Boutique hotels have become a niche for small, personally run group of hotels that are a bit larger than a bed and breakfast and a bit more intimate than a stately hotel. When these hotels are run by major hotel chains, they still offer very personalized services.
The Andaz Boutique Hotel was recommended by a local who frequents the Bluespoon Restaurant and Bar. It is operated by Hyatt Hotels with all the amenities you would expect from a top-notch accommodation. If you travel with your adorable dog, the Andaz welcomes them with a designer bed, 2 designer food bowls, dog treats and mineral water of his own. If you need to avoid climbing the steep staircases found in most every building in Amsterdam, the Andaz is one that you should put near the top of your list.

On the quieter and unique side of Boutique Hotels is the Hotel Maxime. This is a very unique experience starting with the check-in at the restaurant downstairs, which turns out to be the entry to your hotel. If you want to stay in a clean, comfortable room smack in the middle of the museums, fashion centers and parks, this is an excellent choice.
As a final option to the Boutique Hotels Amsterdam trade, you might be enamoured by the Seven One Seven on the Prinsengracht Canal. With only nine rooms available and the amenities found in world class hotels, this niche accommodation is top of the line. Each room is named after a famous artist – whether writer, painter or musician. Choose from the writers – Dickens, Shakespeare or Tolkien – the composers – Franz Liszt or Schubert or from the painters Van Goethe and Picasso.
Ask the operator or concierge for special deals that may be available on private boat tours, the best time of day to attend a favourite museum or directions with a map to visit those sights you wish to see each day.
