WHAT’S THE STORY BEHIND THE LOOK? Built in the 17th century fora wealthy sugar trader, this nine-room hotel on the Prinsengracht canal still has the feel of a grand private home, and is full of period furnishings and gilt-framed artworks. Extras like afternoon tea in the library (pictured) are included, so you can sit back with a book and a slice of cake and pretend you own the place.
WHICH ROOM IS MOST MEMORABLE? Room at the Top is a rich, duck-egg blue, with views over surrounding rooftops.
