Amsterdam’s Hot Hotel Scene- Sir Albert Opens in De Pijp

Sir Albert Amsterdam

It seems there’s no end in sight to the new designer additions to Amsterdam’s hotel scene. And this is the year to take a jaunt to the Dutch capital, as it celebrates a bevy of milestones and the opening of the Rijksmuseum after a 10-year renovation. Looking for a sexy hotel option? Hot on the heels of the Andaz Amsterdam Prinsengracht, designed by Marcel Wanders, the Sir Albert Hotel opened in January in a former Van Moppes diamond factory in the De Pijp neighborhood.

The striking interior design by BK Architecture features a cool “Study” with a curated library, fireplace, and board games (like chess). The 90 guest rooms and suites are loaded with designer furnishings and luxurious amenities like 300 thread count sheets, private bars, Illy espresso machines, and rainforest showers. Wifi access is free. IZAKAYA Asian Kitchen & Bar, helmed by former Nobu chef Hariprasad Shetty, has become one of the hottest spots in town since it opened last November. For more information, visit
