Hotel Prins Hendrik

Hotel Prins Hendrik is a charming three-star family/business hotel with 46 rooms. The hotel has a cozy bar, a restaurant and apartments and is located in the heart of Amsterdam directly opposite Central Station. From this easily accessible location you are everywhere in no time. All rooms are equipped with a television, telephone and a bathroom.


The hotel is already several hundred years old. Until 1900, there were still eleven separate buildings with bars and upstairs the so-called "ship lodgings". These buildings are now connected to each other by means of stairs, corridors and passageways, but they have all retained their own character. This makes all 46 rooms unique with their own history.
