Modern Amenities in a Historic Amsterdam Hotel 

Historic Hotel Near Central Station

The NH Carlton Amsterdam is located in a historic building with top floors offering views of Mint Tower and Dam Square.

The property is one of the largest buildings in Amsterdam; it was originally built for the 1928 Olympic Games.

Guests staying at the NH Carlton Amsterdam hotel can walk to the entertainment district and nightlife hotspots scattered around the hotel. The property is located right next to the floating flower market and within a short walk of Dam Square and Rembrandt Square. A 15-minute tram ride will take you to the Central Station and the Museum Quarter is within walking distance of the hotel. It’s located south of Leidseplein and home to the Rijksmuseum, the Stedelijk Museum, and the Van Gogh Museum. Travelers will find it relatively easy to take a walking tour of the area; walking or taking the tram are the most affordable ways to experience the city.

Modern Amenities and Access to Recreational Activities

Guests can enjoy privileges such as turndown service and take advantage of babysitting and childcare services during their stay. Roundtrip shuttle service to the airport is available for a surcharge. While there is no fitness center on site, all guests have the option to use a fitness center nearby at a discounted rate.

Il Girasole is the international and Italian restaurant onsite and serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner each day. A buffet breakfast is available until 10 a.m. at Brasserie.

Those who want to enjoy some recreational activities during their stay have easy access to area golf courses and can rent a scooter or bicycle to explore the downtown area.

City View Rooms with Deluxe Amenities

Guests can choose between standard, superior, and deluxe rooms designed with contemporary furnishings and decor. All guest rooms are furnished with a flat-screen television, minibars, and are connected to a Wi-Fi network. Even though the building was built in the 1920s in the style of a traditional Amsterdam school, the interior has been decorated with modern touches. All of the guest rooms on the top three floors of the hotel have a balcony and offer views of the Mint Tower and Dam Square. Some rooms cater to business travelers with a separate seating area and desk. Other amenities include a 46” flat-screen television in each room, plush mattresses, and hairdryers.

The Bottom Line

The NH Carlton Amsterdam Hotel is located near the NH City Centre Amsterdam and both properties offer a variety of attractive amenities and conveniences for travelers that want to be near some of Amsterdam’s premier sites. The city views of Vijzelstraat and flower markets from top-floor rooms and Il Girasole restaurant are some of the highlights of this property.
