Pulitzer Amsterdam

Prinsengracht 315, 1016 GZ Amsterdam, Netherlands

One could argue that the Pulitzer Amsterdam isn’t actually one hotel. Before 1960, each of its 25 buildings was an individual, 17th- or 18th-century merchant canal house. Painstaking renovations over the years have guaranteed that each room feels distinct, maintaining original architectural details from each house, such as arched windows, exposed beams, and friezes. And, from the outside, each house still looks separate, so that the glamorous, art-filled hotel blends right into its surroundings, seeming to be just another of the neighborhood’s picturesque historic buildings.

The recently restored hotel has entrances on and views over two of the city’s main canals—Prinsengracht and Keizersgracht—with a tranquil garden in the middle. The 225 guest rooms blend traditional and modern Dutch craftsmanship and service, while the authentic restaurant and bar showcase local flavors. Located in the heart of Amsterdam’s historic city center, the hotel is within easy reach of the Rijksmuseum, Stedelijk Museum, Van Gogh Museum, and the Anne Frank House. It’s also a quick walk, bike, or boat ride to the fashionable Nine Streets, the quaint shops of Jordaan, the flower market, and the Royal Palace.

Not your typical art gallery

While I was in Amsterdam, I stayed at The Luxury Collection-Hotel Pulitzer. If you are looking for a beautiful hotel with amazing service in a great location (steps from the Anne Frank house). This is the place to stay. I loved walking through the lobby and corridors because all the walls are filled with unique art--it is like you are walking through your own personal art gallery with beautiful paintings and sculptures.

A Room with a View

I could get used to this view! The Hotel Pulitzer is a great place to stay while in Amsterdam...it is in a prime location and has amazing service. The rooms are beautiful and no two rooms are alike. This was a view from our room and it was hard to leave...

First stayed here in 1987!

A Great idea, well executed. Mad up of several townhouses on the Prinzengracht, connected internally with a cute courtyard. I checked it on a recent visit--it’s gotten bigger, more expensive, but is the same concept.
