Last week i stayed in The Hoxton Amsterdam, a gem in the city where you absolutely must have been once. This was not my first time visiting this hotel. About three years ago i was invited for a press preview tour, just before the official opening of this exiting hotspot. Since then the Hoxton’s lobby became one of my favourite spots to have a coffee and chit chat with friends or to get some laptop work done. So even though I am familiar with the concept I must say that staying here as a guest was for me a brand new and a cozy experience.
The Hoxton is located in the city centre, in five canal houses on the Herengracht, near the Dam. It is a hotspot at all hours of the day, where you can both unwind and take in the local culture. Even without checking-in you can have here a drink or a snack or an extensive dinner. The Hoxton Amsterdam is also an inspiring location for events. In the middle of the hotel is The Apartment, a unique meeting and event space around an open courtyard. There are art exhibitions, lectures, yoga sessions, photography workshops and much more.
Lotti’s is a café, bar and grill and it’s open from early morning until late at night. The restaurant has an open kitchen and serves grilled meats, seafood, pasta and small plates, in addition to a wide choice of breakfast dishes and a weekend brunch menu. The bar menu offers Double Dutch cocktails, tonics and beers on draft. During the day, the café is a place to meet, relax or work, and from Thursday to Sunday the bar plays host to local DJ talent.
The hotel has 111 beautifully designed rooms and no two are exactly alike. The styling of the suites is a bit of old mixed with new, quirks and history, from monumental ceilings to double showers, canal views, comfortable beds and original beams. . Just a perfectly comforting hotel room. Check out also the favourite hotel lobby’s in Amsterdam.
