Andaz Amsterdam Prinsengracht

City-center lodgings with whimsical design

Don’t let the brown brick exterior of the hotel fool you. Once you step inside Andaz Amsterdam Prinsengracht, you will be dazzled by a captivating combination of trendy design, titillating visual art and sheer luxury.

Located in the heart of Amsterdam, the boutique hotel is surrounded by the city’s iconic canals, and adjacent to both the Jordaan district and the famous Nine Streets, where you’ll find a wide array of art galleries and trendy fashion shops to peruse.

Word-renowned Dutch designer Marcel Wanders fully embraced the building’s past as Amsterdam’s public library, creating a sumptuous space where you can find storytelling magic around every corner. Keep an eye out for the many Alice in Wonderlandreferences.

After a day exploring such a lively city, you’ll no doubt want to return one of the Andaz Amsterdam’s 122 pet-friendly accommodations, but you’d be remiss not to grab a bite at the hotel’s playful fine-dining establishment, Bluespoon Restaurant, or unwind with an Alice in Wonderland-inspired cocktail at Bluespoon Bar.

The Rooms

  • Andaz Amsterdam Prinsengracht’s 122 rooms were imagined by acclaimed designer Wanders. Each features Dutch décor with a wink as well as an open-plan concept that makes the most of the cozy space.
  • The accommodations have a blue-and-white color scheme that enhances the airy effect of the natural light flooding in from floor-to-ceiling windows. Pops of yellow, such as the modern wingback chair found in most rooms, add a bold contrast to the otherwise serene surroundings.
  • To enjoy a private terrace with garden or canal views, opt for a Deluxe Room.
  • All of the rooms at this Amsterdam hotel feature quirky fish-themed art. You might notice, for example, a giant, ornate bronze spoon with a few fishy details hanging on the wall above your bed.
