Amsterdam four-star hotels

Hotel Ambassade
Ten historic houses were joined to create the Ambassade, where the decorating scheme runs to antique furniture and chandeliers.

Hotel AMS Beethoven
This Best Western affiliate has reasonable rates and a location near the RAI Centre and the World Trade Centre, making it handy for conventions. The hotel is served by KLM's Schiphol Airport shuttle.

AMS Hofpark Résidence
The large executive rooms have kitchenettes at this stylish modern hotel near the Vondelpark. Suites, including a deluxe penthouse suite, are available.

Hotel AMS Toro
Two turn-of-the-20th-Century mansions have been converted into a 22-room boutique hotel with a garden terrace overlooking the Vondelpark. The lounge and breakfast room are furnished with antiques.

Hotel Amsterdam
The Amsterdam was built in 1911 on the Damrak, the city's main tourist thoroughfare. It's near the Dam Square, and you can easily reach the hotel on foot or via tram from Centraal Station.

Hotel Die Port Van Cleve
This first-class hotel occupies an 18th Century building behind the Royal Palace on the Dam Square. It was completely renovated in 1997 and offers 120 rooms and suites.

Hotel Estheréa
Three generations of the same family have run the Estheréa since it began as a 12-room inn in 1942. Today, the hotel offers 70 rooms in six connected houses that face the Singel Canal and the Spuistraat. The Estheréa has free coffee and tea in the lounge, books for guests to borrow, and amenities for children.

Inntel Amsterdam Centre
This modern hotel near the Central Station is convenient to shopping and tourist attractions. Some of the 236 rooms are equipped for handicapped guests or reserved for non-smokers. Secure parking is available nearby with a 25% discount for Inntel guests.

Note: The Inntel Amsterdam Centre shouldn't be confused with the Inntel Zaandam, which is on the way to the popular Zaanse Schans outdoor museum with its 19th Century windmills and workshops.

Memphis Hotel
The Memphis, a Dutch outpost of Ireland's Gresham chain, has 74 rooms (some of them non-smoking) behind its ivy-covered façade. It's located between the Amstel Canal and the Vondelpark.

Hotel Park Place Victoria
The dowager queen of Amsterdam's four-star hotels is centrally located on the Damrak, with double-glazed windows to block street and tram noise from its 305 air-conditioned rooms. The railroad station and canal excursion boats are opposite the hotel, which was built in 1905.  (See the lobby photo at the top of this page).

Sir Albert Hotel
The Sir Albert is a boutique "design hotel" next to the Museumkwartier, about 600 meters from the Rijsmuseum, the Van Gogh Museum, and the Diamond Museum. Rates include Wi-Fi, and you can borrow an iPad from the desk.

Hotel Vondel
The Vondel has 73 rooms on three floors. Its attractive building is near the Vondelpark, within easy walking distance of the Film Museum and the Rijksmuseum. The railroad station is 3 km (2 miles) away.
