This award-winning boutique hotel seems like an effortless blend of comfortable study-chic and contemporary sumptuousness and this beautifully reflects the Quartier Latin of Amsterdam, where the literati: artists, writers, designers and entrepreneurs, flock to make their names and their fortunes.

Amsterdam has something to offer all types of travellers. Honeymooners needing nothing more than each other's company can stroll hand in hand, enjoying museums, great art works, and tranquil canal side views; artists can soak in the atmosphere and works of the masters and bachelor parties and hen dos can make the most of the city's vibrant night life at clubs and pubs that can be found dotted throughout.
From sumptuous five-star luxury to three-star comfort and style, our hotels have a little bit of something for everyone. You can stay in the heart of thriving Amsterdam, find a hidden treasure in a quiet avenue nearby or escape to the outer quarters for a more peaceful, less hectic vibe.
With all those canals, you might want to ensure that you have spare clothing in case you fall in or get splashed – or even for if it rains! Rainfall can occur at any time of the year, so be prepared at all times. Avoid roller bags, if you can, as the cobbled streets are neither kind nor comfortable to these suitcases. Most people use backpacks and day-bags, packing and travelling light with an easily washed core wardrobe that can then be teamed with a smart jacket, raincoat or winter jacket, as the weather demands. Cycle friendly clothing is a good idea, as cycling is a fun and easy way to get around: one adopted by much of the population.
The Netherlands is part of the EU, so you can easily drive, train or bus your way across the continent – even from the UK at present – to arrive in Amsterdam without too much stress. It is a port city, so you can also arrive by ferry or cruise ship, if you want to come by water. Most international arrivals will come via Schipol International Airport, which accepts flights from all over the world.
