Founded by Dr Samuel Sarphati, a leading physician in the 19th Century, the hotel was created as an architectural monument. A palace on the banks of the Amstel, which would put Amsterdam on the map internationally. The hotel was built in collaboration with Cornelis Outshoorn, one of Amsterdam’s most progressive 19th -century architects, and was inspired by some of the most famous buildings in Europe. With beautifully detailed arches from the “Golden Age” and the richly decorated lobby, the hotel has attracted many prominent figures and guests, who wanted to experience the glamour of the Amstel Hotel since it opened on April 27, 1867.
At the Amstel Hotel, there is only one thing that matters: our guests should look back on a wonderful experience. Only when you leave the hotel with a smile, we will be satisfied.
