Art-tastic design at Andaz Amsterdam Prinsengracht hotel

Luxury-Hotel-Amsterdam-06

Reflecting its energetic and distinctive surroundings, Andaz Amsterdam Prinsengracht has devoted its time to providing highly personalised, uncomplicated service in an atmosphere that authentically embraces the best of Amsterdam.

The luxury Amsterdam hotel’s signature service includes a hassle-free check-in process; an Andaz Host uses a computerised tablet to check you into your room while offering you a complimentary glass of wine in the Andaz Lounge. You can also enjoy complimentary Internet access, local phone calls, non-alcoholic beverages, and locally sourced snacks in the minibar, including the Dutch brands “Just Nuts” and “Lovechock” chocolate.

The 117 room hotel is centrally located in the bustling heart of the city. Surrounded by the creative scene and dynamic spirit of the Jordaan district, as well as the adjacent “Nine Streets,” the hotel is located in a charming neighborhood filled with Amsterdam’s main art galleries, unique specialty shops, trendy fashion boutiques, and stylish restaurants, all of which nourish the city’s free-spirited, rich and diverse cultural character.

Part of the hotel’s overall design concept incorporates a unique video art collection that represents a diversion from “regular” art. The 40 unique works from various emerging and established local and international video artists, such as Ryan Gander, Erwin Olaf and Mark Titchner, make Andaz Amsterdam Prinsengracht the hotel with the largest video art collection in the world. Depending on the work’s level of intensity and outspokenness, selections from the video art collection are showcased in different areas of the hotel — in the public areas of the ground floor, in the hallways throughout the various floors, or through a special video channel available on the televisions in the guestrooms. The largest display screen for the presentation of video footage is located in the Lounge and is comprised of nine 60-inch televisions.

In line with the overall design concept of the luxury Amsterdam hotel, the artistic and stylishly designed rooms reflect a view of Dutch history and feature small custom details to create an inspiring environment. Adelto loves the striking elements such as the hand-painted washbasin in Marcel Wanders’ signature “One Minute Delft Blue” style and unique wallpaper that is visible in both the room and on the walls of the washroom.
