Although the Royal family does not live here, the Royal Palace serves as the reception palace for the family and is open to visitors for most of the year. The palace was built during the Golden Age as Amsterdam City Hall, after which it served as the residence for the first King of Holland. Here you can admire the luxurious interior, paintings and sculptures by famous artists. Exhibitions are organised several times a year and the Royal Award for Modern Painting is presented here each year.
The palace is situated on one of the busiest squares in the city, Dam Square. The most famous side streets leading to this square are Kalverstraat and Damstraat, where you will find popular attractions such as Madame Tussaud’s wax museum, de Nieuwe Kerk (The New Church) and De Bijenkorf department store.
From the hotel you easily take the tram located across the hotel. Tram 13 takes you in 8 stops (20 minutes) to the Royal Palace on Dam Square.
