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

We are at last out after a 4-day unpleasant stay. The hotel is far below the level we expected for the amount of money we paid. The room was very modestely furnished and so was the old-fashioned bathroom. Internet connection was out of order and satelitte channels were limited. The hotel has no lobby and the breakfast was less than... More

we stayed at the Swissotel for 2 nights, and enjoyed the central location, friendly staff, and free up grade to a junior suite. The suite was large, tastefully decorated, and had every amenity that was needed for a pleasant stay. We would certainly reccommend this hotel to anyone visiting Amsterdam.

I stayed at the Swissotel Amsterdam last week for 8 days for vacation. It was my first trip to Amsterdam and I wanted to be close to all of the attractions. This hotel is in the heart of Dam Square, 10 minutes from Centraal Station and everywhere else we wanted to go. The rooms were cleaned twice a day and... More

I am a frequent traveler to Amsterdam. For my latest trip, I choose the Swissotel Amsterdam. From the moment I walked into the room, I was not thrilled...This was a quiet weekend in Amsterdam, but my so-called "junior suite" was not up to par. The room was in the rafters, small, carpeted and not at all like the attractive room... More

I and my travel companions spent 5 nights at the Swissotel Amsterdam in March 2006. All in all, this was a good pick for us. The location could be no better, what with Dam Square and the city's trams at the hotel's front door. There are tons of shopping and dining options within a very short distance of the hotel....

I had a very nice stay at this hotel. Sprang for the junior suite which was enormous by Dutch standards. The glass bathroom is neat and the view onto Dam Square is outstanding. The staff really is wonderful. They let me check in many hours early which I greatly appreciated. The free internet access is a real boon. Unlike the... More
