I have stayed at the Amstel three times in the last year and a half and the property merits its price and reputation. If you are on a budget, if your hotel is only a place to sleep and is not part of the romance of travel, if you burst from your lodgings at 8:30 map in hand and a... More

Wanted a luxury hotel for a special occasion, so we went on the recommendation of 2 well known travel sources, instead of listening to the gripes people had about this hotel on tripadvisor. Did not live up to a 5 star hotel, paid 420 Euros/night for 5 nights for an executive river view room on the 4th floor. Room was... More

No one made us feel welcome. From the front desk reception to the breakfast waitress to the room service staff member who never showed up with a bucket of ice. Very cold, cool staff with an attitude. However, the concierge was terrific!! and recommended a great Thai restaurant nearby....since we were very put off to walk in to the hotel... More

Lets begin with the service...amazing. Everyone was extremely nice and helpful and even provided a couple extra umbrellas for our friends who came to visit (we of course returned the umbrellas afterward). There is a very lovely man who we went to for any concierge need and I'm sad to say I didn't get his name because he was fantastic!... More

For my second trip to Amsterdam, I decided to stay in the famous InterContinental Amstel Amsterdam. I am thrilled I made this decision, as it was an excellent experience from beginning to end. I booked a standard city-view room and, as an InterContinental Ambassador, was upgraded to an executive river-view room. The room was beautifully laid-out in a classical style... More

We had a nice stay - staff attentive & friendly-enough (not super helpful however). Don't pay extra for the river view - they neglected to tell/show you in their photos that construction is occurring at the bridge right on the river in front of the hotel - a view of construction cranes was not what we had in mind. The... More

I recently spent my 40th birthday weekend in this hotel with friends which was a special and memorable stay. We managed to stay with priority club points which was great, however as a platinum member intercontinental hotels tend not to give upgrades, so we did not get a canal view. The room however was large and very pleasant. The pool... More

This is an impressive luxury hotel, in my opinion the best in Amsterdam. From the public spaces to the rooms and the starred restaurant, everything is majestic in traditional palace style. As an IC Ambassador member I was given a posh, relatively spacious river view room. The breakfast served in the restaurant was very good, and the views quite nice.... More

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

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.
