The hotel is situated in 2 historical houses built in around 1870 and designed by the famous Dutch architect P.J.H. Cuypers, who also designed Amsterdam's central station and the Rijksmuseum (national museum). It is charmingly decorated and centrally located in the vicinity of the city centre. Art-lovers can reach the Stedelijk Museum of modern art, the Van Gogh Museum and the Anne Frank House for around 20 minutes on foot. Those who want to experience the vibrant nightlife of the city will be close to excellent bars, restaurants and shops. Through the bus station and the public transport links, that can be found just 100 metres around the venue, guests can reach any area within minutes. For a truly Dutch experience the hotel offers bicycles for hiring. After a day spent sightseeing there is hardly anything more relaxing then a chilled drink in the onsite bar.
