Founded by Dr. Samuel Sarphati, a prominent doctor in the 19th Century, the Amstel Hotel was created as an architectural landmark - a palace on the Amstel River banks - that would put Amsterdam on the international map and encourage visitors to the city. Built in collaboration with Cornelis Outshoorn, one of Amsterdam's most progressive 19th Century architects, the hotel was inspired by some of Europe's most famous buildings. With beautiful detailed arches of the architectural style of the 'Golden Age' in the richly decorated lobby, the hotel has attracted many prominent figures and guests looking to experience the glamour of the Amstel Hotel since it first opened its doors on 27th April 1867.

The Amstel Club was founded on 3 June 1976 and has been situated in the Amstel Hotel ever since.

In 1976, it was originally intended as a gentlemen's club, but the club began welcoming both male and female members in 1984.



The renovation of the Amstel Hotel was completed in 2017. One of the most iconic buildings on the banks of the River Amstel has been fully retained and its design, dating back to 1867, is kept with the founder's original vision. Restorers used the original colour and design palette by restoring the balustrades and iconic architectural ornamentation that define this much loved landmark.

The club room on the balustrade of the Amstel Hotel is furnished with several seating areas and has an adjoining terrace.

For many members, the ambiance of the Amstel InterContinental Hotel appears to be one of the reasons to become a member of our Club.

Members enjoy certain privileges in the hotel in the form of discounts and can also make use of the facilities of a number of sister clubs abroad.
