The American Hotel, locally known as the Hotel Americain, on the Leidseplein in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, is a hotel and café restaurant with a Jugendstil reading room.

History[edit]

It was built in 1898-1900 by W.Kromhout and W.G.Jansen in the Berlage style. In 1927-1928 an expansion was realized from a design by the architect G.J. Rutgers in collaboration with K. Bakker in 1927-1928. Both the expansion and the café are National Heritage sites.[1]
