Fodor's Expert Review Sir Adam

Overhoeksplein 7, Amsterdam, North Holland, 1031KS, Netherlands

This industrial-chic hotel on eight floors of the historic A'DAM Tower building, just a three-minute walk from the ferry station, boasts floor-to-ceiling windows with views of the IJ River and EYE Film Institute next door, as well as a unique music theme throughout the hotel. Ultracool rooms, a bit on the small side, take the music theme to the next level: each room includes a guitar or DJ set and a Crosley record player as well as music-themed art. Guests also get a selection of records in their rooms upon arrival, and can choose their favorites from the collection in the lobby. Sir Adam attracts young (and young-at-heart) guests who want to see and be seen in the open lobby/co-working space, which includes not only a branch of THE BUTCHER Social Club (specializing in burgers), but also a pool table, video-game machines, and bar.
