Do your dreams have a soundtrack? Then stay in the Concerto Suite of the Conservatorium Hotel, a beautiful duplex between the music box and the small cathedral. This is a room of 90 square meters, separate rooms and windows worthy of the highest clergy. If you add to this a pleasant spa, massage service and personalized yoga, pilates, taichi and meditation classes, any connoisseur will have already reached the conclusion of how wonderful this place is. Unfortunately, its price is not so wonderful for the average person.
Ollies Boutique Bed & Breakfast
Discreet, elegant and unique. Pure Amsterdamer essence located inside one of those typical buildings of the city. This is the handful of rooms that make up the Ollies Boutique Bed & Breakfast, a beautiful hotel where the homemade breakfast is served religiously every morning. Located in the colourful neighbourhood of Pijp, it is the ideal corner for anyone who wants to enjoy an exclusive and romantic stay without having to pay a quintal.
Even the smallest of the Hotel Okura rooms is spacious and bright. Its large swimming pool is in keeping with the rooms, and it is a real oasis of jacuzzis, saunas and relaxation in the middle of the city. The suites in this place are a whim for body and wallet. Its presidential suite has 150 square meters and offers an incredible panoramic view of the city, since it is located on the 21st floor. Bedroom and dining room are independent, both classically elegant. But if what you’re looking for is something impossible to beat, bet on The Suite, a huge apartment of 485 square meters spread over two floors with its own cinema.
For many, the Amstel Amsterdam is the mother of all hotels in the city. An elegant accommodation that is what the Ritz to Paris or the Sacher to Vienna, in Florian Duijsens’ opinion. An exclusive place with impressive architecture inside and out. Its event rooms take you back in time, in the best sense. A restaurant by the canal and a spa to forget about the world are just two of the details that will make your stay in this place unforgettable. As soon as you pass by this place, you will understand why celebrities such as Audrey Hepburn, Walt Disney or Queen have already chosen it.
The Sofitel Legend The Grand Amsterdam is another of those historical events that the European cream of the crop has been attending for centuries. Opened at the end of the 16th century, this five-star hotel still delights all lovers of fine details. Exquisite services such as carriage rides, in-room butler, and floral boutique are some of the extras you can hire at this select place. It is impossible to get bored of the rooms: there are many and very diverse. The Willem Van Oranje, Maria De Medici, Willem V and Lodwijk Napoleon suites are the jewels in their crown – how many secrets their frescoes won’t shut up!
You don’t have to book a room in a five-star hotel to sleep in luxury. Nor to do it in a good room, well located and with nice decoration. The Van Gogh Hotel is the perfect example of this. In the very heart of Amsterdam, just a stone’s throw from the Vondelpark, is this well-kept and inexpensive accommodation with walls inspired by one of the country’s most famous artists. Among other things, you’ll find private rooms with immaculate bunk beds, large windows and their own bathroom. This is a great option to consider if you are travelling in a group and don’t want to be separated from your friends.
In the art’otel tradition and design are separated by a fine glass. On one side of the Amsterdam window and its characteristic buildings with stepped roofs; on the other side, design rooms distributed in corridors and rooms inhabited by works of art. The art’otel is a hotel, but if you ask it, it will tell you that it has always had a museum vocation. To stay in it is to do so in a place with personality, but also with a sauna, an indoor swimming pool, and an art gallery. Beauty, luxury and art are intertwined in it until the limits between them are erased.
In the past, the Seven One Seven Hotel was one of the sweetest places in Amsterdam because it housed a large sugar mill. It was not until the end of the 20th century that this great house was opened for guests. It was May 1997 and at that time the city’s canal system had not yet been declared a World Heritage Site. However, great artists were already giving their names to the beautiful rooms, Schubert and Picasso being the two best. This place leaves you speechless. Just hang out in their gallery and you’ll soon be speechless.
The beautiful and varied rooms of Hotel Vondel are capable of conquering the most demanding guest. Single, double or triple, with a warm decoration that not infrequently uses exposed wooden beams, will make you feel at home even if you are in the centre of one of the liveliest cities in Europe. Choose the Hotel Vondel and you can enjoy the flower service, bike rental and babysitting without giving up the Rijksmuseum, the Stedelijk Museum and the Van Gogh Museum.
Even the most affordable room at The Toren Hotel exudes strength, passion, character. In all of them you can read luxury between the lines, except in their star rooms where luxury can be clearly read in every corner. The Garden and Royal Suite are two huge dream rooms capable of delighting the most upstanding nobility. Their bar is up to the level of their rooms, to the point of covering their clients with a ceiling painted by artists who learned at the same university as Rembrandt. See what other hotel in Amsterdam can say the same.
