Living up to Amsterdam's rich artistic heritage, the Artemis Hotel and WestCord Art Hotel make a suitably stylised home for those taking in the world-renowned galleries, cycle-strewn avenues, and bohemian haunts of this unforgettable city. The spacious rooms blend Dutch design touches with widescreen TVs and handy Wi-Fi connection. Amid arty surroundings, at the Artemis Hotel, the De Stijl restaurant creates seasonal menus using locally sourced produce, while at the Art hotel, the brasserie style restaurant serves Dutch and French cuisine that can also be savoured on the outside terrace. About a 20-minute drive from the hotels, the Gassan Diamond Museum unravels the making of sparkling jewels and exhibits a permanent collection of these carbon-based wonders.
