Hotel Keizershof

Welcome to

Hotel Keizershof

Welcome at Hotel Keizershof, where personalities count

Our seventeenth century canal-house is located on the picturesque Keizersgracht in the historic center of Amsterdam. Built in 1672 by the well-known architect Jean Godin, the building was at first named ‘The Blazon of Paris’, after the city where Godin was born. 
On the Keizersgracht (‘emperors canal’) you are surrounded by history. At the opposite of our hotel once lived John Adams, one of America’s founding fathers! Between 1906 and 1920 our house was frequently visited by members of the Dutch Royal family. Our Queen Mum used to play here when she was a little girl.

You get the Rembrandt-atmosphere as you take your case up the spiral staircases. The hotel comes with free fitness –  a building over 300 years old does not feature an elevator.
Our hotel does have a comfortable lounge with colour-tv. Behind the hotel you will find our peaceful backyard with an abundance of flowers where, weather permitting, we serve you an excellent Dutch breakfast. You will find Hotel Keizershof between the Leidsestraat and the Vijzelstraat, within walking distance of all historic sites, including the Rijksmuseum and the Van Gogh Museum, Dam Square and the Amsterdam flower market.
