While the exterior of this luxury hotel is quite unassuming as it blends in seamlessly with the remainder of the neighborhood, don't be misled. The Andaz Amsterdam, found in the city's Jordaan district, is hip and classy with contemporary furnishings and friendly staff. This 122-room hotel is steps away from Amsterdam's famous Nine Streets, along with the Anne Frank house, Van Gogh Museum, and countless bars and cafes.
What makes this particular Andaz hotel unique would be the stories hidden inside the types of the area itself. Nicknamed “Wandazland,” Dutch designer Marcel Wanders has established a global based from the popular Alice in Wonderland. Unique half fish-half object fixtures present in each one of the rooms have been demonstrated to represent “the open minds and flexibility of Amsterdammers.” Wanders draws on the theme of “connecting polarities” throughout the Andaz Amsterdam, “stitching together two non-related elements to create a new logical whole,” based on the hotel's website.
This Andaz location also includes a 24-hour gym, foreign exchange, silent garden, and bicycles for guests to rent. Guests can also decide to relax for a bit within the hotel's library or the whimsical lounge space. Hungry? The Bluespoon Restaurant has your back with local produce and family-style dining. Quench your thirst at the Bluespoon Bar, open until 1 AM every day (2 AM on Fridays and Saturdays). If you are seeking a good deal, the Andaz Amsterdam is offering guests a free night when booking a minimum of three nights (valid through 2020 in low season and upon availability only).
Guests of Andaz hotels will also be welcomed with free internet, sodas, and snacks.
