History

Tearoom
1840

On the corner of Stadhouderskade and Hobbemastraat, a small tearoom opened its doors. This was even before the opening of the world-famous nearby Vondelpark, which followed 25 years later.

Parkzicht
1880

The tearooms was transformed into a hotel named Parkzicht (Dutch for ‘Park Sight’). Years later, coinciding with the 1928 Olympic Games in Amsterdam, the hotel expanded to 90 guest rooms, multiple event rooms, a bowling and billiard area and a bar. In 1940, the building was painted black to protect it from air attacks in WW2. The hotel has retained this colour ever since.

Changes
1945-2006

The hotel lived many reincarnations, changing names from Parkzicht to The Inn At The Park and later Park Hotel.

Park Hotel 2008-2019

After joining Sircle Collection, the hotel reopened in 2008 after undergoing a complete renovation. MOMO Restaurant, Bar & Lounge launched later in the year to widespread acclaim.

Park Centraal
2019-now

Sircle Collection transformed Park Hotel into Park Centraal to capture the spirit of the property’s rich 180-year-old heritage in a renewed, inspiring way. Guest rooms and meeting spaces took on new life with fresh colours and textures. They also introduced Bar Claes, a social hub for food and drinks on the ground floor. We look forward to sharing many more milestones with you in this storied property.
