Leonardo Royal Hotel, Amsterdam: A venue worth talking about

The Leonardo Royal Hotel Amsterdam is leading the conversation in contemporary events.

Amsterdam is the place to be right now for meetings and incentives. Named as the second most popular international city for MICE in 2018, demand for the destination remains high in 2019 for multiple reasons.

It’s hip, it’s happening, it’s easily accessible, it’s bursting with arts and culture, and from this Spring, there’s a new conversation starter in town as the Leonardo Royal Hotel Amsterdam opens its doors, giving planners even more reason to choose the Netherlands’ capital for their next event.

With a central location close to the beautiful Amstel river and next to Overamstel metro station, the first Leonardo Royal property in the Netherlands provides good accessibility to the RAI, the Zuidas, the city centre and Schiphol airport. The hotel has 490 contemporary and stylish rooms, and with 11 meeting rooms and a total area of 1,200m2, including a 900m2 ballroom with views over the water, event planners are spoilt for choice.

Adaptable spaces

Whatever your event, from meetings and conferences to product launches and gala dinners, the Leonardo Royal Hotel Amsterdam is equipped to host events of the highest calibre. The ballroom, which can accommodate up to 600 people, offers plenty of daylight thanks to three sides with floor-to-ceiling windows. It’s even possible to drive a car into the ballroom, making the venue suitable for automotive launch events and presentations.

Meanwhile, the adjoining 400m2 terrace is a great space for coffee breaks or drinks receptions, enabling delegates to enjoy fresh air and impressive views over the water.

In addition to the extensive conference and event facilities, the Leonardo Royal Hotel distinguishes itself through interesting networking opportunities for Royal Network members, such as inspiring speakers and benefit events. A relaxed vibe and live music most evenings make the trendy Leo Lounge the place to be and be seen, the perfect location for relaxation or good conversations after a busy day of meetings. The restaurant Vitruv takes care of your wellbeing with exquisite dishes. Or treat yourself with an uplifting coffee in the cosy coffee corner.

Interactive and innovative 

But the Leonardo Royal Hotel Amsterdam isn’t just about fantastic facilities. The focus is also on interaction. Every trip is an opportunity to find inspiration, meet people and close the business deal of your life. The hotel facilitates this whenever and wherever it can, during meeting and beyond. A great example is the creative take they have on a traditional coffee break providing a complete experience with live cooking.

Not only are the chefs there to cook up the freshest food, they also tell the story behind it. From healthy
options like vegetable sorbets to guilty pleasures such as a candy store, the breaks will satisfy your every craving. It has a selection of events packages for planners to choose from but can also create tailor-made itineraries to meet the most exacting of standards. The team consists of conversation starters, both in the culinary field and in service – making the events team your sparring partners and the chefs your storytellers. Prepare to be blown away by the dishes and meetings at Leonardo Royal Hotel Amsterdam. Now we’re talking!
