Fodor's Expert Review The Hoxton, Amsterdam

Herengracht 255, 1016 BJ, Netherlands Fodor's Choice

Encompassing five 17th-century canal houses on the Herengracht and Singel canals, fun and vibrant The Hoxton, Amsterdam delivers a coolly sophisticated vibe in a prime spot next to the Nine Streets shopping area. The masculine-looking rooms (think dark wood, copper details, and mid-century-modern furnishings) with ultracomfy beds come in four sizes—Shoebox, Cosy, Roomy, and Biggy—to fit a range of budgets; many feature wonderful canal views and traditional details like beamed ceilings that lend elegance to the contemporary feel. The large lobby/lounge area, outfitted with brown leather couches, cushy chairs, and communal tables, invites both working on a laptop or lingering over a cocktail from the inviting bar, and when hunger strikes, casual in-house restaurant Lotti's serves internationally inspired brasserie-style dishes for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
