Hotel Okura Amsterdam

With a name worthy of Japanese stories and legends, Hotel Okura Amsterdam is the place where elegance and excellence come together to allow guests from all over the world to enjoy fine Japanese hospitality in one of the most popular cities in Europe.

Known for being famously liberal, Amsterdam is also a real treat for your eyes, with all those romantic canals, charming architecture, renowned museums, amazing boutique shops, or its diverse culture and active nightlife.

You could enjoy them all straight from this luxurious hotel, which offers 300 gorgeous rooms, where exquisite fabrics, state of the art equipment and wonderful decors will try their best to create the proper atmosphere for you to relax and enjoy your stay in Amsterdam in the best way possible.

Marble floors and delicate wallpapers, and an overall creamy white theme should be enough to get you smiling, but the elegant walnut-stained wooden furniture, the leather chairs, or the hi-tech essentials should also help get you there.

Touchscreen controls adjust the curtains, mood lighting, temperature, and alarm clock, so.. this is not really the traditional hotel some may expect, but we doubt anyone will have anything to criticize.

But the main highlights of Hotel Okura are the dining options, with the two Michelin-starred Ciel Bleu serving absolutely incredible dishes inspired by French cuisine, and the Yamazato restaurant, which has been awarded recently a Michelin star for fusing over 50 specialty dishes with a 15th- and 16th-century Sukiya style décor and serene views of a Japanese garden.

If all else fails, the hotel’s Twenty Third Bar will tease your senses and help you make some new friends, as you enjoy your favorite drink. Are you ready for an unforgettable vacation to Amsterdam?
