Sir Adam Hotel, located in the iconic A’Dam Tower – built in 1971, is Amsterdam’s hip, new boutique hotel and creative hub that brings a bold new dimension to the city’s cool hospitality scene. Opting for the not-so traditional hotel lobby and opening its doors and welcoming all. Sir Adam invites you to the Butcher Social Club “a living lounge”, this is a gateway for workers to pass through, grab a coffee, order a gourmet burger and get on with some work or meetings. Sir Adam will be a hit for musicians and other creative types passing through the Dutch capital.
Stepping up into the mezzanine going past the pool table, arcade games, 2-story living green wall and original art; you enter the check in reception which is well blended in with a co-working space-meets-concept store. From there you can wander up the stairs to the Beergarden, a rooftop where you can drink Amsterdam’s finest craft beers whilst soaking in the lush surrounding landscaped greenery and sculptures.
All of the 108 rooms designed by award winning designers ICRAVE, with floor to ceiling windows overlooking the port and historic centre, kitted out with works from local artist, and custom-made furniture and lighting. The attention to detail is on point – the lighting is spot on and as for the beds, wow you’ve just got to try it out for yourself.
Quirky touches like the Crosley Cruiser record player had me dancing around to Dolly Parton in my room and mirrors with lyrics blend in beautifully with their musical neighbors Sony and Gibson. Bathrooms are lined in Calcutta tiles with rainfall showers and the signature DEAD CLEAN amenities.
Arriving to the hotel from the airport was a super easy transition. Amsterdam Central station is opposite the hotel and then you hop on a quick complimentary ferry shared with locals on foot, bikes and scooters. What a bonus! Sir Adam is housed in the A’Dam Toren, the highly anticipated redevelopment overlooking the famous Canal district.
Situated beside the futuristic EYE Film Institute, the tower and surrounding neighborhood is home to an exciting mix of shops, cafes, revolving restaurant and an observation deck. Oh and be sure to borrow a bike from the hotel and explore the beautiful sites that Amsterdam has to offer.
