W Amsterdam has all the elements you usually expect from a gay-favorite chain: a unique contemporary look, luxurious facilities, and a fresh, young edge. As always, they have drawn inspiration from the local culture for their decor, and here in design-obsessed Amsterdam, this means a more understated, minimalist look than in some of their other locations. The effect is effortlessly cool and supremely pleasant.
This very gay-favorite hotel is split across two buildings, Exchange and Bank. Exchange houses the cheaper selection of rooms, which are more compact and simply decorated, while Bank features the Fabulous range of rooms as well as various luxury suites. All the rooms feature W signature beds and ultra-smooth bedding for a revitalizing night’s sleep.
The dining options are perfect if you like your dinners meaty and your drinks fruity. You can choose between a steakhouse, an excellent burger spot, a Michelin-starred Mediterranean restaurant, and a swanky cocktail lounge. The hotel also offers very good fitness facilities, including a fully-equipped 24/7 gym (offering free classes), sauna, whirlpool, and both an indoor and an outdoor heated pool.
W Amsterdam is located just behind Dam Square, one of the central hubs of the city. The red light district, Anne Frank House, the Flower Market, and Dampkring – one of the most famous “coffee shops” in the city -, are all within a 10-minute walk of the hotel. Gay Amsterdam’s leading attractions, like Club Church and Club NYX are just a 15-minute walk away.
