An impressive turn-of-the-century hotel with a wonderful Art Deco interior, centrally located. The American boasts large, quiet rooms with modern conveniences, yet it still retains its original Art Deco charm. Some rooms overlook the bustling Leidseplein, others have views of the Singelgracht canal. The ground level Cafe Americain is the hotel's focal point, featuring large stained-glass windows and a beautiful Art Nouveau interior with chandeliers and murals. The Cafe has a large outside terrace with a nice view of the Leidseplein.
