Haute Culture
Day 1

Welcome to Amsterdam! Drop your bags in your room, then take a seat in our charming bar to officially start your break with a nice cup of coffee.

Your Haute Culture journey begins at the Opsolder Museum; The museum is in the heart of the old city centre of Amsterdam, hidden in a 17th-century canal house and tells the stories of merchants and priests. It reveals how they lived, worked and practised their religion in the 17th century.

Next, it’s time to grab lunch and have a break at Lolo. Lolo offers fusion of modern and contemporary Italian cuisine, outstanding wines, and innovative cocktails. This unconventional restaurant strikes a balance between being distinctive and welcoming, with a homely ambience.

In the afternoon, head to the Begijnhof Amsterdam, one of the city’s oldest hofjes (courtyards). Explore the historic, hidden courtyards filled with greenery and take in the classical Dutch architecture (and a little solitude).

For dinner, grab a table at Restaurant Max, located 5 minutes walk from the hotel in the beautiful canal area. The cosmopolitan setting and adventurous menu make this a great restaurant to experience the city’s dining scene. With the night growing to a close, return to the hotel for one of our signature cocktails in the relaxing bar area before getting a restful night’s sleep.

Day 2

Rise and shine. Our freshly-made breakfast in the charming lounge bar awaits. Strong coffee, refreshing juices and special eggs whipped up by our chef to order will set you up for some city exploring.

The first stop on today’s itinerary is a trip to Hermitage Museum. This institution showcases exhibitions from the vast collection of the Grand State Hermitage in St Petersburg. Uncrowded and off the usual tourist route, you’ll discover first class-art and exhibitions of interest without going to Russia.

A short walk from Hermitage, you’ll stumble upon Foam, a photography museum on the Keizersgracht. This gem of a museum presents changing exhibitions and features all kinds of photographic genres – history, art, news and fashion – so there’s plenty to inspire you.

For dinner, we recommend Restaurant de Plantage. Elegant and ultramodern, this bistro serves up delicious contemporary European dishes. There’s a spacious bar area where you can grab a delicious cocktail and nibbles, and the setting couldn’t be better – the restaurant proper is housed in a cavernous 19th-century conservatory.

Day 3

Start your day with over 130 years of history. Waterlooplein Market is the oldest in existence in Amsterdam today. From vintage jewellery and clothing to used cameras and second-hand books, you’re sure to find some unique treasures to take home (we hope you left space in your suitcase…).

Learning about Amsterdam during World War II at the interactive Resistance Museum continues the history theme.

In the afternoon, explore the former home of one of The Netherlands’ most famous painters. At the Rembrandt House Museum, you can experience how the painter lived, worked and taught his students.

For your last night in Amsterdam, dinner at the restaurant De School makes the perfect finishing touch. This hidden culinary gem has a great chilled-out ambience and features an exhibition space and a concert venue.
