Buzzing with new hotel openings, exhibitions and great restaurants, attractive Amsterdam is hard to beat for a short break. Head to Amsterdam – the style capital of the Netherlands – for its stunning architecture, laidback vibe and beguiling canals to explore by boat, bicycle or on foot.

Searching for pampered perfection at its best? Unbeatable for its brilliant location and historical elegance, Hotel Waldorf Astoria Amsterdam offers an ultra-exclusive Amsterdam experience. Once wealthy patrician houses built during the Golden Age, Hotel Waldorf Astoria Amsterdam is situated on the UNESCO World Heritage listed Herengracht (canal). Steeped in history and converted with grace, this clutch of six grand canal palaces, each with its own story dating from the 17th or 18th century, is within walking distance from luxury shops, museums and theatres plus our favourite street in Amsterdam, the Utrechtsestraat, is just around the corner. Truly, Waldorf Astoria Amsterdam’s location on one of the city’s most impressive canal banks couldn’t be better.

Opened in May 2014 after an extreme makeover, this hometown pick is a high-end urban hideaway ideal for both business and pleasure. Everywhere you look you’ll realize this is not just another luxury hotel in Amsterdam. What’s their secret? It’s a sublime slice of historical beauty, wellness temple and foodie destination in one for only the happy few. But one word of warning: be prepared to spend. Downstairs, the city’s largest private garden, the indoor pool and the first-class Guerlain Spa serve as a refuge from the busy city. Furthermore, Hotel Waldorf Astoria Amsterdam is a slick operation: they offer exactly the right balance between sincere friendliness and appropriate formality. Since the opening, five-star pampering has been at its core. It’s no wonder that this magnificent marvel in the Dutch capital gets the highest rankings from all the Waldorf luxury hotels worldwide.

From the extraordinary staircase, the shades of Vermeer (famous Dutch painter) blue to the marbled floors, 17th-century ceiling paintings and plasterwork, Waldorf Astoria’s prime period pieces reflecting the true essence of old Amsterdam are outstanding. However, the new influences also shine through the museum perfection of old-world glamour. Think of modern Murano glass lamps & chandeliers, contemporary furniture here and there and stylish staff uniforms by Dutch fashion designer Jan Taminiau. Our favorite detail: the fragrances from the centuries-old Cire Trudon candles specially designed for this architectural monumental masterpiece in the heart of Amsterdam.

Local in history and global in standard, Hotel Waldorf Astoria Amsterdam is home to 93 rooms, lofts and suites oozing timeless elegance. The quiet sanctuaries, either facing the pretty garden or the breath-taking Herengracht canal, range between 28 sqm. and 123 sqm. The GA Group of hotel architects was responsible for the tranquil interiors that reference to Golden Age as well as the canal waters. Smart contemporary elements include writing desks, Espresso machines and 42-inch flat screen TV’s with entertainment systems. Added bonus: there’s also a TV in the bathroom. The bathrooms are like mini-spas stocked with lots of Italian Salvatore Ferragamo bath products for him and her, even a Tuscan Soul Anti-ageing Face Mask. The average travelling kleptomaniac will have a field day with so many divine goodies. If money is no object, book one of Waldorf Astoria Amsterdam’s 4 signature suites. Truly fit for a king, the van Loon Suite (suite nr. 66) boasts a living room and private access to the Guerlain Spa. Fancy lots of space? Check out the fantastic Brentano suite (123m²) with its dining room, living room and study.

Hotel Waldorf Astoria Amsterdam’s attention to foodie detail is exceptional. For memorable culinary delights, go downstairs to the 2 stars Michelin restaurant Librije’s Zusje Amsterdam headed by Executive Chef Sidney Schutte. Facing the gorgeous garden, gastronomic restaurant Librije’s Zusje Amsterdam was awarded two Michelin stars in November 2014, only 7 months after its opening. Just try it. Your tastebuds will thank you! Goldfinch Brasserie is the place to be for all-day dining, while the intimate Vault Bar is the go-to spot for five-star sipping. Need to know: unfortunately, Waldorf Astoria Amsterdam is not allowed to serve drinks or food in the protected garden. There is also a lovely sitting room called Peacock Alley – every Waldorf Astoria has one – facing the dreamy garden where haute high tea is served. But what about breakfast? Choose from the breakfast menu or try lots of tasty options from the buffet. The perfect start of a perfect day in alluring Amsterdam.

In need of some serious pampering? De-stress with a signature facial treatment or sublime massage in the hotel’s luxury Guerlain Spa followed by some relaxation in the steam room plus a plunge in the indoor pool. Stressed CEO’s can try the special spa treatments tailor-made for men, while their suits will be dry-cleaned and prepared for the next important business meetings. Isn’t it fantastic? We thought so! Oh, and the state-of-the-art large gym with garden view finishes things off nicely.

If you were in the hotel, you’d be thrilled!
