Roughly 23 days ago I stayed at this hotel with my friend.As soon as I came in, hotel interior was very awesome at all costs.

We stayed for three nights at the Intercontinental. I like the old world aesthetic and charm of the hotel. Check in was obviously done by a trainee. They need more seasoning at their position but that will hopefully come with time. Our Virtuosity Travel Agent had requested an upgrade for us from a Junior suite but he didn't seem to... More

We've stayed in many Amsterdam hotels, but the experience at the Amstel is unique. From its beautiful Atrium with views of the canal where high tea is a world-class experience, to the well-appointed rooms and service, it is the kind of experience that let's you know that you are in Amsterdam's most rarefied hotel. The staff seemed to all know... More

Sadly, we had a bad experience at this hotel - we booked our reservations well in advance and even called overseas to personally speak to the hotel to guarantee we had the room we requested.

To say the hotel is 5 star, is cutting it short. The view, the staff, the food. Anything I asked for magically happened. The driver that picked us up, Duncan the concierge, the doorman Marcos. All were like they came from central casting. I called for a bucket of ice, and within 4 minutes, it was at my door. It... More
