After exploring several hotels of the Hyatt chain, I was excited to experience the Andaz hotel in Amsterdam. There are only 2 Andaz hotels in Europe, one in Amsterdam and one in London. The Andaz hotel in Amsterdam is an upscale five star hotel with trendy and cozy interiors. The service here is top notch and the staff will do anything to make your stay flawless!
The hotel is decorated and designed in a trendy way. There’s a cool vibe around this place which I liked very much. I loved the fact they filled the hotel full of typical Dutch items such as the Dutch Clumps, etc. By the way, no ordinary check-in here, they make it special. We were offered a drink in the bar and while we were enjoying our drinks, they did all the administration and handed our keys within minutes.
The Andaz Amsterdam is located right at the Prinsengracht which is placed on the UNESCO World Heritage List. We stayed in one of their large deluxe rooms overlooking the Prinsengracht. I do recommend the upgrade, it is worth the money… You will love the views! The large yellow couch was very comfortable and relaxing. It was fun to hang out in this room as there is so much to do around the hotel. The open design bathroom was just gorgeous! There’s a minibar with complimentary soft drinks and some light bites. Other amenities are the Nespresso coffee machine and oversized plush towels. The room had enough space and once again, I appreciated the attention to details. While you are seated on the toilet, you will not get bored… Check it out yourself and you will know what I mean.
On the lower level of the hotel, there’s a (small) spa area with a large sauna, an over-sized shower and relaxation area. There’s a full fitness center as well. It is a great place to hang out after a day full of walking in Amsterdam.
There’s a small lounge area, they call it the Library, where guests can enjoy complimentary wine and light bites from 5pm – 7pm. Always a bonus and great for an aperitif before dinner.
The next morning, we enjoyed a full breakfast downstairs. If is a buffet style breakfast with several cold and hot items. Again, the service was excellent! While I was staying at the Andaz Amsterdam, I had sore throat and the staff was so helpful and kind. They even offered me some complimentary ginger tea and some cough drops. This is what a true five star hotel is about! As mentioned, the Andaz Amsterdam is located right at the Prinsengracht and staying here will make you feel like a local in Amsterdam. I can’t say enough good things about this place! Go check it out yourself!
