Sophisticated and steeped in history, the new Waldorf Astoria Amsterdam is a must-see for couples visiting this enigmatic city.
Encompassing six original patrician houses from the 17th and 18th centuries and set on one of the city’s grandest canals, World Heritage-listed Herengracht, the hotel is just a stroll from the Hermitage Museum, Opera House and Museum Quarter. After a day spent cycling the city, the resident spa is the perfect place to unwind and the 93 rooms and suites are equally inviting with elegant decor, historic ceiling beams and spectacular views of the canal and courtyard gardens.We love the romantic Van Loon suite – 101sqm representing the original Neo-Renaissance style of the building (but with all the modern five-star accoutrements) and an expansive bathroom with a private entrance to the pool and spa. There is a wealth of dining on your doorstep but don’t miss the in-house restaurant and sumptuous Vault Bar – perfect for a sneaky nightcap.
Couples will love: the rich history and fab location. You can even arrive in style – by boat.
