Personal trainers, Pilates and yoga can all be arranged. Be sure to take a tour of the hotel's fascinating video-art collection too. A concept unique to Andaz, 40 challenging and engaging artworks – by artists such as Ryan Gander and Erwin Olaf – are screened in the hallways, lounge and lobby; guests can also take an in-depth look by browsing the dedicated in-room arts channel.

Our favourite rooms
Though the Andaz King and Andaz Queen rooms overlooking the giant bells in the atrium have an unusual perspective, you can’t beat the calming sights of the canal; we loved the Prinsengracht-framing vantage point of Canal View Queen Room 209 in particular. Look out for the interesting wallhanging above your bedhead – it might be a fish head, seashell or giant spoon.
Some Lewis Carroll to brush up on life in Wonderland, and cycle-suitable footwear if you plan to pedal.
Treatments can be arranged either in the spa or in your room. Book in for a rejuvenating Perricone facial.
Cats and dogs can stay for a one-off charge of €35 a booking, and are welcome in the bar but not the restaurant. Dogs get their own bone, biscuits and bowl, as well as a choice of bed or mat. Guide dogs stay free. See more pet-friendly hotels in Amsterdam.
Some rooms can interconnect, and the restaurant welcomes children. All suites and the Large Garden View and Large Canal View rooms can fit a cot for a baby (free for under-ones) or an extra bed (free for under-12s, €65 a night for over-13s).
