Set near Leidseplein, one of the top entertainment areas in Amsterdam – absolutely jam-packed with coffee shops, bouncing bars and clubs – this hotel is fantastic for location alone. The trams in the district – one, two and five - will also take you around the centre, if you are looking to explore a little further, and the Rijksmuseum, dedicated to arts and history, is just 10 minutes away. The 3-star hotel is seriously traditional, taking inspiration from the name with a French influence – it’s all deep red, chandeliers and dark furnishings. The guest rooms are spacious and cosy, and they each have a private bathroom and WiFi access. And, you can relax in the cosy hotel lobby after a long day of celebrating.
