Just returned from a weekend in Amsterdam. The Hotel Pulitzer must be one of the best hotels in the city. Its location, right on one of the central canals, cannot be beaten. You are literally minutes from the tram stop and Anne Frank's House.
The staff at the hotel are brilliant. So friendly and professional. The restaurant was very good and the service excellent. The bar manager and his staff were outstanding. I really can't say enough about how good they are which makes The Pulitzer a true gem.
The standard rooms are small (even by European standards) and the bathrooms even smaller! Having said that, they are exceptionally comfortable with wonderful big beds and top quality linens, pillows, etc. If room size is important to you then definitely upgrade to the bigger canal view rooms to avoid disappointment
The weather during our stay was very cold and we so enjoyed returning to our comfortable, warm and cosy room. Turn down service (which you have to request) was great. Each night we came back to bottles of water at the bedside, fresh towels and the Bose Radio playing softly in the background. A little cardboard canal house was left on the pillow containing a delicious chocolate. What a great welcome back.
As I mentioned, the restaurant was very good - excellent steaks - and the wine choice equally impressive. Ask the waiter if you can try a sip of the wine before you order a bottle. They offer almost all the wines by the glass and are happy to oblige. We didn't have breakfast in the restaurant but opted instead for room service. It was the only disappointing element of our stay - over priced and poorly presented. I'm sure breakfast in the restaurant would have been better but it was also very expensive so we had breakfast out for our remaining days.
Apart from breakfast we couldn't have aksed for more. A wonderful stay at a simply wonderful hotel. If you like individuality, top notch service and comfortable rooms then I'd certainly recommend The Pulitzer.
If room size is important to you then upgrade to a bigger room.
