The Lancaster Amsterdam

Beautiful hotel in a monumental building

The Lancaster is situated in a stunning monumental building dating back to the 19th century. In April 2018, the hotel was expanded by 30 brand new rooms and The Birdhouse, our new Artis-inspired bar-restaurant, and a local gem from day one onwards. De Plantage is a pleasant, quiet and green neighbourhood, yet only a short walk away from the famous canals and and historical centre of the city. Are you looking for a cosy and cheerful room, a family room or a beautiful, spacious room for a romantic weekend? We’ve got exactly what you need!

Stayed at the Lancaster Hotel Amsterdam for three nights in May 2019. Staff where pleasant and helpful, room was clean and tidy. Only down size was the room was booked as a double but you could not open the bathroom door fully, the hotel was booked though a travel agency so was unaware how big the room was. Apart from that the hotel. Breakfast was self serving with a continental breakfast, was there was plenty of meats and cheeses. Lancaster Hotel is located in a quiet part of Amsterdam cross from the Artis Zoo, but only 15 minutes from the centre of Amsterdam by tram.

Lovely hotel with excellent staff.

Sumptuous rooms, writhing easy reach of everything. Not noisy, friendly staff, clean and easy to come and go. Would definitely stay again and no hesitation in recommending to others. Next door to some fantastic places to eat.


Great place to stay!

From the simple self-serve check in, to the friendly staff available to help, to the comfortable and clean rooms, and the convenient location, I'd recommend checking out The Lancaster Hotel for sure. We tend to visit Amsterdam en route to the UK from Australia every year, and we'll certainly be checking this place out next year!
