Herengracht 255, 1016 BJ, Amsterdam

Welcome to The Hoxton, Amsterdam. It’s great to have you in the house and we hope that you enjoy your stay with us whatever the reason for your visit.

To make sure you get the most out of your trip, we’ve put together this handy Survival Guide containing all kinds of bits and bobs that you might need.

From getting around town to getting those creases out of your dinner shirt. It’s all here, laid out nice and easy.

We want you to have the best stay possible, so if you need anything day or night, just dial 81 on the phone next to your bed.

The building of Amsterdam

These very walls date back to the early 17th Century, and played an important role in the city’s history when the Mayor of Amsterdam once lived here. Made up of 5 canal houses, the building is full of quirks and unique corners, with all the original facades still intact. Fruity and Floral, our concept rooms on the ground floor were where the Mayor once resided and have been designed to reflect his grandeur, whilst the courtyard in The Apartment has been created around the building’s original listed courtyard.

We’re lucky enough to have canals on both sides of The Hox. The Herengracht is often considered the most important canal in the city; Amsterdam’s richest merchants and most influential well-to-dos used to live right the way up it. Then there’s the Singel which was originally a moat around the city until it expanded beyond it in 1585.

The Little Breakfast

As they say, it’s the most important meal of the day! We’ll deliver a daily breakfast bag to each and every room for just €5 per person. All you have to do is fill out the bag on the desk, pop it on the hook outside your room, and it will be waiting for you in the morning with a little something to help you start your day off right.

For something a bit heartier, check out Lotti’s.



Lotti’s, our lively neighbourhood restaurant, features internationally inspired, brasserie-style dishes created with locally sourced ingredients, served up from an open kitchen all day long – and yes, bitterballen are on the bar menu. Whether you’re up for breakfast, a little later for brunch, or fancy a feast at any time of day, we’ve got it covered.

If you are feeling a little lazy, you can order Room Service.

Quick Tips

Dam Square is less than a five minute walk away. Make a right once you’ve exited the hotel, then another right, and you’ll be on the trams in no time. There’s also a metro station closeby on the Rokin.

Amsterdam Central is also only fifteen minutes away on foot, and will get you on trains to Schiphol, Rotterdam, Utrecht and more.

Our Reception can call up a taxi for you in just the push of a button.

We’ve got a few Hox bikes for you to use – for free – during your stay. The team at Reception will give you the low down. If they’re all out on a roll we can advise you to a nearby bike shop.

Let us be your local guide to the neighbourhood. Find our Little Map in your desk or stop by at the Takeaway Tips board next to the elevator on the ground floor. 

Everyone loves a tidy room but if you don’t require housekeeping service or a towel change daily, let us know and will keep that in mind. By skipping your towel change we can save on water and transportation. Want to find out what we are doing for a better planet? Check out our Environmental Policy Statement and keep an eye out on our socials as we are about to launch The Good Stuff.

It goes without saying, WiFi is free for all guests at The Hox. And if you’d like to make a good ol’ fashioned landline call, your first hour is free per day to pretty much anywhere except the moon.

Read all about it! You can find local news, magazines and podcasts on this link to make sure you’re up to date on what’s going on in the world. Just make sure you are connected to the guest wifi to access.

Dial 81 on your phone and we’ll bring an iron, board and steamers straight up to your room. Simple.

For the Gym Bunny there’s no shortage of great gyms and cool studios around us. Hit up Reception to get discounted day passes to our favourites.
