Kamer 01 Amsterdam
Fantastic canalside location in the middle of the town, midway between Centraal Station and the significant museums (10-15 minutes’ walk to each), and only five minutes away in the Dam and Flower Market.
Style & personality
Peter and Wolter have renovated their 1585 canal home with creativity and flair. Original features stay (wooden beams, old brickwork, a spiral staircase), and are enlivened by daring colors and inviting materials. It is a place where you could feel totally rested, as a personal guest.
Service & amenities
There is an elaborate attention to detail, but not in a means that is oppressive. It is simply that your every need appears catered for. The few have travelled widely themselves, so understand the small things that make a difference, and also what irritates. Your area is unobtrusively freshened up in the day, there is an open bar (included in the cost), excellent coffee and a massive selection of teas (and nice petits four if a sugar-kick is required).
Two weeks until you encounter they send you an email with hints, and their favorite restaurants (real insider recommendations, as opposed to commission-led clichés).
Up beneath the rafters, the Blue Room, done up in hot film-star-eyed blue, has an impressive canal view and a bright rounded bed. The Red Room, 1 floor below, is a uterus of rich warm colors, using a super-comfy king-size mattress. Additionally, it has a canal view. The two rooms are ample enough to unwind, with couches and a desk; equally possess Apple TV and iMac computers. Bathrooms are fair-sized, but possess transparent glass partitions visible from the mattress. The street-level Green Bundle includes a bigger, but enclosed, bath, a large separate sitting-room, plus a really magnificent four-poster bed (made by Peter).
Food & beverage
The amazing wine is Dutch (it is really great!) , even though there’s the actual things from France, also. The open bar incorporates organic juices, craft beers and sodas, in addition to excellent wines and cava.
