The Vibe: Celebrating Dutchness.
The Area: Park Centraal Amsterdam is situated between Leidseplein and Vondelpark, the city’s cultural heart, it has become a celebration of its surroundings, and a destination in its own right.
The DNA: With an ethos inspired by the quality of life in The Netherlands, the Park Centraal brand reflects the country’s balanced and social lifestyle of combining a healthy working atmosphere with pleasure; usually manifested by way of atmospheric bars, music and quality food. Formerly the Park Hotel Amsterdam, and hosting guests since 1880, the property was given a renewed lease of life in 2019; the modern makeover marking a new chapter for the hotel, whilst remaining deeply ingrained in Dutch culture, and respecting of both its heritage and much sought-after prime location. Set in one of Amsterdam‘s most recognisable flatiron-style buildings, the contemporary, elegant design at Park Centraal Amsterdam features interior pieces by local design studios GHYCZY and Urban Nature Culture; artwork from contemporary Dutch artist, Kat Klerks; and a ‘destination’ ground floor space designed by studio FG Stijl, home to Bar Claes, a sociable and slickly styled setting where locals and travellers from all over the world can rub shoulders and relax over comforting food and drinks.
Suite-Me-Up: Guestrooms combine comfort with Dutch influences and contemporary design, the cosiest to most grandeur providing harmony through deep, rich colour palettes, inviting beds, an open-concept bathroom, goody boxes and espresso machines; quite the spot to retire to after a day spent traversing the city’s cobblestones, canals and clubs.
