Are you a citytripper? Then Amersfoort should definitely not be missing from your bucket list. Because this burgundian city with its historic features is bustling! There is a wide choice of restaurants and cafes, you can shop extensively in one of the many unique stores and there is cultural beauty to marvel at.
If you want to see everything, one day is really not enough. Therefore, stay overnight. These five hotels are perfect for an overnight stay during your city trip.
Long John's Pub & Hotel
If you want to feel like a real local, this is the ideal place. With one step outside the door you are in the middle of the lively city center. Long John's Pub & Hotel is in a lively street and adjacent to Lieve Vrouwenplein with its bustling hospitality industry. For a hotel in the middle of the city, the surroundings are remarkably green, thanks to the many large trees surrounding the hotel. As far as I am concerned, this adds to the atmosphere.
Breakfast is served downstairs in the cozy pub, the bright conservatory or outside on the terrace. Good to know: the rooms are well insulated. So you have the bustle of the city, but not the noise if you want to sleep in after a night out.
Hotel Vita Nova
Do you love adventure and are looking for something unique? Then an overnight stay at the charming Vita Nova ship hotel is highly recommended. Be lulled to sleep by the rocking water in a ship's cabin, with all the comforts of a modern hotel room. In the cozy hold you can have breakfast, play games or have drinks.
Fun fact: the Vita Nova is one of the most completely preserved ships of its kind in Europe. It is located in the middle of De Nieuwe Stad, within walking distance of the historic city center and near the Eemplein. Plenty of opportunity to get out and about. Do you really want to feel like a captain (or pirate)? Then choose the ship's room in the forecastle. You can sleep there with 2-3 adults or a family with two children. Ship ahoy buddies!
Lodge De Gaaper
De Gaaper is located in a beautifully restored national monument in the middle of Amersfoort's historic city center. There is a homely atmosphere and a wide choice of rooms. Trivia: the building is the oldest stone house in Amersfoort and you can see that in various details. Once it housed (among other things) a pharmacy. As a reference to that, they have collected a beautiful collection of gapers that you can admire.
Downstairs in the cozy coffee house -and on the terrace in nice weather- you can have breakfast or enjoy a cup of coffee. Being right in the center, you can enjoy people-watching.
Mercure Hotel Amersfoort
In the middle of the City Centre, between the medieval city center and the industrial railroad complex, you will find four-star Hotel Mercure. Already upon entering, the warm, dark colors give a feeling of luxury. And that chic feeling is not just limited to the colors. You can rent several rooms there and make it as luxurious as you want. All rooms have a rain shower, but if you choose a suite, you can bubble in the double whirlpool tub. And so there are more options to make your overnight stay even more comfortable.
Mercure is within walking distance of Eemplein, De Nieuwe Stad and the bustling city center. Tip: choose a room with a city view. Because you are so high up, the view is really fantastic!
Just outside the city center, near the impressive forest area Klein Zwitserland you will find the luxurious Amrâth Berghotel. Together with the monumental garden and the overgrown sun terrace, you will enjoy a wonderful relaxing environment here that is still close to city amenities.
Rental bicycles are offered at the reception and free cycling routes are available. Ideal for active explorers. Do you like to eat out luxuriously? Then you can dine at the Bergpaviljoen which is located opposite this hotel.
