B& B. The accommodation is well laid out with spacious bedroom, sitting area and fully refurbished bathroom with bath and walk in shower. Everything was immaculate and furnished with an eclectic mix of decoration and ornaments. The breakfasts were excellent with lots of choice and we were able to choose exactly when we ate. The house is central and you can walk to most of the attractions very easily. Werner the host was warm, welcoming and very interesting and made our stay complete. We Cannot recommend Villa Nicola highly enough.
Already home but my husband and I are still raving about our stay. Werner's love for this home shines through in every inch of the place, and the way he makes his guests feel welcome. No breakfast time is too early or too late. Hearty laughs around the breakfast table before we start our day. Exceptional (and value for money) resto recommendations from Werner. Perfect location - close to the museums, the canals, public transportation, and a fabulous supermarket. What jet-lag? I have never slept better with the high-end sheets and relaxing toiletries that Werner provides. There are many luxury stays (and you need to pay bajillions for) but THIS! THIS is true value for money and the template of what luxury should look and feel.
This place was recommended to me by a well known cook book author, as a perfect and cosy place to enjoy walking around Amsterdam. For those of us who like our hotels eclectic, chic, and design orientated this is the place for you. Werner the owner couldn't be nicer or more hospitable...and helpful! Romantic and a home away from home with the best amenities and enormous beautiful bathrooms with delicious little perks like lavender bath crystals and heated floor...
