Grand Hotel Amrâth Amsterdam

Prins Hendrikkade 108, Amsterdam, North Holland 1011 AK, The Netherlands

Karin Engelbrecht

A stay at the former office of the major Dutch shipping companies ensures quiet luxury in the city center. Glorious from the outside, with stone and brick decoration, the hotel's public spaces and guest quarters retain the distinctive style and warm colors of the Amsterdam School, a Dutch version of Art Nouveau. Original sculptures, wood paneling, and stained-glass art remain in lounges and the lovely breakfast room. The staff is friendly and professional.

YOU SHOULD KNOW While the original features are charming, in places the hotel can come across a bit dark by modern standards.

room

The spacious, high-ceilinged guest rooms retain a lot of original details along with vibrant fabrics inspired by traditional designs, plus modern amenities including complimentary minibars and Nespresso coffee makers.

bathroom

Bathrooms are big and contemporary, with double sinks and soaking tubs (in some), and Rituals bathroom products in lovely scents such as “sweet orange and cedar wood”.

lobby

Small but with plenty of marble, stained glass, wrought-iron and warm wood, it’s a lobby to admire but not linger in.

Book a guided tour with an art historian, who will help explain all the little design details in this National Monument

LOCATION

Getting Around

Centrally located in the Old Center, this hotel offers good access on foot to nearby nightlife hub Nieuwmarkt, Chinatown, and the adjacent Red Light District. Centraal Station, a short stroll away, will take you to the Museum District and other areas of interest.

Restaurants

While the three-story pagoda-style Sea Palace (9-minute walk) seems like a typical tourist trap, it’s actually a great place to grab dim sum and Peking duck. Or, if you’re so inclined, try the green herb-encrusted suckling pig cutlet with pearl barley and prune sauce at Dutch food specialist Greetje (6-minute walk). Michelin-starred seafood restaurant Bridges (13-minute walk) offers views of the oldest canal in Amsterdam and stunning art by revered Dutch CoBrA artist Karel Appel.

Bars

Visit the award-winning 11th-floor SkyLounge (6-minute walk) at nearby DoubleTree Hilton CS for cocktails and views of the IJ-river and Amsterdam gables against the dramatic Dutch skyline. Or if it’s old world charm you’re after, Café de Sluyswacht (10-minute walk) has been around since 1695 when it was a lock keeper’s cottage. Today, it offers pretty views of Oude Schans canal, local beer, and bitterballen (a typical Amsterdam bar snack).
