Dikker and Thijs Fenice

Prinsengracht 444, Amsterdam, North Holland, 1017KE, Netherlands

"Classical" and "cozy" are apt descriptions for this 1895 landmark with a regal address on the Prinsengracht and spacious, gracious Art Deco rooms, some of which retain gables, beams, skylights, and other stunning details. The busy location—happily all the majestic windows are double-glazed—is convenient to the major shopping areas and one block from nightlife-rich Leidseplein. Thijs, a popular restaurant, adjoins the hotel, a reminder that these premises, first opened as a shop, became renowned for fine dining after one of the partners, H. Thijs, apprenticed with the famous French chef Escoffier.
