By Kimpton De Witt Amsterdam

Nestled in the heart of Amsterdam, Kimpton De Witt is the first choice for a stay in the Dutch capital. At this inner-city bolthole, conveniently located close to Amsterdam Centraal Station, guests can bed down in one of the 274 luxurious rooms, many of which are set within Kimpton De Witt’s 17th-century buildings. Timeless architectural and decorative details, such as original beamed ceilings, bold blues and emerald greens, bring a stylish sense of warmth, with comfortable touches including luxurious Bedscape linen and plush Frette robes.

The three-storey Little House, one of the signature suites, was the childhood home of Dutch playwright PC Hooft. It features a beautifully designed living room, two bedrooms and luxe bathrooms.

For a truly sumptuous stay, guests should head to the sixth-floor signature suite, Penthouse De Witt. It has a fireplace, spiral staircase and large private terrace with jaw-dropping city views.

Guests can also enjoy a daily hosted wine hour, plus American food at Wyers Bar & Restaurant.

Amsterdam is a byword for world-class culture. Just a short stroll from Kimpton De Witt, art lovers can feast their eyes on the cinematic and photographic exhibitions at the FOAM Photography Museum. Also nearby, the Eye Film Museum houses a vast collection of Dutch cinema, avant-garde films and cinematic exhibitions that are a must for film lovers. Gastronomes, meanwhile, should make their way out to Vuurtoreneiland by boat — the small island is home to a chic, light-filled greenhouse that serves superb fare alongside a view of the only lighthouse in the area.

Elsewhere in Amsterdam, guests can uncover a wealth of walkable attractions along charming canals, whether it’s the city’s edgy, contemporary art scene, rich history, hip boutiques and cafes loved by locals, or the vibrant restaurants and nightlife. A must-do in Amsterdam is to pay a visit to Winkel cafe for a slice of apple tart — some say it’s the best in the city. If walking gets too much, the Kimpton De Witt’s stylish bikes make for the ideal way to get around.
