NH Grand Hotel Krasnapolsky

Dam 9, Amsterdam, North Holland, 1012JS, Netherlands

The monumental Krasnapolsky near Dam Square is one of the few places in Amsterdam where you can still inhale a true Belle Époque atmosphere—though the rooms themselves, some freshly renovated, are completely modern in style. The soaringly beautiful Wintertuin (Winter Garden) is now the hotel's breakfast room (also open to nonguests); sitting in this masterpiece of 19th-century allure, under a greenhouse roof and replete with potted palms and Victorian chandeliers, might make you feel like a countess or duke. Later you can sweat out your indulgences in the well-equipped gym. At the time of this writing, renovations of the exterior, lobby, restaurant, and bar are ongoing and expected to be completed by late 2015.

PROS

  • well-situated on Dam Square
  • gorgeous Belle Époque breakfast room
  • near many transportation options

CONS

  • impersonal feel
  • rooms vary greatly in size and decor, so be aware of what you get
