Amsterdam’s #1 Rock and Roll Hotel
Name any alternative contemporary artist or band and you can be pretty sure they stayed at the BackStage Hotel. No wonder: it’s perfectly suited for musicians and music lovers alike. The Backstage Bar is stuffed with guitars, lamps disguised as saxophones and drums, a pool table and—of course—Guitar Hero gear. The blackboard paneling and out of tune piano are filled from top to bottom with artist’s autographs and drawings. With 22 rooms, all equipped with an iPod docking station, The BackStage Hotel is of modest size, which makes for a very personal experience. Especially since hosts Hans, Heddy and Marcel will be happy to answer any question you might have, like which bands you should check out in the nearby Melkweg and Paradiso (the best concert halls in town, if not in the country).
The Backstage Hotel is steps away from the Leidseplein with all its café’s, restaurants and clubs. The Museumplein, with the Rijksmuseum, the Van Gogh Museum and the Stedelijk Museum, is 10 minutes away by foot, Dam Square 15 minutes. A short walk will take you to Amsterdam’s most famous park, the Vondelpark. The BackStage Hotel offers five types of rooms: the Single Room, the Double/Twin Room, the Triple Room, the Quad Room and the Five Person Room. Take your pick, and follow in the footsteps of your favorite artist, staying in Amsterdam’s #1 rock and roll hotel.
