W Amsterdam Hotel: Review
W Amsterdam Hotel is right in the heart of the city, and the place to stay when you want to get the most out of your time in the Amsterdam. A quick 15-minute walk away from the main train station, it’s right beside Dam Square- making it accessible to the lively night-life, and the easy transportation. Perfect if you’re taking the Thalys into Amsterdam. Luxury travel at it’s best.
While you may have other reasons to be in Amsterdam, the hotel does provide all the amenities that you would need for a luxurious stay. This newly opened modern hotel is split across 2 buildings ( a former telephone exchange and a bank). The guestrooms along with the pool, Mr Porter restaurant and lounge being in one building while the spa and The Duchess located across the street.
The hotel has 238 guest rooms, 3 WOW suites and 2 Extreme Suites for those you fancy the nicer things in life ( or travel).
While the rooms aren’t huge, they are functional, and have all the amenitities that you need for a comfortable stay.
One of our favourite features of the hotel was the fact that the lobby was on the 6th floor, giving you amazing views of Amsterdam- this was a particular delight as there aren’t a lot of tall buildings in Amsterdam so the skyline was magical.
Sitting right on the top of the building on the 6th floor of the W Amsterdam Hotel- this is the place to go when you want to enjoy great views while being served a delicious meal. We recommend trying the halibut on couscous, and the cheesecake for dessert.
Express Mani/ Spa
An expected treat that you don’t get to see every often is the express manicure that they provide in the hotel lobby between 1-3 to promote the spa services across the street.
Mr Porter Lounge
The new hotspot in town, the Mr Porter Lounge on the 6th floor offers a chill vibe, and great signature drinks. Definately a must- even if it’s just for a quick drink.
One of the best features of the W Amsterdam Hotel (all W Hotels actually) is the WHATEVER/WHENEVER® service. Basically, you press the corresponding button on your phone and they will deliever whatever your heart wants (legal of course!).
For those who enjoy perusing the Red Light district, you’ll be happy to know that the hotel is less than a 5 minute walk away. Great for those late night parties.
