Location wise, we got you covered.

Surrounded by museums, housed in a historic building. Hotel Fita is ideally located for all guests. For travellers that want a comfortable night sleep in a quiet neighbourhood and for those that want ready-access to all cultural options Amsterdam has to offer.

Hotel Fita back in the days

The history of the building dates back to 1902. A set of six houses was built and designed by Foeke Kuipers, combining the traditional Amsterdam style with ‘Berlage’ influences. All six houses served as residences, but the corner house was different. Its first residence ran the Institute for Electromagnetic Therapy, allegedly helping people with rheumatism, migraines or writing cramps. 

In the 1950’s, a Danish couple took over the residence, transformed it into a hotel and named it after their daughter. Hotel Fita, the current Dutch owners wouldn’t name it any other way. 

Hidden old style elements

The side wall of the hotel is decorated with a traditional tile panel, from which the designer and meaning are undiscovered yet. In memorial to the victims of the Holocaust in World War II, Stolpersteine are paved in the streets of the former house owners all over Europe. These golden concrete stones of 10 x 10 cm with a brass plate on top were inscribted with the names and life dates of victims of the Nazi extermination. There are 655 Stolpersteine in Amsterdam, Jan van Luijkenstraat has one on its pavement.
