Amstel Hotel *****
Amsterdam's most prestigious hotel, located directly at the Amstel River
One of the oldest and most dignified hotels in Amsterdam. Traditional service with an accent on luxury. Built in the French renaissance style of the 16th and 17th century. The interior design of this grand hotel resembles that of a gracious home. The bathroom of the royal suite is outstandingly fancy: taps of fourteen-carat gold, the bath fills up in 2 minutes.
The service is highly attentive and the Michelin restaurant, La Rive , serves top-notch international cuisine.
Since its opening in 1867, the Amstel Hotel in Amsterdam has been the most prestigious hotel in town and probably in the whole Netherlands.
Many royal families, pop/rock stars, world-famous divas, and statesmen stayed in the hotel. From the Russian tsar and tsarina to the British queen Elizabeth and King Carlos of Spain.
World leaders like Helmut Schmidt, Willy Brandt, Henry Kissinger and Bill Clinton switched the Royal Suite in turn with businessmen like Donald Trump, Henry Ford and Gianni Agnelli.
Even more impressive is the list of guests from the world of art and entertainment. From Walt Disney, Orson Welles and Marlene Dietrich to Madonna, U2, Brad Pitt and The Rolling Stones.
