As well as being known for its canals and cycling culture, the capital city of the Netherlands is also a hub of impressive galleries and artists. It seems only fitting that your lodgings should have as much creative charm as Amsterdam does. Discover some of the best – from boutique hotels inspired by iconic creatives to hotel rooms that are works of art in their own right.

Hotel Roemer, an 18th-century townhouse-turned-boutique hotel, considers itself one of Amsterdam’s best kept secrets. It’s just a stone’s throw away from Vondelpark and Leidseplein on Roemer Visscherstraat – a street named after Dutch poet Mister Visscher. Rooms balance heritage and modern amenities. Jacuzzi baths, industrial decor and walk-in waterfall showers are offset with views of traditional Amsterdam architecture and canals, which are best admired from the rooms’ balconies.

The Nhow Amsterdam hotel, designed by leading architect Reinier de Graaf, has both an aesthetically pleasing exterior and interior. The building comprises three glass-fronted cubes, seemingly balanced on one other, ensuring 360-degree views of the city that are best enjoyed from the hotel’s three restaurant terraces. Bedrooms, inspired by the six directions the hotel faces, also offer floor-to-ceiling windows and are complete with Nespresso machines, animal print armchairs and minimalist desks. Travelling with a furry friend? Nhow accepts pets so you can book yourself and your animal companion into one of the six pet palaces.

Every room at Andaz Amsterdam Prinsengracht has a view worth bragging about – whether that’s the city’s waterways or the hotel’s fantastical Secret Garden. The hotel looks out over the Prinsengracht (Prince’s canal) and is just a 10-minute walk from the Anne Frank House. Andaz nods to the building’s literary heritage as the city’s former public library, while art-adorned walls, futuristic standalone baths, Geneva Sound Systems and a morning paper are just a few of the luxuries you’ll encounter in your Marcel-Wanders-designed room.

    Not many hotels would commission over 100 artists and offer them complete creative control – but Amsterdam Teleport Hotel did just that. The hotel organised their first Teleport Art Event with the Amsterdam Street Art platform in 2016, where eight graffiti artists decorated rooms to their individual styles. Today, more than 120 of the 148 rooms have been painted by graffiti and street artists from all over the world – with murals featuring everything from Nintendo’s Mario games to sunny beach getaways.

    The Qbic Hotel, next to the World Trade Center in the financial district, is a creative space you’ll relish staying at during business trips. Forget the muted interiors often found at business hotels. Unique murals, colourful LED lighting and pops of neon furniture decorate the rooms here. In between meetings, opt for one of the tour packages: an Amsterdam bicycle package, canal cruise or an outing to see the art at the Rijksmuseum. Meanwhile, if a grueling schedule means you don’t have the time to enjoy the continental breakfast spread on offer, head to the Grab & Go corner.

The hotel’s restaurant Canvas, fit with a horseshoe bar and roof terrace, is open for breakfast and night caps, while those travelling for business can reside in Werkplaats: the open-planned workspace that’s decked out with plants and industrial decor. Unwind with a choice of spa services, including use of the hot tub and sauna, or opt for a cocktail at its underground sound bar Doka, where a mix of DJs, live bands and cultural experiences take centre stage. Meanwhile, artisanal toiletries, flat-screen TVs and views of the city make it hard to check-out.
