East meets west at the 5-star Okura Amsterdam, set on the banks of the Amstel Canal. Japanese flower arrangements sit alongside antique Dutch furniture in the vast lobby, and there are two Michelin-starred restaurants, serving Japanese Teppanyaki and fine French 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 a short walk from the tourist sights – take a walk along the canal to admire the 17th- and 18th-century merchant houses and the city’s wooden bridges. The Museumplein is a 10-minute walk and is home to the three most popular museums in the city – Rijksmuseum, the Van Gogh Museum and Stedelijk Museum.

Back at the hotel, the rooms are spacious for Amsterdam, with 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) and the Nagomi Health club. Low-speed Wi-Fi is free.

Nagomi Health has a large swimming pool, a gym, saunas, a Turkish steam room and spa, with a popular light therapy treatment to treat guests with jetlag. Access for guests usually costs extra, unless you're having a spa treatment.

Enjoy more of those standout views from the Sky Bar on the 23rd floor, or the neighbouring Ciel Bleu (blue sky) restaurant. With two Michelin stars, dinner here is really quite special, with fine French cuisine on the menu. Alternatively, there is the Michelin-starred Yamazato restaurant on the ground floor, serving Teppanyaki cuisine overlooking a Japanese garden.
