(18 September 2022, 13:07 +07) Minor Hotels has expanded its portfolio of Anantara hotels in Europe with the opening of the Anantara Grand Hotel Krasnapolsky in Amsterdam, Holland.
Overlooking Dam Square and facing the Royal Palace, the hotel, which has more than 155 years of history, is in the final stage of an extensive renovation as part of its rebranding to the Anantara brand. The hotel previously operated as the NH Collection Amsterdam Grand Hotel Krasnapolsky.
As part of that transition, the 402-room hotel features refurbished rooms and suites, as well as a brand-new Anantara Spa and fitness facilities.
The building dates back to 1856, the year that a Polish tailor, Adolph Wilhelm Krasnapolsky, first opened a coffee house on the site. As the café grew in popularity, he added rooms for rent and later built it into a modern hotel.

Today, the property celebrates its history proudly with black and white images from the past exhibited throughout, and the celebrated bar, The Tailor, paying tribute to the original craftsmanship of Mr. Krasnapolsky.
Unique dining experiences at the hotel include fine-dining restaurant The White Room, under the helm of former three-Michelin star chef Jacob Jan Boerma, whose refined, modern dishes use the freshest local ingredients from Netherlands.
Grand Café Krasnapolsky and The Champagne Room, both boasting direct frontage onto Dam Square, offer classic, elegant dishes with a contemporary twist, alongside an extensive selection of Champagnes by the glass.
The Tailor bar pays tribute to the hotel’s founder and craft with bespoke cocktails amidst warm décor.
Breakfast is served in the iconic inner Wintergarden, instantly recognisable by the magnificent 19th century glass roof.
The newly added Anantara Spa blends Thai techniques with premium products, including Swissline a results-driven brand found exclusively in Amsterdam at Anantara and known for its cellular therapy experts and passion for skin biology. In addition, the spa works with Dutch brand, hannah, whose mission is to bring damaged skin back into balance and slow down aging.
The spa features three treatment rooms and Finnish, wet and infrared saunas, while the hotel’s new gym is equipped by Technogym with the latest cardio and weights technology and a rotating climbing wall to challenge guests.
For meetings and conferences the hotel can host from 10 to 1,500 guests. The Wintergarden, a 19th century glass covered inner garden, has been the choice of brides throughout the generations and continues to be a sought-after venue for 21st century couples.
Anantara debuted in Europe in 2017 with the launch of Anantara Vilamoura Algarve Resort in Portugal, followed by Anantara Villa Padierna Palace Resort in Marbella, Southern Spain. The brand continues its expansion in Europe in iconic properties such as Anantara Palazzo Naiadi Rome and Anantara New York Palace Budapest, with additional properties to come.
