W & X

Amsterdam offers a wealth of fabulous hotels to choose from, like the latest addition on our list of recommendations: the W Hotel. Situated right behind the Royal Palace on Dam Square, the city’s center point for visitors. The W not only offers the luxury of a good night’s sleep in a stylish setting, it also has a stunning rooftop swimming pool.

Right across the street W created the ultimate all-Dutch Design shopping experience called ‘X Bank’. Seven days a week until late in the evening you can shop from its dazzling selection of high and low brow Dutch creativity, ranging from art and design, fashion and jewelry to magazines, books, food and fun stuff.
