Hg2 : The Hedonist

Seven One Seven

Another hotel converted from a grand old Canal Belt merchant’s house, 717 is a whole world of swanky. Part of the building dates to the 17th century (though most is from the early 1800s) and there is a grandeur and old-world charm to the place that immediately feels a little indulgent and relaxing. The décor isn’t overly austere (though there are some exquisite pieces of furniture), and given the prices and the setting, all rooms feel light and colourful (and are all of a good size). It’s in the southern Canal belt, which puts Museumplein a short amble away, along some suitably picturesque canals, and you’re also close to the plusher (and slightly more poseur-ish) bars and shops of P.C. Hooftstraat. There is a garden area (surprisingly quiet given how central the hotel is), which is a grand spot for a decidedly un-hedonistic afternoon tea and feeling part of old school Dutch high society.
