Hotel Okura Amsterdam

A culinary treasure in Amsterdam

Situated in one of the city’s trendiest neighborhoods, De Pijp, Hotel Okura Amsterdam is a haven for fine-dining enthusiasts, boasting not one, but three acclaimed restaurants.

Since its debut in 1971, Hotel Okura has been one of Amsterdam’s leading luxury properties, and it’s not difficult to understand why. Its interiors carry a Japanese-influenced, minimalist look with lots of natural wood. All 300 modern rooms and suites are equipped with state-of-the-art amenities. The Nagomi Spa & Health is just the place to unwind, with an indoor pool, a Japanese stone garden and a high-tech gym.

Five top-notch eateries ensure that every craving will be sated during a stay at this contemporary spot. And if that’s not enough, the 23-story hotel affords panoramic views over charming Amsterdam from almost anywhere on the property.
