  • Overview

    In a slinky, red brick building down a quiet alleyway, you’ll discover the charming Hotel Dwars. Perfectly located near all the big sights – Rembrandt Square, Carré, the Magere Brug & Rijksmuseum to name a few – it’s a sweet, romantic choice for your Amsterdam jaunt.

    With only nine rooms, this boutique hotel is as intimate as it is personal, with rustic chic décor and an urban feel. It's worth noting that due to the age of the building there is no lift, and with a fair few steep and narrow stairs it is not suited to the less mobile.


    Located a few steps from the lively bars of Utrechtsestraat and a 5/10-minute walk from Rembrandt Square, many of Amsterdam's sights are within walking distance. There is also a tram stop right by the hotel if you’re not up for walking.

    Not unusually for such a small hotel, it is worth noting that the reception isn’t open 24-hours a day, but the staff here are absolutely charming and will go out of their way to ensure you have a good stay.


    Whilst there is no restaurant at the hotel, there are plenty of eating and drinking options so close by, giving you good excuse to be out and about as much as possible.
