The College Hotel Review

: Built in a stately, nineteenth-century school building, The College Hotel is located in Amsterdam's fashion and museum district. It embraces its scholarly past with its heavily populated student staff, managed by more experienced professionals. Don't let the budding pupils fool you, though. Employees are friendly and attentive, as proven by the hotel's many celebrity visitors. Brooke Shields, Jamie Oliver, Janice Dickinson and even Fatboy Slim have enjoyed stays in this boutique hotel. The restaurant, located in the schoolhouse's former gymnasium, offers diners international dishes embedded with classic Dutch elements. Cocktails can be sipped in the hip, sensually colored lounge or on the terrace. Stylish design disguises the building's old roots; large windows, dark wood and romantic dim lighting pervade the hotel. Free wireless Internet, direct-dial telephones, flat-screen TVs with video on request, safes and mini-bars are provided in each of the cozy beige, white, dark brown or gray rooms. Numerous salons are available for special events and meetings, as well as weddings. Services include private car, massage, concierge, currency exchange, dry cleaning/laundry, bicycles, scooters, parking and valet.
