Have you ever imagined living on a private island all to yourself on the Amstel River, right in the heart of Amsterdam? You can live this magical experience at SWEETS hotel!

SWEETS hotel offers a new way to live like a local in style. 28 iconic bridge houses across Amsterdam’s canals have been transformed into independent hotel suites. This hotel is a radically different way to experience Amsterdam and you will love it.

Their most romantic suite is bridge house 206 – Amstelschutsluis. This historic monument (built in 1673) is only reachable by boat and has a magnificent view of the iconic 'Skinny Bridge'. Included in your booking: four boat crossings with SWEETS hotel’s captain and a late check-out at 12.00h (12 PM). If you like, you can also add breakfast and a Fill my Fridge package. With a fully equipped kitchen, Amstelschutsluis has everything you need to reside on your island for as long as you’d like!

In the mood for exploring the neighbourhood? Let the captain sail you to shore for a visit to Amsterdam’s famous Carré theatre (next to the bridge house) or have dinner and drinks at one of the many cafés and restaurants the city has to offer. The self-composed Neighbourhood Guide on the tablet in the room shows you where the local hotspots are.

 From 1673 to 2017, bridge house ‘Amstelschutsluis’ accommodated the city’s many bridge keepers. In 2017, the bridge house started a new chapter as one of SWEETS hotel’s 28 suites. As with every SWEET, Amstelschutsluis’s interior is inspired by its architectural history (17th century).

SWEETS hotel operates with a self-service key system using a smartphone app and Bluetooth. In case of questions and/or emergencies, guests can call SWEETS hotel’s reception 24/7.

Because of safety regulations, the minimum age for guests to stay at SWEETS hotel is 21.

SWEETS hotel has thought of everything to make your stay a comfortable and memorable experience. You are going to love telling all your friends about it!
