Sir Adam Hotel in AmsterdamImage by jeffziebs

Start your romantic holiday in Amsterdam with booking a romantic hotel! Our recommendation is gorgeous Sir Adam Hotel, that is located in Adam Tower in the center of Amsterdam. 

Sir Adam Hotel is one of the 60 best Amsterdam hotels and has pretty good reviews. Standing tall over the Canals, it provides great 360 degree views over Amsterdam center. The Butcher Club is a nice place to eat with American cuisine, conveniently located inside the hotel.

Tip: It’s better to choose a room facing the city because it's more quiet.

Sir Adam Hotel is also where the A'Dam Lookout Swing is located - probably, a must-do activity for couples. In February, the weather might be a bit chilly... so if you go there, wear something warm to enjoy the view and not freeze out!
