Adjacent to the oldest canal in Amsterdam, this hotel right in the heart of the city centre offers unbridled luxury against an historic backdrop, the building having been everything from a monastery to Amsterdam's City Hall since it was built in 1587. Hotel guests can choose between a fine dining and a casual restaurant, several bar areas, a luxurious gym and a state-of-the-art fitness centre. It has bright and spacious guest rooms with five-star amenities including Nespresso machines, large flatscreen TVs and 24-hour room service. From entering via a courtyard just off the canalside, coupled with its secluded garden and quiet lounges, it is a welcome retreat from the hectic city.



The hotel, tucked away past a courtyard, feels tranquil, yet the excitement of the city is just metres away.

Surrounded by beautiful canals and historic buildings, you barely notice this city centre hotel borders the famous Red Light District.
By plane: flights from London to Schiphol take 1 hour and 5 minutes, 1 hour 15 minutes from Bristol and 1 hour 20 minutes from Manchester. The hotel is a 20-minute drive from the airport. Parking costs €80 per day.

Style & Character

The hotel attracts all ages, whether for business or leisure, and families too. The Art-Deco wedding chamber has beautiful wall paintings and stained glass. It was designed by artist Chris LeBeau, who completed the room in 1926.

Service & Facilities

We loved the attractive evergreen courtyard garden; a tranquil haven away from the bustle of the city.
