Hotel Citadel is
The Highlander

Welcome to the inspiring and colourful Highlander hotel

More than just a
name change

Hotel Citadel has welcomed guests from around the world to Amsterdam for over 25 years. The family-owned hotel is best known for its warm, friendly atmosphere, good service and great location.

Just like the dynamic city of Amsterdam, it was decided that Hotel Citadel was destined for bigger things and would undergo an exciting renovation. “To design a unique hotel that is truly memorable” was the vision of Maxine, Jeffrey and Stefan Hoogland. In early 2018 the transformation of Hotel Citadel into the inspiring and colourful Highlander Hotel began.

What's in a name

Hotel Citadel’s new name is the Highlander, this comes from the English translation of our surname, Hoogland. It also refers to the Scottish highlands, because of this, we introduced a fun Scottish element into the decor. Each floor features a different coloured tartan pattern and our bar has some pretty decent whisky’s. Enjoy a drink or have a sit down for chat in our lobby. Our staff can tell you all about where to go, what to see and what to do in Amsterdam. Ask away!
