The best place to feel the spirit of Amsterdam is Dam Square, the main square and actual heart of the city. This bustling and always busy place is encircled with cafes, bars and such points of interest as Madame Tussaud’s, the National Memorial and the The Royal Palace. One of the most significant buildings on the square is the 5-star NH Collection Amsterdam Grand Hotel Krasnapolsky, the city icon and this year`s winner of Luxury Lifestyle Awards in the category of The Best Luxury Hotel in the Netherlands.
The basis of the hotel`s structure was built in 1855 and it was designed as a coffee-house. But in time it expanded into a grand hotel and became one of Amsterdam`s key landmarks. In 2014-2016 Grand Hotel Krasnapolsky was renovated, which gave most of its rooms and areas modern and elegant design. Now the hotel has 451 modernly decorated and well-equipped guest rooms with minibar, free Wi-Fi, flatscreen TV, en-suite bathroom and private Jacuzzi in the Presidential Suite.
But if you are fond of old-fashioned ambience, you can find it in the Winter Garden, a striking atrium-style breakfast room with marble floor, vivid greenery and high ceiling windows. This is a perfect place to enjoy the NH Collection breakfast in the morning. The hotel`s century and a half history also bursts through the 1 Michelin-starred The White Room restaurant`s chandeliers and gilded stucco. Other than that Grand Hotel Krasnapolsky is a contemporary, vibrant and friendly place to stay for modern tourist and business traveler.
“NH Collection Amsterdam Grand Hotel Krasnapolsky has a long history and we believe it has a great future. For us, this recognition from the distinguished experts of Luxury Lifestyle Awards is an important testimony to the exceptional work and effectiveness of the hotel`s entire team. We are honored and proud with this victory,” – says Arne Heuwekemeijer, General Manager of the hotel.
The hotel`s fabulous location makes it extremely easy to reach the key tourist attractions of the Old Center. It will take you about 15 minutes to get to the famous Van Gogh Museum by foot and only 5 minutes to see the Red Light District. There are many more points of interest within walking distance to Grand Hotel Krasnapolsky, and the rest of them can easily be reached by public transport.
