Boasting a significant historic legacy and housed in one of the most recognisable flatiron-style buildings in Amsterdam, Park Centraal Amsterdam has been given a renewed lease of life through a significant rebrand.

Formerly known as Park Hotel Amsterdam, the 189-key property boasts 189 rooms, blending comfort with Dutch influences and contemporary design. 

Park Centraal Amsterdam’s ground-floor interiors have been designed by local studio, FG Stijl, and feature a blend of classic and contemporary touches. On arrival, a striking three-dimensional ceiling sculpture guides guests to a chic 1970s-inspired reception desk where special lighting, patterned oak floors and arched mirrors combine to create a sense of drama.

The hotel’s art collection includes 16 porcelain heart-shaped pieces by FOS Studio Collection, a nod to its position at the very core of all the action and culture in Amsterdam.

Occupying the hotel’s former lobby space, new hangout for eating and drinking, ‘Bar Claes’ has been designed with a sensitivity towards the hotel’s guests and in harmony with the local lifestyle.

The vibrant space features multiple corners to work or leisure. From a centrepiece marble bar to a tucked-away fireplace with sitting room-style furniture and a space to play pool, allowing groups, couples and solo travellers to each choose their desired environment.
