Waldorf Astoria Amsterdam

Hotel Amrâth
Don't let the intimidating exterior put you off, this hotel hides some of the best art deco interiors Amsterdam, all done up with a nautical twist.
Ambassade Hotel
Any hotel that has its own library is already somewhat more sophisticated than others, and this is especially true of the Ambassade Hotel, which has hosted some very literary guests.
Conservatorium Hotel
Stylish design-led modern hotel in the Neo-Gothic splendour of the old Conservatory of Music...
Sir Albert Hotel
Housed within a converted diamond factory, the Sir Albert Hotel retains it's sparkling history, combining it with contemporary luxury and a location to write home about...
Eden Amsterdam American
The chain hotel experience, efficient and smooth, set in the monolithic grandeur of the Hotel American 's art-nouveau confines. Placed well for tourists.
Banks Mansion
A different way of doing hotel packages, this former bank's rates include all sorts of things that are normally charged separately in other hotels, such as in-room movies and a private bar.
Vondel Hotel
Small but perfectly formed and with a garden that is a delightful getaway from the otherwise busy tourist area. A calming influence.
The Park Hotel
The Park Hotel has reinvented itself with a recent refurbishment and is now full of 21st century design, turning itself into a far more welcoming hotel.
The Dylan
Not for no reason is the The Dylan considered one of the most luxurious hotels in the city. Sleep in the decadence of Amsterdam's golden age.
The Convent Hotel
Oddly enough, the Convent Hotel, once the site of some monasteries, it ideally placed for getting up to some nights of hedonistic excess.
The College Hotel
An interesting concept, the College Hotel is run by interns from various hotels schools, but that doesn't detract from its comfortable and contemporary design.
Seven One Seven
Some olde world Dutch charm at Seven One Seven, which is indulgent and swanky in equal measure. An aristocratic but not austere embrace.
Sofitel the Grand
One of the best places to sleep in Amsterdam, with modern luxuries blended seamlessly with a building dating back to the 16th century.
NH Grand Hotel Krasnapolsky
Sharing space with the Amsterdam residence of the Queen of Holland, Krasnapolsky sits in one of the best locations in the city - between the Red Light District and the Canal Belt.
Miauw Suites
Spacious holiday-let apartments that are a step above what you will find in other European cities.
Lloyd Hotel and Cultural Embassy
A hotel that is almost impossible to sum up or catergorise. The rooms go from one to five stars and have been created by the finest minds in Dutch design. Worth finding out what the fuss is all about.
Intercontinental Amstel Hotel
It's telling that the Amstel Hotel is accessible by boat, given the famous names that have stayed there. Simply top of the range.
Hotel V
An explosion of different designs and tastes results in a unique feel at Hotel V. A comfortable stay in a prime location.
Hotel Toro
Stateliness from a different era, the Hotel Toro is an excellent example of 19th century art-nouveau grandeur.
Hotel Roemer
A little different from the other hotels on this list, Roemer is a slick and modern boutique hotel.
Hotel Orlando
With only five rooms in the whole of this hotel, you really do get 'a room of one's own.' Like living in a Dutchman's old-fashioned canal side home.
Hotel Okura
You get what you pay for at Hotel Okura, from views of the street to rooms with their own cinema and meals cooked by a private chef.
Hotel de l’Europe
Walk through the door of the Hotel de l'Europe and walk into the past, with old age opulence and class accented with all the modern conveniences.
Hotel Estherea
Somehow managing to retain the cosy feel of a family run establishment while having the size and amenities of a chain hotel, this hotel has a vintage, luxurious charm.
Hotel Arena
Out of the centre but with enough nearby to explore, Hotel Arena makes up for its location with very reasonable prices.
Fusion Suites
A selection of boutique suites rather than a hotel of the traditional variety. Wonderfully close to Vondelpark and Leidseplein.
De Toren
The perfect place to retreat to for a romantic, sumptuous weekend. Try not to wallow in the included Jacuzzis the entire stay.
CitizenM
A concept hotel, which we think means quirky design and strange features that will make you feel cooler by the minute. Good value for money and with easy links to the city centre.
Chic & Basic Hotel
What more needs to be said? This hotel is both basic, with a laid-back service, and chic, containing rooms with a bit of flair.
Canal House
Called Canal House, Amsterdam's swishest new stay is found in a fashionable district that straddles the city's famed 17th-century canals.
‘t Hotel
Set on one of the prettiest canals in Amsterdam, 't Hotel is the very epitome of comfort and cosiness.
