I was pleased to find that the poor reviews of this hotel were not true. We had a lovely superior room in a quite location at the back of the hotel (still a good veiw of the church from the window), The staff were friendly and helpful and the breakfast was good with plenty of choice. Given the location of... More

My husband and I stayed in this hotel from 7/1 to 7/9. The staffs at the front desk are very nice and helpful. The hotel is at the great location, close to Dam square and Central station. The only thing I did not like was the maid service. The first five nights, they did not change the sheets even when... More

I arrived tired on the train from Paris and was happy to see the hotel was within walking distance from the station. When I waked into the hotel I knew immediately that the huge amount of money ($440 for a superior room) was not going to go very far based on the virtually non-existant lobby. I got to my room...

Great location right on Dam square, the down side of this is it can be very noisy. There was a fair in the square when we were there and I'm glad we were on the opposite side of the hotel. Staff were very friendly and attentive, even letting me raid an empty room for a better pillow. We were upgraded... More

We have just had 4 nights at the Swissotel and I can highly recommend it as the perfect base to explore amsterdam. The location is fantastic - trams stop outside , a short walk ( 250m) from the canal cruises and the city excursion companies pick up point, 400 m from central station. Room facilities excellent - safe , coffee... More

Stayed here over Xmas 2005 and had a great time. This was my first visit to Amsterdam and I found this hotel to be in a good location. Come out of the train station and straight to the top of Damrak and you are there. The hotel is situated on Dam square and handy for all of the sights. There... More

There is no denying that this hotel is in a great location. It's on Dam Square, a short walk from the main train station and canal boat terminus. A number of trams stop just opposite the hotel meaning that you are just steps away from a connection to all parts of the city. Damrak, the street on which the hotel... More

Had an awesome time in Amsterdam as I always do. I had taken my Mother with me on this trip and she had arrived from Chicago a very weary traveler. Since no regular rooms were ready when we arrived at 10:00 Am the desk manager was kind enough to upgrade us to a granite covered two room suite for the... More

I really enjoyed my stay at Swissotel in Amsterdam. It is right next do Dam Square and the room was very nice and included a kettle for hot drinks which is unusual with European hotels. There is no lobby, you just come in & when you want to use the lift you have to use your room entry card (the... More

Booked this hotel a month before travelling, having been tempted by the fact that rooms are 'soundproofed' and location is central. The hotel only lived up to the latter of these claims. We arrived at 5pm on Friday 21st April to celebrate a birthday the following day and were allocated a room on the 4th floor, facing the side-street, just... More
