8 Impala partner hotels to visit in Amsterdam this spring
From the floating flower markets brimming with tulips to the bustling cafes cracking open their doors to the fresh air, there’s so much to love about a spring visit to Amsterdam — and such a visit deserves a stay just as remarkable. Van Gogh’s finest works of art and all of the stroopwafels you can eat await only footsteps from the city’s exceptional hotels.
Whether you’re looking for a quick city break, a change of scenery for remote working, or an extended vacation, you’ll find what you’re seeking in the Dutch capital. To help you explore every delightful corner of the city this spring, we’ve handpicked some of our most exciting partner properties to visit in Amsterdam, all bookable through our partner room sellers.
1. Zoku Amsterdam
If you work like an Impalan and are looking for a hotel to support your remote lifestyle, Zoku has cracked the code. They provide remote workers and business travellers with a home-office hybrid space that’s filled with creature comforts and upscale amenities. Communal coworking spaces, private worklofts, and daily Fika breaks will keep you on-task.
However, all work and no play is not the Zoku way. Squeeze in a little fun with a night in their Escape Loft XL suites: Exciting home-office hybrid accommodations that double as custom-designed escape rooms.
2. Hotel Die Port van Cleve
Drink in the history of Die Port van Cleve, and be prepared to order up another round if you’ve got a beer connoisseur in your party. The hotel’s rich history has been brewing for 150 years, with the structure acting as a beer house behind the ‘De Hooiberg’ brewery.
Today, you’re still welcome to imbibe local beers in de Blauwe Parade, after obligatory steaks at Restaurant Hulschers, of course. With a full belly and bubbly mind, you can retreat to one of the History suites, where this hotel’s past is proudly written on the walls.
3. ibis Styles Amsterdam Central Station
For the visitor on the go, it’s hard not to choose Ibis Styles as the go-to holiday home. Its location simply can’t be beaten: Directly across from the Central Station, you can walk to Dam Square, the Old Church, and Kalverstraat before you even break a sweat.
This design economy hotel works hard to provide a pleasant stay – and even harder to keep some coin in your pocket. Public transportation surrounds the hotel, but a free breakfast will perk you up enough to see the sights with no other ride than your own two feet.
4. NH Collection Amsterdam Barbizon Palace
The NH Collection’s Barbizon Palace delivers a luxurious yet laid-back experience that you’ll think about for years to come. It goes without saying that the multi-course menu at the Michelin-starred Vermeer will be a highlight of your visit; though a special dinner curated by Vermeer’s chef and served in the 15th-century Saint Olof’s Chapel is just as remarkable.
The city views from your room illustrate just how close you are to the Rembrandt Museum, NEMO Science Museum, and Red Light District. Rest assured that no one will fault you for sparing a few hours of sightseeing to unwind at the cosy Bottles & Jars Bar.
If ‘come as you are’ were a place, it’d be the laid-back, highly-inclusive Volkshotel. The hotel seems purpose-built for just about anything that anyone could need during a stay in Amsterdam. From the basement to the rooftop, cosy retreats and spacious hangouts provide equal amounts of me-time and mingle-time.
Rooms as unique as the clientele – such as the mysterious Soixante Neuf and eclectic-decorated Lost & Found – are just the beginning. Explore more and find a surprise on every floor like the artsy Broedplaats, the pamper-poised Badplaats, and the immersive underground hub of sonic subculture, Doka.
6. NH Collection Amsterdam Doelen
While the NH Collection’s Barbizon Palace has a Michelin-starred restaurant under its roof, its sister property, the Doelen, can stake its claim as Amsterdam’s oldest hotel — where everyone from The Beatles to Queen Victoria have caught their z’s.
You’ll feel like a modern-day celebrity in any of their renovated rooms, though the Rembrandt Suite is especially lavish. The canal views are only second to the room’s replica of “The Night Watch” that adorns the walls.
7. YAYS Amsterdam Salthouse Canal
Snuggled up against the historic Jordaan district, these YAYS apartments are worth their weight in salt, and then some. Built on the Zoutkeetsgracht in the same space where Amsterdam’s 18th century salt warehouses once called home, YAYS invites you to explore this charming urban area near the Central Station.
That is, if you can find the will to leave. Between the whitewashed brick walls, beamed ceilings, and home-like convenience, you’ll find it effortless to settle in and stay.
8. Grand Hotel Amrâth Amsterdam
A lesson in Amsterdam School architecture awaits you at the Grand Hotel Amrâth. This former Shipping House reflects the city’s classic architecture on the exterior, while its interior reflects the same Art Nouveau-adjacent style with opulent design and warm hues.
Grandeur comes standard in every space, from the high-ceilings of the deluxe rooms to the breathtaking views of Amsterdam from the Tower Suite’s private terrace. Even the tempting assortment of luxurious teas and light bites at High Tea won’t captivate you as much as the magnificent interior of the Scheepvaarthuis.
