Amsterdam through British eyes

Waldorf Astoria opens in Amsterdam


The Waldorf Astoria Amsterdam opened its doors to the public on the 1st May 2014. Situated along the Herengracht in Amsterdam, it is made up of six resotred canal houses. I got to go on a tour, and suffice to say –  I was definitely impressed. From it’s perfectly manicured garden, and beautiful interiors, through to the huge rooms, and gorgeous food, it had everything.

Inside there are 93 rooms varying in design, style and size and each room was restored with ceiling and wall paint in the original colours. There are a lot of beautiful design features, and each house has a rich history.

There is a garden, which is the biggest in Amsterdam (and had 5,000 tulips planted ready for spring), Guerlain spa (the first in Benelux), a swimming pool, and a restaurant with Sidney Scghutte,  former michelin star chef at De Librije, as their executive chef.

Here is a sneak peek inside:
