Best for kicking back PESTANA AMSTERDAM


RIVERSIDE Housed in a striking building — formerly Amsterdam’s City Hall — this 154-room hotel overlooks the city’s main river, the Amstel, on the edge of uber-trendy De Pijp. In contrast to the elaborate exterior, the interior is contemporary with occasional flashes of art borrowed from museum depots. Unusually for Amsterdam, the hotel has a good-sized swimming pool and there are excellent spa facilities. Peter Lute, a Dutch celebrity chef, heads up the in-house restaurant. ROOMS: From £120. pestanacollection.com


Best for Sinophiles HOTEL MAI


MAI pulls off the enviable trick of being in the heart of the city, without feeling like it. Formerly a warehouse that stored imported goods from the Far East, this historic Chinatown property is sympathetic to the


neighbourhood’s heritage with frequent use of gold and red, which symbolise wealth and luck in Chinese


culture. A short walk from Rembrandt House Museum, Amsterdam Centraal and the Red Light District, there are plenty of distractions on MAI’s doorstep, too. ROOMS: Doubles from £70. hotelmaiamsterdam.com


Best for futurists YOTEL AMSTERDAM


The reasons to visit Amsterdam Noord become more compelling by the year. The latest hotel to pop up in the old industrial district is the quietly eccentric Yotel. The modular hotel is stacked like LEGO and


its adaptable rooms (beds fold out) are supposedly inspired by business-class cabins, though they’re mercifully much roomier. The hotel is 10 minutes on


foot from A’DAM Tower, the trendy NDSM district and the free ferry to Centraal.


ROOMS: Doubles from £65, room only. yotel.com


Best for nostalgia SWEETS HOTEL


Hiding in plain sight across the capital, Amsterdam’s cosy bridge houses used to be the domain of the


city’s bridge operators, who now work remotely from an office. In their absence, the 28 vacant huts, some of which are suspended above the canals, have been


reborn as the SWEETS Hotel. While drifting off to the sound swooshing barges, guests can contemplate what life was like for the old bridge masters. ROOMS: Doubles from £105, room only. sweetshotel.amsterdam
