Amsterdam is known for its artistic heritage, elaborate canal system and narrow houses with gabled facades, legacies of the city’s 17th-century Golden Age. Cycling is key to the city’s character with 400km of cycle paths. Art lovers head to the Museum District to indulge in works by Rembrandt at the Rijksmuseum, the Van Gogh Museum and modern art at the Stedelijk.
Hotel Okura Amsterdam is located in the middle of ‘De Pijp’, the lively Quartier Latin of Amsterdam. Standing 23 floors tall, it offers unrivalled views over the city’s criss-crossing canals, charming gabled facades and more then 1200 bridges. Guests can spend the afternoon sight-seeing, relax at the Nagomi Spa & Health, dine at one of the hotel’s four restaurants (three are Michelin starred) before retiring to the luxury of ‘The Suite’ – at 485 sq metres, it is the largest and most luxurious suite in the Benelux countries.
