This post was edited on 30/03/2012 due to a name change of the hotel. The hotel is now called Doubletree by Hilton Hotel Amsterdam Central Station.

The Mint Hotel Amsterdam opened its doors at the end of May this year and is one of the newest hotels in Amsterdam. This hotel offers 553 luxurious rooms, several meeting rooms, but the nicest of all is the Skylounge!

The Skylounge is their bar on the 11th floor and offers a stunning, almost 360°, view over the city of Amsterdam. The bar is frequently visited by trendy locals, every day of the week. The interior is modern with a little twist. Sleek design with brown and white colors, completed with some red retro sofa’s . Overall a luxury atmosphere with different possibilities to sit down on some high bar chairs or chill out on the sofa’s. The long bar in the middle of the lounge makes it all complete to makes it a good sky bar.

The prices are adjusted to the view you get on the city of Amsterdam, but it is worth it. Beers are around € 4,- and wines between € 4,- and € 8,-. The bars also serve a good variety of cocktails for € 14,- each. I didn’t try the food here, but a quick look on the menu was promising. So we will come back soon.

Notable is the number of waiters. On the evening I was here, there was one waiter per 2 tables. Because it was not that crowded, it annoyed me a bit. On the other hand, the service is good.

The view makes this bar unique and a good place to have a few beers or a bite with some friends while looking over the city.

Before or after you are here, consider seeing more of the sights by Segway or by private canal boat tour!
