The Grand Dutch Residence embracing the charm and heritage of the city

We're proud that our guests are able to enjoy the rich history of the hotel, evident in so many different parts of the building. We're happy to tell you many interesting anecdotes. After 150 years of wonderful experiences from our guests we have many to tell. We share our special stories also during our historical tours.

The dream of Dr. Samuel Sarphati

Samuel Sarphati, a famous Amsterdam doctor, developed the idea for establishing a hotel along the Amstel river because of his concern for the wellbeing of the city. Originally, the hotel was to consist of four wings built around a glass-covered inner courtyard with access for coaches on Sarphatistraat. Of the preliminary design only the westerly wing, facing the river, was actually built. Cornelis Outshoorn was the Amstel Hotel's architect and was inspired by royal as well as civil buildings. The first stone was laid on 26 April 1866 and the hotel was finished on 27 April 1867. The Amstel Hotel was the first 'Grand Hotel' in The Netherlands.

Dr. Mezger and his Royal guests

Johann Georg Mezger (1838-1909) specialised in physical therapy opened a practice in the hotel. The unique way this doctor worked attracted a new kind of clientele to stay at the hotel. Many royals came from all over Europe to be treated by Doctor Mezger and stayed in the hotel. For example the Queen of Romania, Empress Elisabeth of Austria, better known as Sissi, the Queen and Crown Prince of Sweden, many German and French aristocratic families and also, from 1897, members of Russian nobility. Doctor Mezger welcomed the patients in the hotel over a period of eighteen years, after which he settled in the German town of Wiesbaden.

History can still be found in the hotel

Initially there were only fourteen bathrooms serving a hundred rooms. They were situated in the basement. Even the Shah of Persia, who stayed in the hotel in 1889, didn't have a private bathroom but had to make his way down to the bathroom, escorted by ten servants. The rooms were divided into three ranks, depending on which floor they were on. When the hotel first opened the prices per bed per night were 2, 1.50 or 1 guilder, depending on the rank. Nowadays the hotel has 79 spacious and luxurious rooms of which 24 Suites. You will still find many historical details in our hotel.
