Picturesque Golden Age canals, premier league art, cosy cafés, and liberal urban living combine to make Amsterdam one of Europe’s most vibrant capitals.

Official star rating:
This small-scale canalfront hotel is one of the trendiest places to stay in Amsterdam.
Sleek designer fittings, moody colour schemes and contemporary still lifes and portraits give the 23 bedrooms an indulgent, boudoir feel.
The palatial Great Room, where top-notch breakfasts are served, and a decadent-looking bar with black leather seating, a wall of gilt-edged mirrors and an ornate, stuccoed ceiling, are equally striking.
The location is excellent – this is one of the nicest canals in the city, stocked with canal houses, and waterside cafes and restaurants. Step outside and you’re already charmed.
