We stayed here for 5 nights in November and had a lovely time. The hotel staff were very friendly, the room very clean and it was in a great location. We didn't try the breakfast here but did dine in the restaurant and it was superb. Would definitely recommend if you wanted an upmarket hotel to stay in.

The Waldorf Astoria Amsterdam is a boutique style hotel located in the center of the city. Most things are walkable from here. It is located on a quiet canal street. Rooms are very nice, the public areas are nice, and the service is attentive in all aspects. The restaurant is two star Michelin for dinner. The breakfasts are credible, but...

Loved his grand hotel. Very quiet escape in the heart of Amsterdam. The location, service and cleanliness of this hotel really set it apart. First class all the way . Make sure to have a cocktail in the Vault Bar, you will amazed at what the mixologists can whip up.

Neighborhood Profile
Canal Ring (Grachtengordel)
This UNESCO World Heritage Site is as historically significant as it is perennially popular. Whether you’re a history buff, architecture enthusiast, shutterbug, or fashionista, odds are you’ll find the Amsterdam you're looking for while roaming around the Grachtengordel (Canal Ring). A brilliant place to get lost in a moody meander and a key component to any sightseeing trip to Amsterdam, this area's major draws include the Anne Frank House, the Bloemenmarkt floating flower market, an enviable assortment of independent boutiques along De Negen Straatjes, and of course all of Grachtengordel’s lovely canals and bridges.
