Take your pick from 28 unique bridge house-suites, beautifully scattered along the canals of the Dutch capital.

Featured in the New York Times Magazine, Amsterdam's SWEETS hotel is an innovative selection of 28 two-person suites scattered throughout the city...with no chain hotel-style queues to check in!

Former bridge keeper's houses set along the city's famous canals, the suites have been vibrantly transformed by a team of renowned Dutch architects, designers and artists to become, in the words of a SWEETS co-founder, "little architectural eye candies".  

Some of the suites are prized national monuments, others are set within tranquil lakeside neighbourhoods, while you'll find some located in thriving local hotspots.  Ideal for intrepid explorers, each and every suite is startlingly unique, with custom-built, space-saving furniture, dazzling bursts of colour, and warm-toned décor that complements your surroundings.  

Amsterdam is known for its quirkily cutting-edge style, and SWEETS hotel proudly showcases some of the very best design examples through its suites.  Think wraparound windows, pristine laminate flooring, integrated ensuite bathrooms, and hand-made wooden beds that cleverly masquerade as benches.

Buiksloterdraaibrug may be hard to pronounce if you're British, but you'll have plenty of scope to practise from its tourist-free setting on a serene lake in the north of the city (where your only neighbours are the local swans).  Westerdoksbrug, set close to the lively Central Station, resembles a periscope and contains a bright pink curtained bed that's sure to be a talking point!

Meanwhile, Theophile de Bockbrug is set by the buzzing Vondelpark - ideal for cyclist-watching over fresh coffee!  Or how about Nieuwe Amstelbrug, set on the Amstel river and ideal for visiting the bustling local markets?

Wherever you choose, you're guaranteed some of the very best panoramic views Amsterdam has to offer, from your exclusive position at the canal bridge.  

You won't find a kitchen inside your suite (though you will find a mini fridge, hot drink making facilities, crockery and cutlery provided) - what better excuse to head outside and immerse yourselves in the beauty of the Dutch capital? Each suite includes a neighbourhood guide that's bursting with local suggestions for shopping, sightseeing and eating.  

The ethos at SWEETS hotel is for guests to experience the real Amsterdam up close, in contemporary surroundings that present the city at its scenic best.  So if you're bored of the same bland hotel experience everywhere you go, it's time to request a bespoke upgrade. The only problem you'll encounter is deciding which tempting Sweet to sample first!
