Hotel Okura Amsterdam
About the Hotel
Why We Love This Hotel
- This is the tallest hotel in the city, with a pretty canalside location & great views
- Two Michelin-starred restaurants on site, plus a full spa & large swimming pool
- Rooms are "of the highest grade, offering subtle, unshowy luxuries galore", says The Guardian
East meets west at the 5-star Hotel Okura Amsterdam, on the banks of the Amstel Canal. The hotel is home to four restaurants, which hold four Michelin stars between them and serve authentic Japanese cuisine and fine international food.
Forty years after opening, the hotel remains one of the tallest buildings in Amsterdam and functions in part as a huge barometer, with lights across the top that forecast the weather -- blue for good, green for rain. It's also within easy reach of the city’s tourist sights -- the Museumplein is 20 minutes’ walk away and is home to the three most popular museums in the city: Rijksmuseum, the Van Gogh Museum and Stedelijk Museum. You can also set out from the hotel for a stroll along the canal to admire the 17th- and 18th-century merchant houses and the city's wooden bridges.
Back at the hotel, the rooms are spacious for Amsterdam, and feature luxurious Dutch beds, Nespresso machines, international wall sockets (British and European), and a control panel for the curtains, lights and room temperature. Huge bathroom windows make the most of the view. Upgrade to an Executive Room for access to the Executive Lounge (with free all-day snacks and drinks). High-speed Wi-Fi is free.
The on-site Nagomi Health has a large swimming pool, a gym, saunas and a Turkish steam room. Nagomi Spa captures the art of Japanese relaxation with facials, bamboo massages and Shiatsu.
You can take in more of those standout views from the Sky Bar on the 23rd floor, or the neighbouring 2-Michelin-starred Ciel Bleu (blue sky) restaurant, which serves fine international cuisine. Alternatively, there is the Yamazato restaurant on the ground floor, serving authentic Japanese cuisine and the Teppanyaki restaurant Sazanka. Each holds a Michelin star.
