Five Top hotels in Amsterdam

1.InterContinental Amstel Amsterdam

This hotel with its historic architecture and mesmerizing river views is among few hotels in Amsterdam presenting such attraction and pleasure as the Amstel. Its glorious design has attracted such respected, important guests as Queen Elizabeth II and Michael Jackson.

The location

It was the city’s first grand hotel, located in a 19th-century building that is isolated on the bank of the river Amstel. Every small part of the Amstel bellows the luxury, from the glimmering marble lobby to the warm, river-level indoor swimming pool. Rooms are large, quiet, and full of luxury things. There is also a spa, sauna, and great restaurant, La Rive.

How to get to the tourist places

The Royal Carré Theatre and Hermitage Amsterdam Museum are in the same neighborhood. It is a 25-35 minute walk to the Van Gough Museum and Ann Frank House. The metro station is just 2 minutes on foot from the hotel and you can also hire a bike, which is by far the most pleasing way to explore Amsterdam.

Double rooms price starts from €360 (£320) per night off-season – not so expensive for such luxury. Before booking check if breakfast is included.

5. The Dylan

This is one of Amsterdam’s coolest boutique hotels behind a 17th century arch and yard on the edge of the Keizersgracht canal.
