Prize-worthy period piece


Classic canal belt

As inspired as its namesake awards, Pulitzer Amsterdam boutique hotel combines modern and historic touches. Occupying a series of connected 17th-century homes within the historic Canal Ring, the rooms blend original beamed ceilings, fireplaces and antiques with contemporary art, gables-inspired headboards and brass details, reflecting the best of old and new Amsterdam. The four Extraordinary Suites showcase the city’s commitment to creativity, with each dedicated to music, antiques, books or art. Should inspiration strike, the hotel is well situated to explore the world-renowned museums. Take it all in, then retreat to acclaimed Jansz restaurant for bistro fare and prime canal views.

Our favourite rooms

Opt for a Canal View Room to take advantage of the spectacular setting. Several suites are devoted to the arts, including books, music and antiques, but the Art Collector’s Suite is a particular treasure, with the walls and floors packed with paintings and sculptures, for a collection to rival one of the city’s exceptional museums.

Packing tips

Bring cycling attire: the city is a haven for cyclists, and Pulitzer provides bike repair kits in every room to ease fear of flat tires.


The hotel offers one wheelchair-accessible room on the ground floor, with wider doorways and an adjustable bed.


Small dogs are welcome in all room categories for €50 a night, but are not allowed in the restaurant or other public hotel areas. See more pet-friendly hotels in Amsterdam.

Food and Drink

Top Table

Take a table by the big windows overlooking the canal to enjoy breezes and the best people-watching.

Dress Code

Pay tribute to the impeccably stylish namesake Volkert Jansz with minimalist, modern attire. Crisp blouses and skinny pants are perfect.

Hotel restaurant

Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, Jansz serves contemporary bistro fare in a bright space overlooking the canal. Named for a 17-century craftsman respected for his taste and style, the restaurant specialises in seasonal, modern takes on classic dishes, which could include morano-spiced salmon with couscous or roasted lamb with lentils, all prepared in the exhibition-style open kitchen. The Dutch cheese platter is nearly mandatory to round out the meal. With a wall of windows and a menu of light dishes, casual breakfast plates and crisp wines, the more casual restaurant, Pause, is an excellent place to recharge between bike rides or take tea on the terrace.

Hotel bar

The warm, clubby Pulitzer’s Bar channels vintage glamour with leather seats, mood lighting and dark corners for cosying up. The menu includes classic cobblers and tonics using jenever, or Dutch Gin, as well as signatures like the Pulitzer Old Fashioned, made with pineapple syrup.

Last orders

Both Jansz and Pause serve food all day, from 6:30am to 10pm, or 11pm at Jansz on Friday and Saturday. Pulitzer's Bar pours from 3pm until 1am daily.

Room service

Food is available for delivery around the clock, though the hotel switches to a consolidated night menu from 11pm to 7am.

Amsterdam’s hub, Schiphol Airport, is a 20-minute drive from the hotel. The airport welcomes flights from major European and American hubs, including direct flights from London Heathrow. Transfers are available for €42.


Centraal station is a 10-minute drive from the hotel and offers high-speed connections to major European cities including Paris, as well as Dutch cities, including Rotterdam, Utrecht and the Hague.

Worth getting out of bed for

Pulitzer Amsterdam perches above Amsterdam’s Prinsengracht and Keizersgracht canals. Get the lay of the city by water on the hotel’s daily boat tour, which uses a vintage vessel that once ferried Winston Churchill around Amsterdam. Explore the city's crannies on a walking tour hosted by the hotel's fleet of concierges. Each Saturday, the team guides a two-and-a-half-hour walking tour (€25 per person) to show off landmarks and favourite hidden places.

In the centre of Amsterdam’s UNESCO World Heritage Site, Pulitzer Amsterdam is a prime jumping-off point for exploring the best of the city. The Anne Frank House, where the young diarist hid and wrote, is a four-minute walk from the hotel. The museum shows films about the Holocaust, and lets visitors into the secret annex that concealed the Frank family. A 20-minute walk south, the legendary Rijksmuseum and Van Gogh Museum each hold world-renowned treasures, including Rembrandts, Vermeers and Van Gogh’s famous Sunflowers. There’s a reason Amsterdam is famous for tulips and flowers — each spring, the city gardens a riot of blooms. Buy a bouquet or stock up on bulbs at Bloemenmarkt, the world’s only floating flower market. Open daily and packed with petals, the market dates to the 1860s and holds every flower imaginable.

Local restaurants

In a converted greenhouse on Park Frankendael, De Kas specialises in Mediterranean dishes using ingredients grown from the chef's own gardens. The farm-to-table fare is served in a daily changing prix-fixe menu available at lunch or dinner. While in town, try the distinctly Dutch rijsttafel, which translates to rice table. A spicy survey of Indonesian dishes that date back to colonial days, the spread includes sampler-size bowls of rice, braised meats, fritters, sambals and stews. Long Pura, a five-minute walk from the hotel, prepares a particularly lavish version.

Local cafés

Lighten up at Lavinia Good Food, a casual, sunny cafe that prepares salads, acai bowls, vegan pizzas and baked goods.

Anonymous review

Every hotel featured is visited personally by members of our team, given the Smith seal of approval, and then anonymously reviewed. As soon as our reviewers have returned from this boutique hotel in Amsterdam and unpacked their tulip bulbs and cycling attire, a full account of their Dutch break will be with you. In the meantime, to whet your wanderlust, here's a quick peek inside Pulitzer Amsterdam…

In near every meaning of the word, Pulitzer Amsterdam is a hotel in good taste. The restaurant, Jansz, attracts the city’s hippest and most discerning diners for seasonal takes on local classics. Those interested to learn more about the city can take a guided tour by canal or land, thanks to the hotel’s vintage teak vessel and a troop of expert concierges leading weekly walking tours of their favorite hidden spots. But some of the best delights wait within Pulitzer’s own walls. Collectors should book the Extraordinary Suite of their choosing, where each of the four is wholly dedicated to a particular creative pursuit. Each is accessible via private entrance on the canal and comes with personalised daily drink service and buffet breakfast. Book worms will delight in the Book Collector's private library and gravity-defying towers of tomes. The Music Collector's Suite, with a wall of trumpets and stash of playable instruments offers a massive collection of albums to play on the vintage record player. Historians who opt for the Antique Collector's hideaway will have busts, portraits, gilded mirrors and hand-carved furnishings set the scene. With nearly no wall space blank, the Art Collector's space is bright with paintings and sculptures that span styles and themes, including a nine-metre modern take on the Frans Hals’ masterpiece The Last Supper.
