Qantas - - Qbusiness. -

Heren­gracht 542-556, Am­s­ter­dam ho­tel.qan­tas.com.au/ wal­dor­fas­to­ri­aam­s­ter­dam

In the heart of the city’s World Her­itage-listed canal ring, the fi­five-star Wal­dorf As­to­ria is old-world lux­ury at its fifinest. The 93-room ho­tel com­prises six 17th-cen­tury canal houses (one was the head­quar­ters of a pri­vate bank you’d imag­ine in a Bond fi­film) and is a tri­umph of un­der­stated op­u­lence with mar­ble flfloors, stuc­cowork and a mag­nifi­f­i­cent 18th-cen­tury carved tim­ber stair­case. Im­pec­ca­ble ser­vice, spa­cious gue­strooms and a cen­tral lo­ca­tion make this the quin­tes­sen­tial busi­ness stay. ↓

Busi­ness fa­cil­i­ties All rooms have a desk but Pea­cock Al­ley lounge is a cosier place to take your lap­top. There are seven func­tion rooms. Wi-fi Fast and com­pli­men­tary.

Food and drink Goldfinch Brasserie’s one-hour busi­ness lunch is per­fect for quick meet­ings, while two-Miche­lin-starred Lib­rije’s Zusje Am­s­ter­dam is one of the city’s best fine-din­ers. Have a cock­tail at Vault Bar in the old bank vault.

Fit­ness and well­be­ing There’s a small, well-equipped gym (24/7) and the awarded Guer­lain Spa.

Run route For a five-kilo­me­tre loop, head north-west on Heren­gracht, turn left at Brouw­ers­gracht, left at Keiz­ers­gracht then left at Reg­uliers­gracht.

Cof­fee nearby Klaver 4 café (Utrecht­ses­traat 69) is open from 8am (10am on Sun­day).
