“Amazing hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 weeks ago

We recently stayed here for 2 nights using unclaimed hotel points and wow are we glad we did. The staff were friendly and helpful, the location is ideal ... right next to the Amstel river, near a metro station and a 30 minute walk into the centre.

Our hotel room was on two levels, bathroom upstairs and bedroom downstairs, both were extremely clean and spacious. Tea and coffee making facilities were available as well as a turn down service at the end of the day.

If you stay at this hotel make sure you visit the Pool and Spa. Wow the view onto the river is amazing. You can enjoy a nice relax on the loungers whilst either ordering food to be brought to you or enjoying the complimentary drinks, fruits and nuts.

We would 100% stay here again and recommend it to friends and family

We spent 3 nights there on our way to Africa. The service was excellent and the staff was friendly. Our room looked over the canal and was spacious. The breakfast had a good variety of items to choose from. It was easy to walk to different sights.

Room Tip: Rooms on canal have good view views.

So if you want the best this is it. The room for Europe was very large and very nice. The restaurant was excellent, and the staff was perfect in every way.

Also note, you are right on the water and it is very charming.

If you have the money and you hate cramped hotels the InterContinental Is the place for you.

This place is amazing. You are treated like royalty. The staff is very helpful, the rooms are good and the restaurant is to die for. One night we had the Chef's special dinner, 7 courses and everyone was great.

Second visit to this hotel, and will go again. Staff a helpful, the rooms are comfortable and the health club is very good. It's only a 20 minute walk up to Dam square or de Waag and 15 minutes to the Heineken museum.

Room Tip: Ask to get a room overlooking the river if possible

We have just returned from another spectacular visit to The Amstel. While we enjoy our stays there year round, we wanted to mention to those still considering a summer visit to Amsterdam that this is the BEST place to enjoy the summer scene in the city. After a busy day touring, we relaxed on the pool terrace chaises adjacent to the canal, waving to the pleasure boaters motoring by. Before dinner we enjoyed the canalside A Bar terrace upstairs for a cocktail before heading out to dinner.
It is the best spot in the summer, hands down!!

This is the best Intercontinental I know: despite their luxury branding I generally find them somewhere between 4 and 4.5, never quite 5 but Amstel is a true luxury hotel. Very historic hotel, classic rooms (love the blue wallpaper), great food and service. Love the location on the river, very centrally located. I'm a bit bored with protracted michelin star dinners so didn't try their main restaurant but it's hard to find a better spot on a sunny day than river-facing Amstel Terraces. If you want classic luxury no need to research further, this is the best.
