Soho House Amsterdam has all the ingredients of a crowd-pleasing cocktail… Take a Thirties trading office with original deco features, add a measure of mid century-modern interiors; throw in a shot of hedonism, courtesy of a club lounge and DJ sets at weekends. Next, temper your mix with a little practicality – a quiet spot for remote working, plus helpful staff well versed in local knowledge. Now top up with polished mod-cons including a Cowshed spa, fitness suite, two restaurants and a rooftop pool. Garnish with a cherry-on-top location in Binnenstad – then drink it all in at your leisure.

Our favourite rooms
Any room with a ‘Plus’ in its title has a canal view to go with retro-luxe decor, a super king-size bed and tiled ensuite. Tiny and Small rooms are good value if you’re planning to be mostly out and about; Medium rooms upwards come with a bigger footprint for space to lounge. Monumental rooms are concentrated on the first floor where original windows and features such as wooden panelling and parquet flooring lend grandeur. For a freestanding copper bath tub in the bedroom, book a Big, Large or Extra Large room; the latter is the club’s lavishly appointed suite with dining space, a living room and bar.
The trademark Soho House rooftop terrace features a raised lap pool lined with mosaic tiles and heated (open 8am–8pm, or until 10pm in summer). Flop onto an awning-shaded day-bed or bag a parasol-shaded bistro table.
Beside the main entrance to the hotel you’ll find Neville barbershop, next door to a Cowshed spa treatment space with retro armchairs for mani-pedis. Upstairs at Soho Health Club, unwind in the steam room or sauna, scale the corridor climbing wall. The gym, which overlooks the canal, has Technogym machines, free weights and LifeFitness equipment, plus options for personal training.
Hairdryers, hair straighteners and bathrobes are all provided, so you can leave extra space in your cases for all those boutique buys and Cowshed goodies you'll be bringing home.
Assorted rooms are adapted for wheelchair users and there’s a lift to take you up to the Club and House Kitchen.
Welcome, although the atmosphere is adults only, with time restrictions around when little Smiths can be in the Club or pool. Talk to a Smith travel team specialist about adding an extra bed or cot to your room.
It’s reassuring to know that Soho House has a detailed environmental code of practice. Recycling programmes and responsible food-waste management are in full swing at every outpost of the members’ club. Local suppliers are selected for their like-minded responsibility. In the kitchen, there’s scrutiny around how Soho House sources coffee, cocoa and palm oil, as well as sustainable seafood and responsibly reared meat. Expect a greater choice of meat-free dishes and seasonal ingredients whenever practical. Measures to assess Soho House’s carbon footprint and reduce emissions are ongoing.
A high stool beside the bar at Cecconi’s for pre-dinner drinks and a dining table overlooking the canal. We won’t prescribe which of House Kitchen’s tables you’ll prefer – once you’ve found your favourite bird’s-eye view of the city, you’ll know…
Casual is fine for day: by night, you’ll want to channel lounge-glamour that can take you from dinner at Cecconi’s to late-night drinks at the Club upstairs.
Cecconi’s is Soho House’s resident Italian restaurant set in a glamorous pillared dining room on the ground floor and open for lunch and dinner: alongside pizza and pasta, you’ll find carpaccio and tartare, cicchetti to graze on with your cocktails and grills including entrecote and brick chicken. An à la carte breakfast is served on the fifth floor at all-day restaurant House Kitchen, which is also the place for small plates including salt and pepper squid, fried cauliflower with hot sauce and miso-glazed shishito peppers, as well as mains such as roasted pumpkin with cime de rapa, toulouse sausage and lentils and coq au vin.
Soho House Amsterdam caters to all seasons with a bar on the terrace at Rooftop that’s idyllic in fine weather, and bold-print sofas and armchairs dotting the floor-spanning space at the Club indoors. Both bars serve beer, spirits and soft drinks plus an extensive choice of wines (including natural vintages).
House Kitchen’s hours are 8am until midnight (closing times vary). Cecconi’s is open from noon until midnight daily.
A dedicated menu is available from 8am until 11pm daily.

