Bed & Coffee
The Palamedes is located in the old west end of Amsterdam, on the Overtoom’s main street, close to the vibrant Vondelpark, spots to shop, many restaurants and cafes, and within walking distance of all the major museums and most lively neighborhoods.
The building is a small house that was built in 1890 in a traditional Dutch style, with a beautifully adorned roof. Rumor has it that the house was used as a shed (Koetshuis) for decades. Elisa, the owner renovated the house with the help of architects and designers to create a pleasant and intimate feel-at-home vibe. The name “The Palamedes” is derived from the name of the street “Palamedesstraat” where the house is located.
There is only one adjoining boutique-style suite on the first floor, which makes The Palamedes truly unique. Upon arrival, tiles with Harrogate patterns, a glass ceiling and a wide variety of tropical plants make for a warm welcome. The suite is designed with an industrial-looking floor that is heated during the winter and large glass walls that let in natural light. The suite is decorated with contemporary furniture, a designer wooden bed, a rattan armchair, a small desk, black industrial-style lighting, unique handmade artwork by artist Patrick Van Riemsdijk, patterned cushions from the Weldaad brand, soft black cotton curtains, plants, and a collection of beautiful books. The bedsheets are made of high-quality linen. The suite has a private bathroom with a rain shower, toilet, sink, and toiletry products from the Marie-Stella-Maris brand.
The Palamedes does not offer breakfast, but to start the day off right, cups of coffee and tea are made available.
The Palamedes is an ideal hideaway to explore Amsterdam.
