Hotels in Amsterdam

1
Ambassade Hotel

Ambassade Hotel

Amsterdam

A long-time Guide favourite, 'it has to be one of our favourite hotels in Europe', this hotel is spread among ten 17th-century gabled houses on two of the city’s finest canals (Herengracht and Singel).

Canal House Hotel

Canal House Hotel

Amsterdam

Located in a 17th-century house on the canal in the Bohemian Jordaan district, this glamorous, contemporary hotel reopened in 2010 after a full-scale renovation, under the new ownership of Jessica and Peter Frankopan.

Hotel de l’Europe

Hotel de l’Europe

Amsterdam

The 19th-century building, at the junction of the River Amstel and two canals, may be imposing with grand public rooms, but readers like the ‘happy mix of large hotel of character and ambience that goes with family ownership’.

Hotel Estherea

Hotel Estherea

Amsterdam

Amsterdam does a certain kind of boutique hotel very well: ornate detailing, luxurious fabrics, crystal chandeliers and dim lighting, and Hotel Estherea is no exception.
5
Hotel Toren

Hotel Toren

Amsterdam

Owned and run by Eric and Petra Toren since they took over from Eric’s father in 1991, this opulently-decorated hotel prides itself on its excellent customer service: staff have been praised for being helpful but never intrusive, and the atmosphere here is friendly and relaxed rather than cool and trendy.

Hotel V Nesplein

Hotel V Nesplein

Amsterdam

Set in the city’s theatre district, and an easy walk from Dam Square and the Anne Frank House, this ultra-stylish family-owned hotel opened in 2013 and offers industrial, loft-style rooms, simply furnished with selected vintage furniture and custom-made quality beds.

The Neighbour’s Magnolia Hotel

The Neighbour’s Magnolia Hotel

Amsterdam

Formerly Hotel Zandbergen, The Neighbour's Magnolia Hotel is set in a typical 1900s building on a quiet street in Oud-Zuid, the fashion and museum district of Amsterdam.

Hotel JL No 76

Hotel JL No 76

Amsterdam

This boutique hotel is set in two converted 18th century townhouses - from the outside, it looks non-descript, but on the inside the decor is refreshingly contemporary, with interesting decor touches (wallpaper by the Dutch artist Barbara Broekman, plus unique artworks) that add character without being overwhelming.

Hotel V Frederiksplein

Hotel V Frederiksplein

Amsterdam

Sister hotel to the Hotel V Nesplein, this stylish boutique hotel is spread over several buildings (previously office buildings and apartments). 

Gabled houses, pretty canals and world-class culture

Amsterdam is the fourth most popular destination in Europe for a city break, after Paris, London and Rome, and it’s not hard to see why. It has a village-like charm, just perfect for exploring on foot: gabled 17th century houses line the peaceful canals, and a little exploration will yield charming alleyways and hidden courtyards. It’s compact: nothing is more than ten minutes’ cycle ride away, and it’s cultural: the city’s art, drama and dance offerings are top-notch.

 

At the moment we only list three establishments: the glamorous Canal House Hotel, with its luxe purple interiors; the Hotel de l’Europe, with its grand public rooms and fantastic on-site amenities; and the Ambassade Hotel, a long-time Guide favourite, with its authentic style and modern artworks. While we, and our readers, recommend the above hotels thoroughly, we’d love to add more. Please let us know if your favourite has been left off the list, and send us a review.
