For the 2nd time this year I enjoyed the high-tea at the most famous hotel in Amsterdam. Beautifull located on the Amstel River nearby the Carre theater. The high tea is the perfect opportunity to relax and having a chat with friends or familiy. The food for example : sandwiches - scones - foccia - wraps - all kind of... More

Beautiful property. Flawless, friendly, competent service. Great food options from La Rive, to the Brasserie, to room service. Would have given 5 stars, but the internet was not perfect. You can have free low speed internet, which is maddeningly slow, or you can pay 25 euros per day for high speed internet. Even paying for high speed, there were a... More

Beautiful hotel located by the river. Staff very friendly and took time to show me the room (only experienced this before with Gritti Palace in Venice). I was upgraded to the river view room even without any status (rarely use IHG). Room is relatively small by American standard, but ok with just one person. Bathroom has separate shower room (bath...

It doesnt get any better really. Definitely a top notch hotel in every respect. We used our points to stay and loved it. Very quaint 19c styling. We were only here for a few nights, but would highly recommend to anyone. Using points only made it better. We walked from the train station and it was about a 25 minute... More

This hotel is already for many years the top of hotels in Amsterdam. It's not modern, hip & stylish..... But it's classique, the service is very good and you really get the 5 star deluxe feeling. The butlers, valet, breakfast, rooms, swimming pool..... all seems perfect. A must go is restaurant La Rive - fine dining and nice service as... More

After several stays at truly dreadful hotels in Amsterdam, I returned to the Amstel, and was very pleased that little had changed. Indeed, while it is not cheap, I believe the prices are more in line with reality now than they were a few years ago. The decor is over-the-top classic in many ways, but this fits the historic building... More

Tucked along a canal with classic rooms, and tremendous service this place will not disappoint. The Consierge may be the best I have encountered at any hotel. The interiors are historic yet warm and the staff goes out of their way toe ensure satisfaction. Don't miss tea in the lounge off of the lobby. Great place for business people as... More

Wonderful experience. Being right on the river really gave us a taste of Amsterdam. In fact we spent an entire afternoon laying on the chaise lounges outside the spa watching the boat traffic go up and down the Amstel---a very entertaining experience. A nice location in walking distance of many sights. The room was comfortable and elegant and the concierge... More
