HistoryNH Collection Grand Hotel Krasnapolsky takes its name from its first owner. The hotel was established in 1866 by a Polish tailor Adolf Wilhelm Krasnapolsky who arrived to the Netherlands only 10 years earlier. Krasnapolsky first opened a popular café, added rooms for rent to it and later rebuilt it into a modern hotel. It was the first hotel in Amsterdam to have - at the end of the 19th century - warm water in each of the rooms, equipped with telephones and already in 1883 electricity.
Complex of buildingsFacing the Royal Palace the hotel had such a success, that Krasnapolsky bought 39 small houses in the area to build the biggest 5 star hotel in the Netherlands with 451 rooms, including a Presidential and Royal Suite, 18 Suites, 35 apartments, and Grand Café Krasnapolsky , where guests may enjoy a coffee or tea together with delicious cakes and pastries showcased in a one of a kind 'Cake Room' situated.
Grand Café Krasnapolsky also has a unique Hors d'Oeuvre Counter, where dishes and salads are freshly prepared by the chefs. Marble, black steel and mossy banks determine the sleek decor.
Every morning the breakfast takes place in the famous Winter Garden. Despite its size, it is warm and welcoming.
At cocktail bar The Tailor, Hotel Krasnapolsky pays tribute to the old craft of its founder with tailor-made and bespoke cocktails.
