Tivoli Hotels & Resorts made its brand debut in the Netherlands with the Tivoli Doelen Amsterdam Hotel, housed within a historic property along the River Amstel dating to the 16th century. The 81-room hotel puts guests in the heart of Amsterdam’s city center and within walking distance from popular sites and attractions.

The hotel has created a partnership with the Rembrandt House Museum (Museum Het Rembrandthuis) in which guests and groups are invited to book an exclusive dinner experience serviced by the Tivoli Doelen team in Rembrandt’s house and kitchen. A painting workshop inspired by the Dutch artist is also available for booking.
