This glitzy, amenity-packed five-star is housed in two early 20th-century buildings, set opposite one another on the Spuistraat, just around the corner from the Royal Palace.

The larger, a former telephone exchange, is livelier, with scenesters flocking to the glass-walled W Lounge and rooftop pool and bar for adventurous cocktails and panoramic city views.

The quieter, more refined bank building is home to the gorgeous Michelin-starred brasserie, The Duchess, and the Away spa, situated below ground in the former vaults.

The hotel’s location though is excellent – you’re in the nicest, most picturesque part of the city, inside the Canal Ring.

Please note - we hope to one day have live prices for you, but for now, here are some useful links for you to compare prices...
