The Prinsengracht is part of the iconic canal ring that was added to the UNESCO World Heritage List in 2010. This puts our hotel right in the bustling heart of the city.

Key sites/activities in the area
The hotel building is the former Public Library of Amsterdam. The library was there from 1977 until 2007 when it was relocated to Oosterdokseiland. This heritage informs the design direction with books, both physical and deconstructed, forming the look and feel and illustrations that form murals around the hotel, taken by Marcel Wanders from books in the original library. Another design theme of the hotel is that of the Alice in Wonderland story, again a subtle reference to the building’s former use.