Amsterdam Centraal is about a 10-minute drive or 15-minute walk from the hotel; a cab from the station is around €10 one-way and the hotel can organise this for you.

Worth getting out of bed for
Soho House Amsterdam is in Binnenstad – a central neighbourhood of stately landmarks including Dam Square and the Royal Palace. Beyond the obvious tourist ticklist, here are our tips… For an insight into 17th-century Amsterdam, head to Our Lord in the Attic museum on Oudezijds Voorburgwal, where an old canal house conceals a Catholic church (it even has a proper church organ). Once you’ve marvelled at the Dutch masters at the Rijksmuseum (a 20-minute walk from the hotel), leave time to smell the books lining the walls of architectural wonder Cuypers Library. The historic gardens and greenhouses at Hortus Botanicus are your nearby dose of nature. Observation deck A’Dam Lookout offers eagle-eye views across the city with a café on-high and the option to harness up for a swing over the edge of the deck, 100 metres off the ground.
The kitchen gardens and greenhouses at De Kas supply around 300 different herbs, fruit and veg to this plot-to-plate restaurant, inspiring seasonal dishes such as cod with kale and hazelnuts or roasted white asparagus with kumquat and chervil. For experiential fine dining, head to Bellezza, a warehouse restaurant in a monastery courtyard in the red-light district, where drinks and dinner are served in a series of rooms, including a six-course tasting menu in the Mirror Room and cocktails at the resident speak-easy. Moon is a revolving restaurant on the 19th floor at A’Dam Lookout: it serves polished plates of international cuisine, including lobster ravioli, salt-crust celeriac, jerusalem artichoke with fig and dukkah or short rib with lettuce and capers.
High-ceilinged, colourfully tiled Café de Jaren serves breakfast and light lunches of salads or open sandwiches alongside an extensive menu of coffee and juices and has canalside tables on the terrace.
Tess Posthumus and Timo Janse have several cocktail outposts in the city, including speakeasy Door 74 andFlying Dutchmen Cocktails, where you can sip retro concoctions such as Scotch Cherry Flips, Blue Hawaiis or Dubonnet Royals in the grand surroundings of a listed 17th-century building.
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 members-only deco den in the Netherlands and unpacked their G-Star Raw denim and Viktor + Rolf fragrance, a full account of their city break will be with you. In the meantime, to whet your wanderlust, here's a quick peek inside Soho House Amsterdam…
When the Bungehuis was designed in the 1930s, little could the architect have known how well this listed building’s clean lines, generous proportions and decorative details would suit members’ club and boutique hotel Soho House Amsterdam nearly a century later. Original Delft tiles and restored stained glass are reminders of the building’s history as a trading office, bank – even a campus building for the University of Amsterdam at one point. Today’s interiors flaunt original features alongside wooden panelling, veined marble and fittingly mid-century decor (including bespoke lighting by Jan Best). No museum piece, however, this Dutch outpost of Soho House comes with a raft of mod-cons: a dedicated lounge for remote working, an all-day restaurant at the House Kitchen; and in your room – high thread count linens, Hypnos mattresses and beds no smaller than a super king. The gym and fitness suites are state of the art; a nearby corridor, still with 1930s-style flooring and original windows, is juxtaposed irreverently with a climbing wall on one side. By night, the Club on fifth is an atmospheric den for drinks before dinner (and after) – the rooftop terrace and bar prompting members to drift outdoors in summer. A calendar of member events, including DJ sets and live music, attracts local members as well as guests on weekend evenings – although perhaps retreating to the screening room to take in a movie or dining à deux at ground-floor restaurant Cecconi’s is more your scene. However you choose to spend your evenings, by day the club’s central location canalside in Binnenstad means Amsterdam’s A-list attractions are on your doorstep – another original feature we’ll gladly hang onto…
