By Kach Umandap - Howe September 2nd, 2016 Posted in Best Luxury Hotels, Europe, Luxury Hotel Review, Travel Blog No comments

It’s all because of their BATHROBE! Kidding aside! If you watched our live video on Facebook, you could hear me saying ‘Oh My God!’ for a number of times. That alone explains how amazing the Waldorf Astoria Amsterdam is for me. The hotel’s lobby screams elegance all over, from its grand staircase to its intricate furniture. Anyone with superb taste will fall in love with this hotel.

And speaking of love, Jonathan and I were so lucky to have been invited to stay at Waldorf Astoria Amsterdam during our honeymoon! Some would ask, is this recommended for couples after their wedding?

Well, let me tell you 5 reasons why Waldorf Astoria Amsterdam is one of the best (if not the best) hotel for honeymooners in Europe!

(You can check the latest discounted prices here or on their website)

1. Sweetest Location in Amsterdam

When you choose your hotel, make sure that its location is perfect for your planned itinerary. You wouldn’t want to book a room in an area where you need to travel hours from the tourist spots. You are on your honeymoon for crying out loud! Have some intimate time with your partner rather than waste it traveling from the famous spots to your hotel.

Walking Around Amsterdam CanalAsk anyone who booked at Waldorf Astoria Amsterdam and they would all commend the hotel’s location. It is in the heart of Amsterdam where museums, heritage spots and luxury shops are within your reach. Now you can easily buy your post – wedding presents! I’m giving you some ideas here, ladies. 🙂 But seriously, if you want to enjoy what Amsterdam has for you, get a room at this hotel.

2. Intimate Rooms perfect for Couples

We stayed in one of the best rooms within Waldorf Astoria Amsterdam which is located at the hotel’s loft. Seeing our room, I wanted someone to pinch me because I still could not believe that I’m being housed in this classy and elegant property in Amsterdam. You see, I can still remember our days in South America where we were almost broke and I actually told Jonathan I’m going to luxuriously travel around Europe. And finally, it is happening right before my eyes.

You can choose from their Guest Rooms, Suites and Accessible Rooms which range from 28 – 123 sq. m. It’s pretty hard to choose which ones to specifically book because everything is a must – try.

All the rooms include the following :

  • 42 – inch flat screen TV
  • Entertainment System
  • Wi – FI (This one impressed me so much. If you watched our live video, you can tell that the connection is sturdy and reliable.)
  • Desk
  • Bathroom TV
  • Salvatore Ferragamo Bathroom Amenities
  • Espresso Machine

3. Romantic Views from all of the Rooms

As newly-weds, you would always want to start your day the best way you could. The sight of your partner first thing in the morning is already a treat, but the views of the canal or the courtyard garden from Waldorf Astoria Amsterdam will make it even more romantic. The rooms have large windows that will help you savor the view even more.

I’m pretty much contented with what our room has to offer. But Waldorf Astoria Amsterdam was just starting. As I checked their amenities, I already wanted to pull Jonathan from our room to try these out (he was wearing his bathrobe in our room when I did the live video). 🙂

5. Passionate Service from the Staff

The staff from Waldorf Astoria Amsterdam are so amazing. You can check some of them from my video. They are so warm and so genuine. ‘Passionate’ is the most appropriate description I could give them. They deserve a slow clap for that. 🙂

Can you  believe that it was Jonathan’s first time to visit Amsterdam? The entire Dutch – experience given to us by Waldorf Astoria Amsterdam makes me want to come back once more. It was a high season when we visited Amsterdam but the hotel made us feel otherwise. It was so spacious and relaxing all in all. Some might say that the rooms are pricey. But if you weigh the class of service, the hotel’s location and all the amenities you can get from it – I would say it’s worth it.
