Magnificent historical buildings and eye-popping views make a stay in one of Amsterdam's best hotels a memorable experience. And that’s before you consider the luxe interiors and sometimes quirky extras.

Hotel de l’Europe. Overlooking the River Amstel, Hotel de l’Europe blends classic design—the building dates from 1896—with contemporary amenities in its 111 guestrooms and 42 suites. The recently opened Dutch Masters wing features replicas of paintings found in the Rijksmuseum, Coco-Mat beds and Arabesco-Carrara marble bathrooms.

The Dylan. Reached through a courtyard on Keizergracht, this boutique luxury hotel offers 40 rooms and suites each with a different color palette, a secluded inner garden—famed for its High Wine concept, a cheeky alcoholic take on an English high tea—and the Michelin-starred Vinkeles restaurant.

Hotel Pulitzer. Overlooking the beautiful Prinsengracht on one side and Keizersgracht on the other, Hotel Pulitzer extends across 25 restored 17th and 18th-century canal houses. The hotel's 250 rooms combine historic details and plush decor with modern comforts.

Andaz. Under the watchful—and style-savvy—eye of Dutch starchitect Marcel Wanders, the Amsterdam outpost of Hyatt’s Andaz brand opened in the former Public Library on Prinsengracht in 2012. Comprising 122 rooms, Andaz emphasizes ease and personalization, from check-in via handheld tablet and a complimentary mini bar, to bicycle rental for urban exploring.
