The 122-room Andaz Amsterdam hotel is located in the historic centre of Amsterdam, on the site of the former Public Library on Amsterdam's Prinsengracht, "Prince Canal", and within close walking distance from Amsterdam's major attractions. The upscale boutique hotel is part of the rich cultural character of the lively Jordaan district, home to Amsterdam's main modern art galleries and fashion houses. The hotel's superb location in central Amsterdam offers convenient accessibility to the city's prime retail, cultural and business districts and this makes Andaz Amsterdam the ideal base for both leisure and business travellers. The design concept of Andaz Amsterdam and the stylish allure of the rooms reflect a modern view of Dutch history. The boutique hotel is developed according to the highest quality standards with a special focus on sustainability. Only on the outside is the original building recognisable, behind the façade lies a world-class hotel. In line with other Andaz branded hotels, Andaz Amsterdam combines the best of lifestyle and boutique hotels with a contemporary and personal approach.
"At the Andaz Hotel we once had a remarkable guest: Mrs. Bluespoon.
She was a warm and kind person, an inspiration. Everybody loved her. The more time Mrs. Bluespoon spent in Amsterdam, the more she fell in love with the city in all its forms: the food, the art, but mostly the people. She had the ability to connect and make friends with anyone.
Whenever her travels took Mrs. Bluespoon to Amsterdam you could find her in the hotel’s restaurant, sipping from a coffee or a cocktail, catching up with friends. And every time she left, Mrs. Bluespoon left a void. Not just because of her extravagant personality, also because she treated the staff like family. In order to feel her presence even when she was gone they decorated the lobby, bar and restaurant in the extravagant style of Mrs. Bluespoon. Indeed, they even named it after her. Now everybody could feel as warm, welcome and loved as Mrs. Bluespoon always made them feel.
Mrs. Bluespoon still drops by every once in a while. Sometimes you’ll see her, sometimes you won’t. But even when she’s not around, her extravagance always lingers."
