Conservatorium Hotel

Conservatorium Hotel Rating: 5.0 Pearls

The Conservatorium Hotel delivers a true five-pearl experience in Amsterdam's residential Museum Quarter. It's housed in a 100-year-old former bank building, and the hotel's warm, modern design melds seamlessly with the structure; the stunning atrium lobby, for example, is industrial-chic, featuring wood, brick, and glass. The rooms are decorated in earthy neutrals and every detail was considered, from the placement of the electrical outlets to the reading lights by the bed to the high-tech controls for the lighting and blinds; some rooms have duplex layouts and exposed structural beams. Bathrooms are gorgeous, with rainfall showerheads, stone tile, LCD mirror TVs and micro cotton towels. The big, modern fitness center, stylish indoor pool, and lovely spa, all located below ground, are highlights. It's a premier choice for luxury travelers looking to trade a central location for added space and quiet.
NH Grand Hotel Krasnapolsky

NH Grand Hotel Krasnapolsky Rating: 4.5 Pearls

The 468-room NH Grand Hotel Krasnapolsky is the largest five-star hotel in Benelux, nicknamed the "village on the Dam" because it sits on Dam Square in the historical city center. The building was built in 1866, and the fantastic Winter Garden atrium, where breakfast is served, harkens back to that time, like a World’s Fair exhibition. With the Red Light District within a five-minute walk, the Grand Hotel offers a full Amsterdam experience within the radius of a few blocks.
Hotel Estherea

Hotel Estherea Rating: 4.5 Pearls

Hotel Estherea takes a maximalist approach to its interior design, and treads the fine line between plush extravagance and gaudiness with aplomb. The location on the Singel canal is picturesque, and well positioned for exploring Amsterdam's attractions. Rooms couple elaborate decor with old-world tradition, while providing free Wi-Fi and high-end toiletries. A flamboyantly decorated bar is open 24 hours a day, and breakfast is served in a similarly adorned dining room. Hotels this opulent don't come cheap, but prices are competitive for this luxury category. Those looking for more understated luxury should consider the nearby Hotel Pulitzer.
Boutique B&B Kamer01

Boutique B&B Kamer01 Rating: 4.5 Pearls

There's little to find fault with at the Boutique B&B Kamer01. It's set in a beautifully renovated 16th-century Amsterdam townhouse in the heart of the Canal Ring, and serves a five-course champagne breakfast each morning overlooking a picturesque neighborhood scene (it's clear why the Canal Ring is on the Unesco World Heritage List). The three rooms are sumptuously furnished and equipped with DVD libraries and iMacs, while bathrooms come complete with designer toilets and luxury Korres toiletries. While guests can pay a similar price for luxury hotel with much more in the way of facilities, such as the nearby Hotel Pulitzer, many prefer the boutique intimacy and meticulous attention to detail offered here.
Sofitel Legend the Grand Amsterdam

Sofitel Legend the Grand Amsterdam Rating: 4.5 Pearls

The Sofitel is an upscale property in the heart of the Old Center. The building has a rich history; it has been both a 15th century convent and a city hall. The 177 rooms are contemporary and homey (though some are on the small side) and feature Nespresso machines, flat-screen TVs, and wonderful beds. Bathrooms are sleek, and most have walk-in showers. Hotel features include a high-end spa with indoor heated pool, a modern fitness center, and Bridges Restaurant with a canal-side garden terrace for dining al fresco. Room service is on offer 24 hours a day and a kids' program includes baby toiletries and cribs.
Hotel Arena

Hotel Arena Rating: 4.0 Pearls

The 116-room Hotel Arena is an historic landmark, built in 1889 as the Sint Elisabeth orphanage. It has been renovated to preserve many of the cool original architectural elements, including an elaborate Gothic, almost steampunk-looking grand lobby staircase. Unusual for Amsterdam, the Hotel Arena is set back from the street on its own grounds, with large outdoor areas for relaxing and socializing over cocktails and snacks, or, for the kids, jumping on the playground's (in-ground) trampoline.
Hotel Vondel

Hotel Vondel Rating: 4.0 Pearls

The 86-room Hotel Vondel is an upscale boutique, part of a small Dutch chain, located on a narrow street near Vondelpark across from a row of 18th century townhomes. The property, which combines design objects and contemporary lighting with the charm of a historic building, has cozy rooms that highlight the architecture of the structure in the form of slanted walls and exposed beams. There is a stylish restaurant adjacent to the lobby that receives praise from guests, and the hotel itself is situated about a six-minute walk from the Leidseplein, one of the most popular tourist and shopping areas in Amsterdam. Noise is a problem for some in this building, particularly in basement rooms that face the road and have the reception overhead. There is a nice garden with a sitting area and free Wi-Fi.
Hotel De Hallen

Hotel De Hallen Rating: 4.0 Pearls

Set in a former tram depot built in 1902, the 55-room Hotel De Hallen is an upscale boutique hotel that combines a mid-century modern aesthetic with a dose of industrial-chic courtesy of the cavernous interiors of this warehouse-like space. Common spaces are filled with Scandinavian furniture, modern art installations, and an abundance of fresh plants and flowers, and there are plenty of chic lounge areas to relax in, including the lobby bar and the hip Remise47 restaurant. Rooms are comfortable and stylish, though many don't get a lot of natural light as windows overlook interior corridors. Bathrooms, though modern and chic, might pose privacy issues as they have glass doors. Though a bit removed from Amsterdam's city center, this residential area is full of restaurants and cafes and the building itself is also home to the adjoining De Hallen complex, which includes a large food market, movie theater, and a library. For something of a similar nature, but more central location, travelers should consider some of the other properties from the Vondel Hotels chain, such as Hotel Roemer.
The College Hotel

The College Hotel Rating: 4.0 Pearls

The College Hotel is a sensuous, intimate four-pearl option in the Museum Quarter. It is appropriately named -- not only because it is housed in a historic school building, but because most of the staff members are hospitality students in training. Features are few -- there's no fitness center or spa on-site -- but there is a popular Bar & Lounge with a fireplace where afternoon tea is served, as well as a fine dining restaurant. Though the public spaces wow with their sultry sophistication, rooms aren't quite as impressive, with cramped layouts, too few electrical outlets, and mood lighting that many find too dim to be practical. Note that third floor rooms have slanted ceilings -- homey to some, a nuisance to others.
The Toren

The Toren Rating: 4.0 Pearls

This romantic boutique hotel near the Anne Frank House has historical significance: It was once used as a safe house in WWII. The Toren family bought the property in 1968 and expanded it over time to include additional accommodations along the Keizersgracht canal. Today there are 38 rooms and suites ranging from smaller standard size, to more spacious options with jetted tubs and views of the garden or canal. Though each room is unique, they are decorated with the same sophisticated Toren touch combining rich hues, chandeliers, and bold patterns. Some have their own private terrace -- a nice perk for summer evening cocktails. For everyone else, there is a cozy bar on-site, and the hotel is affiliated with Christophe -- an acclaimed restaurant around the corner that delivers directly to guest rooms.
