Modern in design located in traditional dutch surroundings, these 'suites' are really more like boutique apartments. Located on the river (with a view) they are just outside of central Amsterdam, which make the the perfect retreat after a busy day in the city. Our evening in the restaurant is what made the trip so memorable. We were invited to sit at the 'chef's table' in the kitchen. We were lucky it was free. I suggest reserving it. (Handsome chef Peter Lute's creations are delicious and he is there to prepare and oversee everything. Each course impossibly better than the next! all paired with the perfect wines)
For breakfast they deliver the "Lute Box" and fresh OJ / Milk. It was like opening a present every morning. Fresh breads, eggs, fruit, cheese.... Yummy.
There is a well stocked wine/soda bar and a kitchenette including a coffee maker, kettel, stove, sink etc.....tucked behind big doors. Very practical. We were in suite 4 which had a shower with double showerheads and wood-slatted floors. Tres cool.
Friendly, clean (and the next level in boutique destinations.)
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Lute Suites is a combination of visionary hotel and restaurant that takes design and cuisine to heights not normally associated with Holland's bucolic hinterlands. Acclaimed Dutch chef Peter Lute has teamed up with star interior designer Marcel Wanders to create an unusual collection of luxury suites overlooking the river Amstel. Transformed from 18th-century workers cottages into bastions of high contemporary design, each suite's look is completely different and has its own character and features surprising details. The obsessive attention to enriching the interior is a reflection of Wanders' goal for the complex: to surprise, to delight, and to elicit a strong emotional response. What LUTE SUITES guests can depend on are modern kitchenettes, a private wine/champagne cabinet, sleek baths and breakfast delivered (on request) to the door. Two multi-functional boardrooms for private dining and stimulating meetings link the suites to the sophisticated French-oriented cuisine of the renowned LUTE restaurant. At LUTE SUITES, guests enjoy complete freedom in a homely environment for short and longer stays. ... more less
