I have stayed in this hotel many times, dating from the pre-renovation era to the present. Due to the sheer opulence of the hotel, the amazing staff, and the history (dating back to the 1400's, it used to be City Hall, a convent, and Queen Beatrix was even married there!), a guest can spend hours just roaming the interior. Even... More

Stayed three nights as a family with our five month old son in a luxury room in August. We took the train from the airport and a short taxi ride from the station (c.€10) We arrived around midday and I tried to avail a room upgrade (benefits as an Accor Platinum member). Unfortunately a junior suite was only available for... More

Impressive hotel in every way. Feels great to be here as it should be. Never experienced as attentive service as I had in this hotel. Room was one of the largest I have ever stayed in with many great features. Comfort seems to be at their forefront in designing this hotel. Very we'll done

Warm, comfortable room. Very comfortable bed and pillows. All the small luxuries you expect and many you don't. Staff were helpful and cheerful, concierge desk booked... More

I love old and historical hotels, and this is my favorite so far! It was the City Hall in the 1600s +, and has been transformed into a comfortable and beautiful hotel. The furnishings and decor is elegant and very functional and warm. There were treats at check-in and treats at check-out. The staff is friendly and helpful. It's an... More

This is a LONG overdue of our stay back in June. But what a wonderful hotel. The location is absolutely perfect and is walkable to most areas of Amsterdam yet the hotel is tucked away between a quiet street and canal so it feels worlds away from the bars, restaurants, and coffee shops nearby. Nice retreat from the "madness" than... More
