Dating back to the 19th century, the NDSM Wharf was once Amsterdam's largest shipyard. When the shipbuilding work stopped, the artists and bohemians moved in. Now it is the site of much regeneration in the city, and the riverfront DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Amsterdam - NDSM Wharfis the only hotel.
While the hotel is away from the centre of the city, on the north bank of the river IJ, the free ferry that runs until late from Centraal Station makes it easy to get around. The journey to Museum Quarter takes around 45 minutes, including the 15-minute ferry ride to Centraal, from where you can also reach the Anne Frank House, the Old Church and the Royal Palace within 10 minutes via tram.
There are plenty of interesting restaurants to try on the wharf -- the glass-domed Noorderlicht café-restaurant often has live music, and the PIIek restaurant, made up of SeaTrain containers, has a good ambiance. The hotel's own Brooklyn Restaurant is open every day for lunch and dinner, and serves Dutch and international cuisine. In the mornings, there's a buffet breakfast.
Some of the rooms are on the small side but the décor is modern, with floor-to-ceiling windows along one wall. Water-view rooms are worth the extra money, but ask for one on a higher floor to make the most of it. Rooms also have a mini bar, Nespresso coffee machine and tea-making facilities, plus rainfall showers in the bathrooms. Wi-Fi is free throughout. There's also a small 24-hour gym and bikes are available to rent.
