This hotel is currently undergoing some maintenance which was unfortunate but I must say it wasn't too disruptive. The lounges and bars are an absolute delight with marvellous views over the Amstel. It was fun enjoying a leisurely Sunday afternoon tea watching the bridges go up and down to allow traffic on the water to pass along. (As dark draws... More

The Intercontinental in Amsterdam is in many ways my favorite hotel. Inside it’s calm and elegant and the service is faultless. I did overhear one older and refined guess expressing surprise when the taxi driver had explained that they were going to the Intercontinental. She was soothed by the receptionist who explained that yes, they were part of the chain,,... More

Wow, wish I had stayed here. I came in with colleagues for drinks and lunch ahead of a business meeting, and enjoyed it very much. We opted for sandwiches and they came in hollowed out loaves - very amusing! They were really very good as were the other light snacks we were offered. It is a magnificent hotel - everything...

We stayed here for a 50th birthday anniversary. We booked 3 rooms on points as Platinum IHG members. Staff was excellent with making the reservation. I arranged that roses were delivered to the room. Informed the reception twice that they had to take care that the flowers would be in the room for my partner. During check in the reception... More

I recently stayed at the IC Amstel on the last night of my honeymoon, whilst on an overnight transit stop in Amsterdam. I stayed on priority club points, but unfortuantely was not given an upgrade which would have been appreciated as a platinum member. Nonetheless, the standard room we stayed in was spacious and beautifully appointed. The health club and... More

Stayed two midweek nights. Only about 90 rooms, so even when full, which it was both nights, one is not inconvenienced. It was busy because Lady Gaga and her people stayed here for some nights whilst performing at Bijlmer's new Ziggo Dome concert hall. Very impressive building on banks of Amsel River, with easy access in Amsterdam to anywhere you... More

This hotel is beautiful. Set on one of the many canals in Amsterdam, this hotel is extremely well maintained. Everything about the property is great - location, service, facilities, restaurants. Value depends on what kind of deal you get... I paid 360 Euros, but the normal price shown on their Internet site was over 500 euros. At 360 a good... More

Stayed here for two nights for a weekend visit to Amsterdam. On the map you may think that the hotel is situated quite a way out from the centre of Amsterdam, but don't let that deceive you. The hotel is ideally located, being situated in a quiet, leafy part of town, but only being a short walk into the central... More

The Amstel is one of the great hotel experiences in Europe. Everything from food, to ambiance, to architecture and decoration, to location is the best. There is only small one downside of this majestic, old-world hotel, the mini-bars are not mini. You must purchase a full size bottle of alcohol. If you would like just one drink or possibly two,...
