Splashing out? Then it has to be either the sprawling Royal suite with its fabulous chandelier and downstairs bathroom or the equally fabulous Garden Cottage (more of a lodge), with its steam room bathroom and sleek contemporary feel. Room 411 (a Special Deluxe) is canal facing and pretty special too.
Eat & Drink
The lounge bar serves some mean cocktails and a range of light bites – served in the garden if you prefer. Dinners can be ordered in from Restaurant Christophe, a Michelin starred eaterie just a few minutes away, although there are plenty of great places to dine within a five minute walk.
Buffet breakfast is served until a lazy 11am. Look forward to Dutch cheeses and hams, muffins, freshest breads and serve-yourself hot dishes.
Available 24 hours.
See & Do
You’re at the heart of the city here, with scores of things to see and do nearby. Anne Frank’s house is just around the corner, while the more louche charms of the red light district lie within a 15 minute walk. Admire the Van Goghs and Rembrandts at the city’s top art museums, or check out the rather more offbeat exhibits in the Hash, Marijuana and Hemp museum.
Go native and hire a bike to pedal around the city, take a cruise along the canals, or linger in one of Amsterdam’s traditional brown cafés with a Pils. In summer, Vondelpark offers a relaxing breather from the city‘s bustle.
While there is no spa, The Toren can arrange passes to a nearby health club at specially discounted rates.
Queen’s Day is one of the biggest dates of the year and the whole city turns orange in celebration. Expect plenty of live music and partying.
Vondelpark plays home to al fresco theatre, dance and cabaret throughout the summer months.
