© andaz

situated along one of the city’s main canals, the andaz amsterdam is a beacon of contemporary design paired with five-star hospitality. concealed behind a modern façade of black bricks unfolds a marvel created by dutch designer marcel wanders, and one that’s in line with the boutique hotel brand’s aim to provide both leisure and business travelers an exceptional experience with a distinct local flavor. smack in the middle of the scenic canal district with its abundance of upscale boutiques, restaurants, and art galleries, the 122-room property is both a tranquil retreat with all the perks of luxury hospitality, but at the same time very much in touch with the area’s happening buzz. staying in one of the guest rooms at andaz amsterdam comes with a frivolous indoctrination of dutch history through wanders’ evocative design.

meeting the requirements of today’s savvy traveler, the stylish pads provide complimentary snacks, non-alcoholic drinks, local phone calls and wifi. the hotel’s artistic aesthetic extends well across the premises, featuring various facilities with a unique setting. a visually arresting adventure kicks off right upon entering the lobby and the adjacently located andaz bar + lounge where guests and locals mingle over signature cocktails. also on the ground floor, refined palates have found a new place of culinary worship at the bluespoon restaurant + bar where chef julien piguet wows them with farm-to-table dishes. and should the good life be a tad too strenuous, a full-fledged spa is readily available for those in need of pampering, while those who require to break some sweat can check into the state-of-the-art fitness center on the premises. location: prinsengracht 587 [centrum].
