Just before Christmas I was able to stay in this awesome hotel in Amsterdam on the Museumsquare. This luxurious hotel is one of the trendiest in Amsterdam and opened in 2011 so still fairly new.
The location is awesome. I would always recommend tourists to stay either somewhere on the canals or on the Museumsquare. The hotel is very close to the recently reopened Rijksmuseum, Van Gogh Museum and Stedelijk Museum as well as the Royal Concertgebouw. The hotel is set in a neo gothic very big building that was originally designed by the Dutch architect Daniel Knuttel and has 129 rooms, various restaurants and bars and is styled very tastefully in a contemporary modern fashion by the famous designer Piero Lissoni.
The hotel also has a spa with a delicious pool, sauna and more… Conclusion; should you want to stay in your hotel all day and night when you are visiting Amsterdam, you can. You can eat, drink, shop, relax and exercise within its walls. Obviously, you need to go out and see Amsterdam so go for a swim in the morning, have breakfast, go and explore Amsterdam, come back to the hotel for a high tea and a massage in the afternoon (after a long day walking through our beautiful city)!
