This original building lives up to its name; a large blue square designed by Frans van Gool. Behind the blue facade you will find a lovely 3 star hotel.
On one side of the hotel it overlooks the Erasmus Canal, and on the other side you can catch the tram to the city center.

XO Hotels Blue Square is located in Amsterdam-West, in the part that is also called Western Garden Cities. Around one corner you will find Plein '40 -'45, with a shopping center and a daily market (Tue-Sat), and around the other corner you can walk to the Sloterplas. Take a stroll, go for a run or rent a boat. There is so much more to see than just the center of Amsterdam!
