The Convent Hotel is a 4-star hotel with a unique history in the heart of Amsterdam within walking distance of Dam Square and the Royal Palace. The Convent Hotel rings true to its history: not one, but two convents were housed in the building in the 14th century. The original facade of the hotel once served five waterside residences, namely number 65, 67, 69, 71 and 73. In Medieval times, number 65 and 67 were convents. A Pietà dating from the year 1566 was excavated in 1985. The original was transferred to the "Amsterdam Historisch Museum", and a replica of the sculpture remains a centre piece in the lobby of the hotel. In the premises numbered 69, 71 and 73, the editing and printing departments of the daily newspaper "De Tijd" were once housed. The building, in those days located at a canal, was called the "Aemstel Castle". A tile picture of the castle and two knights, riding a boat on the river Amstel, after a poem by Vondel, still adorns the facade.
