Slide down the rabbit hole into this funky Lewis Carroll-inspired boutique hotel, a former library situated on one of Amsterdam’s most picturesque canals.
Dutch designer Marcel Wanders has created surreal yet stylish interiors with quirky touches like tall tulip-shaped chairs, chandeliers that resemble bells and bizarre murals of fish heads and spoons above your bed representing connected polarities and the barrier-free nature of Amsterdam that the hotel celebrates. There are also more than 50 pieces of video art spread around the hotel, and a spectacular lobby designed to resemble the cosmos.
The Andaz enjoys a fantastic location in the upmarket Jordaan district, overlooking the UNESCO-listed Canal Rings, and you’re within easy walking or cycling distance of all the main sights. With an excellent restaurant, a stylish spa and fantastically friendly staff, this has to be one of the best boutique options in Amsterdam.
Includes return economy flights. Two people sharing a room for 3 nights, departing in December 2018. Contact us for your specific requirements. From price for guidance only, all subject to availability.
- Funky Lewis Carroll-inspired boutique hotel
- Located in the Jordaan district overlooking the UNESCO-listed Canal Rings
- Short strolling distance from the city's main LGBT nightlife and entertainment

The Andaz is located on the pretty Prinsengracht canal, on the edge of the swanky Jordaan neighbourhood. Anne Frank’s House, the Royal Palace and the colourful flower market are all less than 15 minutes’ walk away, and you have the vintage and designer shopping of the 9 Straatjes (9 Streets) right on your doorstep.
It’s about a 20-minute walk to the green space of the Vondelpark and the nearby Museumplein, where art lovers can enjoy the Van Gogh Museum, the Stedelijk Museum and the recently renovated Rijksmuseum.
The location is also ideal for LGBT travellers, a short stroll away from the nightlife of Reguliersdwarsstraat, and the hotel is on the Gay Pride canal parade route. The Andaz is also just a 10-minute walk from the Homomonument, a poignant tribute to all those who have been persecuted over the years because of their homosexuality.
Contemporary design meets off-the-wall art in each of the hotel’s 122 eye-catching rooms and suites. All rooms have an LCD TV, WiFi, iPod dock, Geneva sound system, mini bar and safe, and some also have a Nespresso machine. Choose between views of the hotel lobby, the gardens or the canal, with some rooms opening onto a private terrace.
The serene and stylishly appointed spa offers a range of rejuvenating treatments using products by June Jacobs and REN, and there is also a sauna and fitness centre, with personal training and personal yoga classes available on request.
Fresh local produce and a seasonally-inspired menu are key to the philosophy of the delightful Bluespoon restaurant, which also offers an intimate ‘Chef’s Table’ experience for up to 10 guests, where the head chef will prepare your meal in front of you. The speakeasy-style bar offers up an excellent range of hand-crafted cocktails, along with snacks and afternoon tea. There is also an evening wine hour in the library each day.
