“nice and comfortable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2012

I found this hotel very quiet and comfortable with good food and friendly staff. i sincerely hope they can contain this level of service as the hotel matures. On bad point is the car parking charges 41 Euros to park overnight is extortionate.

Dear valued guest,

Thank you very much for sharing your feedback and comments following your recent stay at Crowne Plaza Amsterdam- South; it will help us to further meet and exceed our customer’s needs.

It was very motivating for us to read that you are so positive about the comfort, food and staff of the hotel. As we are passionate about delivering high service and hospitality we will definitely do whatever possible to maintain this in the future.

We are however concerned to read about your comment with regards to the parking charges. Indeed it is totally understandable that you consider these charges too high. As Amsterdam is one of the busiest cities of the Netherlands, the parking pressure is very high. In order to keep the city reachable and stimulate the use of public transport, the local authorities keep the parking fees very high.

Should you prefer to come to Amsterdam by car it is an option to park at one of the Park & Ride areas and travel from there to the hotel by public transport. For more information please refer to http://www.amsterdam.info/parking/park-ride/

We look forward to the opportunity of welcoming you back to Crowne Plaza Amsterdam- South in the very near future.

With kind regards,

Ingrid van Veen
General Manager

3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2011

This is a new hotel close to the Zuid station. The location is very good for a business traveller but wouldn't be a first choice for a holiday visit as there are better options near Amsterdam central. There is very little to do near here except work in the offices near by or use the train station to travel further in to the city.

The hotel itself was very clean and the rooms were standard Crown Plaza class (which is very high compared to most hotels). The bed was comfortable and the staff were very polite.

The downside was that there were a few minor problems. The bathtub wasn't clean when I checked in, the TV wasn't working and they billed my credit card twice after I checked out. I did fill out their survey and the hotel was quick to apologise for the mistake.

The other problem I see with this hotel is that they don't offer long term rates for frequent business travellers and there are many who come from all over to work in the nearby world trade center. As a result, I prefer other hotels in the area now.

If they fix the minor issues and be more price competitive then this hotel would deserve a higher rating. Its certainly an excellent hotel in most respects but as the title says - it could be better.

Dear valued guest,

Thank you very much for taking the time to post your feedback regarding your recent stay at the Crowne Plaza Amsterdam South. We appreciate it that you took the time to write about your experience in our hotel.

It was very motivating to read that you enjoyed and recognised the Crowne Plaza standards of the rooms and that you considered our staff polite. On the other hand you had some negative experiences for which I would like to offer you my sincere apologies.

The cleanliness of the room is a crucial point for each traveller so your remark about the bathtub has been forwarded to the Housekeeping Manager in order to prevent this from happening again. Also your feedback regarding the double charging of your credit card is taken very serious and will be brought under the attention of the Reception staff. Please be assured that we are always aiming to satisfy and impress our guests and that this is certainly not representative of the usual service excellence here at the hotel.

With regards to the not functioning television, I would like to inform you that the telephones in the guestrooms have a Manager on Duty- and an Instant Service button to help you with whatever needed. If you will return to our hotel, which I do hope, you can report any malfunctions or requests through these buttons so we can be of service to help you immediately.

Our location within the business district is indeed perfect for business guests. Even though we probably are not the first choice for leisure guests, there are several public transport connections that bring you in downtown Amsterdam within 20 minutes.

Finally I would like to inform you that the hotel does offer long term rates; please contact our sales department on amspc.sales@ihg.com for more details and information.

Again thank you very much for taking the time to write this review and we sincerely apologize for the inconvenience caused. We do hope that we can look forward to welcoming you back to the Crowne Plaza Amsterdam- South in the near future. In the meantime, if we can be of any further assistance, please do not hesitate to contact us.

With kind regards,

Ingrid van Veen

This hotel has recently opened. Located in the south, the business center of Amsterdam. Easily reachable by car and public transport. The rooms are very nice. Excellent sleeping quality,large bathroom. Some things were missing but they are working on it. A guest directory, writing paper and a pen was missing.
The service in the bar is great. Nice staff with a good knowledge of the hotel, area and food & beverages for sale at the bar. Also the Manager on Duty was very kind.
Breakfast staff is very friendly. Eggs were made fresh by the kitchen staff upon request. Truly great.
Service at the front desk needs improvement. Not well known in the area. We were going to a restaurant close by but they didn't know the location. The Manager on Duty helped us out. The strange thing was when I returned home and I noticed I forgot some medicine. As I needed the box I called the hotel and found out they located the box. When I requested it to be sent they weren't ready for it as there was no procedure for it yet and they didn't have any boxes to sent it in. The next day I travelled by car to pick it up. So this part of the hotel service needs definitely improvement.

We have been staying with our son, and experience has been wonderful. The hotel staff warm, friendly and very professional. Being new site, you premiering all things. Transport very fast, it takes about 15 minutes to reach the center. The restaurant service of hihg quality and good prices. In short, celebrating our silver wedding had a good climax. From Toledo (Spain) I recommend it.

Stayed at this hotel during a work meeting. The hotel was opened only few days before so somethings was not ready or, I'll say "not yet available", like the breakfast selection was improving from day to day. It is located near the WTC just at walking distance. I found the hotel room very comfortable, modern and clean. The shower is in the bath, protected by a glass window, the furniture are really good. Minibar selection was quite good, but a bit expensive. The general looknof hehotel is reaaly nice, in front of a small water channel filled with birds... People at the reception were nice . i found this experience a good discovery. I'll come back for sure, next time I'll come in Amsterdam.

A very good experience at the Crowne Plaza Amsterdam South, and, if you are a customer of Crowne Plaza, you will get the same taste.
My feeling was that, being opened (officially) from days when I checked in, a few things had to be tuned.
At the check in, at 2.20 pm, my room was not ready; I understand that the check-in time was at 3.00pm, but the hotel was not so crowded, in any case; anyway, after having a sandwich at the bar (very good sandwich) I was rewarded with a nice room, overlooking the small channel at the side of the hotel, with a terrace - unlickily I could not enjoy because of the weather.
The morning after, I wanted an omelette for breakfast, but there was no ham or cheese to feed into it, but the morning after, both were available!
So, good staying, in the end, staff members are very nice, friendly, and do whatever they can to make you feel welcome.
Room is more than comfortable, very quite, no noise at all
I will definitely go back soon, I'm recommending it, no doubt

Dear valued guest,

Thank you so much for taking the time to post your enthusiastic review following your recent visit at Crowne Plaza Amsterdam- South. We are delighted to read you had a great stay at our hotel.

As you wrote we still have some fine tuning to do and because of your review we know the areas which need improvement. Indeed the official check-in time is at 15:00 but we would be pleased to offer you the room on check-in when it is available. Due to the fact that we were just open we want to check the rooms very carefully to make sure the room is prefect when you enter.

The breakfast menu is something that is evolving each day. Each day we are delighted to receive suggestions from our guests how we could improve their breakfast time.

We are honoured to read that you would recommend the Crowne Plaza Amsterdam- South. Please be assured that we have shared you kind comments with the entire team.
