“Gorgeous boutique type hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013 via mobile

This is a fantastic little boutique-style hotel!

The hotel itself is gorgeous with an 'Alice in Amsterdam' theme running throughout which I personally, absolutely love. It brings a lot of personality to the place!

Check in and out is nice & comfortable, the staff are lovely & can't do enough for you. Anything you need available on request (within reason of course!)

The rooms are not traditional so if that's what you want, don't come here. This is an art focused hotel so lots of quirky features throughout including an odd fish spoon decoration above our bed!

There is no bathroom as such; one room is a toilet, one is a shower (mirrored glass which you can't see in but can see out of so beware!) and the sink and vanity station is next to the bed. There is a chiffon-type curtain that you can pull across to make everything seem a bit more separate.

Snacks & soft drinks are complimentary with spirits in the mini bar at a quite reasonable 35 EUR.

Dinner at the Bluespoon Restaurant is lovely, we had the arabiata which was delicious! Wine ranges from 35 EUR to 70 EUR per bottle. Breakfast is also very nice, however some of the mains seemed a bit heavy (egg with shrimp) for my liking but these are optional.

Location wise, the hotel is right next to the Nine Streets which is full of little boutique shops & restaurants. It is an expensive area. It's a good 20 - 30 minute walk to Dam Square & the Red Light District. You can get a bike taxi from here back to the hotel for 12EUR. Taxi from the airport is 45EUR but transport links are good so get the tram if you're looking to save a bit!

Overall the hotel is amazing but if you're looking for a very central hotel, right in the centre, this probably isn't the hotel for you!

This is a new hotel in Amsterdam open three months and based in the old Amsterdam Library. I stayed one night and was welcomed when checking in with a nice cup of coffee. Free soft drinks and snacks in the rooms is also a nice touch. Also you can have free coffee / cakes any time in the hotel.
The room was a little quirky in design with the sink pedestal beside the bed. The bedroom was also small and quite cluttered. There is free WiFi and breakfast was certainly at a five star standard.
The piping under the pedestal seemed to be linked to a central drainage for at least one other room. When they had a shower the noise in my room was excessive.
The relaxed check-in and check out is exactly that - takes far too long for a business travel on deadlines.
If they could quicken the check-in process and sort out the drainage problem the hotel would be hovering close to 5 star standard.

Room Tip: avoid 410 - noisy drainage issue from at least one other room

Dear baringall,
Thank you for staying with us in January and thank you for your review.
We appreciate the good feedback about the drainage and the check in/check out experience.
Since then we have been able to train the Host to be more assertive to guest needs and be more quick during the check in and check out.
We also addressed the noise issue and were able to see improvements.
Once again, thank you for giving us your feedback and we would be happy to welcome you again soon.

My wife and I spent 3 days here just before Christmas and really enjoyed it. The decor and video art is a lot of fun. The location is a good compromise for city centre and museums and is just along the canal from the Anne Frank house. A nice touch - you can have a free glass of wine and some nibbles in the library before you go out in the evening!

Room Tip: Canal view if possible

Wife and I stayed here in early January. Very enjoyable. Boutique style under the Andaz Brand. Marcel Wanders makes a design statement. We were in Amsterdam with friends and they stayed here as well. Both rooms had unique individual features.
Really enjoyed the location.
Breakfast was fantastic.

Stayed at this hotel as it was my parents 40th wedding anniversary. We had booked a standard double and a canal view double for my parents. The canal view room was stunning and the complimentary prosseco for my parents was a lovely gesture. Our standard double was also a fantastic room with many great design features, a real attention to detail and a very distinct feel. The only downside with a standar room is the lack of a window that looked outside, our windo just looked into the lobby so you couldn't even tell what the weather was like. So would recommend a garden or canal view room. Service was excellent throughout our stay and complimentary wine in the evening was a really nice touch. We have stayed in the Andaz in San Diego and whilst the decor and style is very unique in each one they both had the same high standards of facilities and design. Will definitely stay with Andaz chain again and if we are in Amsterdam will definitely stay here again. A huge thank you to the hotel and staff for making my parents anniversary a very special occasion.

Room Tip: Choose a garden view or canal view if you want a window that actually looks outside but in terms of...

Stayed in a suite over a january weekend in the Andaz and was really impressed by the quality and style of the hotel. They have used a dutch designer to create the decor and feel of the hotel and have succeeded to put together something very special. Rooms are moderen yet comfort styled and my suite included 2 roomss and a very nice bathroom complete with tv. Could not say enough about the staff and the service they provide, fantasic! They have made checkin process a very novel experience, as we did this over a cup of coffee while they sat with me checking me in over wifi on an i pad, very cool. The food at the restaurant was very good and i had a dinner and a lunch at their blue spoon restaurant. Both were very good indeed! My overall stay was excellent and i would recommend the andaz for people with the appropriate budget.

What an amazing one night stay at this trendy hotel located in Prinsengracht in Amsterdam. Efficient and friendly staff. Dinner in restaurant fantastic. Decor based on Alice in Wonderland theme with quirky design ideas everywhere yet still making one feel comfortable and "at home"!
Check in is so efficient ... Great to be offered a complimentary drink/coffee while being checked in seated on a sofa informally on an iPad!
Cannot recommend this hotel enough, trendy, off the wall and welcoming all in one!
Will definitely be back!
