Calling this 1902 assemblage of turrets, gables, stained-glass, and a clock tower home for even a day or two is a pleasure, and guest rooms are sizable, bright, and furnished in a modern Art Deco style. All have views of the Stadhouderskade canal or a bustling square—the latter option come with small balconies. Newlyweds might want to indulge in the Mata Hari Honeymoon Suite, which is named after the spy fatale who celebrated her wedding here. Nightlife, dining, sightseeing,
and shopping are near at hand, and the hotel's own boat landing is handy for excursions.
