This is a great hotel. The first time that I stayed here I got upgraded, but even the ordinary rooms are lovely - stunning views over the canals. Staff very friendly, good food and accommodating re snacks at odd times of day. However it is very expensive. There seems to be little middle ground in Amsterdam hotels, nice, but very... More

We have stayed in various InterContinental hotels over the years, but the Amstel in Amsterdam is by far superior to all. Even with ongoing area construction along the river, the view was spectacular. The amenities and service by the staff of the hotel were first rate, And we were upgraded to a suite due to an oversight by the hotel... More

The Amstel may be a very grand and historic hotel. With its stucco exteriors and gilded interiors, one may assume its service to be exemplary. But it was not to be. I was booked at the Penthouse Suite, which promised a 24 hour room service, which is a fairy tale. Although the room was ornate and luxurious as promised, it... More

I like the InterContinental chain, but the properties, especially in Europe, are inconsistent. A problem to be aware of if you have not visited Amsterdam is that there is very little middle ground for hotels. The hotels tend to be either nice but extremely expensive or affordable and not so nice. I thought the Amstel was very nice, but would... More

Stayed in this hotel with my wife for a day. We wanted to spend a day in Amsterdam for shopping, dinner and theater as we had an early morning flight out of Schiphol airport. As a platinum member we got upgraded to a room with a canal view. The hotel is beautiful, staff impeccable and the room superb. Beautifully decorated... More

I have stayed several times on business at the Amstel Hotel as I go to Amsterdam 2-4 times per month. The hotel is a nice old hotel, somewhat faded but I was willing to overlook that as the rooms were quite spacious by Amsterdam standards and I like to get the Intercontinental points. However, my last stay here was a... More

This smaller hotel was perfect for our time in Amsterdam. We had every bit of service we could want but without the snootiness of staff I've sometimes found in high-end hotels. Lovely large room on the second floor and although it overlooked a small street and had major arteries (and construction) on the intersecting streets, we never heard any noise.... More

While we rate the Intercontinentals higly the Amstel was the pick of the Hotels we stayed in during our travels through Europe - with the Westin in Venice as close second. Great staff, meals, concierge especially very good. Recommned the private cruise on the canals. We had lunch and was a thoroughly enjoyable experience. The cyclists are a menace so... More
