“Unexpexted pleasure”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2013

First and foremost, the "Floor 17" restaurant had the best hotel food I have had in a long time. I don't think anyone had a bad dish. I can't believe that I am saying "I looked forward to eating at the Ramada." but it is true. We ate there a lot because the weather was bad and there is not much in the vicinity of the hotel. The rooms were modern and nice enough. Kind of a silly shower design that can't keep water off the floor, but the staff was very courteous and knowledgable. You can catch the tram out front or about a 10min walk to the metro. Cabs were never more than 5 minutes. I would stay here again, but if you are going as a tourist I would look for something a little closer in.

Room Tip: Nothing block on any side but you could get nice city view from two side... basically north and east...

Stayed in Feb this year with my mum for 3 nights and had a very pleasant stay. Very modern and up to date rooms as hotel new from end of last year, with lovely bathroom large walk in double shower. Very comfy bed and flat screen tv, had breakfast included which was plently to choose (pancakes are a must try - yum!). Friendly staff, we got picked up from the airport with free shuttle bus and return was only 5 euros - bargin. Hotel is not in centre of Amsterdam however the tram is 5 mins walk from hotel and this proved to be a nice way to get to centre (about 20 minute ride) and cheap as we got a 3 day pass. Me and my mum had a room each at this hotel and with breakfast, for 3 nights and paid less than £100 in total - excellent value, would stay again.

Beautiful hotel, I stayed here with my partner for a weekend and would definitely come back for another visit. The rooms were tidy, clean and very comfortable. The breakfast was brilliant, with loads of choices available. The main restaurant is situated on the top floor of the hotel with breathtaking views of the city. It was really easy to get into the city centre with the tram station being right outside the hotel, and a day pass for the tram was really useful and affordable.

We would stay here again!

Nice rooms but a bit small however has everything that you need. Very good restaurant on the top floor but a little pricy. Location is 15 minutes from Dam Square via the tram which is right outside the hotel complex.

We stayed here on Sept. 24, 2013 after our flight back to the States was cancelled. Considered an airport hotel although it's a good 15 minutes away. We got an executive room #516, and it was very, very nice with floor to ceiling windows on 2 of the walls. A large very edgy room.....West Elm looking done in browns and limeish green. Large bathroom with double sinks, large tub and large shower. Highly recommend.

Room Tip: Be sure to ask for an executive corner room

We enjoyed 24 hours in Amsterdam. The hotel is well situated; on a short distance from Schiphol Airport and very close to the inner centre (10 mins by bike/tram (stop around the corner)). Good bikes are for rent at the reception. The restaurant Floor17 has splendid 360 views, overlooking Amsterdam and surroundings. On a clear day like we had you could see as far as the dunes along the Dutch coast. Rooms are well decorated and equipped. The hotel on a whole has a pleasant atmosphere and in combination with the friendly staff it was a pleasure to stay here. Do go for a drink in the bar at the 17th floor at the end of the evening. You will not regret!

Our stay at the Ramada was wonderful we were greated by Celeste who on arrival upgarded us to an executive room (great start). A short 10 min tram ride (#13) gets you to Dam square. Room was spacious, clean, bed very comfortable and fantastic view on 12th floor. Staff at the hotel are very helpful and friendly. Overall great stay would definitely stay here again.
