Top choice hotel in Oosterpark & East of the Amstel
Image by Booking.com

Ignore the drab exterior: 'People's Hotel' has the vibe of an uber-cool media company, with glass-box meeting rooms and lots of bright young things on laptops in the work space. The quirky rooms vary, but all feature designer touches and bold colours. There are hot tubs with fabulous views on the rooftop, and Canvas roof-terrace bar is a city hotspot.

The hotel developed in vintage Amsterdam fashion; squatters took over this former newspaper building and an art community developed. People then started visiting the studios and the improvisational bar-restaurant that sprouted.
