Official star rating:
This upscale hotel from the trendy Kimpton brand gets top marks for location, just a five-minute walk from Centraal Station and close to the pedestrian shopping district and the major sites around Dam Square.
Though it’s housed in three 17th-century buildings, the property feels cool and contemporary, with chic coffee and cream-hued rooms, featuring classic works by Dutch artists.
An inviting, open-plan lobby features comfy seating areas where guests can enjoy free perks, including an all-day tea station and daily wine happy hour.
It’s also home to Super Lyan, a super-hip, neon-lit cocktail bar from the mastermind behind London’s White Lyan and Dandelyan, serving inventive cocktails in a fun, retro setting.
