About the place

Amsterdam is one of Europe’s most gay-friendly cities, so it makes sense that the Dutch capital is also home to plenty of gay hotels, and Amistad Hotel is just one of them. Previously known as ‘The Gay-Friendly Hotel’, Amistad opens its doors to all members of the LGBTQ community, and promises an enjoyable stay from start to finish.

Housed in a tall, narrow building, Amistad Hotel offers a quintessentially Dutch accommodation experience, and is a frontrunner in the gay-hotel-Amsterdam scene. While the facade may reflect traditional architecture, there is nothing old-school about this place. After undergoing a six-month renovation in 2018, the hotel now confidently meets the demands of the modern-day traveler, all the while maintaining a cozy, homely ambiance.

The hotel’s nine rooms each boast contemporary furnishings that seamlessly pair with a fresh color palette of white and deep blue. A flat-screen TV and free unlimited internet also give you the perfect excuse to unwind in your room for a while, in between clubbing sessions at some of the city’s best gay clubs.

Beyond the rooms, you can also look forward to a complimentary breakfast served each morning from 8am to 12pm in the hotel’s ground-floor breakfast room. Rise and shine like a with a typical Dutch breakfast of freshly-prepared egg dishes and pancakes. Everything is served at a communal table, which gives you the perfect occasion to mingle with fellow hotel guests. While it may initially seem like an effort to wake up after a night of clubbing, it will be worth it - many guests claim the breakfast is the highlight of their stay!

Perhaps one of the main draw-cards of a stay at Amistad, however, is the hotel’s incredible location. Centrally positioned amongst the city’s network of canals, you’ll be treated to typical scenes of the Dutch capital each day. On top of this, Amistad Hotel is just a seven-minute walk from Amsterdam’s main gay street, Reguliersdwarsstraat, meaning public transportation will be a thing of the past with a stay here.
