“New, Friendly, Accessible, Comfortable”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2012

I just returned from and 8 day stay in Amsterdam on business at the RAI. I stayed at the brand new Crowne Plaza Amsterdam South and couldn't have been happier or more comfortable.

It is centrally located, from a business perspective, in South Amsterdam which is a fast growing area for business and technology. Access to the Amsterdam Zuid (south) station is a short walk away which services the Subway and the Train. On the other size of Zuid is the Tram and buses. Each or any of these can quickly, cheaply and easily have you in any part of Amsterdam in 10 - 25 minutes depending upon where you want to go.

The hotel is top notch. The rooms were large, the lounge was comfortable and full amenities, and the staff were always accommodating and helpful.

If there was one thing that could be improved upon it would be the wireless network connectivity. It did range in strength radically based on location. That said, it worked and throughput was very workable.

Obviously staying in downtown has distinct advantages, but comfort and large rooms will not be one unless you want to pay through the nose. If you don't mind or are adventurous when it comes to transportation, then I would highly recommend this hotel location.

Room Tip: Construction of a new building is taking place on the East side of the building. It starts at 8am a...

Dear valued guest,

Thank you so much for informing us through Tripadvisor about your stay with us at the Crowne Plaza Amsterdam- South. It was an absolute pleasure to read your very positive and complimentary words about our location, facilities and staff. Reviews like these give us extra motivation to continue to work on improving our product and service.

We also sincerely appreciate the fact that you pointed out an improvement point. As we live in an era in which social media and internet play a vital role in both the business- as private life of most individuals, offering fast and properly functioning internet should absolutely be one of the points of focus in any hotel.

The hotel is set in a major new development area in Amsterdam: the Zuidas. This area is rapidly becoming a new urban centre devoted to international commerce and knowledge development. Also apartment buildings are being developed of which one close by the hotel. The construction of the foundation, which was at times audible in the hotel, has now been finished. Any nuisance to our guests should therefore have come to an end.

Once again we thank you for your review and we hope to have you back as our guest upon your next visit to Amsterdam.

With kind regards,

Ingrid van Veen
General Manager

Stayed at this hotel for 4 nights during this trip. It was a toss-up between this Hotel Okura in Amsterdam and Crowne Plaza Amsterdam South but decided to go for Crowne Plaza instead.

Got checked in to a corner room. It was a very quiet room and i believe the windows are double glazed. They have beautifully appointed rooms and room interior is modern. Nice spacious bathroom. Bed is perfect and I definitely got a good night's sleep.

In terms of transportation, very convenient - short walk away from Amsterdam Zuid station, tram lines going to the city center and just about anywhere in Amsterdam. If you are driving, parking along the street is free from 7 pm to 9 am on weekdays and all day on weekends.

Staff was friendly and helpful with good dinner recommendations.

Definitely a good choice.

Dear valued guest,

Thank you for your choice to stay at the Crowne Plaza Amsterdam- South and for sharing your experience on Tripadvisor.

It was a pleasure to read that you enjoyed staying in one of our rooms and that a good night’s sleep was the result. The IHG Sleep Advantage program including special bedding, sleeping tips and aromatherapy might have contributed to that.

Great as well that you discovered the nearby presence of the several convenient public transportation options and parking at a moderate rate.

We sincerely hope to be your hotel of choice in the near future.

The recent Crowne Plaza in Amsterdam South is a great option for those who don't necessarily require to stay in the center of Amsterdam and are usually in town for business. The hotel is very well equipped, the rooms are spacious and very well decorated. The staff is good and attentive and they're always willing to help you out. The restaurant and bar are also of good quality.

Dear valued guest,

We were very happy to read your review on Tripadvisor in which you positively mentioned our location.

The Crowne Plaza Amsterdam- South is situated at the Zuid-As of Amsterdam, a new urban centre devoted to international commerce and knowledge development. The location is unique as Amsterdam Schiphol International Airport, the RAI Convention Centre and the city centre are only a few minutes away by public transport or rental bike. This makes the hotel a suitable choice for both business as leisure guests.

We were pleased as well that our rooms were to your taste and your compliment about the staff members is a motivation for all of us to continue our focus on service delivery.

