“Andaz Amsterdam Prinsengracht hotel is now open.
Amsterdam distinguishes itself by its rich, versatile and free character. In the heart of this fascinating melting pot of various lifestyles, customs, traditions and heritage, the new Andaz Amsterdam Prinsengracht Hotel is opening its doors.
Surrounded by the unique cultural scene and spirit of the lively Jordaan district as well as the city’s major attractions, the 122-room hotel offers not merely a place to come home and relax, but a place that will energise and inspire you. Welcome to your Andaz!
The Andaz experience begins the moment you arrive through the doors of our hotel and discover the world behind the façade of the former Public Library on the Prinsengracht – Prince Canal.
Here you will be greeted by one of our Andaz hosts and invited to have a drink in the lounge while checking in via handheld tablet, or simply en-route to your artistically inspired, stylish hotel room. Arrival is at your pace, in your style.
Inside Andaz Amsterdam Prinsengracht the unique flavours of Amsterdam are embedded in each of its walls and the journey to this city will be more than simply a visit.
It will be your personalised experience, enabling you to arrive as a tourist and leave as a local.
Explore the various sights, sounds and tastes of Amsterdam through the adventurous design of our hotel, brought to life through the vision of local architect and designer Marcel Wanders.
Reflecting a modern view of Dutch history and local culture, you will delve into a piece of Amsterdam wherever you turn, whether it is the video art on the walls, the books on the shelves, or the food in the restaurant.
Want to go the “local” way? Why not jump on one of our bikes to get around?
True to the brand, Andaz Amsterdam Prinsengracht combines a contemporary and personal approach with attentive and uncomplicated service.
A stay at our hotel is not complete without the unique Andaz amenities, such as the complimentary mini bar, local calls and wireless Internet.
