Hotels in Netherlands
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.
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.
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.
Boutique hotels and canal houses
We are delighted to announce that we are going to start recommending hotels in the Netherlands once again. We’ve started by listing our favourites in Amsterdam, and with recommendations for the rest of the country to follow.
We hope readers will nominate their favourites so that we can gradually build up the numbers again.
That is the way the Good Hotel Guide began 33 years ago when Hilary Rubinstein, a literary agent, asked all his friends to nominate their favourite hotel.
Please do help us get this exciting project off the ground. The more help and feedback we get from you our readers, the more reliable and comprehensive our selection of Dutch hotels will be.
