Once you have explored all the city has to offer, step inside Hilton's iconic hotel for a warm welcome and a rich heritage of captivating stories. Of all fascinating tales it has to tell, Hilton Amsterdam is probably best known for being the home of the famous John Lennon and Yoko Ono bed in for peace in 1969. You can even book the very room they stayed in and relive one of the most talked about moments of 20th century history for yourself.
Hilton Amsterdam was the first international hotel to open in the Netherlands. Opened by Mr. Conrad Hilton himself in 1962, the hotel has been a monumental part of the neighbourhood ever since. The distinctive V-shape of the hotel is cantered on the axis of the Apollolaan and Minervalaan, the two main roads of the south area of Amsterdam.
Considered the Father of modern architecture prominent Dutch architect Berlage designed Plan Zuid, a district on which baseline Hilton Amsterdam is famously built. The axis of the two main roads of Plan Zuid runs through the hotel lobby as a fascinating focal and talking point.
On March 24 1969, a white Rolls Royce pulled up in front of the hotel. John Lennon and Yoko Ono stepped out. They booked suite 702 and shortly afterwards all furniture, except for the bed, was removed. This marked the start of the famous "Bed-in" for peace, where they spent a week in bed to protest against the Vietnam war.
