Breakfast at Pillows Hotel Amsterdam

A new hotspot

When a new hotspot opens, you have to check it out right? When I heard about the new Pillows Hotel opening in Amsterdam I knew I wanted to pay them a visit. Pillows Anna van den Vondel in Amsterdam is a ‘one of a kind’ location which gives you an intimate, personal experience together with professional service.

Pillows Anna van den Vondel

After a massive construction of one and a half year the brand new Pillows Anna van den Vondel hotel opened January 23rd 2017. The hotel is housed in restored 19th century buildings and is located at the beautiful Vondel Park in Amsterdam. The private garden and living area is what brought me to this great place.

The Living is what you first see when entering the hotel. Beautiful, large windows fill the space with fresh daylight while overlooking the private garden. If you are lucky you can see the horses from the nearby riding school walk bye while enjoying your first cup of tea of the day. We enjoyed the warmth of the rising sun while being seated at the large windows. The hotel is furnished with velvet chairs and couches in fresh pastel shades. Together with marble tables you find yourself in a beautiful furnished area which supports the hotels calming ambience.

In my opinion it is always a great idea to try out a breakfast at a hotel. It says a lot about their vision and quality if you ask me. We started with fresh fruits (strawberries, raspberries, blueberries and grapes) together with delicious yoghurt and granola (topped with walnuts and blueberries). Everything at the hotel is freshly prepared by its kind staff. They really try their very best to cater to all your needs while enjoying the Pillows hotel. When you plan on visiting Pillows Hotel, make sure to try one of their delicious tea’s, they are very delicious.

Pillows Anna van den Vondel is a great place to start your day and meet with one of your close friends to catch up. The calm and relaxed environment is ideal when you want to discuss business or are looking for a place to unwind after a busy day in the city.

    Het lijkt me een bijzondere ervaring om in z’on hotel geweest te zijn. Wist niet dat Nederland zulke bijzondere hotels rijk was. De grote ramen lijken me erg fijn, ik ben altijd wel een fan van veel licht.

    Your breakfast looks very…tasty and healthy. The hotel’s owner does respect his/her clients, I’ll have in mind when I’ll visit Amsterdam.

  18. April 13, 2017 / 9:22 pm

    Oh YUM, that looks so tasty! You really must’ve enjoyed that 🙂

  19. April 13, 2017 / 9:31 pm

    I completely agree. Whenever I am trying out a new place, I prefer checking out their breakfast. That’s what makes or breaks it for me! Lovely pictures, by the way 🙂

    Looks and sounds like a fab place – another to keep in mind for our next trip! I agree, hotel breakfast says a lot about the place 🙂

    I love to go out for breakfast. That’s something we are not really used to in NL. This hotel at the Vondelpark looks great

  24. April 14, 2017 / 8:42 am

    Breakfast is my absolute favourite meal of the day and when I’m staying at hotels I always always make sure I’m up for breakfast cause the spreads are so good!

  25. April 14, 2017 / 8:50 am

    This place sounds very good! I love hotel breakfasts because very often they have beautiful and tasty food from fruits to yoghurt and muffins. Especially hotels with 4-5 start have usually superb breakfasts. 🙂

  26. April 14, 2017 / 1:23 pm

    Ziet er heel stijlvol en mooi uit. Ik baal altijd dat er vrijwel geen hotels in mijn buut zijn, lijkt me zo leuk om er eens te eten!

  27. April 14, 2017 / 3:44 pm

    I haven’t tried out breakfast at hotels much, unless I was actually staying there. The food does look good though. I will remember this.

  28. April 15, 2017 / 10:42 pm

    Ik had er nog nooit van gehoord maar het ziet er een bijzonder gaaf plekje uit!
