We stayed at the Amstel for three days in June 2010 and booked the Junior Suite. This comes at the quite amazing price of EUR 650 per night (no breakfast included!) so you would expect only the best. Unfortunately the hotel did not live up to the expectations at all. Here are some of the points which are simply not... More

I booked a night here strictly because I am an ICH Ambassador and all the love this property had here on Trip Advisor. Boy was I disappointed!! It's a really old, small hotel and felt anything but luxurious and opulent to me. Like others have mentioned, I was given an average room with a small window overlooking the residential area....

I've stayed at the Amstel twice now and it's like the old friend that won't let you down with excellent service, accommodations, and food. They need to learn a little about what "high speed" internet means to sophisticated travelers in 2010. A WIFI net work that delivers 11mgps for 15 euros a day is behind the times for an otherwise...

Trapped in Amsterdam by volcanos, American Express insurance stumped up for the only family room they could find- an executive suite at the The Amstel- arrggh, the pain and suffering, but we struggled through, bouyed on by gin and tonics and long baths. The is a lovely old hotel, in the real grand tour of Europe tradition. The swags of... More

We stayed in a junior suite for four nights towards the end of March. The room was excellent, with a real coffee machine, state of the art Philips TV and genuine soak bath. The bed was very comfortable and easily accommodated a roll a way bed. The room was serviced every morning during breakfast. However the service has deteriorated (we... More

As soon as you enter this lovely Grande Dame of a hotel, you feel relaxed. Very attentive and kind staff...lovely rooms, quiet and clean and comfortable. Huge bathrooms, excellent amenities....and the restaurant! Absolutely perfect! And a very knowledgeable wait staff.

All started well, checked in for 1 night, rooms are quiet nice and big enough with a lot of old carpets and furniture, feels very classical, definitely not trendy or young but all you expect from a european 5 star property. Gym and pool are nice but very small, you can't really swim. Now to the bad, at 10 in... More

A beautiful hotel with exceptional service! From the minute we walked in we felt a higher level of class in this grand hotel. Check in was extremely pleasant and the woman who checked us in even walked us up to our room and pointed out the little extras and features of the room (including the bath tub that fills up...

Staying in Plantage & the East

Neighborhood Profile
Plantage & the East
The eastern edge of central Amsterdam provides visitors with the chance to imagine the city that Rembrandt called home (and to tour his historic house) while shopping like the thriftiest of locals at Waterlooplein’s massive flea market, or even enjoying a craft beer beside the tallest wooden windmill in The Netherlands. This verdant, serene, and stately part of town is home to Artis Royal Zoo, one of Europe’s oldest (and still best kept) zoos, and Hortus Botanicus, one of the oldest botanical gardens in the world. It's also an ideal setting for the Dutch outpost of St Petersburg’s Hermitage.
