The only exception is phone calls. The recent renovation of this hotel also means that it is now one of the finest first class properties in Amsterdam.

Hotel Details


The lobby, like the rest of the hotel, was completely renovated in 2004 and is reminiscent of the art deco era, the period in which the hotel was actually built. It has stained glass windows, wooden floors and an attractive wooden reception desk. Extending from the lobby is the lounge area, which has ample seating on multicoloured furniture, a feature fire place, a complimentary bar and an Internet corner.


It is an old building, recently cleaned and protected as one of Amsterdam's monuments.


The bedrooms were completely renovated in 2004 and are now all-inclusive, meaning that mini-bar drinks, cable TV and films are all complimentary. The bedrooms are in very good condition and are decorated in a faux art-deco style, with wooden furniture, plasma television and surround sound, burgundy curtains, a black armchair and foot stool and an art deco wardrobe. The bathrooms have also been completely renovated and are also in very good condition with black and white tiling and a power shower with extra large shower head in every room.


The hotel does not have a restaurant due to the numerous restaurants surrounding the hotel However, there is a breakfast room on the lower ground floor. This was also completely renovated in 2004 and now has a black and white tiled floor. There is some seating available on a yellow banquette and a breakfast buffet is served on an imitation Aga cooker. The wooden dressers and the Aga give a cosy and homey atmosphere, and some items are cooked on the spot e.g. pancakes, waffles etc. There is also a large table adorned with magazines and sightseeing leaflets.
