The Hoxton, Amsterdam
If you love the anti-hotel vibe of the original Hoxton in East London, with its trendy home comforts and relaxed yet chic décor, then the latest addition to the Hox family – found canalside in Amsterdam – is sure to please. Opened in July 2015, The Hoxton, Amsterdam has already become the style-conscious traveller’s place to rest their head, as well as somewhere for gourmands to dine.
Flanked by the canal – allowing for superb views – The Hoxton has 111 guestrooms with original canal house features, such as the high ceilings and exposed beams, ranging from the bijou ‘Shoebox’ option to the grand Concept Rooms; those who love a good bath should check out the room named ‘Tubby’, which has its own claw foot tub. But no matter which room you choose, the familiar Hox amenities, like free WiFi and a ‘Rip Off Free Fridge’ – to be stocked with nibbles of your choice from their on-site, high street-priced grocery store – are yours to enjoy.
The Hoxton’s restaurant, Lotti’s, is filled with contemporary, mismatched furnishings set against exposed brick and sweeping spiral staircases, while serving up elegant, no-nonsense Italian cuisine with a soupçon of delicious Dutch influences. It’s the perfect spot to unwind after a day spent exploring Amsterdam.
