We booked the Swissotel direct online with the hotel (as recommended bya previous Trip Advisor report) for a 4 night weekend stay. My husband and I took his mother for a sightseeing trip to Amsterdam to celebrate her 85th birthday. We wanted a central hotel with good facilities. We obtained a business rate with breakfast and a guaranteed refurbished room,... More

The hotel was very central (off Dam Square and near the central railway station), but not on or particularly near to a canal. Decor was bland and businesslike, with no sense of being in Holland. For business use, it was fine (and there's a free computer room for guests on the 1st floor), but if you're there for tourism you... More

We stayed in room 609 at Swissotel from 9th to 11th August to celebrate our 20th anniversary. The location is superb right by Dam square with many great bars and restuarants only a short walk. It only took about 15 mins to walk from central station. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly and our room was excellent with all... More

The hotel was very clean and tidy and the staff very helpful. Myself and our two children had two rooms and I was pleased with the hotel. The only downside was that for a family it was to close to the red light district and at night the area outside was a scruffy. Overall I found Amsterdam intersting but four... More

After staying at Swiss Hotel Berlin, i must admit, i had high expectations. On entering the lobby i was sure i'd made the rights choice, how wrong could i possible be?! As the door to my standard room swung open, my excitement disappeared, my eyes welled up & i couldn't stop the tears! The walls were dull & stained with... More

The best hotels, to my way of thinking, are those that enhance your visit to a city. An impeccable hotel with comfortable beds, plush towels, nice art and a friendly staff is great, but if the hotel is isolated, disconnected from the heartbeat of the city and doesn't in any way accentuate your understanding and enjoyment of that city, then...

We stayed for three nights during July - the hotel is in a great location, just yards from Dam Square and a short, easy walk from the train station. The standard room on the 4th floor was a reasonable size for a city centre location and appeared to have been recently refurbished. Free safe, iron, etc. Bathroom was very nice... More

We stayed in this hotel for 3 nights to celebrate my birthday in June 2005. The hotel is in a brilliant location, ideal for the shops, Dam Square, Red Light District, boat cruises, restaurants, and its a 10 minute walk from Central Station and about 30 minute walk to Van Gogh museum. We had a deluxe, recenty renovated room which... More

My husband and I stayed at the Swisshotel for three nights in March 2005, over Easter weekend so maybe that is why I cannot give this hotel rave reviews. Everyone was extremely busy. We reserved a junior suite and although I'm not sure what I expected, it was below the standard I was expecting for the price we paid. My... More

I too arrived at the Sofitel with high expectations. The website photos looked great and the staff had responded to all of my email requests quickly and graciously. Traveling with friends, we booked a superior room at a rate of 185E and an executive suite at a rate of 295E. for a four night stay. I arrived around 10am, pleased... More
