Outstanding in all respects - what a pleasure to stay here. The hotel staff get it just right at all levels: welcoming, friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. And turning to the inanimate aspects of this very fine and longstanding world class hotel, the architecture and furnishings and presentation throughout are pretty impressive too. 'Wonderful' is the all-embracing phrase, and that includes... More

This hotel is a TREASURE. The premises are impeccable, beautiful, magnificently furnished and cosy. The suite we occupied had a view overlooking the Amstel river and we felt like we were in a doll house. Everything was simply perfect. The SPA is excellently furnished, with a sauna, a steam bath, a cooling pool, two different kinds of fancy showers, a... More

We went to Amsterdam for a short break and stayed here for two nights. Among InterContinental Hotels, this one is 'a cut above the rest' in terms of quality. We were given an upgrade to a corner suite which helped of course. The hotel itself is steeped in history and you get a sense for how people lived on the... More

The Amstel Bar & Brasserie is more informal and cozy than Le Rive restaurant with brasserie-style dishes. It has warmth, rich, wood-paneled walls and blue leather seating and floor-to-ceiling windows that offer stunning views of the river below and the passing parade of sailboats, water taxis, rowboats, and sloops.

I have stayed in dozens of hotels in Europe over the years, and have just discovered the Amstel in the last 2 years or so. I don't know how Anita does it but the hotel is a perfect balance of elegance with a homey touch. While many 5 star hotels - the absolute worst the Savoy in London - are... More

This is a wonderful hotel on the Amstel River. Location is great; easy walk to attractions and transportation. The staff are knowlegable, friendly and very helpful. I was upgraded to a King Executive room with a river view. The room was large and well appointed. I would recommend this property to anyone visiting Amsterdam who enjoys five star luxury.

this place lives up to its billing. 5 star and expensive! It's the place where Obama, The Rolling Stones, Tina Turner etc stay when they are in town.
