Only opened for 19 months, the Waldorf Astoria already became one of the best hotels in Amsterdam! After 2 years of renovating the place, the result is amazing. It is located near the famous Herengracht. Entering the Waldorf Astoria hotel Amsterdam is entering a world full of luxury and attention to details. It truly is a unique canal palace. You are treated as royalty here and the personal service they provide will make a stay at the Waldorf Astoria as an experience rather than another hotel stay! At check-in, guests are asked to choose from 4 different kind of room scents. How cool is that? They will make sure your room smells the way you want, great!
The lounge area is just gorgeous and large. Although, there are ‘only’ 93 rooms at the Waldorf Astoria, the hotels feels grand and ultra luxurious. Marble and fresh flowers everywhere and I love the fact that they kept some original elements throughout the hotel. Occupying seven landmark 17th- and 18th-century buildings, this hotel is grand and you will feel the space… Walking around here feels like walking in a castle and although the hotel was fully booked, we didn’t notice.
All rooms at the Waldorf Astoria Amsterdam are unique and trust me, they are all luxuriously decorated using only the finest fabrics. One of nicest five star hotel rooms I have seen. From the cozy couches to the most comfortable king sized beds, you will feel like home here. The bathrooms have a television as well and feature both tub and separate walk-in shower. Oh, and there’s soft classical music playing when you enter the room, very classy… very Waldorf!
So many things to do here: a full Guerlain (the first in the Benelux!) spa center with direct access to the hotel’s lush garden. The calming tones and elegant décor will make you at ease within seconds. It has 3 treatment rooms where they will take care of you in a very professional way. The stunning indoor swimming pool is a bonus! Of course, there’s a full fitness center and after working out in the fitness or pool, you can relax in several relaxation areas.
The Waldorf Astoria Amsterdam has several dining options. Their signature restaurant Librije’s zusje, located on the lower ground floor, has two Michelin stars and is one of the best restaurants that Amsterdam has to offer. Be sure to enjoy an aperitif at The Vault Bar, a hidden pearl of the Waldorf Astoria Amsterdam in the former safe of this bank-building (the building used to be one of Amsterdam’s most prestige’s bank). And nice to know: great mojito’s! One of the best I have ever had! I thoroughly enjoyed dinner at the Goldfinch Brasserie which is overseen by executive chef Sidney Schutte, the award-winning chef of Librije’s zusje. I appreciated the international cuisine and yummie wines. The four course menu was reasonably priced and the overall quality of the food was outstanding! We had such a great time here! The couches, décor and atmosphere were amazing. Every dish was outstanding! Highly recommended to enjoy dinner here!
The Waldorf Astoria is a ultra luxurious five star hotel, I just can’t say enough good things about this place. I loved it and I am sure you will love it too!
