OUR REVIEW

THE NEIGHBOURHOOD

Although this is a luxurious hotel, it's in a surprisingly nondescript, heavily residential area on the Amstel canal. That said, it's located in trendy De Pijp, which has a good selection of cafés and restaurants, and there's easy access to central Amsterdam via tram. Rated eateries nearby include Restaurant Floreyn for Dutch dishes and artisan beer brewer Brouwerij Troost for burgers and bar snacks.

By train: the Eurostar goes direct from London St Pancras to Amsterdam Centraal. The hotel is a 20-minute taxi ride from the station. Book trains to Amsterdam.

By plane: direct flights from London and Manchester take around 1 hour 15 minutes. The hotel is a 20-minute drive from Schiphol airport and central station. Parking costs €55 per day. Book flights to Amsterdam.

THE LOOK AND FEEL

The spacious lobby with its soft colours, cream marble polished floor, wood panels and gentle piano music playing to create a calm ambience all exude a Japanese design undercurrent. With kimono-clad waitresses in one restaurant and a garden and spa also with a Japanese feel, you could almost be in Tokyo.

THE FACILITIES

Service, though efficient, can be rather stuffy. However, this is overshadowed by a wealth of amenities including two bars, four impressive restaurants, a ballroom, gift shop, indoor pool, fitness centre and a spa.
