Establishing its standout quality early on, W Amsterdam is located not in one but two buildings. Housed in a telephone exchange building from the 1920s and a former bank from 1908, between the Singel Canal and the Royal Palace, the hotel is an interesting mix of heritage and contemporary style, of high-end peaceful hospitality and the city center’s buzz.
