- Excellent location in a green part of Amsterdam.
- Easy to reach by both car and public transport.
- Stunning historical building dating back to the 19th century with original details
- The Birdhouse Restaurant: the perfect place to see and be seen
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!
Mid week stay
Spent 2 nights here while visiting family with their new baby in Plantage. Comfortable room and good breakfast in adjacent restaurant. Very good location for Zoo and trams. Self service check in a bit of a pain, nowhere to sit, so it’s harder than it needs to be when you’re tired from your journey. Also the spy holes in the room doors are very high, and we are of average height, so you cannot see who is there.
Reception staff were very friendly and helpful. I like the idea the reception have a self check in point. The hotel is in a good location for restaurants and transport link. Housekeeping was a bit disappointing
We stayed at the Lancaster for three nights in February for my wife's special birthday. Once we arrived our rooms were not quite ready but the reception staff locked our luggage away in a room whilst we explored the area. Check in was easy, all done via touch screen and the receptionist was there to help should we require it. Our room was located on the second floor which was accessible via a lift or stairs. The stairs were very steep and narrow though. Our room was lovely with huge windows for lots of natural light overlooking a nice little park area at the side of the hotel. Room was overall very clean with staff changing towels daily should it be required. The room was nicely decorated and the bed was very comfortable. We stayed bed and breakfast, and the breakfast was very good. Lots of choice, in a nicely decorated, clean restaurant. The location is superb, with enough distance between the hotel and the centre of Amsterdam to not be disturbed by noisy bars. The centre is very accessible via tram just a two minute walk from the hotel. The hotel is located directly opposite a zoo and you can hear animals at night sometimes but not enough to stop you sleeping and I do sleep with the window open. Overall, this hotel is very recommended. Location, decor, cleanliness, food, helpful friendly staff. All a positive. Thank you Lancaster.