Being a new hotel in the highly competitive Amsterdam hotel market means that our room rates are influenced by the activity in the market. In high demand periods with large fairs and exhibitions our rates will therefore be higher than in low demand periods.

Thank you again for sharing your feedback and we hope to see you again in our hotel in the near future.

With kind regards,

Ingrid van Veen

I did a pretty long way across the whole Germany and the Netherlands to watch an event by the sea in Zandvoort. Too much tired I arrived in this obviously brand new property. Transportation from downtown AMS pretty easy, just about 100 metres from the subway. I was amazed by the architecture, quite unique and different from the other countries. Water, nature and respect are at first sight. My room was at the top - 11th - floor with a perfect view of the city. Met couple of friends at the bar and we had some delicious burgers and sandwiches, but I enjoyed my sleep, eventhough affected by the fact that I was really tired after my journey. I didn´t have a breakfast because of time, but anyway: definitely would love to come back soon!

Dear valued guest,

Thank you very much for your review on Tripadvisor and for letting us know how you perceived the Crowne Plaza Amsterdam- South. Being a brand new member of the Crowne Plaza family in the highly competitive Amsterdam market, we are especially pleased to have met your expectations.

The area in which the hotel is situated, the Zuidas, is a continuously developing business area in which not only offices of large multinationals are situated but nice restaurants and shops as well. Did you know that you can join an architecture walk, during which more can be learned about the spectacular architecture in the surroundings of the hotel?

After an interesting walk, our Manhattan Lounge – Bar is the place to be for a refreshing drink and snack before starting a well- deserved night of sleep. Perhaps you know that Crowne Plaza has worked together with a sleep doctor and founder of the British Sleep Society, Dr. Chris Idzikowski, to improve the sleep experience at Crowne Plaza hotels to ensure guests get a great night’s sleep. This Sleep Advantage program features Quiet Zones (our fifth floor), plump soft pillows, luxurious duvets, deeply indulgent mattress toppers, sleeping tips and aroma therapy.

Thank you again for your review and we definitely hope to welcome you back in the very near future.

With kind regards,

Ingrid van Veen

Great room, wonderful service. The interior is just perfect, so modern. It's a boutique hotel. They offer free lemonade by the reception. The location of the hotel is nearby the Amsterdam zuid(south) station. Extremely convenient to get here from schiphol airport by train. It takes 7 minutes and costs 2,5 euros. It's very silent inside the hotel and unlikely that something or someone will wake you up during the night or in the morning. The wifi isn't free, you can pay daily.

What a fantastic hotel. After staying at some really terrible hotels in Europe i've decided to stick with the chains and this one certainly didn't disappoint.

The hotel is in an extremely calm and quiet area of Amsterdam and is a 2 minute walk from Amsterdam Zuid railway station. There are direct trains from here to Schiphol Airport and the Metro 51 also goes from here into Centraal Station! You can also catch the tram 5 into the city from just behind the station. It is dead easy to travel from this hotel so don't let the location put you off!

The room was spotless and extremely modern. I loved the decor.

The staff were extremely friendly and welcoming. The staff on reception would always say hello when we arrived back at the hotel in the evening. Even the cleaning staff greeted us as we walked past them on our floor.

I also ordered room service on the first night of the stay. It was after 11pm so I did not have the option of the full menu. The selection on the 24 hour menu was still very good.

I chose the Manhattan Burger and it was very tasty and the fries were lovely. I would definitely stay at a Crowne Plaza hotel again. Top marks!

Room Tip: Rooms on high floors have a great view

This hotel is a little way from the centre, but there is a tram just a 2 minute walk from the hotel, which stops right in the centre!! This also means being able to see alot more of Amsterdam that you wouldn't usually see staying right in the centre. The hotel staff were wonderful, very polite and even let us check in early as our room was ready, a very much appreciated bonus! The hotel is located by station Zuid (south station) which is quicker to get to from the Schipol airport than it takes to get to centraal station from the airport, very handy for catching flights!! The room was lovely and spacious, very clean and the bed was one of the most comfortable i think i have ever stayed in!! Would definately recommend this hotel to any kind of guest, the staff were more than accommodating and would quite happily explain directions to different places we wanted to visit!! I would thoroughly suggest you book without hesitation, the area is lovely and peaceful so you get a good nights sleep!! Will definately return!!
