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.

I spent eight nights with my adult family over New Years at the Amstel Hotel and we all had a wonderful time. Prior to arriving, the lovely Monique in reservations helped me to organize our rooms and after arrival the excellent concierge/s Aad and his team helped with our stay. We have stayed at the Amstel many times since 1989,... More
