NH Collection Amsterdam Grand Hotel Krasnapolsky *

Massive hotel known to all
Overlooking the bustling public square known as the Dam, and within crawling literally distance of both gay enclaves the Warmoesstraat and the Zeedijk, this 468-room hotel dates back to the 1880s, when entrepreneur and visionary Adolph Wilhelm Krasnapolsky (1834–1912) built it, in then ultra-modern fashion, out of his popular restaurant. By the 20th century the Krasnopolsky name would be synonymous with the Dutch hotel industry, and this flagship would expand nearly four times in size. The hotel's current incarnation, owned by the Spanish NH chain, reflects the modern world, while 19th-century remnants include the glorious conservatory-like Winter Garden designed by architect Gerlof Salm (1831–97), the Grand Café Mathilde – known for Krasnapolsky's sister Mathilde's pancakes – and an elaborately decorated staircase whose wood carvings depict the evolution of man. The already good-looking hotel was given a major renovation in 2014/15.
