“A four star boutique in Amsterdam's Fashion and Museum District. Welcomed by sensual interiors, the modern guest rooms are spacious and a great base for local exploring. Enjoy the Bar Lounge and the High Tea, a cocktail on the terrace and mouth watering dishes throughout the day. Vibrant and trendy.”

Hotel Review

A late 19th-century school is home to Amsterdam’s latest hip hotel. The name also refers to the fact that it is staffed by students, overseen by an eagle-eyed team of professionals from the excellent Nedstede Group of hotels. Its award-winning design by local architects, F.G. Stijl, is stunning, incorporating the old with the new and the bold: classrooms are now stylish bedrooms, and the gym one of the city’s most talked-about restaurants.

The College Hotel

A training hotel offering good value for money, on the edge of hip De Pijp and just a short stroll from the Concertgebouw and major museums. Hotel students display their skills in a converted century-old former school building. Rooms come in odd shapes and sizes, but are generally spacious and warmly decorated.
