Voted Dutch Hotel of the Year 2013 and awarded a place in the prestigious Condé Nast list of the top-25 hotels in northern Europe, the Pulitzer offers its lucky guests pure luxury without sinking into ostentation. Long considered the boutique hotel of choice in Amsterdam, it has a superior location on the side of Prinsengracht in between the charming Jordaan and the tourist hotspots of the Old Center, and it’s right there among the retail delights of the buzzy Nine Streets . The rooms and suites are smartly furnished and decorated in soothing creams and beiges, there’s a lush spa, and the much-lauded Restaurant Keizersgracht 238 has a perfect summer-time terrace, making this place a number-one spot for romantic weekend dalliances.
