A luxury stay at a five-star hotel on the Amstel river, housed in a historic national monument, in one of Amsterdam’s trendiest neighbourhoods - includes spa and gym access

Opening its doors for the first time in January 2018, the swish new Pestana Amsterdam Riverside is the perfect choice for those seeking to combine a city break with five-star luxury. Housed in an elegant neo-Renaissance building that once played host to Amsterdam’s Town Hall, and later the city archives, this classy hotel has a somewhat timeless feel, with an effortlessly cool modern decor crafted by acclaimed Dutch designer Paul Linse that embraces the original features of this historic structure. High-end facilities include a blissful spa, complete with indoor pool, two types of sauna and a state-of-the-art fitness centre; plus an innovative restaurant where you can enjoy creative dishes indoors or on the garden patio.

Located in De Pijp, the city’s multicultural Latin Quarter, you’ll be a stone’s throw away from charming canals, vibrant markets and fantastic shopping along majestic Van Baerlestraat. World-class museums in the vicinity include those dedicated to Van Gogh, Rembrandt and Anne Frank, while beer lovers won’t want to miss a trip to the nearby Heineken Experience. If you don’t feel like sightseeing on foot, bike hire is the way of the locals. Explore the city’s gorgeous green spaces, including the natural wonderland that is Vondelpark, on two wheels.

Please note that a 6% city tax is payable directly to the hotel per person, per night, upon check-out.
