The Dylan-Courtyard

Where to stay: The Dylan Amsterdam

Located on the picturesque “Keizersgracht” canal in the heart of the Nine Streets shopping area, 17th-Century hotel, The Dylan hosts 40 rooms and suites over two canal-side buildings. The entrance itself – an original stone archway (in the 16th Century the site was home to a theatre) and cobbled front courtyard, lined by bikes and tulips leading up to the door – captures the hotel’s style and spirit, marrying old-world charm with contemporary flair. Each of the 40 rooms boast their own unique taste, split into four main interior categories. The “Loxura” series, modelled on the copper-coloured Loxura butterfly; the “Loft” bedrooms, highlighting the building’s original wooden beams; the “Amber” rooms, inspired by the precious stone; and finally, the “Serendipity” rooms, decorated in warm shades of brown and grey with splashes of luxurious fabrics. The charming terrace in the historical courtyard is reflected in the custom-made mirrors, doubling natural light during the day while guests are enjoying breakfast, having the best coffee in Amsterdam, an appetising lunch or afternoon tea. The Dylan’s brasserie, OCCO, offers a chic and casual setting, serving local dishes while Michelin-starred Restaurant Vinkeles is located in a former 18th-Century bakery.
