(23 May 2021) Minor Hotels has confirmed plans to rebrand the NH Collection Grand Hotel Krasnapolsky as the Anantara Grand Hotel Krasnapolsky Amsterdam in Autumn 2021.
The property, which will be Anantara’s first hotel in Holland, has over 155 years of history and dates back to 1866 when Mr. Adolph Wilhelm Krasnapolsky, a charismatic Polish tailor, opened a tiny coffee house on the site. As it grew in popularity, he added rooms for rent and later rebuilt it into a modern hotel.
In advance of the Autumn rebrand, the 402-room hotel will receive a soft refurbishment of the guest rooms, suites and garden. A new spa and gym will also be added.
Located in Dam Square in the very heart of Amsterdam, Anantara Grand Hotel Krasnapolsky has a private pier for boats on the Oudezijds Voorburgwal Canal, is only a 25-minute drive from Schiphol International Airport, and just 5 minutes from the Amsterdam Central Station.
Dillip Rajakarier, Group CEO Minor International, the parent company of Anantara, said, “We are delighted to be continuing the expansion of our luxury Anantara brand in Europe with the addition of Anantara Grand Hotel Krasnapolsky Amsterdam. The historic hotel will be a fantastic addition to the Anantara portfolio when it joins later this year after enhancements to the property and represents an exciting milestone for the brand as the first in Northern Europe.”
Anantara will continue its expansion in Europe later this year with the rebrand of two other hotels in Italy and Hungary – Anantara Palazzo Naiadi Rome and Anantara New York Palace Budapest which will join the luxury brand in Q4 2021.
Those two properties, in addition to Anantara Grand Hotel Krasnapolsky, will complement the existing European portfolio – Anantara Vilamoura Algarve Resort on the southern coast of Portugal and Anantara Villa Padierna Palace in Marbella, Spain.
