Why we choose Andaz Amsterdam Prinsengracht

The contemporary Andaz Amsterdam is vibrant and relaxed, with attentive but unscripted service

  • Nosh away with your free (non-alcoholic) mini bar
  • The video art collection comprises 40 works from emerging and established artists
  • The hotel’s superb location on the canal ring, right in the historic and vibrant heart of Amsterdam, puts Amsterdam at your fingertips

There’s an intentionally artistic feeling here that the hotel is rightfully proud of. Everything from the astounding—and highly original—collection of video art to the shelved books is designed to foster new ideas and nurture creative spirits. The Andaz Amsterdam’s target guest seems to be well-heeled Bohemians, which is fitting considering its façade is a former public library. The décor also has educational value intended to turn tourists into instant locals.

What you need to know about the hotel

Local culture, history and character are built into every detail of the hotel

  • Instead of a traditional reception desk, an Andaz Host welcomes you with iPads to check in and out
  • The top-floor Prinsengracht Suite includes an impressive 33-square-meter roof terrace, as well as a beautiful oversized bathroom that spoils guests with Marcel Wanders’ famous design ‘the soapbath’ for Bisazza, a huge walk-in rainfall shower, double sinks, bathroom LCD mirror TV and a wide range of natural toiletries
  • Diners at the Bluespoon Restaurant chef’s table might be lucky enough to eat on one of 200 limited edition plates designed exclusively for the hotel for special occasions

The brand new Andaz Amsterdam Prinsengracht is a modern hotel that, like others in its brand, offers lots of free extras (mini bar, wireless Internet, etc.). But what we appreciate even more is the sense of place created by renowned Dutch designer and architect Marcel Wanders, who incorporates local history throughout the hotel in a fresh, interesting way. The 122 rooms, which continue this eye-catching local emphasis, are fairly small at the lower levels. Our recommendation: upgrade.

In addition to the Spa—with a Bisazza tile mosaic on the floor—the amenities include Bluespoon Restaurant, which faces a landscaped garden and specializes in rustic seasonally-inspired cuisine. The open kitchen gives you a show with your dinner.

Where is it and what's nearby

The hotel is situated in the lively Jordaan district and ringed by the city’s major attractions

  • The Nine Streets neighborhood is a cultural bonanza, with galleries, specialty shops, boutiques and hip restaurants catering to free-spirited locals and tourists
  • At night, hit the city’s main nightlife and cultural square, the Leidseplein, for legendary concert halls and city theatres
  • Amsterdam’s most famous museums—the Rijksmuseum, Van Gogh Museum, Stedelijk Museum and Hermitage—are around the corner from the hotel

Andaz Amsterdam Prinsengracht occupies the address of a former public library on the Prinsengracht – Prince Canal, part of the canal ring added to the UNESCO World Heritage List in 2010. This locale in the historical heart of the city is a great launching pad from which to explore Amsterdam’s diverse offerings, from ancient art to the latest fashions. Whether you’re more into the world-class museums or the Red Light District, you can’t go wrong with the Andaz’ prime location. 

How to enjoy Amsterdam

This flat land of windmills, waterways and waterworks is made for cycling. Everyone’s at it, from grandmothers with handlebar baskets stuffed with bread and flowers, to speedy youths clad in figure-hugging orange Lycra

  • Visit The Tuschinski Theater in Amsterdam; one of the most beautiful movie theaters in the world it features marble, stained glass and an ornate facade
  • The impressive Oosterscheldekering storm barrier off the northern coast is just one of the ways the Netherlands protects itself from flooding
  • The Hague is packed with stunning architecture from the spires of the Peace Palace to the lovely parliament building Het Binnenhof

In the country’s capital Amsterdam, do as the locals, hop on a bike and roam the quaint canal side lanes. Discover the 9 Straatjes, nine little streets packed with small and exclusive boutiques selling everything from antiques and curios to handbags and jewelry. For a hauntingly moving journey into Amsterdam’s history, visit the Anne Frank House where the Jewish teenager hid with her family and another in a secret annex during the Second World War, only to be betrayed and killed months before the war’s end.

No visit to Amsterdam would be complete without some exposure to art. The world-renowned Rijksmuseum has an impressive collection of Dutch masters and the Van Gogh Museum houses the world’s largest collection of works by Vincent Van Gogh, including Sunflowers and Self-Portrait with Felt Hat. Head out of town in springtime to catch sight of spectacular flower fields. Some of the best can be found behind the dunes between the cities of Leiden and Den Helder.
