"Few cities meld history with modern urban flair like Amsterdam", according to Lonely Planet, and the Sir Albert Hotel -- a red-brick property that started life as a 19th-century diamond factory -- perfectly personifies this city and its talent for mixing the old with the new.
The Sir Albert Hotel is in the De Pijp district, which is just south of the city centre. It is home to many boutiques, galleries and bars, and "is choked with well-priced restaurants producing cooking from every nationality across the globe", says Frommer's. However, some of Amsterdam's mainstream tourist attractions, including the Rijksmuseum, the Van Gogh Museum and Vondelpark, are within 15 minutes' walk. Bikes are also available at the hotel to hire, with discounts for multiple days.
Chefs at the hotel's Japanese restaurant IZAKAYA Asian Kitchen & Bar cook on a traditional Japanese robata grill in an open kitchen. However, if you want to dine here you'll have to book in advance, because, as The New York Times warns, this restaurant is "wildly popular". The hotel's study has a fireplace, leather reading chairs and a chess set.
The Daily Telegraph describes the bedrooms as "quietly modern" and "spacious for Amsterdam". Each one has a flat-screen television, an iPod docking station, a mini bar, an espresso maker and a tea tray. Guests in Sir Deluxe rooms can also borrow iPads to use throughout their stay. Wi-Fi is free throughout.
