For years, the Anco Hotel has been a constant in Amsterdam’s gay hospitality industry. After fourteen years, the current owners have taken over once again and haven given the hotel a thorough make-over. Modern and reliable, that is the Anco Hotel in the year 2011.

If you ask people in the city about the Anco Hotel, you hear the wildest stories. Especially the former hotel bar used to be very popular because of its late opening hours.

After bars and clubs closed, many locals went to the Anco Hotel for a night cap or some additional entertainment. The hotel was particularly popular in the leather scene, but even though most leather men still know how to find it, the clientele is much more diverse nowadays. With their team, the owners Karl and Josef are running the hotel now and have transformed it into a modern gay hotel that is all about customer service.

That the Anco Hotel underwent a substantial make-over is hard to miss. New beds and mattresses, a fresh and well-kept interior, and extra facilities such as wireless internet (free for guests) and pay-TV, are just some examples of the modernization by the management. But that doesn’t mean a stay at the Anco Hotel has to be expensive. The hotel has fixed rates and offers clients discounts during low-season. The hotel guests also have a choice between different formulas: a private room, a dormitory, or a studio with private shower.

According to the Anco team, the Anco Hotel is all about the guests. They should get the feeling they can be who they want to be.

The hotel still is gay men only, and the client’s life-style is taken into account. For those who meet an interesting man in town, it is no problem bringing him to the room and have breakfast with him in the morning.

Cruising remains possible, and the guests can get to know one another at the hotel bar or on the cosy patio, possibly with a drink or a snack (the bar is open from 9:00 am to 10:00 pm).

Of course, extensive information on gay life in Amsterdam is available, and the hotel staff is willing and ready to give tips and hints for an ideal stay in gay Amsterdam.

The Anco Hotel, in between the Red Light District and the city center, welcomes guests from all over the world and of all ages. Because of its modernization, it is no wonder the Anco Hotel gets great reviews and very high scores, for example on the well-known travel website

More than once, people state that the Anco Hotel offers its guest “a second home,” something the Anco team should be proud of!
