Standing proudly against the industrial backdrop of the NDSM Wharf, the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Amsterdam is the embodiment of the urban-chic, creative surroundings it finds itself in. Boasting rooms with a boutique-style interior and an all-round stunning view over River IJ, the striking hotel lets you escape the tourist crowds and sleep like a true local. It is a very different sight than the rest of Amsterdam: the NDSM Wharf. Located on the banks of River IJ in Amsterdam Noord – just a free ferry ride away from Central Station – this former shipyard has blossomed into an inspiring haven for locals, people on business and tourists wishing to escape the city bustle to more authentic grounds.
