This was the fifth time I have stayed at the Amstel, and frankly I will probably never stay anyplace else in Amsterdam. It's a beautiful hotel, conveniently located, with very comfortable rooms. The beds are very cosy and the bathrooms are wonderful - full tubs and a separate large walk-in shower. Breakfast is served in the dining room of La Rive (the hotel's Michelin star restaurant) and is the standard luxury hotel fare. We ate dinner one night at La Rive, which was fabulous (see my separate review). One thorn in this rose is the charge for valet parking - 65 euros per day! It's hard to imagine how the hotel can justify such an outrageously high price, particularly when they park cars on the street in front of the hotel. If you are watching your pennies, this is one service you might want to avoid.
